Interskate 91 South
A former radio producer, a high school class president, an aspiring chemistry teacher, and a college freshman: together, they sound like the characters in a long bar joke. But at Interskate 91 South, they all contribute as DJs responsible for the classic and current Top 40 tunes that set the upbeat tone for open skate sessions. The rink also hosts public and private skating lessons on weekends and home bouts for the Pair O’ Dice City Rollers.
Though the rink is a main attraction, fun at the 25,000-square foot facility isn’t limited to skating. In an alternate universe just down the corridor, a laser tag arena imagines the 22nd century as a black-lit world awash in smoke and pulsating music where citizens dodge incoming lasers. Meanwhile, at the 40-foot long and 22-foot tall playground, kids race down pairs of slides, explore a cave-themed area, and take rides on a magic carpet, an upgrade from the musty shag carpet in their basement. While their young ones play, parents can surf the Internet on complementary Wi-Fi from anywhere inside the center.
