You can use any number of your skate passes each day (meaning you can use them for a large group in one day or spread them out). Hours are usually 3-9 pm on Monday-Thursday, 3-10 pm on Friday, 10 am - 10 pm on Saturday, and 1-7 pm on Sunday. Guests will enjoy skating on real ice! Coin operated small lockers are available for $0.50 while skating.

There are still some great deals available on Instant Pots... they make a great gift! I just got mine and I love it. They make delicious dinners (I made pot roast last night - the meat was unbelievably tender and it easily pulled apart) and they're really easy to use. Here are a few of the best deals I've spotted on them:
