$19-$29/ages 12 & under,  $29-$59/adults

Central Park’s Wollman Rink transforms into a glittering roller-disco paradise with art installations, photo ops, and soundscapes curated by Groovemaster Nile Rodgers. Skate and dance on a beautiful rainbow rink among pretty trees (though unshaded; bring water & sunscreen).

From 10:00am-4:30pm, book one-hour or three-hour open skating sessions. From 5:30-10:00pm, enjoy dazzling lights, live DJs, and a musical show with a cast of roller-skating performers. Tickets include 2 hours of skate time, plus live performances at 7:30 pm (also viewable from the bridge overlooking the rink). Talented skaters in groovy costumes dance on the rink throughout the evening (and can help if you fall). Come before or after your skate time for rinkside dance parties and lawn games like oversized Connect 4.

Bring your own skates or blades or rent a pair from The DiscOasis for $10.00 + tax. Don’t forget socks (though some available for purchase). Free skating aids available.

🌳 Cool off after in the sprinklers and streams of nearby Hecksher Playground.

🍽 The Café features an array of affordable menu items, including veggie flatbreads, pizza, tacos, french fries, hot dogs, chicken fingers, vegan options, slushees, a coffee bar and more. A pop-up from Harlem’s famous Melba on the upper deck serves signature dishes such as southern fried chicken wings & eggnog waffles.
