New York JFK's TWA Hotel opening ice rink

New York JFK Airport's TWA Hotel is offering another way to kill time during this winter's inevitable cold weather delays.

It opens a new ice skating rink later this month dubbed the Runway Rink.

It will open seven days a week through the end of February, priced at $15 a go.

Ice skate rental is $10.

"Normally, when you hear about ice at the airport, it's not good news," said Tyler Morse, CEO of hotel operator MCR/MORSE Development.

"But in this case, people can get excited about a frozen tarmac at JFK - we're creating the Rockefeller Center of Queens."

The hotel opened to great fanfare earlier this year, featuring 512 rooms, meeting space and a rooftop pool with tarmac views.

The rink is located close to the Connie cocktail bar which is in a decommissioned Lockheed plane.
