A New Year at Sky-Vue Skateland.
Can you believe we are three years and two decades from the beginning of Y2K? The anticipation of rolling into a new millennium was full of unknowns. And today it’s in the rearview mirror.
The New Year always seems to focus on new beginnings. If your focus is turning to a healthy lifestyle, consider roller skating, it’s fitness disguised as fun. No membership is required to join our fitness plan, just come and skate with us. Physical activity is the fountain of youth. Roller skating will keep you active, fit, and agile.
Our 4:00-6:00 pm time slot on Sunday afternoons is ideal for private birthday parties or group rentals. Everyone loves a skate party.
Sunday Afternoons: Beginning January 1, 1:30 pm
As the weather turns colder and people look for more things to do indoors, we add our Sunday afternoon session. This year we are changing the time to 1:30 to 3:30 pm so we can open an additional time slot for private rentals from 4:00-6:00 pm.
Sunday afternoon sessions are great for beginners, young families, and small groups. We love to see Sunday School classes from local churches bring their youth skating. Remember, Mrs. Denise gives her introductory learn to skate lesson at 2:00 pm. The lesson helps beginners understand what they need to do to skate.
Learn To Skate Class:
January 7, 12:45 pm
We offer a Learn To Skate Class each month from October through April. The class requires a four-week commitment and begins the first Saturday of the month. Students enter at 12:45 pm to put on their skates and warm up. The weekly lesson is taught from 1:00 until 1:25 pm. Instruction is given, correction of improper technique is identified, and lots of encouraging words are spoken to our students.
Class size is limited to 10 students per class. January 7 starts our new class.
Online Learn to Skate registration is preferred.
Skate & Play Ages 8 & Younger:
January 7, 10 am
The monthly Skate & Play for ages 8 & younger is January 7 at 10 am. Bring your children 8 & younger to the rink to experience our Skate/Play/Ride session designed just for them.
The session introduces young children to the skating rink. With a restricted age range they are not intimidated by older children.
We offer Fisher Price 123 skates as well as regular skate rentals and skate mates to assist beginning skaters. Some children enjoy riding the toys in our inventory: tricycles, big wheels, roller racers, and scooters. You are welcome to bring your own ride-on toy. Please clean the wheels of the toy if it has been used on outdoor surfaces. Motorized toys are not permitted.
It’s fun for the whole family. Parents are permitted to skate during this session. Admission for youth and skating adults is $10. Nonskating adults admission is $5.
We offer our Skate & Play session as a birthday party option. All birthday parties are private rentals for you and your guests only. You may book online at our website.
2 for 1 Weekend:
January 6 & 7
Our tweens and teens look forward to our 2-for-1 weekend. The promotion allows you to skate both Friday and Saturday evening sessions with Friday night’s paid admission.
You can skate for 2 nights for the price of 1. It’s a big deal to skate both nights of the weekend. Skate rental is always extra.
MLK Holiday Skate:
January 16, 1:00 pm
We like to skate when school is out for the holidays.
Monday, January 16, we’ll open 1:00-4:00 pm for skating. Admission is $10 and skate rental $4. Afternoon sessions are fun with games and activities. Come skate with us. We can teach you how to skate.
STEM Field Trips
Did you know we offer STEM field trips for schools and youth organizations? Mr. Reggie Cobb is our STEM instructor. He teaches one of our 10 lesson plan curricula (chosen by the teacher) to your class. After a multimedia presentation of the STEM concepts, students are divided into small groups for hands-on experiments. After exploring the stations, they return to discuss the outcomes. Next, Mrs. Denise gives instructions with demonstrations on how to skate. Students skate for two hours.
Teachers and students enjoy our three-hour field trip exploring STEM at the skating rink.
They will be engaged and excited to learn STEM at Sky-Vue Skateland. We are now booking groups for the spring semester of 2023. Email Mrs. Denise or call 252-442-7418 for additional information. We love our STEM field trips. It’s the most rewarding session we do each week.
Now booking January & February Birthday parties.
Since the average birthday party has 25 to 30 people attending, we offer our birthday parties as private rentals. We believe birthdays should be a special occasion.
The birthday celebrity and guests love having the rink for just their friends. They can let their hair down and really enjoy skating. Did you know even adults are known to put on a pair of skates?
Our rentals offer different options for food. We can prepare food for you or you can bring your own. Our party hostess will take care of all the details so the birthday Mom can enjoy the party instead of directing the party.
We offer the space and the entertainment for your celebration for a reasonable price. Click here to book online at our website.
Looking forward to September 2023
Sky-Vue Skateland opened its doors in September 1958. We are blessed to be celebrating 65 years of roller skating fun in Rocky Mount, NC. We’ll plan a Sunday afternoon celebration during September. You don’t want to miss this exciting milestone. Details to be announced.
