Open Skate

Open Skate Electronic Waiver

City National Arena has made the switch to electronic waivers and require ALL skating participants to have one filled out before getting on the ice. To avoid any additional wait times, the waiver is available online. ALL MINORS will need to have a waiver signed by a parent. Each skater will need to check in at the front desk to receive a hand stamp to signify which skate they are participating in, and the stamps can be checked by any skate guard or arena staff at any time.


Skate rentals are $3.00 per person and can now be pre-purchased when you sign up online for Open Skate! 


Please make sure to sign up for "Open Skate", NOT "Freestyle". Freestyle sessions are for skaters advancing out our of Learn to Skate program accompanied by a coach. This session is also for skaters that can do a toe loop jump with no need of a coach. Individuals can also take a power skating lesson or work on hockey skills but MUST have a coach present. Freestyle sessions are defined further on our Figure Skating page here.

  2. Once the account is created, you will click the drop down menu in the middle of the page to select what you would like to register for. If it is Open Skate, click that.

When opening up the Calendar, you will see the names "Summerlin Hospital Rink A" and "Ghost Energy Rink B". Summerlin Hospital and Ghost Energy Sponsor our rinks, meaning that is the name of each rink. 

When you see "Ghost Energy Rink B" with a corresponding time underneath, that means that we have public skate during that time on that rink. That does not mean Ghost Energy has it rented out. The same goes for Summerlin Hospital Rink A. 

EXAMPLE:          Ghost Energy Rink B     


This means we have public skate on Rink B from 10:30AM-11:30AM. Please call Guest Services at (702) 902-4904 for any questions.
