Our skating parties start at $164.99 for 10 children INCLUDING the birthday child and the price will vary based on the amount of food, game cards, and glow items that you would like each child to receive. See a complete list of our kid roller skating birthday party packages.

How old do you have to be to have a Birthday Party?

We have no age limit on our World’s Greatest Birthday Parties. We have many party packages designed to fit kids, teens, adults, and private parties.

Can we bring in outside food or drinks?

We do not allow outside food or drinks into the roller rink. However if you have a reserved Birthday party booked, we will allow you to bring in a cake or cupcakes and individual cups of ice-cream.

We have booked a birthday, can we use our own roller skating party decorations for the table?

Yes, if you bring us your skating decorations the day before we will even decorate the table for you. The only thing we ask is no confetti or banners. (You can bring the cake, individual ice cream, and balloons (must be on balloon weights) on the day of the party.)

Is there food available for the adults that attend our child’s party?

Definitely, we have a full menu for you to order for your birthday party. You may order your items prior to the birthday party or even the day of the party. You will have a party host/hostess that will help you on the day of the party.

How early can we show up for our party?

We will open the doors approximately 10-15 minutes before the scheduled start of the
session. We suggest that all roller skating rink parties arrive no earlier than 10 minutes
before the party.

Can we bring in a birthday cake and decorations if we do not have a party reserved/booked?

Unfortunately, you are not allowed to bring in cake or decorations if you do not have a reserved birthday party.

Is the Birthday child free?

The birthday child is not free and is included in the count.

Will the mom and dad of the birthday child be free?

Mom and dad are not free.

Is there a deposit required to reserve your party?

We require a $50 non-refundable deposit for Ultimate and VIP parties and $100.00 non-refundable deposit for Private Birthday Parties that are due at the time of booking in order to reserve your party. Your deposit does go towards your total bill.

Are there any extra roller skating party theme options available?

Yes! You can choose one of our various themes for your skating party. You can view the pricing and available themes in our birthday party packages section.

Where do we check in for our birthday party?

Once you arrive, come to our cashier counter and let us know the name for the birthday party. We will take it all from there! Your skating party host will greet you, take you to your table, and provide you information about getting your roller skates.
