Foxwoods Ice Skating Rink Opens Thursday



    Foxwoods is celebrating the holiday season by opening a brand new outdoor ice skating rink and winter patio on Thursday.

    U.S. Champion figure skater Sasha Cohen and Brian Boitano will kick off the event at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 4 with a three-minute routine, according to a release from the casino.

    New York Ranger Dan Girardi and "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Amber Marchese will join them for opening day. Guests can also skate with Santa, drink hot chocolate and admire the rink's 30-foot Christmas tree.

    The outdoor rink includes more than 100,000 lights and is right next to the new winter patio, where skaters can warm up around fire pits while enjoying hot chocolate or toasting s’mores.

    The Foxwoods Rink & Winter Patio will be open seven days a week through March 8. Tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for kids. Skate rentals are $5 for adults and $2 for kids.

    Foxwoods Resort guests pay $8 apiece.
