    The ice skating experience features a one-of-a-kind skating environment with 17,000-square feet of ice and three distinct programming areas, the Whitewater Center posted on Facebook.

    "Lights" will be a half-mile walking trail in the woods that leads visitors through a series of immersive light installations featuring honeycombs, vines, crystals, and more.

    The works are site-specific to the Whitewater Center and are created by Charlotte artist Meredith Connelly.

    Both experiences will be available with an Annual Pass, Day Pass, or Single Activity Pass.
