Ice skating over Chanukah

For those of us coming from chutz l’aretz, Chanukah generally is associated with winter sports such as sledding, skiing and skating.  In Israel, it is a bit warmer so we look to other sports.  However, if you still miss ice skating, here is a list of the places in Israel you can go:

  1. ISkate– located in Tel Aviv inside Luna Park. Open “every day of the year.”  The hours on Chanukah (28 Nov-5 Dec) are 10:00-22:00.  Leumi card and Isracard holders get a 1+1 discount.  American Express card holders get a free ticket with 1200 points (not including Blue).
  2. Canada Center– located in Metula.  Open Monday-Saturday. It is cheaper to buy tickets online than at the door.  Leumi card holders can get a 1+1 discount. If you don’t have one, you can get 10% off admission by clicking on this coupon:  cupon
  3. Yes Planet in Rishon L’zion will be opening a ice skating rink especially for Chanukah is honor of the new Disney movie “Frozen” (לשבור את הקרח).  Whoever buys a ticket to the movie or spends at least 25 shekels in the restaurant (kosher) can ice skate for free! Including skates!
  4. AchlaKerach– located in Maalot.  Open every day of the week.  Visa CAL card holders get a 1+1 discount.
  5. Ice Peaks– located in Holon.  Open every day of the week. Visa CAL and Leumi card holders get a 1+1 discount and there any many more discounts available through different groups- click here for a full listing.
  6. Ice Peaks– located in Kenyon Lev, Ashdod.  Also has discounts but recommends you check with your credit card/ group web site.
  7. Ice Mall– located in Eilat.  Open every day of the week.  For those who miss Vegas, this sounds like a good replacement.  Some of the attractions in the mall include an ice train, a snow igloo, and Babylon games park, along with all the other clothing stores and restaurants.  50% discount for Eilat residents.
  8. Ice Space– located in Eilat.  If you are looking for that frozen experience but do NOT want to ice skate, this is the place.  It is a whole district made out of ice. There is sledding, sculpture exhibits and more.  They provide the winter gear.  Open every day of the week.  Visa CAL and Isracard holders get a 1+1 discount.

Each place has a different minimum age for entrance- check before going.  None of these places allow pregnant women to skate.  Prices are by the hour or half hour so check before you go.
