Coronado, CA — The Hotel del Coronado is pleased to present its sixth year of a unique Southern California experience – outdoor ice-skating overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The Del’s 10,000-square-foot Windsor Lawn, located just steps from the sand, is transformed into a picturesque ice rink for guests and visitors this holiday season. The historic Victorian Building, adorned with thousands of white lights, provides a magical backdrop for Skating by the Sea. Holiday music will fill the air and guests can purchase hot chocolate and libations.
Skating by the Sea offers fun for the whole family throughout the holiday season. From November 24 – December 17, three-hour skating sessions will be offered daily, 2:00pm – 5:00pm and 6:00pm – 9:00pm, with special matinee skating sessions from 11:00am – 1:00pm on weekends and holidays. From December 18 – January 2, 2011, all three skating sessions will be offered daily. This year, The Del is excited to present Disco on Ice, at the 6:00pm session on the first three Thursdays of December (12/2, 12/9 and 12/16). We’ll put the holiday music on hold and boogie down to `70s classics. Those who dress in disco attire will be awarded with free skate rental!
Three-hour sessions cost $20* for adults and $15* for kids (ages 10 years and under); two-hour matinee sessions cost $15* for adults and $10* for kids (ages 10 years and under). Skate rental is $5 per person. A portion of the skating proceeds will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of San Diego.
The Hotel del Coronado will also support the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of San Diego throughout December by hosting families who have a wish being granted in the San Diego area and by providing a complimentary skating day for the foundation’s many local ‘wish kids’.
Throughout December, The Del offers additional holiday fun for all ages including Victorian Tea, the Lamb’s Players Theatre’s annual production of An American Christmas, Sunday Brunch and holiday feasts.
*The matinee session in the only 2-hour session. Must pay for entire session regardless of time spent skating.
