A CHANGE This New Year!

We know it’s still a few weeks away but, as is true with every holiday season, the new year will be here before you know it! Yes, if you haven’t checked your calendar in a while, we are only 13 days away from 2013. CRAZY RIGHT? Where did the year go?

Hopefully some of you are already thinking about your New Year’s resolutions and how you’re going to ring in 2013, but we wanted to make sure we added a little something special just for Playland skaters!

As a special change in our normal skate schedule, Tuesday Jan 1st, there will be no adult night. Don’t worry, we’ve got something even better! Instead, we will be open from 12pm-10pm with a fantastic $6.00 speical. We’re calling it our New Year’s SUPER SESSION so Playland skaters can kick (or roll) 2013 off with a bang right here at Austin’s favorite family fun center.

For additional scheduling questions feel free to call or visit our schedule or events pages. We are constantly updating them with new times and special skate events!

Community Outreach at Playland

Here at Playland, Austin, Texas’s favorite family fun center and skate rink, we LOVE to see new and familiar faces coming in and out of our doors. And to thank all of you for your support we like to give back to the community through a variety of outreach programs including:

  • Utilizing our Featured Friday events to help donate school supplies and to the Coats for Kids program
  • Co-hosting a ton of great fundraisers with local schools – almost every Thursday night during the school year.
  • Giving to churches and girl scout groups that host fundraisers with us
  • Giving discounts to youth groups and non profit organizations here in the community
  • and more..

If you or someone you know is affiliated with a non-profit or outreach organization, let us know! We’d love to give you and the given charity a shout out, and may even be able to help out ourselves! And as always, if you are interested in utilizing the fundraising opportunities here at Playland Skate Center, we’d love to help make it happen!

Celebrate the Holidays at Playland

There are plenty of fun events and places to go during the holiday season but NO better place to kick back with friends and family than at Playland. Outside of enjoying our open skate times, Playland offers a number of great opportunities to reserve your own private  party where you and your group of friends, family, or even coworkers, can have a blast with a little help from the Playland staff!

Party packages will depend on the size of your guest list and Playland will happily accommodate to the needs of your group. Honestly, can you think of a better way to forget about work, bills, and cleaning the house before Aunt Mabel arrives than to bring out the kid in you while skate around to your favorite tunes? Sounds like a no-brainer to us, and many others, which is why we already have a ton of parties scheduled this season!

DON’T WORRY, there’s still room for you! But call today before we are all booked up!

Celebrate the holidays like never before, with Austin’s favorite skate rink, Playland Skate Center.

Family Fun in Austin, TX

One of my fondest memories growing up was the time I got to spend with my family. I probably didn’t give it as much credit back then, but now I am thankful I had the opportunity to visit so many fun, family-friendly places that my parents, my brother, and I could all enjoy. Which is why I’m so thankful that Playland offers some of the same family-friendly fun that I remember enjoying as a kid.

From the arcade, to the PlayZone, and OF COURSE, all the great skating opportunities, Playland Skate Center is your GO TO hot spot for family-friendly fun here in Austin. We pride ourselves in providing a great place for ‘kids’ of all ages. That means parents can kick back and join in on all the fun too!

Between parties, daycares, fundraising events, private lessons, and open skating, you’re never far from a good time at Playland. Visit our events page to see what’s coming up and set aside some time for good old-fashioned family fun, right here in Austin, Tx.
