Summer Fun of All Kinds!

Whether you’re planning a party for a church group, summer camp, or school field trip, finding a summer activity that everyone will enjoy can be tough. At many venues, booking group parties gets expensive, and the threat of rain or sweltering weather can ruin any outdoor activity with little to no warning. But there’s one activity you can count on to entertain everyone, rain or shine: roller skating! Book your group party at Rollerland and take advantage of our vast array of party packages for group events in Fort Collins.

Rollerland: Made for all Kinds of Fun

  • camp kids marchingSports teams Roller skating isn’t just a fun hobby to enjoy with family and friends. Skating is a great form of exercise, a fun way to expend energy, and a great reward for kids sports teams after a great season.
  • Church groups – The classroom can be a great place to love, learn, and love learning, but everyone needs to step out of their comfort zones from time to time. Take a day off for a group trip to Rollerland skate center and give the kids a chance to make friends, let Sunday School and VBS lessons sink in, and have fun in different environments.
  • Daycares As any parent could tell you, no child likes feeling cooped up for too long. Even in a daycare setting, kids need a day just to step out of their familiar environments and have some fun. Even if the kids are too young to skate, they’ll love our indoor playground!

Rollerland offers party packages to accommodate any size group for any occasion. You can even book a group event online for added convenience! To learn more about summer field trips in Fort Collins, check out our Facebook page.

Teach Kids to Love STEM

The Rollerland team loves seeing kids get excited about education. We encourage students to engage their curiosity in science, technology, engineering, and math with interactive STEM field trips that combine two awesome things: roller-skating and learning.

Why We Need STEM Education

kids with chemistry setStudies show that STEM fields are growing faster than any other industry. But student interest doesn’t match the need for qualified candidates, and many of the available positions go unfilled. Why? Because sometime around middle school, many students lose interest in learning about STEM. Many upper level classes don’t encourage kids to stay interested in STEM. And in many school systems, girls are actively discouraged from pursuing science, technology, engineering, or math education. So what can we do to close the gap?

STEM Field Trips

Rollerland is doing our part to show kids that STEM can be fun. Our lessons incorporate the science of motion, acoustics, rink design, engineering and lighting, and physical fitness to build a foundation of curiosity and problem-solving in the minds of elementary and middle school students. We have a variety of lessons available, and we’re happy to partner with Fort Collins teachers to find the STEM lessons that most closely match their current curriculum. After an hour of STEM education, the kids will get 2 hours to roller-skate. After all, exercise is good for the brain!

Whether you’re looking for a fun spring outing or planning ahead for the fall curriculum, our skating center is here to help. Call today to book a Rollerland STEM field trip.

4 Tips for an All-Star Team Party

Your kids put a lot of work into sports. Reward them with a team party! Whether you’re kicking off the season with a team bonding social event or celebrating a great season of teamwork and fair play, you’ll want to book a Rollerland sports team party. You’ll get food and refreshments, tokens, 1 hour in the party room, and your choice of unlimited roller-skating, unlimited playground (for kids 11 and younger), 2 runs/guest in the Laser Maze Challenge, or 12 tokens per child for the arcade. Dancers, ball players, cheerleaders, and other kids sports teams will have a blast at a Rollerland bash.

4 Tips for Planning a Kids Sports Team Party

  1. boy playing baseballMake a guest list. Will it be just kids and coaches, or will you invite parents and siblings along for the fun? Pre-season sports parties with no extra guests helps players get to know each other, building trust that will carry them through the season. Plan to invite families to post-season parties. Parents will want to support their kids and hear about the successes of the season.
  2. Pick a place. You’ll want a venue where there’s space for everybody, entertainment to keep the kids from getting bored, and staff to set up and clean up your party. If you get stuck throwing a team party at your place, you’ll wind up in charge of the food, the fun, and the mess.
  3. Find food. The kids are going to get hungry. Do you have a meal in mind? When you book a sports team party at Rollerland, we give each player 2 slices of pizza and a 12oz soda. They can also buy extra snacks from the snack bar.
  4. Make a fuss. The team had a great season. Make sure they know it! Acknowledge excellence on both an individual and a team level. Don’t just reward star performers, but also acknowledge kids who grew as players, helped teammates master new skills, and exemplified team spirit.

Don’t wait to plan your kids sports team party. Call Rollerland to reserve a party time. Then get rolling!

Valentine’s Day Skate Date at Rollerland!

Want a very special kind of Valentine’s Day date in Fort Collins? Then forget the long waits and crowded restaurants. There are other ways to have a wonderful Valentine’s Day date, like going roller-skating with your special someone!

valentines day
Why roller skating? The answer is: why not? Roller skating rinks used to be the “most hip” of all places to be. Although its popularity has shifted towards other family fun entertainment centers, roller skating rinks are still a great place to be and have tons of fun (we might be a little biased)! It’s a great way to get active and do something out of the box. If you don’t roller skate often, it’s something new and fun to try together (especially if it’s your first date). It’s also affordable, you have unlimited time, and you can bring the kids if you can’t find a sitter!

We’ve always believed roller skating isn’t reserved just for kids. It’s absolutely something perfect for teens and young adults too. It’s also something great for people of any age or fitness level. No reservations needed!

We can’t wait to see you on the special day! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for any updates we might have as far as prices and coupons for the big day.

Benefits of Roller Skating

  • 2017 calendarEasy on the joints: Since roller skating is not a high impact exercise, it is easier on your joints. This means you can roller skate without worry of knee or hip pain. It’s great for any age! Bring the entire family.
  • High calorie burn: Roller skating burns as many as ten calories per minute. The more intense your skating session, the more calories you’ll burn.
  • Total body exercise: Roller skating is a cross training exercise. This means it works your entire body. If you are new to the sport, you may be sore the first few sessions, but it’s a good sore which will soon go away as you get used to skating.
  • It boosts your mood: If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to be less stressed, skating can help! Exercise boosts serotonin, which puts you in a good mood.
  • Improve balance and coordination: Roller skating is an exercise which can help improve your balance and coordination. Skating engages the core to keep you upright, improving your balance. And your arms and legs have to work in tandem to keep you moving, so your coordination improves, too.
