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: for $15, you get two admissions, two skate rentals, and two $3 credits for refreshments and more (a $30 value) at Sportsworld. This Groupon also comes with a total of four free admissions for any Retro Night Thursday or other extra session, although rentals are not included for these future admissions.
At Sportsworld, speedy circumgyrators soar across the spacious floor with inline or classic roller skates cladding their frenetic feet. While retro and disco hits waft out of the speakers and neon strobe lights bedazzle bodies, skater newbies and savants alike can roam the rink, holding hands or choreographing postmodern routines to famous naval battles. Those weary of propulsion, meanwhile, can store their skates in the locker facilities ($3, plus a refundable $2 key deposit, not included in today's Groupon) and refuel at the snack bar using their two $3 credits to ensure consistently potent pirouettes.
In addition to offering more wheelie revelry than a hamster-powered energy drink mill, Sportsworld invites peripatetic patrons to strut the dance floor against the backdrop of music videos projected onto a 10-foot tall screen, or retreat to the retro arcade for nostalgic novelties, such as Ms. Pac-Man and Bubble Bobble.
This Groupon opens the floor for skate sessions held Thursdays through Sundays; check here for the full schedule.
- Duran Duran, Wham, Michael Jackson and Madonna pump from the stereo enhanced by brilliant flashing red, green, blue and orange disco lights, accentuating what looks like an old school gymnasium. Many gyrating bodies are already circling the floor with various levels of ability. – Hotels by City
Sportsworld welcomes families, birthday parties, and dates to a roller rink full of the sounds of music and the sights of skaters dancing and rolling across a disco-themed dance floor. Guests dine on hot dogs and sodas during birthday celebrations, belt out their favourite tunes at karaoke night, or master the finer points of skating during 90-minute skate lessons.
