Wiscasset Skating Center featured Maine's first and only Synthetic Ice Surface. The surface, manufactured by "Xtra Ice" in Spain,
(www.xtraice.com) is the only synthetic surface endorsed by the NHL.
Wiscasset Skating was a division of Monkey C Monkey
Do, LLC, Maine's Premiere Aerial adventure park. A decision was made to purchase and install a synthetic surface to serve the local
population as well as a means of adding a fall and winter season to the Adventure Park which only operates mid-April to Mid-October.
After deciding to purchase a synthetic surface, months were spent gathering information and reviewing the pros and
cons of the different products on the market. Xtra Ice was chosen because it was considered by many to be the best in the marketplace,
and because of its unique method of assembly. A "tongue and groove" system prevents the panels from independantly changing elevation
thereby eliminating ridges from panel to panel, and the added "pegging" system secures the panels ensuring that gaps cannot
not develope between them and that the entire surface expands and contracts as one unit.
Since there is no plywood core as with
some other manufacturers, there is also no chance of swelling or rot should water work its way into the seams.
The dasher boards
are also of the highest quality and made of an impact resistant material.
The package is complete with 80 pairs of
high quality "Blade Runner" skates of various sizes along with display racks.
A professional grade fully automatic skate sharpening
system is also included.
The package was purchased in February of 2012 and installed for use in April of the same year. In May
of 2013, the owners were unsuccessful in negotiaing a new lease, and a decision was made to put the rink on the market and
to concentrate their efforts and resources on the Adventure Park.
Photos are provided which will show the rink inoperation both
for hockey and public skating.
