Plan an Engagement on Ice at the Legendary Ice Rink at Rockefeller Center

Make a Proposal at One of New York's Most Romantic Destinations

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- January 24, 2006 -- Set with views of the gilded statue of Prometheus at one of New York's most prized, public treasures, the legendary Ice Rink at Rockefeller Center features an Engagement on Ice package, offering an unexpected and unforgettable moment in time to propose to 'your one and only.'

The Engagement on Ice package offers front-of-the-line access ensuring that the lucky couple can head straight onto the ice for a romantic spin around the Rink. As the session ends, the other skaters will disappear, leaving the couple alone on the ice. 'Their song' will begin to play, setting the scene for the perfect proposal. Once she says 'yes,' the Rink staff can deliver a bouquet to the new fiancé before the couple takes one last lap around the Rink. To complete the experience, the two toast to their good fortune at rink-side restaurant Rock Center Café before heading to Michael C. Fina to pick up an exclusive gift bag.

The cost of the Engagement on Ice package is $150, all inclusive. Reservations are required and availability is limited. Call 212-332-7655 to schedule an Engagement on Ice, which includes:

-- Front-of-the-line access for two
-- Two skating passes
-- Skate rentals for two
-- Signature 'song' played during or after the proposal
   (music provided by proposer)
-- The option to drop off a bouquet of flowers that can be skated out and
