Synthetic Ice Rink Brings Holiday Cheer to TCU

Synthetic ice rinks are becoming so popular they’re even beginning to pop up on college campuses. And they’re not just for hockey teams anymore.

When the Student Government Association at Texas Christian University wanted to bring a little extra holiday spirit to campus this year, they gave Artificial Ice Event’s a call. The result: a synthetic ice rink for students and community members to enjoy. And enjoy they most certainly did.

The idea for bringing the 20-by-30-foot rink to the Fort Worth campus was first thought of by Kennedy Stewart, Programming Council Chair. Stewart said the school is always trying to brainstorm new and exciting ways to up the holiday spirit on campus. After seeing an artificial rink at a programming council conference last year, Stewart immediately thought it would be a great addition to the school’s annual tree lighting ceremony.

Synthetic Ice Benefits

Artificial ice is environmentally-friendly, cost-efficient, easy to install and maintain, and extremely versatile. A rink can be built on just about any solid, flat surface, indoors or out, no matter the temperature.
