Gone Downhill!
Apr 2018 • Family
I remember skating here as a child and teenager myself, but it has most certainly declined!
The outside is not always kept up, nor is it well lit up at night. The inside smells old, and even with some remodeling it looks not well kept.
The type of clientele is not desirable young people for my children to be around, especially to be left alone with if we want the kids to enjoy a skate night and we go see a movie! Many of the teens look, talk and act rough...REAL ROUGH.
I did drop my children off for a birthday party. My daughter received a severe concussion! Some kids were running and she couldn't stop quick enough and got knocked backwards and hit her head. NO ONE from Skaters Paradise tended to her...other grownups there (some not even associated with the party) rushed to her. Those folks called us to come pick her up! Then I called (twice I called) to get a copy of the accident report for her pediatrician and here we are, months later and NO ONE has returned my calls.
My kids nor our church youth group will not be going back!
***IF your children go there to skate, I recommend you STAY WITH THEM for their own safety!

Horrible! Horrible! Horrible
Jun 2016
Me and a friend took our kids tonight and the staff is very young and not attentive at all! There were children cursing even some of the staff was also cursing.. we went and played a few arcade games with the kids and when we got ready to leave someone had stolen my friend's sons shoes! Crazy they were there not even 4 minutes before we were getting ready to leave we searched the entire skating rink they were no where to be found! We reported the incident to staff and they didn't seem surprised at all like it happens a little more than they like to admit and said it was probably one of the black kids that was there! I have only been to this establishment one time prior almost 18 years ago and it was very nice then now I don't what has happened but make sure someone is with you to keep a eye on your stuff cause they have thieves! Also be careful what your kids hear if you do not like profanity I suggest you not go cause as I said earlier even the staff dropped a few f bombs...

Used to be a great place but now.....not so much!
Feb 2015 • Family
I have been going to this skating rink since I was a child and it hasn't changed much. A great time for kids but as a parent.....NO. My kids LOVE going here but after our last visit I try to convince my children to go to places other than here. My number one complaint? THE MUSIC AND MESSED UP SPEAKERS. I found the owner and complained that they needed to change the music to something more like pop music because UNFORTUNATELY the last time we were there the teenage kid running the music was playing horrible RAP WITH EVERY BAD WORD UNDER THE SUN. The owner just shrugged and basically told me it's what they have........WHAT???' You have young children in your facility and you don't give a hoot about the expletive laden music you are exposing their innocent little minds?? Any respectable parent STAY FAR AWAY. IF he had kid friendly music, it's a fun outing for the children. Dirty? YES! Stinks? Yes. In a less than desirable location in Slidell? YES. Highly recommend bringing your kids anywhere but here.

Only for kid's/teens

I use to love skating, and if you take the kid's its fine (and fortunately that is what we did). Teen date, kid putting and this place does just fine.

Owner was horrible
Oct 2014 • Family
This is a horrible place to bring your kids. At night the parking lot was so dim I could not hardly see the building. I'm from Hammond and had to call for directions the man that answered (assuming the owner) was very rude. When I got there and told him I was the one calling and not from here, his reply was "I can't help that". The building stunk like stale cigarettes and the bathrooms were horrible!! No tissue and looked like they never saw a mop. I would not recommend and will not go back!!

Cool place to take the family!

I took my children to a Friday night session. We will definitely revisit! Real leather rental skates not like the cheap plastic ones in other rinks. This place seems to be newly renovated!

Run Down Skating Rink
Oct 2013 • Family
This skating rink is officially run down and needs to close down, the bathrooms looked like they haven't been cleaned since the day this place opened not to mention the smell in those bathrooms are down right horrible. The speakers in the skating rink obiouvsly are blown and need to be replaced, its kind of hard to hear and understand music if the speakers are blown. It seems like they haven't waxed or cleaned the actual rink in a very long time - the floor is dull. There are very few employees that work in this facility to assist with the needs of the consumers. The food is bland and nasty.

Kind of rough.
Jul 2013 • Family
I used to bring our children skating here a lot. However, too many fights were happening and even when I would go watch the kids skate, I would get very frustrated with the employees who were their to make it safer for everyone, because they seem to not be very attentive.

A youth place
Apr 2012 • Family
It's one of the only places for youth to go, so I give a very good rating. The only other place in town is the Teen Center. Full and rough at times but it serves its purpose well
