The TWA Hotel's Runway Rink
TWA Hotel Runway Rink

Lace up and speed skate over to JFK — our frozen tarmac awaits!

Freeze all plans! The TWA Hotel has opened the Runway Rink — a one-of-a-kind ice skating experience. Visitors and guests can take a spin on the tarmac around the hotel's 1958 Lockheed Constellation Connie airplane (now a cocktail lounge)! The custom 56-by-44-foot Runway Rink (made with good old frozen NYC tap water) operates seven days a week, weather permitting. 

The forecast also calls for frosty beers, Sno-Caps candy and an array of other snacks and beverages. Those looking to warm up can wrap themselves in The TWA Shop's cozy new winter accessories — including knit hats and scarves — which are sold both at the rink and online.

Admission is $15; $10 for kids under 12. Ice skates can be rented for $10 (kids under 12 rent for $8). 

Advance purchase tickets are not available, but we do offer packages for groups and kids’ parties. Email us to find out more!
