It felt like spring across Nebraska Friday.

The last time Lincoln saw temperatures above 60 was December 2nd, when the high was 65.

Many packed into the new Railyard Ice Rink on the warm Friday.

"I'm still a little cold but I've been use to below 20 the last couple of days so it's awesome.  I'm glad we picked this day to come out and skate," says Rachel Henry of Auburn.

For Trevor Hain and his six-year-old son this wasn't their first time at the new rink.

Hain says they came when it was just 12 degrees outside.

"You can't beat the weather at all.  Skate on some good ice, 50 degree weather, it's unbelievable," says Hain.

Naomi Reed brought her kids out two days in a row.

"Our kids said can we please come again today and we said sure," says Reed.

The rink stays frozen through a cooling system, creating fun, snow or shine.

Some say they'd enjoy either situation.

"I like it but I'd like to see some snow, I'd like to take him sledding," says Hain.
