In roller skating, as in dangling from the edge of a cliff, it's important not to let a fear of falling make you miss an opportunity to hold someone's hand. Don't leave today’s Groupon hanging: for $12, you get a skating package for two at The Rink (up to a $25 value). The package includes:
- Two admissions (up to a $6/person value)
- Two roller-skate rentals (a $2.50 value each)
- Two slices of pizza (a $2/slice value)
- Two sodas (a $2 value each)
The recently renovated, energetic interior of The Rink sets skaters to gliding beneath sparkling disco balls, chomping at the snack bar, and testing digit dexterity at the arcade. Strap on rented wheels and hit the floor beneath a dazzling chromatic display while skating to the beat of familiar current jams, requested ballads from the DJ, or throwback sounds of Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring. Duos can wheel-dance across the floor before working reenergizing with slices of pizza and sodas from the snack bar. The Rink also boasts a token video arcade, where inner children can get their 8-bit fix, collecting tickets to redeem at the prize counter.
The Rink's rates vary throughout the day and week.
Colorful lights glide across the glossy floor at The Rink alongside the spinning wheels of roller skates and roller blades. To set the pace, the DJ at The Rink spins upbeat hits, often selecting tunes from a specific era, such as dance pop from the 1980's or Russian turbo-folk from the 1880's. When not skating, guests can refuel with nachos, pizza, and popcorn at the snack bar, or embark on virtual adventures in the video arcade. Several of the games reward winners with tickets, which can be traded in at the prize counter for toys, bracelets, and novelties.
