On December 19th through January 5th, a real winter wonderland will be coming to the central coast! Back by popular demand, Winter Wonder SLO returns to the Madonna Inn Expo Center for the third year in a row. This ice skating rink is great fun for all ages, and is a San Luis Obispo holiday staple that cannot be missed! Made up of 4500 square feet of real ice, this beautiful ice skating rink is a great place to experience a “real winter” this holiday season. Take your family, friends or special someone to experience the “winter wonderland” of the central coast!
This year, the brand-new theme for Winter Wonder SLO is “Candy Land”, so come prepared for a “sweet” time! The entire venue including the ice skating rink will be decorated with a “Candy Land” feel. Kramer Events is proud to assist with this “sweet” theme, by providing Winter Wonder SLO with some extra sparkle with some of our beautiful lighting. The Kramer Team has been hard at work ensuring Winter Wonder SLO will have the perfect holiday ambiance during its run. We’ve been installing string lights, candy-colored lanterns, and speakers so that guests can enjoy some holiday tunes while skating!
In addition to ice skating, Winter Wonder SLO guests can also enjoy some delicious treats catered by local vendors. Ice skaters can munch on yummy churros and nachos, which were a favorite last year. The Village Bean of Cambria returns, and will be serving specialty coffee, hot chocolates, and baked goods. Finally, Powell’s Sweet Shoppe of San Luis Obispo will be selling their famous gourmet candy. Powell’s is giving back to the community this holiday season, as 100% of the proceeds made at Winter Wonder SLO will go toward the San Luis Obispo chapter of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Ice skating passes are sold in one hour “sessions”, with session times running from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. Hurry now and book your session! For individual ice skating sessions, adult tickets are $13 (ages 13+), and children’s tickets are $9 (ages 12 and under). Rental skates are included in the ticket price. Avid ice skaters had the option to purchase the sold-out Winter Wonder SLO “Golden Ticket”. Good for any session on any date, the Golden Ticket is valid for 17 skating sessions, which can be used over time or all at once. These tickets are also transferable, so they can be used and given to someone else. The Golden Ticket is perfect for individuals who love to skate, as well as families, groups, organizations or companies. The Golden Ticket also makes a great stocking stuffer for friends and family members! Only 200 of these special tickets were sold, and they quickly sold out! A portion of all proceeds made from ticket sales will go to the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization.
Don’t miss this fun holiday event! Be sure to purchase your Winter Wonder SLO tickets in advance, as this popular event often sells out!
