With a rink defined by bright, citrus-colored walls and carnival-inspired artwork, Temple Hills Skating Palace isn?t shy about showing off its many forms of onsite amusement. The center?s main attraction is the glossy skating-rink floor, where guests can sharpen their skills during public skate or spend time with peers in specialized skating sessions for teens or adults. Most nights, the resident DJs soundtrack the skating experience with hip-hop and R & B jams, though they?ve also been know to spin gospel, top 40, and classic oldies tracks for special occasions?including the time that Billy finally asked Suzie to share a couples skate even though she was way out of his league as a fourth-grade honor student who also skipped kindergarten.
Temple Hills Skating Palace also offers more than just skating. Outside the bounds of the rink, the onsite arcade lights up the space with driving-simulation games, classic joystick units, and free-throw-inspired Pop-A-Shot machines. The more guests play, the more tickets and prizes they can earn; the more prizes that they win, the more likely they are to celebrate with a quick bite at the snack bar or a quick phone call to the friends who doubted their Whac-A-Mole prowess.
