Posted: Updated:

If you aren't into skating outside and are looking for a very unique Chicago experience, the new Skating in the Sky rink at the John Hancock Center might be just the adventure you're looking for.

The Hancock Center plans to open an "ice" rink on the 94th floor observatory on Jan. 1. The 900 square-foot skating area is made of a state-of-the-art synthetic substance called XTRAICE.

People will be able to skate every day from Jan. 1 to March 31 from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.

Each skating session costs $5 and lasts only 25 minutes. If you don't have skates, you can rent them for $1. To book the skating session ahead of time, visit their website for tickets. Learn more about Skating in the Sky here.
