Ice is being put down on the rinks at this very moment, equipment is being installed and locals could be skating there by early next week.
The plan is to open the facility to local skaters for “open skate” times starting next week — possibly as soon as Monday. Follow Ion on social media for the latest on when this starts. This open skating will run until June 10 when summer camp programs start.
The grand opening weekend is scheduled for June 15 and 16, with a slate of activities and famous stars from the world of skating.
The Burn got an exclusive tour of the new facility which includes two NHL regulation sized rinks, stadium seating for up to 3,500 people, a restaurant, multiple concession stands (including beer and wine service), fitness rooms, multiple locker rooms, meeting rooms, a dance studio and more.
This is going to be a world class facility. You know how you can tell it’s a big deal — Pepsi is printing up special Ion International Training Center cans for the grand opening.
