Follow The Maggie Daley Park Zamboni On Twitter

DNAinfo reports that while the wait to rent skates can be long, skating is halted altogether three or four times a day so the ice can be resurfaced — a process that can take up to an hour while a Zamboni smooths out the ribbon.

To help skaters time their visits around the Zamboni's schedule, a new Twitter account, @MDPZamboni, was launched on Dec. 29 by the Chicago-based company that manages the ribbon, Westrec. The account gives the approximate times the machine will be on the ice and how long.
