Southwest Heart Lands on the Roller Rink


As you know, our Southwest Heart doesn’t end when you leave the airport. It runs deep through the communities we serve. In Denver, we’re growing our reach and bringing our fun-luving spirit and Heart straight into the Heart of Downtown! With summer finally here, we are expanding our partnership with the Downtown Denver Partnership as it converts the famous Downtown Denver ice rink into City Skate, Denver’s first-ever public roller rink in downtown.


As the presenting sponsor of City Skate, we’re continuing to connect to Denver’s passion of celebrating the seasons with Denverites – whether on ice skates or, in this case, roller skates! You can lace up your skates and experience Mile High Heart with this fun and family-friendly activity. Skating is free and skate rentals are $7 for kids under 12 and $9 for those 13 and older. City Skate is open Sundays through Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. - 8:00 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. - 10:00 p.m. You can hit the rink through Oct. 2, 2022.


If skating isn’t your thing, Downtown Denver Partnership has you covered. You can enjoy the Skyline Beer Garden and Putt-Putt Course, also in Skyline Park, making it the perfect place to relax and enjoy the summer vibes. Check out all the fun by visiting


Love Hits the Rink

As part of City Skate’s opening events this week, we took a few minutes to showcase our famous Southwest Airlines Hospitality to two of our Customers who have a special connection to our brand. This past winter, Coulter skated onto the ice with his girlfriend, Alexis, but left hand in hand with a fiancée. Coulter and Alexis are longtime Southwest Customers, and Alexis frequently joined Coulter on his trips using his Companion Pass.

Now that things have warmed up, we’re helping them get ready for their nuptials with a fun date night in the city. They’ll be treated to dinner at Rioja, and we’re providing tickets to an upcoming show at Red Rock Amphitheater. We’re also helping them with their honeymoon by providing two round trip tickets so they can relax after their big day this fall.


Alexis and Coulter love flying Southwest to visit family and friends around the country, but when they’re home in Denver they can be found hiking, skiing, or enjoying Sloan’s Lake, Washington Park, and Platt Park.


We’re thrilled to celebrate special moments like this whether on a plane, at the airport, or in the Heart of the communities we serve.


So whether you live in the Denver area, or traveling through the Mile High City, we look forward to seeing you at the rink this summer!
