Like learning to use chopsticks, roller-skating takes patience, dedication, and a particularly dexterous set of toes. Show off how flexible your feet are with today's Groupon to Rollerland Skate Center in Fort Collins. Choose between the following options:
- For $6, you get one Value Pass (a $9 value), including admission, skate rental, playground admission, and two runs through the laser maze, as well as a hot dog (a 1.75 value) and a drink (a $1 value; an $11.75 total value).

Rollerland sends four-wheeling families and friends whirling across 12,500 square feet of slick skating floor. Once laced into rented skates, fast-rollers can zip around the well-maintained track, practicing for the roller derby or training for a future career as a zamboni. After indulging in practically friction-free jaunts, roller skaters can abandon wheeled entertainment with two speedy, strategic zips through the laser maze. In a darkened room, thrill-seekers maneuver as quickly as they can through an ever-changing field of lasers without bumping into the beams as they pretend they're escaping an alien spider's web or caught amid the least threatening light-saber battle in science-fiction history. Then, kids can romp through a three-story playground, searching for imagined treasure or misplaced little brothers. Individuals can fuel the indoor fun with a hot dog and soda, and families of four wash down a large pizza with a pitcher full of soda.
RollerLand Skate Center
It's quite possible that many of the parents who bring their kids to RollerLand Skate Center spent their own childhoods at the rink. The Trevena family has run RollerLand for more than 30 years, long before America elected its first roller-skating president. In that time, the entertainment center has hosted countless parties, charity fundraisers, and regular skate sessions.
Today, RollerLand carries its past into the present. DJs play Top 40 hits as skaters roll across the 12,000 sq. ft. skating floor during open skates or Teen Nights on Fridays. Away from the rink, guests can find staple amenities, such as a concession stand that serves nachos and corndogs, arcade games that spew out redemption tickets, and colorful tubes that snake throughout a three-story play structure. One thing stands out, however¬—a large vault door that looks like something out of a heist movie. Inside waits the Laser Maze, an ever-changing game that challenges its participants to stretch and bend around bright green beams of light.
