Here are the Good Friday details you need to know:

  • Friday, April 3, 2015

Private Parties

Take a look at our calendar and you’ll notice that our rink is closed to the public nearly every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. Don’t get us wrong, we love offering public skating sessions for all of our roller skaters in Austin. However, we find that there are a lot of schools, corporations, small businesses, non-profits, and other organizations that like to book our rink for private parties. We’d love to open this option up to you and your group!


These private party opportunities also make for great fundraising skate sessions. Read up on what we have to offer as a fundraising partner with your organization, and take a look at the testimonial from Gullett Elementary. We’d love to partner with you too for your fundraising needs! Contact us for more information!

Fit and Fabulous in 2015

Spring is here! At least, according to the calendar, it is. For some that means spring cleaning, and for others provides a renewed initiative to get fit after the winter. We all know that staying healthy is an important part of life, but did you know that the Mayo Clinic suggests that people exercise for at least thirty minutes a day? While there are all sorts of options to keep you active, at Playland Skate Center we think that roller skating is one of the best ways to stay active! We’ve got a few reasons to share as to why we think roller skating is so great to get fit and and feel fabulous:Skate for fitness

  • Roller skating is great for cardio!
  • Check out how many calories you burn roller skating using this calculator
  • Easier on your joints than running
  • Great music to skate to

We have tons of opportunities this month for you to join us at Playland Skate Center in Autstin, TX. If you’re looking to SK8 4 Fitness, then join our group on Fridays. Of course you are welcome to any of our other public sessions as well.

We hope to see you out as your skate your way to getting and staying fit and feeling fabulous this year. Check out all of our opportunities to skate on our schedule page and Facebook and Twitter throughout spring and summer!

Spring Break in Austin, TX!

Kids all around Austin are anticipating the arrival of Spring Break! When school is out, Playland Skate Center is open and we’re ready to roll. Ready to roll on skates that is! If you are sticking around Austin for a staycation during break, this is a great opportunity for you to get out of the house and let those kids get rid of some of their energy.

Don’t forget that roller skating is not all that we offer at Playland Skate Center. Our awesome arcade games will be open as well as our snack bar and soft play center. This means plenty of fun and plenty of snacks!
