So much fun! Nostalgic all the way! My kids tried for the first time skating last night there! They were smiles the whole time, with all the bumps and bruises! They said it was their best night at the beach and best activity!! Super affordable!...More

The skating rink is on the second floor of the post office. We had a great time. The place is historic but the skates are new. Glad we stopped in. Note that they are open from 7Pm-10pm. I guess after the post office closes. LOL

I have never encountered a more rude, unappreciative, angry, bitter owner of a business that depends on paying happy customers. The place is a steaming hot, unsafe, no fun. I hope this review paints a clear enough picture of what you and your family should...More

The rink is just as it was built in the 1960s. It's lots of fun. Well managed by the person who built it in the 1960s. Very reasonable prices. Music is from 45s played on a record player.

3 kids and 3 adults enjoyed this fun evening activity. Yes, it is hot in there, but it is worth it to do something a little different that everyone of all ages can enjoy. The cost is low and the level of fun is high....More

Was invited to a friend's birthday party, upon entry this place was sweltering and no one seemed concerned about it. The fans just blew hot air the entire time. Floors were worn out, sparse bench seating and the sound system was terrible. Forget about a...More

You can rent roller skates from Doris - who has run the Topsail Beach Post Office - and the skating rink above, since the early 70's. Nothing has changed. Doris is there every night, dropping 45 rpm vinyls on her portable player. Heck, most nights...More
