Summer Bucket List

For over forty years, Playland has seen thousands and thousands of families enter our doors. We can not agree enough with the saying that, Time spent with family is worth every second.” We’ve simply noticed this as observers over the years. More and more families seem to be making commitments to spend quality time with each other for various reasons. A quick look at Pinterest will allow you to find family summer bucket lists, screen free activity lists, or a list of fun and active ideas to get you moving as a family. Roller skating at Playland is a great fit for all!Bucket List

This summer, every Thursday night in June and July, we will be offering our Family SK8 Night! Admission and skate rental is just $5 per person for two and a half hours of quality family time roller skating. If skating isn’t on your summer “must” list yet, then Family SK8 Night at Playland is a great excuse to add it! Make sure you put it on the calendar.

If you do have that bucket list, then maybe Family SK8 Night can help you mark off more than one thing. Perhaps roller skating is a perfect Throw Back Thursday (#TBT) activity because mom and dad grew up skating. Or, maybe you can theme your family skate night; do we hear eighties night anyone?

Regardless of your reason for coming out to Family SK8 Night, we are just happy to help families make memories. Make sure you take some #selfies and family fun pics while you are out. Don’t forget to share them with us on our social networks. After all, making memories is what really counts!

Memorial Day Skate

On the last Monday of May, young and old across our nation with look back and remember those that have passed while serving our country in the military. Some will observe the day by attending or participating in a parade, others may visit a cemetery or gravesite, and still others may spend time with family at a backyard barbeque. No matter how you choose to observe Memorial Day on the last Monday of May, we wanted to let you know that Playland Skate Center will be open for the day as well. We are normally closed for private parties on Mondays, but we felt it was appropriate to recognize this somber day by opening for a Memorial Day Skate.Memorial Day Skate
