Four-wheeled feet were once reserved only for robots and Orwellian nightmares. Don some future-inspired footgear with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get four admissions, four regular skate rentals, and four meal tickets to Fantasyland Skate Center in McAllen (up to a $58.40 value). For 22 years, Fantasyland has provided a smooth surface for gliding, rolling, and cavorting via foot-bound wheels. Sashay your way around the rink with music from a live DJ, who will happily provide the soundtrack to any party, gathering, or annual town shaming with song requests and games. Meal tickets keep the belly’s bearings well maintained with a hot dog, chips, 16 oz. soda, and ice-cream cup, and the full arcade gives fingers a workout while quads take a break. Skate junkies are free to bring their own roller goods, and novice wheelers can pop on a pair of trainer strollers at no extra charge. Check the schedule for public skate times.
