Grab your ice skates and skate around a historic TWA Lockheed Constellation at the TWA Hotel. Usually, a report of ice on the tarmac would be bad news. Just in time for Christmas, the TWA Hotel brings the RUNWAY RINK to JFK airport.
Beginning on November 30th, you can take some laps around a historic airliner and enjoy a drink at the “Connie Lounge”. The custom-made ice rink will measure 56-by-44 feet and feature skating shows inspired by the TWA Constellation history. The Runway Rink will be featuring frosty beers, Sno-Caps candy and other snacks and beverages. Just for good measure, you can watch a Zamboni ice grooming machine smooth out the ice.
The hotel will have custom TWA knit hats and scarves for sale featuring the iconic TWA logo. These are available online or at the TWA Store located in the hotel.
If you are really adventurous, you can take a swim in the heated, edgeless pool and observation deck on top of the hotel. This pool is heated up to 100 degrees and is open for guests year-round, weather permitting.

- Adults – $15.00
