For more than three decades, the Hudson family has fostered a fun, safe environment for exercise at Red Bird Skateland. The glossy roller rink welcomes the public during open skate hours, and hosts birthday parties as well. Bashes can be held during public skate hours, or birthday kids can opt for private celebrations, which lets partygoers skate unimpeded by strangers after feasting on cake.
Center Line Sport Horses is owned by Colette Sossaman, specializing in the art of Dressage. Colette excels in the training of non-traditional breeds used for competition dressage. In fact, Colette has won multi-National Championships and Reserve National Championships on three different breeds in four levels of Dressage.
There are bowling alleys, and there are bowling super highways. With 600 pins creating a satisfying, nearly constant thunder, Forum Bowling Lanes could be considered the latter. Since 1974 the Grand Prairie institution has welcomed strike-seeking families and competitors to its 60 lanes, and although it recently underwent a remodel, it retains its vintage feel. Classic bowling is the name of the game here, with a straightforward style that allows players to focus on the frames. And after the final throw, they can relax with a drink in Forum?s cafe and lounge or head to the pro shop to pick up essential bowling gear such as balls and air horns for distracting opponents.
Forum Roller World’s vast polished hardwood floor stretches below a similarly vast ceiling outfitted with festive lights. And between the two? A scrum of roller skaters gliding, weaving, and figure-eighting to the tune of music such as hip-hop and gospel. This large facility welcomes skaters of all levels to slip into a pair of skates and cruise the floors. On Sunday nights until 1 a.m., adults rule the roost, where they can skate at their own speed without having to dodge children or re-oil their training wheels.
