Attractions: Ice Skating on Fountain Square

Fountain Square is fun even in winter because if they can’t have live music, dancing and beer, they have ice skating, which is nostalgic, cuddly childhood kind of fun. The 7,000-square-foot rink (roughly the size of the rink at Rockefeller Center) is right in the center of the square with a view of the fountain and some buildings. Don’t worry about bringing your own skates; you can rent skates there.

There are also lockers for your shoes, benches to sit on while you lace up your skates/watch other people skate and a heated tent with vending machines for drinks and snacks.

Graeter’s is right there too so you can get some hot chocolate if you want it or ice cream. $2.50 admission and $2.50 skate rental. 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 11 a.m.-midnight Friday; 10 a.m.-midnight Saturday; 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday. Through Feb. 22.

Is the only thing you have to pay for is skate rental? Or is there other stuff you have to pay for? Thanks

Again, this article is 3 years old. Here's an up-to-date listing for the rink: http://citybeat.com/cincinnati/event-59762-fountain_square_ice_rink.html

Admission is $2.50 and skate rental is $2.50, so it's $5 all together or just $2.50 if you have your own skates.
