Back to school means more fun at Playland

Back to school in Austin, TexasSummer’s in full swing here in Austin, Texas, but eventually the kiddos will be heading back to school and just because school is in session doesn’t mean the fun at Playland Skate Center stops.

Did you know the American Heart Association recognizes roller skating as a top aerobic exercise. It’s easy on joints and even better for you than running! So why not bring the kids down to Playland Skate Center for some clean, safe and beneficial fun?

Our private parties are great for after-school programs and field trips. You can rent out the entire skating rink for $499 for 2 hours up to 75 kids and $4.00 for each additional person over 75. That comes with unlimited use of the playscape, skate mates and roller skates. Roller blades can be rented for $3 and groups are permitted to bring their own food and drink. You can’t beat that!

Along with school also comes fundraisers and Playland Skate Center is a great place to hold your next fundraiser.

Fundraisers at Playland are a breeze because there’s no handling money, no product, no selling, no unused inventory, and you never lose money! Just invite your classmates, friends, parents, brothers, sisters, neighbors, congregation, or students, and your organization receives a percentage of the total admission sales.

During the fundraiser, we’ll provide the following:

Roller skates

Full service snack bar
