How should I dress for a roller skating party?
Roller skating is a physical activity, so you should dress comfortably in an outfit that gives you a wide range of movement and fits the dress code. And no matter what, make sure to wear or bring socks with you! You won’t be able to rent roller skates without socks, both for hygiene and comfort. Since most skates are cut higher on the ankle, you’ll want to bring tall socks to prevent the top of the boot from rubbing against your skin.
How old do kids need to be to learn how to roller skate?
There’s really no hard and fast rule for this; it all depends on your child’s individual development, skills, personality, etc. Some people learn to roller skate as toddlers, but for most kids, 5-8 is a good age range to learn the basics. However, it’s never too late to learn how to roller skate! Our roller skating lessons are a great deal and make it easy to get started.
What can I expect at the skating rink?
Well first of all, you can expect to have a lot of fun! Once you get the hang of it, roller skating is a great way to relax, socialize with friends, get some exercise, and enjoy great music. Here at Chester Skateland, we have a Pro Shop with everything you need to customize your skates and your overall look, from wheels and skate bearings to novelties and glow accessories.
