The Ice Zone will reopen next week.
Owner Bruce Zoldan, the owner of Phantom Fireworks who closed the Boardman ice skating rink in May, said Tuesday the Ice Zone will reopen Aug. 21.
Zoldan closed the rink due to “soaring upkeep costs,” according to a company statement.
The company’s statement says public skates, pick-up hockey and freestyle figure skating will resume when the Ice Zone reopens. They will also rent out the facility’s larger rink on an hourly basis.
The Olympic-sized rink can be rented for $325 per hour from September through March 2014.
In addition, the Ice Zone will continue to operate its pro shop, skate rental, concession stand and array of arcade games.
The NHL-sized ice sheet, however, will remain closed, the company said.
