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 a punch card good for five activities at Star City Skate & Play in Rocky Mount (up to a $33.75 total value). The five-punch card may be redeemed for:
- Open skate (up to a $6.75 value/admission). This option does not include skate rental, which ranges from $2 for roller skates to $3.50 for rollerblades or inline skates.
- The children’s indoor playground (up to a $6.75 value/admission)
- Laser tag (up to a $3 value/game)<p>
The five punches can be redeemed by one person in one visit or over multiple visits, or they can be shared among friends and families.
Wheeled boots click across lacquered floors, netted structures elicit childhood giggles, and lasers pierce the air at Star City Skate & Play’s fun-filled venue. The stars strewn across the navy-blue walls whiz by as patrons chase the reflected sparkles of a shiny disco ball that gleams above the ovular rink. DJs inspire fluid dance moves and five-act roller ballets about the invention of the wheel with a schedule of top 40, hip-hop, and family-friendly tunes.
At the playground area, kiddies 10 and younger scramble up netted structures protected by a network of foamy noodles bordering one of the area’s largest indoor play spaces. During 7.5-minute laser-tag sessions, players and ex teachers wielding confiscated laser pointers duck and dive between black-lit obstacles until a winner is rewarded with a free spin on the wacky prize wheel.
Star City Skate & Play’s prices fluctuate throughout the week.
