Our Favorite Roller Rink Games!

We all love roller skating, but going around in circles can get a little monotonous sometimes! So we’d like to share a few of our favorite games. These are super easy, safe and they’ll keep the whole gang entertained. Check it out!

roller skating games

  • Musical Skates: Familiar with musical chairs? It’s the same deal! Instead of chairs, skaters will have to stop at a black “x” on the floor (use tape). Like musical chairs, make sure you have one more skater than x’s. Grab a DJ to play some music, and have them stop it at random intervals. When the music stops, skaters will have to find the closest x…and whoever doesn’t make it onto an x will be out! Keep going until the last person stands.
  • Roller Tag: Put a fun twist on a good ole’ classic! Find an empty parking lot, rink or gym and get a group on skates. Pick one person to be the tagger. This person will chase the other skaters in an attempt to tap their back. If someone gets tapped, they’re it! To make it a little more interesting, add multiple taggers.
  • Corners: Who doesn’t love a little incentive? Gather some note cards and write down different areas of the rink. They can vary; examples may be “snack bar” or “DJ booth.” Put all the note cards in a hat, and start some music. Tell the skaters to start skating around the rink. When the music stops, the DJ will pick up a card, and whoever is closest to that location will win a small prize! This is a great game for parties or for rink events.
  • Food Relay: This is a tricky one, but it could improve your skating skills and inspire some team bonding! Gather a large group and split them into two teams. Create two distinct lanes on the rink using cones (or any other item you can find), and then mark a start and finish line for each lane using tape. Line the teams up behind the start line. On go, the first player on each team will have to weave through cones, holding a certain amount of pizza boxes (let’s say 5). If at anytime anyone drops their boxes, they have to go back to the start! First team to go through all of their players, wins!

We can’t wait to see you guys try these out! Be courteous to others during open skate time and let us know if you’d like to start one of these games. We recommend these mostly during private parties or as suggestions during Roller Kingdom events. We’ll see you soon!

How Fit Is Your Brain?

Young or old everyone wants to have a brain that is fit and ready to respond to the demands of daily life. We crave that spark of focused concentration that we may have once had. Well, you can have that again, but it comes through getting regular daily exercise to help your body and mind maintain optimum fitness. One of the most enjoyable ways to get that level of fitness that your brain needs is through roller skating.

Roller Skating For Your Brain
Believe it or not, skating is one of the safest and most enjoyable sports that you can try. It is twice as safe as gymnastics, three times safer than football, four times safer than basketball, and five times safer than cycling. If you are interested in weight loss, you may note that roller skating for just one hour burns over 600 calories. You can get your cardio workout through roller skating, which can get your heart rate up to around 148 beats per minute giving you an excellent chance for a healthy heart benefit.

In fact, is you are interested in strength training, then you may be interested to know that roller skating works a greater number of muscle groups than practically any other exercise that you can do. It works the glutes, calves, quads, abs, and arms muscle groups effectively. Roller skating is easier on the joints than many other athletic activities and causes 50% less stress on your joints than running. Additionally, you can build great muscle strength and endurance through roller skating.

If you are concerned about your health and well-being, then roller skating is a great choice for a healthy body and mind. Why not consider checking out the rest of our website and checking out all of the options that are available for you and your family.

Roller Kingdom’s Skate Rebate

You’ve seen the brand new skates we’ve featured online right? The new GT50 Plus has an LED strip around the boot that lights up. We can’t think of any other words to describe the skates except for SWEET! Nope, that’s not true, you could also say they are AWESOME, AH-MAZING, and THE BEST skates ever! We might be overdoing it a little, but then again, take a look at these skates and you’ll see exactly what we’re talking about.

So here’s the deal, at Roller Kingdom, we pride ourselves on our skate shop. And for a little over two years, we’ve been offering the Great Skate Rebate. Whether it has been a while since you’ve purchased skates, you’re ready to upgrade, you’re purchasing your first pair, or you simply can’t resist the GT50 Plus, it does not matter. The Great Skate Rebate still applies!

What is the Great Skate Rebate?

We’re so glad you asked. When you purchase a pair of skates from us, we’ll give you a Roller Kingdom certificate for admissions in return for the same dollar amount that you spent. Yes, that’s right, if you buy a pair of skates for $100, you’ll have $100 to use toward admission at Roller Kingdom. Essentially, your new skates are going to pay for themselves to be worn time and time again with free admission to Roller Kingdom.

Why should I purchase skates at Roller Kingdom?

Again, we’re glad you asked. We’ve got a few favorite things that we love about our in house skate shop:

  • We carry a fine variety of skate styles and sizes in stock
  • If we don’t have what you’re looking for, we’re able to custom order any type of skate, wheel, or bearing
  • Try before you buy. You could always order skates online, but how will you know what they’re truly capable of? We’ve got the roller skating rink right here! All you have to do is try them out and take them for a spin!

So, there you have it. An amazing deal, and an amazing skate shop. Put those two things together, and you’ll have an amazing future ahead of you that includes lots of roller skating at Roller Kingdom! Visit us online or in person to see a full selection of all that we offer.

And of course, get social with us and show us your roller skates on TwitterFacebook, or Google +

Best Birthday Bash in New England

Where will you have your birthday party this year? With all of the options out there, it can be hard to decide where and how to celebrate.

It doesn’t matter if the birthday guest is turning six or 76, we cater to the birthday party needs of everyone!

Food is included in the Deluxe, Super Deluxe, and Teen Party packages. However, if you’re looking for options in addition to pizza or hot dogs, take a look at our custom options including a veggie platter.

All of these allows for less hassle at home, which in our opinion translates to more fun for everyone!

End of Season Team Parties

The buds on the trees, and the early spring blooms are proof that spring is on the way! This means that there will be more sightings of uniformed players on the soccer fields and in the ball fields as spring sports season gets rolling. At Roller Kingdom, we’re always rooting for our favorite teams, and we love to celebrate with them at the end of the season.

New England Fundraising Tips

We love to partner with schools and other organizations within our Tyngsboro and Hudson communities through fundraisers. While we’ve provided tips for successful fundraising in the past, it is a timely topic to visit again with spring fundraisers on the rise. A few fundraising tips from SignUpGenius.com caught our eye, and we thought we would share a few that we’ve seen in action.

Combine FundraisersFundraisers in New England

One fun way to do this at Roller Kingdom is through a silent auction. Many schools ask for donations of goods or services that can be left out during the fundraising night in the form of a silent auction. This is a great way to combine a large fun night at Roller Kingdom with a smaller silent auction. A fun spin on this is to ask classroom parents to create themed baskets for a silent auction throughout the night.

Limit the Fundraising

This rule of thumb is one that many parents are grateful for! We’ve all had that niece, nephew, cousin, or co-worker’s child that seems to be constantly fundraising for something. At Roller Kingdom, we’re happy to provide a fun fundraiser that promotes, fitness and fun, while providing an easy way to raise money. This beats selling wrapping paper any day!

Call Roller Kingdom today with any questions about your fundraising needs! We’ll be happy to discuss the details and help you schedule your next fundraising night!
