WICHITA — Towne West Square has what sounds like some cool news: It’s getting an ice rink.
Wichitans may enjoy the rink, but it’s not likely to cool anyone off this hot summer.
That’s because the Glide Plaza that Salvador Marroquin is bringing to the mall next month is made of synthetic ice instead of water-based ice.
Abby Marr, the mall’s director of marketing and business development, says the plastic surface will look and feel like the real thing, though.
“It will draw people to the property who just want to try something new in the middle of the summer,” she says.
When the mall is open, the rink will be, too.
