More Than Just Roller Skating – We’ve Got an Indoor Playground!

When you think of Playland Skate Center in Austin, TX the first thing that probably comes to mind is our awesome roller skating rink – which is great! We have so much fun throwing all of our featured friday parties and encouraging everyone to come skate at Sk8 4 Fit to roller skate and get fit, but did you know we have more than just roller skating? Its true! Playland Skate Center has fun for the whole family, even the little ones! Our Playscape – an indoor playground – is the perfect place for your kids to come play while you enjoy some time on the rink! Indoor Playground Img

The Playscape at Playland Skate Center is a GIANT two story indoor playground. It is just for your younger kids – under 52″ to be exact – to come and romp around while the older members of the family enjoy other aspects of our family fun center. The indoor playground has two slides so brother and sister can race each other to the bottom. The trampoline can turn any frown upside down, because no one will be left out of the fun! We don’t miss any of the fun of regular outdoor playgrounds either because we’ve even got a swing for kids to swing along to the music!

You don’t even have to worry about your kids while they are in the Playscape either. You get to sit back, and relax for a few minutes while our Playland employees monitor your children while they climb up and down the ladders and walkways and wear themselves out for a good afternoon nap. We have benches nearby so you can sit and watch you kids play, if you want to be on hand ‘just in case.’

This summer, don’t let the heat keep you locked in the house. When temperatures rise, we’ve always got some cool new fun at Playland Skate Center. Bring the whole family to enjoy some time on our skating ring, playing on the Playzone – our indoor playground, or trying their hand at our arcade winning tickets for prize redemption.
