Due to the higher than expected interest and anticipated large crowds, Midtown Crossing and The Salvation Army have made the decision to move the originally-envisioned rooftop skating rink to a ground level location in midtown Omaha. The rink will be reconstructed at 3409 Farnam St., just west of Mutual of Omaha Bank.
“We want the experience to be accessible and special for everyone, and in the final analysis we realized anticipated large crowds could overwhelm the capacity of the rooftop space. Since safety and positive guest experience are paramount, we made the choice to relocate the rink to an area better equipped to handle the activity,” said Molly Skold, Midtown Crossing’s vicepresident of marketing & communications. “The important elements will remain. The rink can be open regardless of the temperatures, and we look forward to raising money and awareness for a great organization.”
The opening of the rink (originally set for Saturday, December 2) is now set for Saturday, December 9. Just as before, the skating venue will encompass a 60’ x 80’ all-weather “synthetic ice” rink, skate rental shack, fire features, seating, audio and lighting. Admission (including skate rental) is $5 with all proceeds benefiting The Salvation Army.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding, and we look forward to having a fun filled time in the heart of our urban core – only now, on the ground level,” Skold said.
