Current Wichita Ice Center News

Tuesday July 26th Update

8:30 AM :

Good morning.

After much work by Wichita Ice Center Staff and volunteers from our skating community to get the Olympic Rink up and running it is heartbreaking to announce that the ice surface is not at a skateable depth to be safe. Our team has worked around the clock and will continue to place water down on the sheet of ice with the hope to build enough ice to be able to skate tomorrow, July 27.

We had hoped to be up and running today but it is not possible.

All Ice Activities are still suspended at this moment and more updates will be announced as soon as possible.

Thursday July 21st Update

11:00 AM :

Rink Management and the City of Wichita continue to work with our mechanical contractor to fix the continued mechanical issues at the Ice Center.  We like each of our customers are hoping to be able to be open soon but we want to ensure it is a safe and enjoyable experience upon return.    Please know we are working diligently to rectify all issues and hope to be up and running soon.   

 

Any further information or questions may be directed to our Regional Manager at his email: louis.lombardo@rinkmanagement.com

Friday July 15th Update

4:00 PM :

Through our continued efforts we are happy to announce that the NHL rink is currently being cooled down and we are working to prepare to lay water.

We continue to monitor our systems and the ice making process may take slightly longer as we can only run our systems at 50% capacity at the moment.

We hope to be skating by next weekend and further updates will be provided over the next week.

Additional work is being performed on our mechanical systems to get our system back to 100% so that we can get the Olympic Rink ready as planned

Further information will be provided as soon as possible
