The Polar Opposite of Fyre is Ice: Red Bull Crashed Ice at Fenway

The polar opposite of fyre has to be ice. There are no beaches to lounge on here but there is the thrill of the chase. Red Bull Crashed Ice is surreal yet 100% real and sure to be exhilarating.

Red Bull’s Northeast sports crew came to Fenway with a vision, a design AND a plan. When Red Bull approached the folks at Fenway their response was “Why not?”. Now many months later, you get to witness the race in Fenway Park (sorry St Paul) this weekend, if you have tickets.

Red Bull Crashes Ice’s construction team removed individual seats one at a time until 250 seats made way for a giant structure to be erected and a course to be created that begins eye to eye with the neon New Balance screen and ends at home plate.

Ice cross athletes from around the world will gather at Fenway and race to the finish. The 2,000 foot ice track designed with chicanes, jumps and rollers will weave across the entire Fenway field and finish at home plate. The course pays homage to our iconic ballpark and viewers will have a distinct perspective from which to take in the intense action on the race course.

“Ice Cross Downhill is one of the fastest and most exciting winter sports and we are excited to be hosting it at Fenway Park,” said Mark Lev, Managing Director of Fenway Sports Management.

“We want to thank Mayor Walsh and the City of Boston for supporting our ongoing efforts to present Fenway Park as a year-round entertainment destination and also express our gratitude to Red Bull for selecting Fenway Park to host the US stop of Red Bull Crashed Ice.”

Tickets can be purchased here. Both single day tickets and two day passes are available.
