  • How far in advance do I need to make party reservations? –
  • You may reserve parties online up to two days prior to your desired date.  Closer than that and you need to book in person or over the phone. If you reserve at least 2 weeks in advance you will have the best selection of times.
  • We usually ask you to make a Private Parties reservation a week in advance, but we can accommodate last minute requests if the time is available.

  • What size skates do you rent? – From juvenile size 8-9 to adult size 15.
  • Can I bring my own skates? – Yes. We allow all kinds of regular roller skates and inline skates. We do ask that they be kept clean & hand carried into and out of Skate World and not worn in where they could track dirt onto the rink.
  • Can I wear my Heelys? – Sorry, because Heelys do not have wheels in the front and back and are not intended for “roller skating” they are not permitted.
  • Do you sell skates and equipment? – Yes! You can order skates in our skate shop.
  • What goes on at a public skating session? – Most sessions are set-up with a variety of special skates: All-Skate, Backwards, Couples. During daytime or family-oriented sessions we also do the Hokey Pokey, play games and give prizes.
  • If my child doesn’t skate well, can I walk on the floor to assist him/her? – During public skating sessions we allow parents to enter the skating floor in shoes to assist their children. We also rent out SK8 Mates. (The SkateMate is a great new product to help kids and adults learn to skate on their own. These are meant to be rented out at roller rinks to help new skaters get used to roller skating. They are available for $3 rental for each hour.)

The class costs $10 (including skates) and that also counts towards your admission. No reservation is necessary. Just show up and learn!! Children 3 and up are encouraged to attend. While learning ability varies, we find that usually within 3-4 class attendances, your child should be able to function on skates.
