Lots of incorrect info there. They usually play arenas that have ice already. They do need "different" ice, but generally just lay another layer on top of the hockey ice, paint it white, and then put another layer over that to achieve the necessary thickness, softness, and look. When the show is over the building crew dry scrapes with the zamboni back down to the original thickness.

I'm not saying no ice show ever uses a mobile ice plant, but it isn't the standard procedure for most of them.
