Family-owned and run, Skate and Shake roller rink has existed, in one form or another, in its existing location since the 1960s. That means that several generations have glided across the rink's shimmering blue floor, a testament to the timeless appeal of the family-friendly sport. To keep things fresh, the staff often gets creative with the lighting to change the look and feel of the skating rink, turning blacklights on for glow skate nights or swapping in all pink lights to ready it for a kid's birthday party. In addition to open skate sessions and over 60 themed party options, the rink also plays host to a number of special events throughout the week, including special teen or adult-only nights, hockey, and women's roller derby. And, it even has a licensed after school program for kids that want to study extra hard for the roller skating portion of their SATs.
