The mystery around a rooftop rink spotted in downtown Toronto has been solved…it’s part of Molson Canadian’s 2016 #anythingforhockey campaign.
The contest is over and winning fans will compete in some pick up hockey atop the 32-story building at 120 Adelaide St. West in Toronto’s financial district next month.
Construction of the rooftop rink started at the end of November.
Here’s some of the details released by Molson Canadian.
– It’s not cheap to keep this going. The rooftop rink carries a weekly operational cost of $100,000.00
– It’s is half the size of an official NHL rink.
– Since shovelling snow off the roof isn’t a possibility, snow is melted on the roof under hot water and then drained.
– To clear the ice, a flooding machine will use hot water to flood the rink and an ice scrapper to smooth it out.
Watch it being built…in 30 seconds.
