People Roller Skating

1. Skating at Rollhaven Skating Center

Rollhaven offers a variety of activities including a Glo Party. Children are given a Flashing LED cup, glo necklace & glo stick to keep. They also provide excellent pizza and drink. The children just love it. Saturday mornings is Kids morning. From 10:30 a.m.-12:30 a.m. For ages 10 & under Only with Parents. Admission is $5 and it does include skate/blade rental.

Wednesday April 13 10 a.m-12 noon is for children 6 years old & under with parents. Admission is $5.00 and includes skate/blade Rental and Bounce House. Children seem to love the Bounce house just as much as the skating. Skating parents admission is only $4. Infants in strollers are free. I have even seen the babies in strollers on the skating floor. So for those parents that do not skate, you can still push your infant in the stroller on the floor.
