What You'll Get
With the rising popularity of cosmetic surgery, it's only a matter of time before feet are deemed passé and humans opt for elective wheel-pedestal procedures. Glide toward the future with today's Groupon: for $4, you get admission, skate or blade rental, and a 16-ounce fountain soda (up to a $12 value) at Roller King in Roseville.
Since 1977, Roller King has provided children and adults with a healthy helmed escape from the boredom of walking. Follow the fragrance of commercial shoe deodorizer as you make your way to the rental counter for your choice of skates or blades, and stow stationary shoes in the wall of rentable lockers. Once befitted with freewheeling scooter boots, stretch out your swagger before hitting the gleaming hardwood arena for an aerobic, calorie-burning boogey 'round the rink. Like jogging, roller skating has been shown to reduce body fat, strengthen leg muscles, increase cardiovascular fitness, and make participants more generally attractive to bionic humans. After hearts are sent palpitating and brows are engulfed in sweat, easy riders can cool down at the snack bar with a complimentary 16-ounce fountain drink while gazing at photographs of skating royalty on the Roller King Hall of Fame wall. Check out the skating schedule for a list of convenient public skating sessions.
Locker rental ($0.50) not included.

- Roller King is a well maintained facility in a fairly decent neighborhood. The rink floor is very nice as I have found very few bad spots and it is relatively forgiving of falls. – Matthew P.

About Roller King
Roller King’s family-owned facility has given the community a shiny wooden surface to roll around on since 1977. The rink—which has undergone several upgrades and withstood three Visigoth raids since its construction—hosts training sessions that teach youngsters how to skate on Saturday morning and Tuesday afternoon and also serves as home turf for the Roseville speed skating team and the Roseville artistic skate club. In addition to the rink, the building also houses a snack bar that slings pizza, hot dogs, and soda, and an arcade to entertain guests who accidentally packed a pair of ice skates.
