High temperatures and humidity, even tropical nights — the summer heat is in full swing. Some of you may have come back from vacation, or some may be about to leave for a vacation. Instead of going to the sea or a valley to escape the summer heat, why not go skating on a cool ice rink to enjoy winter sports in summer? Even if you do not plan for a vacation beforehand, you just need to head to an ice rink as a spur of the moment thing with friends and family to stay cool this summer!
These hot summer days, you will feel very hot even in short t-shirt and shorts. In the ice rink, you will feel frozen to the core beyond simply feeling refreshed. People who skate wear long pants and even a jumper.
After paying the admission fees and skate rental, you can enjoy skating all day long, so spending a day on the ice rink away from the scorching summer heat wouldn’t be too bad.
To enjoy the ice rink to the fullest, we recommend coming with your friends and family. As you take small steps awkwardly and fall on the ice rink, you will burst out laughing. Simply looking at a father and a child, holding hands and skating together, will make you feel warm inside.
Important tips! When you go to an ice rink, be sure to wear long-sleeved shirt and long pants and bring gloves as well. It is important to maintain your body temperature because the interior temperature of the ice rink is very low. It is also essential to prevent safety accidents.
Simply being in the ice rink for 5 minutes will make you feel cold and forget about the hot summer outside; after skating along the rink trying hard to stay up on your feet, however, you will soon feel the sweat on your forehead. Whether you skate well or not, smoothly sliding along the rink offers an enjoyable time for all.
