Change is Good!

Have you heard that the only constant thing in life is change? We have! In fact we’ve seen changes in skating styles (speed, artistic, jam, and hockey) over the years as well as changes in skates themselves (take a look at the vintage skates pictured!). We’re embracing change and installing our new skating floor this week and next. It’s been exciting to see the behind the scenes work, but we are more excited about showing you the finished product at our Wood Floor Premier!Antique Skates

WHAT: Wood Floor Premier
WHEN: Thursday, September 4, 2014
WHY: To celebrate the new floor!
WHO: Over 18 years of age
WHERE: Playland Skate Center
TIME: 7pm-10:30pm

Need To Know

If you are planning on joining us for our 18 and up Wood Floor Premier, please note that if you choose to bring your own skates they must have a toe plug or toe stop. After all, according to Southeastern Skate Supply, Inc. a new wooden floor comes only once every 25-50 years. We want to protect our investment the best we can. Thanks for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.

Did You Know?

Did you know that there are three different styles of wood floors in roller rinks? This is just a fun fact to share with you as we are undergoing our installation this week. We can’t wait for you to come out and see if we have a straight or log cabin floor, a fan floor, or an arc floor. While we know what it is, we’ll let you read a little more about the differences involved and then find out for yourself in just a few short days!

Make sure you share with us here or on Facebook and Twitter for more behind the scenes pics of our new skating floor in Austin!
