Golden Skate's 2,500 sq. ft., state-of-the-art laser-tag arena shows a glimpse of the future. Players can don battle vests and battle against each other with beams of light, as black lights illuminate teams of players as they scour obstacles in search of adversaries. Alternatively, roller skaters glide around the rink and into a bygone era filled with life's simpler pleasures. But despite the name, not everything here is awash in the golden hue of nostalgia. Modern pop music blasts through the rink's speakers, helping skaters maintain their rhythm as they brazenly coast through traffic lights.
