New Roc City

A 1.2 million square-foot retail and entertainment center in downtown New Rochelle, offers fun and excitement for the entire family. New Roc City is the home of the Tower Space Shot Ride, the only one in the Northeast! It's also the home of Westchester County's only IMAX Theater, and Westchester's largest Megaplex with 18 movie theaters. And, if that's not enough, The Fun House offers all the entertainment needed to keep the whole family busy day and night. New Roc n' Bowl is glow in the dark bowling complete with a snack bar.

New Roc City also features an ice skating rink called The Central Park Skating Pond. The rink has a sculptured ice surface, is complete with iron rails, park benches, lamp posts and a city feel. The NHL-size skating arena, with its 50-foot ceiling and energizing murals, features hockey games, figure skating and gala special events and shows.

For those who want to dine, adjoining New Roc City are Applebee's Neighborhood Grill and Bar or Zanaro's, a casual fine Italian restaurant, which offers food perfect for the entire family, or even a romantic night out.
