Seasonal rink takes skating into the sky:  It’s already one of Atlanta’s most unique venues, and now, The Roof at Ponce City Market is bringing a favorite holiday activity high above Atlanta’s busy streets.


Skate the Sky opened on November 20, and is a rooftop skating rink located over Ponce City Market.  In preparation for the rink, crews lifted a 120-ton glycol compressor onto The Roof, which will keep the ice cold enough through the season and also power air conditioning for Rooftop Terrace, the Roof’s private event space.  Open through Valentine’s Day, admission to Skate the Sky is $15 for adults and $8 for children 12 and under, and includes skate rental and 50 minutes of skating.  The rink is open from 12 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays, 3 p.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays, and 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Thursdays through Saturdays.  Admission after 5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays is restricted to those ages 21 and over.  By the way, along with Skate the Sky, visitors to The Roof at Ponce City Market may also visit beer garden Nine Mile Station and amusement area Skyline Park.


Good Day Atlanta’s Paul Milliken spent the morning high above the city, lacing up his skates for a look at this new seasonal destination.
