It's almost so small that it would be more appropriately called a "novelty" ice skating rink. 15.00 isn't so novel though.

The Rink actually fits 200 people and is made from harvested rainwater. The $15 includes ice skate rental and an hour and 1/2 of skate time. They always have great offerings throughout the season on deal sites.
