What You'll Get
With its combination of friction-free motion and wholesome fun, roller-skating quickly replaced ditch-digging and dancing frenetically to "Shipoopi" as America's favorite first-date activity. Rediscover the appeal of the wheels with today's Groupon: for $10, you get two tickets to see the Des Moines Derby Dames on Saturday, July 16, at 7 p.m. at the 7 Flags Event Center (a $20 value).
The Des Moines Derby Dames wrap up a raucous season in their final bout against the Kansas City Roller Warriors Plan B team, using high-speed skatework and tenacious elbows to go for all the marbles. A wrecking crew of femme-fatale equilibrium, the D3 jams, blocks, pivots, and steamrolls its way around the egg-shaped circuit as it attempts to ride Kansas City out of town on a lacquered rail. To celebrate the season’s last joust, a free tailgating soiree kicks off at 5 p.m., featuring refreshments, an inflatable bouncy house for gravity-hating tykes, and the sonic cheerleading of the Isiserettes drill and drum corps to stir up prebattle skate lust.
With a mission to represent athletics, integrity, and sportsmanship, the Des Moines Derby Dames invite roller-derby fans of all ages to renew their passion for the sport Thomas Edison accidentally invented. Children under 10 are invited to watch this collision chorus for free.
