The Ice Factory at American Tobacco Entrepreneurs turning double axles, rival companies besting each other’s Besti squats and thousands enjoying icy fun are just some of the possibilities at American Tobacco’s newest can’t-miss attraction: The Ice Factory.

American Tobacco and the Carolina Hurricanes will launch the seasonal ice skating rink on Nov. 15 by transforming the historic campus’ new basketball arena The Cage. Dates, hours and other information below.

“The Canes know the importance of a good teammate and we are happy to partner with American Tobacco to bring the Ice Factory to the center of Durham’s holiday celebration,” says Doug Warf, vice president of marketing, Carolina Hurricanes.  

The new ice rink complements American Tobacco’s already popular holiday celebration including the Triangle Christmas Tree Challenge, Trosa Tree Lot, holiday train rides through Diamond View Park and American Tobacco’s annual Tower Lighting sponsored by University Ford & Kia.

“Each holiday season, our goal is to welcome as many people as possible to American Tobacco,” says Michael Goodmon, vice president of real estate, Capitol Broadcasting Company. “This year we’re expecting tens of thousands of guests to come to the campus for ice skating, singing, dancing, celebrating, community, philanthropy, theater and so much more as we kick off the campus’ 10th anniversary celebration in 2014.”
