You no longer have to travel to cold winter countries to ice skate under the moonlight at VivoCity’s Viesta! The New York Edition 2018, the mall’s inaugural year-end event, has an outdoor ice skating rink as part of their Christmas celebrations.

Only outdoor ice skating rink in Singapore

The only outdoor skating rink in Singapore will be here for a limited time only, from Dec. 7 to Dec. 25.

The synthetic ice skating rink measures 35 metres by 10 metres and is located at VivoCity’s outdoor plaza:

In the middle of the ice skating rink is an 8 metre-tall Christmas tree where people can skate around it.

Different themes each night

  • Movie Mondays
  • Kpop Tuesdays
