What is your refund policy?
No refunds will be given so we encourage you to check the weather and condition of the ice before purchasing your ticket to skate.

What do I do with my personal belongings while I skate?

Do you have to purchase a ticket to the Coyote Drive-In in order to ice skate?

Yes you can but you will still need to pay the $10 admission charge to skate. We reserve the right not to allow a person to use their own skates if we decide that they are not suitable. Speed skates are not allowed.

What if it is raining?
You will get wet! The rink can operate in nearly all weather conditions. Please bring suitable outdoor clothing. This is an outdoor event and no refunds will be given due to inclement weather. In the unlikely event that the manager deems it necessary to close the ice rink, alternative sessions will be offered for skating, subject to availability.

All lost property will be kept at the Ice Rink Box Office.

At what age can I bring my children?

Will food and beverages be available?
Yes. Seasonal food and beverages will be available in addition to the full menu offered at the Coyote Canteen.

What type of clothing should I wear?
The ice rink is outdoors and therefore you should plan to dress warm enough to sustain being outside in the daily conditions. Socks are required and will be available for purchase on site or you can bring your own. Gloves are recommended regardless of the conditions and will also be available for purchase on site.

Are there restrooms available?
Yes. However you cannot access them while wearing skates.  You must remove your skates before going to the restroom.

What happens to the profit made at the ice rink?
Revenues from the skate rentals will cover installation and staffing expenses at Panther Island Ice. Any proceeds will go in to programming and capital improvements on Panther Island.

Can I have a party at Panther Island Ice?
Yes, if you are interested in combining ice skating with a reserved table, food and beverage, or movie tickets, please contact Brianna@coyotedrive-in.com to book a party package. If you are only interested in bringing a group  of 15 or more to ice skate, please contact info@trinityrivervision.org. Reservations do not guarantee skates will be available as  skates are on a first-come, first-serve basis. Calling ahead allows our management to be aware of large groups so they can better serve you.
