Winter Paradice

Skate, Create and Celebrate

Come Enjoy Our First Annual Holiday Extravaganza!


Experience Winter Paradice, San Diego-style, at the Fleet Science Center, November 23–January 26! 


Trade in your flip-flops for lace-up skates and take a glide session on our new synthetic ice rink (you know, because it’s science). When you’re done skating, continue the fun by jumping in the ball pit or sliding down a 31-foot slide in our adult-sized playground exhibition, Pause|Play. Get crafty with ornament making in Studio X, create your own ice cream flavor in the cafe and immerse yourself in our interactive galleries.


Gather your family and friends, as you don’t want to miss out on this festive adventure. As a holiday treat, ice skating is included with your full-priced Fleet admission*!


We want to see how you celebrate! We encourage you to use the hashtag #winterparadice and tag @fleetscience when posting to social media.


Skating hours will be assigned starting at 11 a.m. The last skate hour is the final hour we’re open. Only 30 people can skate at one time. 



*Please note: Explorer Pass, ASTC members and visitors with gallery admission only, can add skating and one film showing for only $9.95.


Late Night Skate


The Fleet will be open late on select Saturdays and Sundays, beginning November 23 through December 29, with discounted pricing from 5–9 p.m., so you can celebrate with a late skate, sip cocktails rink side (available for purchase) and let your imagination run wild in our interactive exhibitions. 




Please note: While the skating rink will be closed on Friday and Saturday, December 6 and 7, during December Nights, we will transform Winter Paradice into a cocktail lounge with games and activities for 21+ attendees.
