In 1948, Lester and Velma king took 10,000 square feet of property in Elk Grove and turned it into a place where friction has no control and people can coast in circles for hours on end. Today, the King family still runs the King's Skate Country roller rink. Here, visitors strap on classic roller skates or inline skates and coast across the floor, only stopping for a bite to eat or a soda at the snack bar. In addition to open skate sessions, the rink hosts birthday parties and events, including after-school sessions where kids can skate in ovals to fulfill a geometry requirement.
