Group Skating Reservations & Packages
Group rates are dependent upon group size and ages, as well as the day you choose to skate. Groups wanting to skate at Wollman Rink and take advantage of our reservation and discount opportunities may choose from one of the following two options:
- Make your group reservation with no deposit required: Reservations must be made at least three days prior to arrival. Wollman Rink group reservations are accepted anytime from October 21 – November 17. After November 17, reservations are available Monday through Friday (anytime), and Sundays (after 6:00pm). Restrictions and Black Out Dates Apply. Some dates and times fill up over a month in advance, so please book early. A group leader must make one total payment upon arrival, and then everyone in the group will enter together. This option is recommended for school groups.
- Purchase advance tickets from our sales office: When purchasing advance tickets, the same discounts apply as they would for a group with a reservation. The difference is that advance tickets may be used anytime Wollman Rink is open. Group leaders are responsible for handing out tickets prior to arrival at Wollman Rink. No one will be admitted without a ticket, and Wollman Rink does not hold tickets for individual pick up. Non-skaters in a group would pay the $5.00 spectator fee at one of our cashier windows. This option is recommended for corporate groups, large get-togethers, weekend groups, and holiday groups
