Opened during the 1950s, Skate America has sent multiple generations of Grove City residents and visitors whirring across its spacious skating floor. Today, the facility accompanies trips around the rink with laser-light shows, a 10-foot video screen, and DJs who spin family-favorable jams, such as Top 40 hits and auto-tuned remixes of the alphabet. The snack bar—better known as Pizza Town Café—fills free hands with fresh eats, and in the game room, high scores turn into piles of tickets that can be traded in for prizes or used as makeshift stunt cushions beneath bunk beds. In addition to public sessions, Skate America also plays host to birthday parties and group functions, as well as year-round lessons for amateur wheelers.
