Skate the Stadium returns to Credit One Stadium

CHARLESTON, S.C. (Palmetto Life) – Credit One Stadium is getting ready to be converted to an ice skating rink for the second year in a row.

Skate the Stadium returns on Nov. 24.

Last year, the event sold out in two days. As of Thursday morning, tickets were still available on the stadium’s website.

For $10, guests will get a skate rental and 45 minutes to skate. Children 13 and under must be with an adult.

“Our goal is to bring joy to the community during this special season,” Chris Meany, General Manager of Credit One Stadium, said. “Skate the Stadium is an opportunity to create unforgettable memories with an experience unlike any other in the Lowcountry.”

For Skate the Stadium the floor of the stadium is replaced with a custom-built synthetic ice rink.
