Like learning to use chopsticks, roller-skating takes patience, dedication, and a particularly dexterous set of toes. Show off how flexible your feet are with today's Groupon to Branch Brook Park Skating Rink in Newark. Choose between the following options:

Branch Brook Park Skating Rink soundtracks crackerjack skate moves with electrifying, kid-friendly tunes. Families, friends, or bobsled teams can band together with four-person admission and skate rentals, bonding via rink-romping high jinks and the hypnotic effects of skating in circles. From a reserved party area, roller-tykes can plan their domination of the rink while demolishing a large one-topping pizza and two pitchers of soda, aided by or ignoring a full supply of serving ware and utensils. The birthday kid gets to mount the lofty heights of the DJ booth to choose a mini playlist and legally oblige all attendees to do the Locomotion. Then, he or she gets to spin the Wheel of Fortune to win prizes in the Stuff Shop. All guests can attempt to win goodies or last-minute birthday gifts with four game tokens each in the arcade. Throughout the 2- to 2.5-hour event, an energetic, experienced party host will keep the festivities on track. Though skate rental is included, rollers are welcome to wield their own wheels, but rocket skates are strictly forbidden.
