Can't get enough of synthetic ice? New York's American Museum of Natural History is opening an outdoor skating rink (the first in its 140-year history) on Nov. 22. Skaters at the Polar Rink, which will be able to accommodate up to 200 people during a one-hour skating period, will glide on the fake ice around a 17-foot-tall stainless steel polar bear decorated with lights and pine boughs. Since this is a museum, surrounding the rink will be facts about polar bears and the Earth's polar regions, as well as tips on how to be environmentally friendly. The rink's hours will be Monday-Thursday 12 p.m.- 8 p.m., Friday 12-11, Saturday and holidays 11-11, Sunday 11-8. Tickets will be $10 (inlcuding skate rental) for adults, $9 for seniors and students, and $8 for children ages 3-12. The rink will remain open through Feb. 28, 2009.
