Grover ice skating rink reopens after ceiling collapse
OMAHA, Nebraska (Nebraska) — The Grover Ice Rink reopened Saturday after a ceiling collapse forced skaters off the ice earlier this week.
On Monday, a pipe connected to the ice rink’s irrigation system burst, spilling hundreds of gallons of water onto the ice.
Staff noticed the leak immediately and no one was on the ice when it collapsed.
After a few days of pipe and ceiling repairs, the ice is open again for skating and hockey.
“I never had any doubts that our team would fix it in a hurry, but it’s certainly nice that it’s done and I look forward to getting back to normal,” said Grover Ice general manager Even Shinasi.
All classes and programs at the rink have returned to normal. The staff says that the ice is slightly discolored due to fallen water and debris, but it is perfectly safe to ride on it.
