Owner is a real tool. Went there for a birthday party. Owner kept hanging around the bathroom when someone would go in. He is a strange little guy.

Wow, how do you respond to such an allegation and personal attack?! Well first off, we, my wife and I, don’t have time to “hang” around the bathroom and still be able to run our business. We have more important things to take care of. If we were “hanging” around the bathroom, however, then that would indicate that we have... More

Not bad when going during a discounted rate, not worth it at their regular prices. Their food is inexpensive, which is a bonus. Bring your own skates, rentals add up with a big family.

We love Skateland! My kids have fun, it is clean and the music is good. There are extra things like homeschool skate days and roller hockey. The food is as good as food is at roller skating places. Plus they have fun coffee for the adults!

Thank you for your kind review. We hope you have been back to see us. We use the tightened wheels to help the little one get the idea that the skate as to have all four wheels take the floor at the same time. If they try to "walk" by placing the heel down first as you do when you... More

PROS: a good alternative to places like Chucky Cheese or Volcano Falls where the children are involved in engaging physical activity. Large parking lot, clean facilities, reasonable rates. CONS: none.

I visited this facility personally. Although the rink appears overall clean, below I have presented some observations and have offered some possible suggestions for improvement which are intended to be constructive. The interior could be updated a bit to be brought current, as the overall theme is somewhat outdated. A fresh paint job with current colors would be attractive. Although... More

We appreciate your suggestions. We are not sure when you visited but one of us (owners) are present at almost every session or private party with the exception of Saturday evenings. Every year we invest money into the upkeep of our facility. Some years we can do more than others, depending on the cash flow. Just this past December we... More
