Last year I bought a pair of iceskates from Bax, but I hardly ever used them. What a waste! So on Saturday morning I dug them up from the depths of my inventory and tried them out on the little skating rink on ImperiuM Island. Lovely! The skates have a scripted AO in them, and skating-sounds..very nice. But I kind of missed a bit of variety in skating movement, so I went exploring a bit.
I found a more than lovely, and large, skating pond in Willow Estates. Beautiful scenery, wildlife, spots to sit next to a cosy fireplace – really nice and not too ‘christmassy’. You can get a free pair of iceskates at the landingpoint and the best thing is: you click on the sign next to the pond, and choose an animation of your choice (singles relax, singles tricks, couples etc…). It rezzes a poseball which makes you skate in a guided path, so you can sit back and watch yourself skate like a true champion! Or chat and take pics of course. When you have had enough, simply ‘stand’ and all is done! Cool!
