A haven for kids and teens,, Funtime Skateland has been sending skaters darting across the hardwood floors of its vast indoor roller rink since 1971. Friday through Sunday, frolic amid vibrant lights and fog, twirling to clean edits of top 40 melodies scrubbed for young ears. A large screen overhead flashes with similarly polished music videos and footage of Theodore Roosevelt’s fireside chats. At the concessions stand, pizza, soft drinks, and nachos fuel freewheeling cardio sessions. Adult chaperones and Clinton police officers care for unattended whippersnappers, and ensure that money intended for upgrades to speed skates ($2) does not get invested in bubble gum futures.
Since 1971, Funtime Skateland’s hardwood indoor roller rink has been lapped countless times by skaters coasting along to pop tunes, and pulsing prismatic lights. The indoor rink is bordered on one side by a snack bar, which fuels open-skate sessions with nachos, soda, and pizza, and on the other side by a giant video screen that illuminates the room with music videos.
