Frequently Asked Questions


The rink has grown this year! It is now 5,000 sq. ft. with a max capacity of 155 skaters.

Peak times are 5-8 p.m., and can be especially busy on weekends and during winter break for local schools. If you’d prefer to skate when it’s less crowded, the beginning and end of each day are typically a little less busy.

No! Our motto is "if you can walk, you can skate." We do ask that anyone under the age of 12 be accompanied by an adult. Please note: Parents are not allowed to carry their children while skating, nor are baby/toddler strollers permitted on the ice.

As you might expect, to ensure the ice stays frozen, it means it’s also cold under the tent! Please be sure to dress in layers so you’ll stay nice and warm, whether skating or just watching. Also, as condensation builds up in the rink, water does drip down from the tent structure above from time to time. We recommend wearing a hat and or raincoat with a hood to keep yourself nice and dry. We also recommend warm, crew-length socks to keep your feet comfortable while skating. We do not have helmets available, however, you are welcome to wear your own.

Yes! We know that weather in Olympia is unpredictable, that's why the ice rink is housed under a tent to protect the skaters and the ice from the elements.

Yes! We will have temporary restrooms available during the run of the ice rink.

Yes, we offer both.

We have skates from Toddler 9 to Adult 14. We do offer double-runners for children under the age of 4. Structured shoes, like sneakers or boots, are required for clamp on double-runners.

We offer double-runner skates in toddler sizes. We have a very limited number of skate aids that are available to rent and are available on a first come, first serve basis.

We do not. Elevate Sporting and the Sprinker Pro Shop in Tacoma are the closest outlets that sell figure and hockey skates. They also have skate sharpening services.

We welcome all guests at Oly on Ice. Guests who utilize mobility aids or who otherwise might need support on the ice are able to skate with the assistance of ice rink staff. This is dependent on availability of staff and if it is determined it will be safe to do so. Please contact rink staff at olympia@icerinkevents.com to discuss your specific accessibility questions.

No. Oly on Ice is not set up to accommodate ice hockey, recreational or otherwise.

Yes! There is no cost to come and watch. We have limited seating available for spectators and recommend you dress to stay warm.

Gift certificates are available for purchase at the rink during regular operating hours.

Oly on Ice is available on a limited basis, during regular, off-peak hours for Birthday Parties, depending on the number of guests. We are not able to host birthday parties during peak hours, which include Tuesday Cheap Skate Nights, Thursday Theme Nights, and Weekend Evenings.

Our “Party Area” is available for $55 for a 2-Hour Party (includes set-up and clean-up) with skaters ages 4 and up getting the group rate of $2 off per skater (ages 3 and under are $3 and there is no charge for non-skaters). The space includes three tables and benches, with approximate seating for 24 youth or 15 adults.

The Party Area is under the main tent – it is not a private room. We do not provide tablecloths, refreshments, or decorations, but you may bring your own, which we ask that you tidy up after your party.
