Explore: Retro Skate Night!

I figured with upcoming Roller Derby it would be fun to get us in the spirit of things by having a night of skating to 80's music on April 2nd, 2014 at the Austin Roller Rink!


Every Wednesday , Austin Roller Rink has an adults only (21 + ) retro skate night playing 80s , 90s music.

If you've never done skating before it's a great workout and is typically pretty easy to get the hang of and is good for all skill levels. Not to mention several of us can give pointers along the way to help you out.


PRICE:

For $5.00 /per person you gain :

• Admission for the rink

• Quad skate rentals

Note: You are allowed to bring your own skates, but there is no discount on admission. Also there is only quad skate rental, no rollerblade rental.

There is also a concession booth (selling limited food/drinks) and a few arcade machines. I believe they only accept cash for these , so I would recommend bringing $10 - $20 . This event is also BYOB. So feel free to bring your favorite adult beverage(s).


RSVP:

By attending this event you agree to our attendance policy located HERE .

    Brian, after you left, the skating rink folks announced that they broke a record tonight with 104 people in attendance. I'd like to think explore Austin was the big push that put them over.

    This did seem fun, but I got roped into traveling, maybe next time.

    Fingers crossed that the orthopedist clears me to get back on skates by then.

    March 6, 2014

    • Lea

      Nope, back in the boot for another four-ish weeks. The orthopedist said I *could* go, but I'd have to take it easy, which I probably can't do. He also said if I put too much stress on it it will break because my bones are soft. I don't wear high top skates so I have no ankle support so we decided it's a super-bad idea. Ugh.

    I was always better at roller blading than skating, but I haven't done either since middle school. Should be fun to try again.

    OMG I love this event. I love roller skating and can't wait to do it again. I haven't been in years. I even have my own skates that I used to where in LA.

    I love skating. I'm excited to try out this rink!

      It's not as polished as the one up north, but it's BYOB. Also typically it's just us there, so everyone has all the room to skate they want.
