For more than 50 years, wheels have rolled across the hardwood rink at the original Rollerama on 34th Street. People who learned how to skate there as children—or shared a first kiss at the rink's edge—can now bring their own children to make new memories. The sport itself seems as popular as ever, given the crowds that routinely show up to glide around on rented skates and leisurely practice their triple axels. Both of Rollerama's current locations offer plenty of open skate times, along with classic food options such as pizza and hot dogs.

At Metro BMX's weekly bicycle-motocross practice sessions, seasoned BMX vets and neophytes alike hone their racing chops on a well-maintained dirt motocross track. Racers bring their own BMX bikes (without pegs) to the course for two hours of open ride practice, during which BMX'ers can train for future races, fine-tune their skills, and conquer one of the newest Olympic sports. Riders as young as 3 (with a parental waiver) and as old as 60 frequent Metro BMX, allowing for high-octane family bonding and cross-generational understanding without awkward rides through the park on a bicycle built for nine. Metro BMX encourages riders to bring along their own helmets, though loaner helmets are available at the track.
