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 $6, you get admission, skate rental, and $5 worth of snacks and drinks at Olympia Family Fun Center (a $13 value).
With more than 25 years in the family entertainment industry, Olympia Family Fun Center skates into the hearts of patrons young and old with its mammoth rink, grooving tunes, and tasty snacks that stimulate socializing and smiling. Lace up with free roller-skate rentals and leap onto the hardwood floor to bust out dance-inspired moves that blow minds and burn calories, or take your first tender-footed steps toward total roller-rink prowess.
Skating sessions are scored by a selection of energetic, recognizable songs and colorfully lit with funky purple hues that evoke ‘70s-era discos and aristocratically inclined Christmas trees. After working up an appetite, make a wheeled beeline to the snack bar to refuel with a chicken strip basket ($4.50), rehydrate with a 12-ounce fountain drink ($1.50), or play frisbee with a fried funnel cake ($4). Olympia's family-friendly atmosphere and sizable seating areas make it an ideal location to celebrate a birthday or other special event.
Olympia Family Fun Center
For more than two decades, Olympia Family Fun Center has helped guests young and old get their groove on with a wooden roller-skating rink, snack bar, and O-zone—an on-site dance club for teenagers. The rink's fluorescent lights and energetic, upbeat tunes keep skaters in motion as they loop around the rink, passing slower skaters and high-fiving onlookers who have really great hair.
