Slip and Slide Sock Skating Rink. Guests will be able to skip the skates and enjoy a wintertime tradition not often experienced in the South, wearing only socks.

Our indoor rink is made from a high-tech synthetic polymer surface that lets kids of all ages slide around without blades, runny noses or cold hands. Sock skating is the ideal challenge for beginning skaters.
