She Said, “YES!”

Many people in the Austin, TX community have fond memories of Playland Skate Center. Whether we were the place where they first learned to skate, bought their first pair of roller skates, or had an unforgettable birthday party here, we are thankful that we are forever in your memory. For one special couple, we know we will never be forgotten. We helped these passionate roller skaters close one chapter of their lives and begin another with each other. We were just as happy as he was when she said, “Yes!” Who knows, they might even have a roller skate wedding right here at Playland!

Winter Break Skating Sessions

Winter break is just about here! How do you plan to spend all of that time off?

If getting out and having fun is your answer, we have just the place for you to go. Join us at Playland Skate Center during Winter Break for our extended holiday hours!
