Denver and United Airlines Are Bringing Extra Holiday Cheer

Link:   Denver Airport Schedule of Events

Denver airport and United Airlines have teamed up to give travelers a fun diversion to take the edge off a turbulent commute.  They’ve opened an ice rink to the public, and everything is free, including skate rentals!  The ice rink isn’t huge (it’s just a temporary platform, after all), but it’s a great stress reliever.

There are other festivities, too, like:

  • Live entertainment
  • A holiday market in the airport plaza
  • A holiday classic movie shown in the airport plaza

These activities are free, and a great way to pass your layover, whether you’re alone or with a group.  I’ve never been ice skating, but if I end up routing through Denver by January 1, I plan to give it a go!

Bottom Line

The Denver airport and United Airlines are bringing a little extra cheer to what can otherwise be a very chaotic travel season!

They have opened an ice rink with free admission and free skate rentals to travelers.  And other festivities, as well!

Wife and I just flew rtn to Denver from Seattle, (Day before the uproar of all the Alaska air cancelled flights into SEA), and the sign on the walking street in Denver says kids skates are free, adults $2. (pretty close to free). Loved Denver.

We flew out of SEA Dec 2 and rtn Dec 4th, wife and I needed a short mileage run and she needed 2 Hilton stays to maintain diamond. As Alaska had a $83 each way sale I thought we might ski a day in Breckenridge. Nice day but horrible prices there, mountain was $130 + tax for a day and only a quarter of the mountain was open. Huge lineups also. Don't know if things have changed but they used to reduce the price if not much was open.

Great flight on Alaska though.

Thanks for the report. I've never really explored Denver and look forward to doing that - and skating too!
