Break free from sedentary seasonal confines and whip around the rink with today's wheeled Groupon. For $5, you'll get a skate rental and skating pass in the Metrodome at Rollerblade RollerDome.
Sharing a home with the Vikings, the RollerDome hosts thousands of inline skaters hoping to socialize, exercise, and shelter from blustery winter weather in the upper and lower concourses of the Metrodome. Smooth, sleek concrete of the rink provides the perfect practice space for newbies, while seasoned skaters can whip by on the inside lane, and trendy hoverskaters can float high above their heads in the sky lane. The bi-level facility features an upstairs area geared toward speedy skaters, and a staff-patrolled downstairs space for kids and beginners.
In-line skating burns roughly 816 calories an hour for a 150-pound person, making it a more effective workout than your standard indoor treadmill romp or bench press. Consult the schedule online for a complete list of public skating hours.
For most of the year, the outer concourses of the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome fill with the aromas of hot dogs and grilled onions to feed hungry fans during Vikings and Twins games. But from November through April, the smooth concrete floors of those same concourses become the skating surface for the Rollerblade RollerDome. Skaters have taken over the Metrodome every winter for decades, including in 1993, when Jonathan Seutter set a Guinness World Record there by skating 271 miles in 24 hours. The half-mile concrete loops provide the ideal conditions for speed skaters and beginners alike. On the upper level, experienced skaters get a cardio workout with separate alleys for speed skating and leisurely coasting. On the lower level, kids and novices can take their time while skating along to music spun by onsite DJs and really hip spiders.
