Lacing up the ice skates this winter? Look up – this ice rink is 1,000 feet high in the sky.
Located on top of Chicago’s John Hancock Observatory, a 900-square-foot rink constructed of state-of-the-art synthetic ice gives visitors the chance to skate in the sky.
Skate surrounded by 360-degree views of the Magnificent Mile, Lake Michigan and stretching across four states – Michigan, Indiana, Wisconsin and Illinois.
The rink is open from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day. Each 25-minute skating session is $5 on top of admission to the observatory. For those without their own skates, rentals are available on the 94th floor for just $1.
Book a skating session online at the John Hancock Observatory’s website.
