100% chance of ICE in Downtown Roanoke's Elmwood Park!

Now Open Through February 12th! Click here for a full daily schedule!

WDBJ7's Elmwood on Ice, brings an exciting entertainment option to Downtown Roanoke. 

New this year...We've added an ICE SLIDE for even more fun!

Plus welcome our new Seals! 

We have 5 seal ice skating aids (Skittles, Lou-Seal, Prissy Sparklepants, Millie, and Klondike) that give beginners something steady to hold on to while they learn to skate or allow little (and big) skaters to take a load off and be pushed around. There is no cost to use our seals. Time limits may be imposed depending on demand.
