Thanks to the invention of roller rinks, ordinary citizens can strap on a pair of skates without the long hours of delivering trays of burgers and banana splits to fussy drive-in diners. Roll without the work with today's Groupon to Thrills on Wheels Skate Center & Arcade in Searcy. Choose between two options:
• For $5, you get admission for two including skate rentals (up to a $12 value).
• For $69, you get a birthday pizza party for 10 kids (a $139 value).
Specializing in birthday-party packages, Thrills on Wheels Skate Center & Arcade's full-service fun center hosts a skating rink and arcade in a 21,000-square-foot facility outfitted with vivid green accents and purple carpet. Slip into a pair of rental skates and settle in for an afternoon of leisurely skating with a friend or a competitive disco-style skate-off with a longtime nemesis. In between high-stakes barrel rolls, skaters can give jealous hands a workout on classic arcade games or refuel with concession-stand snacks (not included with this Groupon).
For groups of rolling revelers, Thrills on Wheels unfurls birthday memories with a complete party package for 10 kids—including skates, pizza, soda, ice cream, candles, and a quiz about the new chores and extra responsibilities that come with age. Partygoers have access a private room for the duration of the party, and a dedicated party director ensures that parents can settle old skee-ball scores without worrying that guests will take it upon themselves to create in-line rollerblades out of the rental skates. Consult the schedule to pick an ideal time.
Though Thrills on Wheels Skate Center offers daily specials, this Groupon represents the best available value.
