OdySea in the Desert brings “OdySea ChillFest,” a seasonal skating entertainment venue, to Scottsdale’s newest entertainment district. From December 21, 2017 through January 6, 2018, OdySea ChillFest, a premium ice skating area, offers ice skate rentals, daily family fun activities, and an array of special holiday events, adding to the already impressive schedule of holiday fun planned at OdySea in the Desert.

Kids of all ages can skate with “holiday mascots” during many of the days, while evening entertainment on selected days includes the show-stopping Snowgirls Holiday Revue, a performance that got its start in Las Vegas and is filled with all the glamour spectators love about ice-skating — the glitz, sequins, theatrics, attitude and style!  ChillFest offers “Tips & Tricks” lessons with the pros and other events include Snow Blitz with falling snow and wintry special effects. ChillFest hosts, guests and entertainment include some of Scottsdale’s top figure skating and ice skating professionals.

The ice rink will be offered on the following dates/times:

Dec 21-23: 11am-9pm

Dec 24-25: 11am-3pm

Dec 26-30: 11am-9pm

Dec 31, Jan 1: 11am-3pm

Jan 2-6: 11am-9pm

“Despite Scottsdale’s temperate winter climes, part of the magic of the holidays for many residents and visitors alike includes snowy weather,” said Amram Knishinsky, Ph.D and founder of OdySea in the Desert. “With ChillFest, we are bringing a winter wonderland to the valley with first-class holiday entertainment that is sure to guests in the spirit of the season.” 

Other holiday fun at OdySea in the Desert includes s’mores kits for toasting around the new outdoor fire pits around the ice rink throughout OdySea in the Desert’s holiday themed, outdoor courtyard. The brand new OdySea Express train will also be running as part of the Holiday festivities, touring guests around the destination with music, lights, and real train smoke and sounds!

The S’mores kits and fire pits will be available from 4:00pm-8:00pm December 21, 2017 through January 6, 2018 nightly (excluding December 24th, December 25th, December 31st and January1st)
