    I have never been ice skating but I have always wanted to try

  2. I’ve never ice skated as well, but it seem like fun.

  3. The only time that I ever ice skated was at the Mall of Memphis at an event back in college. I stayed upright for nearly 30 seconds once, which was a huge accomplishment.

  4. Last time I went ice skating was at the Mall of Memphis (age 14, Summer 1990) I stayed upright the entire time I’m sure. I miss the Mall of Memphis & wish it was still open.

  5. Last week. Didn’t fall once!

  6. Stephanie Herrada says:

    The last time I went ice skating it was set up at Liberty Land. I did not fall becasuse there was a cute guy there that I went to school with so I made sure that i did not fall. I did however choke on a corn dog!
