Bostonians are used to the particularly cold weather that settles in the city around Christmastime, so it’s no surprise that it doesn’t stop them from having some fun.
Fenway Park, Major League Baseball’s oldest ballpark, will once again be converted into a winter wonderland for Citi Frozen Fenway 2014. In addition to an NHL-regulation ice surface across the infield, center field will feature a 20-foot-high sledding ramp for the first time in the ballpark’s 101-year history.
The 75-foot-long “Monster Sled” will provide a one-of-a-kind thrill ride on the frozen field at Fenway Park. Five lanes will begin by the Green Monster in left-center field and end by the bullpens in right. Scheduled to be ready for use from Dec. 28 to Jan. 13, the Monster Sled will be available to private group rentals of up to 100 people.
Anybody looking to combine their passions for the Red Sox, outdoor hockey and sledding can contact the Red Sox at 617-226-6791 or firstname.lastname@example.org to book a slot on the Monster Sled.
