Gliding on thin ice

Posted December 20th, 2012 at 06:05 PM by Dakota

Well, not really. More like thick ice. My friends and I are planning to go ice skating on Sunday, and I can't wait. What I can't understand though is why the prices vary so much. Maybe it has to do with the fact I'm going to rinks in the middle of NYC. But a ticket of admission at Central Park costs a whopping $11. Rentals are another $8 I think. And there's a spectator fee. I don't even know what that is, you can't actually charge a person to watch, can you? Anyhow, needless to say I'm not going to go skating at Central Park. Instead, I'll be going to a rink a block away from Citi Field where the lowly New York Mets play baseball. Derp.

On a side note, stay safe tomorrow guys, since it's apparently the end of the world. Be worried of the people around you, some people might take #YOLO to a new extreme. Myself, I wish I could say that I'm gonna go partayyyyyy. But nah. I'm gonna go home and nap. Hehe.

    On their premises, they can charge you for whatever they want. And given how ice skating is, for most people, a Christmassy thing they'll take full advantage of that and whack their prices up. You're being overcharged badly right there.

    Haha, given that it's Central Park in the New York City, I guess it's a tourist trap. And the prices were jacked up from what I last remember actually, I just realized. The place by Citi Field is only charging 13 for everything. =P

    That sounds cheap for Midtown Manhattan. And the only time I was there was 2007.

    Is it really? I don't go skating in the city often, but I know the jacked the prices up for Christmas. If that's not so bad according to you... then I'm really confused. lol

    I was never skating while in Manhattan, but I was surprised to see skating that cheap considering how expensive everything else was when I was there.
