recreation-2027705__340

Visiting your local skating center for a day of family fun is a classic pastime and a rite of passage for almost every youngster in America. So it shouldn’t come as a big surprise that the entire month of October is dedicated to the history of skating and celebrating this family-friendly activity. October is National Roller Skating Month!

At Skateland, we love being able to provide our neighbors in Bradford, MA, a chance to fall in love with skating. But just in case you’re still on the fence about the joys of skating, check out these really cool perks that come along with our favorite pastime!

Skating Makes You Healthier

Did you know that roller skating at a moderate pace can burn off the same amount of calories as running or jogging? It’s true! You can burn anywhere from 300 to 600 calories an hour while having the time of your life. Plus, it’s much better for your joints and bones than the hard impact that running has on your body.

Skating Makes Memories for a Lifetime

Skating is fun and family-friendly. And what better activity could there be when you’re planning a big birthday bash? Celebrating a birthday at our skating center provides hours of non-stop fun, party favors, and full concessions. The only problem is that it’ll be hard to top next year!

Make New Friends

Roller skating draws a diverse crowd of people and gives kids an opportunity to meet and hang out with a whole new group of friends that they might not otherwise meet. Plus, the intensity and pure joy of spending time rolling around the rink means you’ll want to keep coming back!

At Skateland, we offer amazing party packages, a ton of open skating times and so much more! Give us a call today to find out what all the hype is about and then roll on by for a great time!
