Although originally an alternative to the horse and buggy, roller skating is a much more effective means of transportation when the horse wears only two skates. Partake in this equestrian sport with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get admission to afternoon skating for four people and quad-skate rentals at Cal Skate in Rohnert Park (up to a $40 value).
A mecca for family entertainment, Cal Skate’s 14,000-square-foot skating rink plays host to a wide range of parties, gatherings, and afternoons on miniature wheels. Over 200 glistening pairs of quad roller skates patiently wait to be partnered with visitors’ feet. Skaters opposed to balanced cylindrical formations may rent in-line skates for an additional fee. Open skate infuses music and games into a NASCAR-like procession for foot drivers. Wireless Internet, an arcade, and television lobby supply alternative forms of entertainment, and, like morning scuba classes in a frozen lake, a snack bar is provided for reenergizing.
There isn’t just one way to skate around the rink at Cal Skate. In the midday, open skate welcomes folks of all ages and couples and adults can spark romance or freestyle under the glowing lights during the evening. The center is also home to the Resurrection Roller Girls, who dare both adults and youths to tap into their inner warriors at age-appropriate derby-training sessions. For birthday parties, the staff can set up a party room for you and your guests, complete with snacks and free gifts, and the DJ will play your birthday song request—as long as it’s not “The Song that Never Ends.”
