Make Ice Skating Your New Holiday Tradition!



    Panther Island Ice Returns for the Holidays

    NBC 5 and Trinity River Vision Authority invite you to sharpen your skates. Fort Worth’s only outdoor ice skating rink is coming back! Panther Island Ice will open for the holiday season on November 20 and operate through January 18, 2016.

    Panther Island Ice, which features real ice, will be open seven days a week including holidays such as Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. Seasonal food and beverages will be available for purchase in addition to the full menu at the Coyote Canteen.

    Panther Island Ice will once again be located at Coyote Drive-In but a movie ticket will not be required to skate. Admission will be $11 which includes skate rentals, but discounts will be available. In the spirit of holiday giving, Panther Island Ice is partnering with the Tarrant Area Food Bank and every Tuesday, any patron who brings two canned goods to the ice rink will receive $2 off their admission. A military discount will also be available thanks to a generous contribution from Lockheed Martin. Group reservations and discounts for parties of 15 or more people will also be available. Visit for all available discounts. Gift certificates are also available.

    December 19th will feature a fireworks show set to Christmas music to celebrate the opening weekend of the new Star Wars movie.
