The Color and Glow Run could just as easily be called the Color and Glow Walk, or the Color and Glow Dance.

Top 40 hits blast from speakers on the walls at Starlite Skating Center, sending skaters bouncing to the beat as they glide across the rink. Though the music is modern, the roller rink itself is a throwback: it's made of genuine hardwood maple, like the ones that were so popular in the 1960s. Zooming on top of it is as easy as picking up a pair of rental skates—but for those who’ve never traveled on eight wheels, the centers offer skating lessons, teaching students skills from basic balancing to skating while you're in a handstand.
The centers entertain families off the rink, as well. Players can test their skills on 50 arcade games, while littler children jump and swing in the padded playgrounds. The Sharpsburg location also has a laser tag arena, where siblings and friends square off in space-age shooting matches.

Students who stick with the program can progress to join teams that foster friendly competition.
