For a limited time, get admission, roller skate rental, and small sodas for four people for just $18! That’s a value of $50 for less than a $20 bill. We also have a 2-person deal, so head over to Groupon to learn more and get yours before they’re gone!
Good for All Ages
Aside from the value of skating at Chester Skateland, we’re also a great destination when you want to entertain a mixed group of kids and adults. Skating is fun and accessible for everyone from little kids to teens to parents, and even grandparents.
We play great music and the atmosphere is always positive and family-friendly. Turns out it’s pretty much impossible to be in a bad mood when you’re cruising around on wheels!
Healthy and Active Fun
While there are so many reasons to bring your family to our Chester, Virginia skating rink, one of the most important reasons is the physical activity skating provides. Roller skating isn’t just fun, it’s also a wonderful low-impact exercise that burns calories, tones muscles, improves stamina, and can even improve balance and spatial awareness.
In addition to helping kids improve their coordination skills, skating is a great cross-training exercise for athletes who run or play soccer, basketball, etc. Because it’s low-impact (meaning it’s easier on your joints) skating can be a gentle way to stay moving even when you need a rest day from more intense forms of exercise.
It’s easy to fall off the wagon with your fitness routine and nutrition during the holidays, but remember, you can enjoy seasonal treats and still stay active despite the cold weather and shorter days. We hope to see you skating with us soon!
