Colorado chooses the best synthetic ice for their Event
Ice Rink Engineering and Manufacturing, LLC has a long history of participating in high profile shows and events. Ice Rink Engineering and its Theatrical Department were selected and featured at the XLVI Super Bowl and many other special events and shows such as Beach Ball, a charity event for the Children’s Hospital and other charities. EZ Glide 350 Synthetic Ice has been featured in movies and many television productions throughout the past 40+ years.
Most recently our company was selected by US Figure Skating, USA Hockey and USA Curling for a very special Olympic event held in front of the United States Olympic Committee Headquarters in Colorado Springs.
The event featured World Champion and Olympic Gold Medalist figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi and her husband, Olympian and Stanley Cup winner, Bret Hedican. Other world class skaters and athletes of all kinds were also featured at the event. The 1800 square foot EZ Glide 350 Synthetic Ice skating surface was installed the morning of the event and removed that evening immediately following.
This Olympic Celebration drew over 15,000 spectators and participants, running simultaneously with NBC’s broadcast of the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics, which was broadcast over a huge jumbotron television screen in the middle of downtown Colorado Springs.
Ice Rink Engineering and Manufacturing, LLC, its’ staff and International Dealers and Partners salute the Fire Fighters and the community of Colorado springs for its resilience, strength and its “fight back” attitude following the recent devastating wildfire that claimed over 350 homes across the magnificent landscape they call home. We salute you all!
We can, without hesitation, state that the Olympic Celebration in Colorado Springs, the community spirit, its’ Fire Department and the world class training centers in Colorado Springs are at the top of their game. They are winners in every respect and they produced a world class event – the best we have seen in a long time!
Our South Carolina company salutes all of you!
