A new MB Park event hotline, 847-430-4338, providing MB Financial Park at Rosemont event updates, schedules and key information was launched last week for residents and visitors to the entertainment district. Updated daily, the hotline will operate throughout the year.
According to village officials, the hotline provides MB Park special event details as well as any closing information, such as if the Polar Peak tubing hill or ice skating rink were to close early as it did Feb. 1 due to the snowstorm.
“Since the Park opened in 2012 we’ve been fielding about 200 phone calls a day asking about park activities, costs and schedules,” MB Financial Park at Rosemont Marketing Director Sarah Clemmensen told the Journal & Topics. “The hotline will help. All the information will be updated daily.”
Opened in 2012, MB Financial Park at Rosemont is a 200,000 sq. ft. entertainment and dining complex with 12 venues offering international cuisine, live music, comedy, a movie theatre, bowling and more. It is also the site of Frozemont which features the four-story Polar Peak open now through March and a climate controlled National Hockey League-sized ice rink for winter skating.
During the warmer months the park features outdoor concerts, fireworks, group exercise programs and more.
