Celebrate National Roller Skating Month!

National Roller Skating MonthOctober means pumpkins, Halloween parties, and lots of candy but what else does it mean? National Roller Skating Month! Join Playland Skate Center in celebrating this month that honors safe, family oriented fun and fitness!

National Roller Skating Month was established in 1983 by President Ronald Regan. He declared this month to remind families of the benefits of roller skating including a safe place to have fun with your family while getting fit, too!

When everyone is so plugged in all of the time  – either to a phone, tablet, computer, or TV – escaping it all and enjoying quality time with your family and friends is essential. Roller skating is a way to bring everyone together for an evening of exciting games, fitness, and learning a new sport and encouraging everyone to disconnect with technology, and connect with each other. Nothing brings people together like learning something new.

October is a great time for roller skating as we are sure many of you are tired of the hot, Austin, TX weather. When the temperatures won’t seem to come down out of the 80s,we are keeping it cool here in Playland Skate Center. Here are great ideas to get you and your family involved in roller skating:

  • Bring a friend with you who has never seen you skate and rent them a pair of roller skates and help them learn. Everyone loves learning something new and skating is easy!
  • Bring the family to take a break from the stress of school and work and watch each other enjoy themselves out on the rink.
  • Join us for our Halloween parties at the end of this month. We’ve got one for each age group!

Playland Skate Center hopes that you take part of our favorite month of the year – National Roller Skating Month! Check out our schedule to stay up to day on the days and nights that we are open this month.
