The Company Party: Teambuilding on Ice

Last week we talked about birthday parties and kids’ parties at Philadelphia’s outdoor riverside ice skating rink, the Blue Cross RiverRink. But there’s another great possibility for this space: corporate team building events!

Nothing creates camaraderie like wobbling around on skates together, and if that sounds like a good idea for your office, the RiverRink is available for buyout rental: 90 minutes exclusive to your group, with the use of up to 500 pairs of skates! It’s $2500 for an afternoon skate (3:00 to 4:30pm, Monday through Thursday) or $5000 for a peak hours skate (5:00 to 8:30pm Monday through Thursday).

That afternoon skate could be just perfect for an afternoon break if you’re near the rink’s location — along Columbus Blvd. at Chestnut Street, on Penn’s Landing. It’s accessible to Center City Philadelphia in almost no time at all, which we suspect is ideal for a whole lot of local companies and working groups.

The later hours could be perfect for an evening happy hour, a reward for a job well done. The adjoining Lodge restaurant offers food & beverages. Your group can have exclusive access to the restaurant and bar if you’re renting the entire rink, and package deals are available on the food during your group’s 90 minutes!

This location is also conveniently located near a wide variety of restaurants and bars in Old City Philadelphia, in case any members of your team want to hold meetings or discussions after the skate — or simply relax, chat, and warm up with a mug of hot cocoa.

The ice skating season ends March 2 this year, so there’s only a little time left to schedule your exclusive team building event. Check out the rink rental options here today!
