United Skates of America soundtracks crackerjack skate moves with electrifying, kid-friendly tunes. Families, friends, or bobsled teams can band together with four-person admission and skate rentals, bonding via rink-romping high jinks and the hypnotic effects of skating in circles. From a reserved party area, roller-tykes can plan their domination of the rink and demolish a large one-topping pizza and two pitchers of soda, aided by or ignoring a full supply of serving ware and utensils. The birthday kid gets to mount the lofty heights of the DJ booth to choose a mini playlist and legally oblige all attendees to do the Locomotion. Then, he or she gets to spin the Wheel of Fortune to win prizes in the Stuff Shop. All guests can attempt to win goodies or last-minute birthday gifts with four game tokens each in the arcade. Throughout the 2- to 2.5-hour event, an energetic, experienced party host will keep the festivities on track. Though skate rental is included, rollers are welcome to wield their own wheels, but rocket skates are strictly forbidden.
United Skates of America, Inc.
Named by USA Today as one of the top 10 roller-skating destinations in the country, United Skates of America, Inc. in Tampa provides indoor family fun with a spacious rink and various skating games. Jam skating combines dancing and gymnastic moves set to Top 40 hits, and skating limbo blends the formerly disparate joys of rollerblading and chiropractic therapy. When fatigued by the rigors of the rink, children can refuel on pizza and soda at the snack bar. Inside the arcade, they enjoy games of air hockey and Ms. Pac Man, which teaches kids the importance of a nutritious diet high in fruit and ghosts.
