Skaters pack new ice rink in downtown Greenville

GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Dozens of eager skaters packed downtown Greenville's newest addition - an ice-skating rink.

"Ice On Main" is located in front of the Courtyard Marriott at the corner of Broad and Main streets.

The 3,200 square foot rink has real ice and uses special equipment to maintain the frozen surface in the warm, South Carolina winter.

Some members of Greenville's hockey team, the Road Warriors, were on hand for the opening.

"(It's) good for the kids to come out and get a chance to skate with some of my players and the coaching staff," said Road Warriors head coach Dean Stork. "It's just a great thing, I think, for the holiday season."

The rink is open daily until Jan. 8.

Skaters can bring their own skates, or they can rent a pair at the rink.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children under 12 years old.
