With its combination of friction-free motion and wholesome fun, roller skating quickly replaced ditch digging and dancing frenetically to “Shipoopi” as America’s favorite first-date activity. Rediscover the appeal of the wheels with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get a roller-skating outing for four at Stardust Skate Center in Sarasota (up to a $48 value). Each outing includes:
- Four admissions (up to an $8 value each).
- Four regular roller-skate rentals (a $2 value each).
- Four sodas (a $2 value each).
Skaters blaze across Stardust Skate Center’s retro-themed, 14,000-square-foot rink amid a flurry of spotlights, lasers, and scanning beams. After retrieving their eight-wheeled rentals, friends and families strap in and set out on a circular trip down memory cul-de-sac. A giant disco ball fills the room with refracted light as foursomes choreograph roller dances to DJ-spun tunes that pump from a surround sound system synced up with the kaleidoscope of lights. After an hour or two of hairpin turns and confused wrestling maneuvers, skaters can enjoy well-earned refreshments in the complex's remaining 10,000 square feet of entertainment space. Stardust Skate Center is open for public skating on Fridays and Saturdays, and on Sundays starting October 2. Check the schedule for times.
