Adrenaline rush aside, chainsaw ice skating is a very dangerous thing to do. Many people have been injured while practicing this perilous activity which can easily escalate to a very painful death.

A chainsaw ice skating event is one of those activities that should never be witnessed by the faint-hearted.
