    Largest rinks in the world?

    I was reading about the ice rink on the campus of the University of Illinois (known as the "Big Pond") being an incredible 195 ft x 115 ft. Which makes it shorter than standard sized rinks, but much wider than any other rink I'm aware of.

    Is this the widest rink in the world? How many rinks are larger than the standard international sized rink?

    I'm sure they're probably an extreme rarity these days which is why I find it so interesting. The "Big Pond" was built in 1931 for example.

    The biggest in the world by a long shot is in Ottawa. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rideau_Canal#Skateway

    Sorry, should have been more specific! I meant permanent hockey rinks. Obviously any kind of ice rink could include hundreds of bandy rinks as well, but I was specifically looking for hockey rinks that are larger than normal.
