Roller skating rink design has stayed relatively the same for decades.
Most skating rinks look similar, if not identical. Although the skating environment is fun, guests probably aren’t getting too excited about the look and feel of the space around them.
At US Design Lab, we think roller skating rink design doesn’t have to be boring; it can be beautiful, functional, and economical. Every successful family entertainment center needs a multi-use space designed for a variety of ways to generate income. After all, why have only a roller skating rink when you could have a huge event space too?
Great examples of multi-use roller skating centers include…
The beautiful multipurpose space for the largest entertainment venue in Florida, Xtreme Action Park. This 12,000 sq foot rink doubles as a huge, mind-blowing entertainment space, and can host events of up to 2,000 people.
With the addition of a 1,200 sq foot mezzanine for a DJ and VIP area, turning this roller skating rink into a must-have venue for anything from concerts to trade shows.
The Oaks Park Amusement Park and Skating Rink in Portland, Oregon that dates back to 1905. It still offers skating sessions with live Wurlitzer pipe organ, Live DJ, roller-derby, and freestyle slalom classes..always keeping it interesting.
SkateDaze in Omaha, Nebraska is a plethora of fun under one roof and the ideal business model that shows it doesn’t have to stop at just skating. The three-story, 26,000 sq ft play structure, PlayDazium, is the largest in the area. This rink also has laser tag and a bounce house for toddlers to teens, covering virtually all kids’ age-range
United Skates of America, located in our hometown of Tampa, FL is a cool and popular skating center with its claim-to-fame as one of the top “jam skating” rinks in the country. Jam skating is a combination of skating, dancing, and gymnastic moves that go along to music. Another cool and multi-use aspect of this center is that instructors use the rink to illustrate how roller skating relates to math an science.
These are just a fraction of how roller skating rinks have evolved to turn hum-drum into far-out for customers and business.
