Unlike most monster-truck-inspired Matchbox cars, roller skates can easily support a young girl’s body weight and her love for hot-pink wheels. Roll radiantly with today's Groupon: for $13, you get two admissions with skate rentals, 20 game tokens, and a $5 snack voucher at Skate Zone in Olathe (a $28.13 total value including tax).
Skate Zone cultivates a safe, kids-only atmosphere amped up by black lights and thumping tunes. Children age 3–12 and their parents can strap on a set of neon wheelie boots and glide around a rink outfitted with tiles designed to absorb clumsy cruisers’ falls and any sweat beads that descend from the palms of partnered skaters. All guests receive a wristband, which grants them all-day, come-and-go access to the rink. Pre- or post-skate, skaters can dispense their tokens into classic and modern arcade games, or lay their $5 snack voucher on the counter in exchange for chips, cookies, fruit juices, or eternal fame.
Kids and parents zoom around the red-walled rink of Skate Zone, which provides a fun, safe atmosphere where children aged 3–12 can learn to skate. The facility's training walkers and specially designed tile floors help little ones to gain their skate-legs and minimize the pain of tumbles without the superhero-angering effects of donning an inflatable suit. Groupon customers will also receive 10% off skating lessons for toddlers and beginners. Adjacent to the rink lies a game room stuffed with token-operated amusements such as video games, dance machines, and alley bowlers. The fun center also helps kids to celebrate the day of their wrapping-paper windfalls with birthday packages, including skating-rink games and activities.
