Before roller rinks gave people a place to skate in circles, they’d sneak onto ships to race around the deck’s perimeter and run their wheels along the edges of pancakes. Skate a loop without getting sticky or salty wheels with today's deal: $12 gets you $30 worth of admission to public skate sessions at Fun Spot Skating and Party Center in Belleville, Illinois. Admission ranges from $5.50 to $7 depending on the day, and skate rental ($2-4) is not included.
A real maple skating floor makes skating at Fun Spot as smooth as butter, and just as delicious on pancakes. Computer-controlled lighting and music creates a classic roller-rink ambiance, and a video arcade and snack bar are on standby for the wheel-averse. The rink is has ample avenues of fun because it aims to fully entertain and engross every person who walks through its doors.
Fun Spot has been family-owned since it opened more than 40 years ago; its friendly staff keeps stunt skaters under control, so parental supervision is not required.
