Date night is a popular way for couples to make time for each other and stay connected despite the demands of their busy lives.

In fact, some relationship experts say that date night isn’t a luxury for a healthy long-term relationship… It’s a necessity!

Roller Skating Date Night
Dress for success.
Part of any good date night is dressing appropriately… And letting your partner know what to wear is important too, even if you’re surprising them with an activity. For a skating rink date night, you’ll obviously need to wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move around while skating. Let your date know not to wear anything too tight, restrictive, or long and flowing (save the maxi skirts and dresses for another time so you don’t get tripped up or on). You should also wear thick socks, preferable ones that come up higher on the ankles. If you’re trying to surprise your date, pack a pair of socks for them without their knowledge.
Just because you’re dressing for comfort and physical activity doesn’t mean you should look like a slob, though. Take time to look your best, even if you’re just rocking jeans and a t-shirt.
Get in the groove.
Skating is the perfect date night activity because it checks all the boxes:
- It’s fun and makes you feel like a kid again. The skating rink is basically a “worry-free” zone where you can be in the moment without outside stressors.
- The atmosphere adds to the mood. Low lights, a disco ball, and the general sense of good vibes all make it easy to relax and cut loose. Best of all, you don’t have to decorate; it’s just part of the experience at Chester Skateland.
- Good music is a given. Nothing has the ability to take you back down memory lane quite like music. Ask the DJ to play “your song” and take your love for a spin around the rink.
- As if all of the above weren’t enough incentive to plan a skating date, it’s one of the only activities where holding hands is basically mandatory. Like the song says, we all need somebody to lean on!
