Anyone done an ice rink theme and got any pics to show of it?

Here's my first attempt at something like this:

    Oh wow that's cool! I love the idea of the seats around it too. Might have to do something similar, not an exact replica of course lol

    @Tony68k, lovely, but then, you always have such creative designs.

    It'll double as an outside swimming pool after the update too.

    Thanks for the kind comments x It's still got a little work to go, and I'm still going to attempt to get Lisa and Homer skating on it. I was puzzling over what to do with my old football (soccer) stadium, then Christmas comes along at just the right time :)

    My favourite bit is the coffee shop, ready to warm people up with a nice hot drink.

    I think most of my town will develop into themed areas like this eventually.

    I did one in my main town area with the Christmas tree in the middle of it.

    I had to google "ice rink" to see what you meant :mrgreen:
    I have never been in one of those in my life.

    It's a great idea, looks awesome!

    Nice ice rink. I also like how you incorporated the news van into the parking lot, it looks like it is in a space! Well done.

    I'll probably get around to building one myself.

    At the rate that they are negotiating, I might try to get some of the locked out NHLers to play there! (Stupid greedy owners, grumble, grumble....)

    Thanks. The news van in the parking lot was someone else's idea from the forum that I borrowed. Can't remember who or where otherwise I'd post a link.

    I tried something similar before I got Santa's Village and needed more space...

    I obviously have far too much time on my hands...!

    Wow, really? I was going to ask where you live but I see it's Argentina. No ice-skating there then I take it?

    That looks pretty sweet. Just too bad we can't get characters to skate around it.

    Don't speak too soon, Tony's skills extend beyond mere building and 3D wizardry. He can do things with characters that will make your melon spin.

    I'd gladly have my melon split to see that.

    Granted, I'd also have it split to be able to play consistently and to post photos on this board.

    No ice-skating, or anything fun related to winter, only heavy rain.
    I saw snow only once in my entire life :cry:

    Aw. :cry:

    (we have indoor ice-rinks by the way that operate all year 'round, hence my surprise)
