Last Friday's Frozen Party was a smash hit, with about 500 guests enjoying the event. The popular Frozen theme encouraged so many guests to come that not everyone was able to skate that night. That's why next week, from July 28 to Aug. 1, we are allowing public session guests dressed in a Frozen costume to skate for free, AND they will receive a coupon for $2 off our Shark Week party on Friday, Aug. 15! We can't wait to see your costumes!
What's more fun for a party than go carts and Top Golf? Broomball at Chaparral Ice, said Bob, who recently hosted a traveling bachelor party for a friend. "Everyone had a blast, and many of the guys said it was the highlight of the weekend," he said. Broomball is similar to hockey, with brooms and balls on the ice instead of sticks and pucks -- and no skating skills required! The game is played in your favorite athletic shoes! For more information on broomball or other group reservations, contact Mindy at 512-252-8500 ext. 124, email@example.com. Maybe you will be our next "Broom Groom!"
