MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Potawatomi Bingo Casino has installed an ice skating rink that doesn't use ice.

The rink is actually constructed of synthetic ice -- a recyclable polymer requiring no refrigeration or electricity -- and you don't have to worry about wearing a coat!

"Perfect room temperature, absolutely. It's actually a recycled plastic they put a glide enhancement on and it kinda activates -- makes it feel like it's the water on ice and it's a little bit slower but it works inside, outside," Kaelyn Cervero said.

The rink is up for a couple parties -- one Monday night, and one New Year's Eve for Potawatomi's best customers.

Fog and falling snow are also part of the events.
