We’ve got big news to share! Playland Skate Center is getting a brand new wooden skate floor! Yes, you heard correct! This really is happening, and it is happening this month! We’ve been in business since 1973, and our rink has been the home to many happy memories over the years in Austin, including a proposal and engagement! We are excited to offer our skaters the ability to make memories on a wooden skate floor. According to Southeastern Skate Supply, the floor of a skating rink is the centerpiece, and a wood floor provides the best skating surface. For these many reasons, we will be closing temporarily at the end of August for this major floor upgrade to take place.
August 25th-Temporary Closure
Playland Skate Center will be open as usual until August 25th. We will close temporarily in order to install our wooden skating floor. There is a lot of work to be done with this installation, and it simply is not possible to remain open for skating while the floor is being installed. We realize that this is a setback, but we know that you’ll be more than thrilled with our new and improved floor.
September 4th-Wood Floor Premiere
If you enjoy coming out for our Adults Only skate, then you are in luck. Our Wood Floor Premiere will take place for those over the age of 18 on Thursday, September 4th. Be among the first to try out our new skating floor on Thursday, September 4th from 7:00-10:30pm!
September 5th-Reopen to the Public
On Friday, September 5th, we will reopen at 3:00pm. We can’t wait to unveil our new skating surface and watch our skaters have a blast with this major facelift. Come on out and celebrate our new floor with us when we reopen.
Don’t forget that our normal summer hours are in effect until our closure on Monday, August 25th. We’ve got plenty of opportunities for you to join us during your favorite skating sessions until our temporarly closure. Our short term set back will result in a longterm amazing skating surface!
