Celebrate National Roller Skating Month

roller skateWhen you think of the month of October you may think of pumpkins, ghosts, haunted houses, candy, parties, costumes and more; but what else does October mean? National Roller Skating Month! That’s right, ever since October of 1983, our nation has honored roller skating during the month of October, so head to one of our Rollhaven locations and join the Rollhaven team in a month that celebrates fitness and family fun.

National Roller Skating Month was established in 1983 by President Ronald Reagan. He declared this month to remind families of the benefits of roller skating including a safe place to have fun with your family while getting fit, too!

In today’s world, many people are plugged into electronics (cell phones, laptops, computers, tablets, TVs, etc.), so it’s always refreshing to disconnect from the World Wide Web and partake in some quality fun with family and friends, and getting in some fitness fun is always a bonus! Not to mention, with the cool fall temperatures settling in, October is a great time to bring the fun inside the rink.

The Rollhaven team hopes you take part in our favorite month of the year – National Roller Skating Month! Check out our schedule to stay up to day on the days and nights that we are open this month.

Making The Most Of Your Roll Time

Roller Skating games Everything is better on roller skates, right? Our team at Rollhaven says “absolutely!” Roller skating is a great way to build endurance and get in shape. Check out some cool games to play next time you’re at the rink.

Relay races
Classic relay races are also fun on roller skates. Pick up speed and bring your team to victory!

4 Corners
Everyone skates until the music stops then everyone has to skate to 1 of the 4 corners of the rink. With their eyes closed, one designated person calls out a corner 1-4. If your corner is called out, you are eliminated. The game goes on until only 1 person is left standing.

Freeze tag
Lace up your skates and have fun with friends with this classic game. One person is selected to be the “tagger.” This person goes around trying to tap their friends, while everyone else tries their best to stay away from the tagger because if they are tagged-they’re frozen!

Limbo
A classic game of limbo, on roller skates! See how low you can go on skates. Don’t touch the stick.

These are just some of the fun games kids can play on roller skates. It’s a fun way to get the kids moving. Join us this week for Open Skate at the rink. Visit our website for session hours and admission details.

A Fun Alternative to Roller Skating

Laser tag at Rollhaven At Rollhaven, we specialize in clean family fun for people of all ages and understand that roller skating may not be for everyone. That’s why we offer other attractions like laser tag at our Grand Blanc location.  Check out why laser tag with us is a great alternative to roller skating.

You Are The Game!

Participants are split into two teams and play to get the highest score. What does it take to get the highest score? Your team gets one point each time a player tags an opponent, so the team with the most points at the end of the gyms, wins. Do you want to know the best part? Nobody is ever out of the game, if you get tagged, you simply go to the Energy Pod to recharge your Phaser. You’ll be back in the game in no time!

Let’s Get Started.

After a brief explanation of the game, players are given lightweight vests and phasers, then put right in the middle of all the action. We use water-based fog, a non-allergenic theater grade product, to protect players and no actual lasers are used in this game.

It’s A Game for Everyone.

This activity is great for birthday parties, families, youth groups, scouts, office team building exercises. Don’t wait, call and schedule your next activity with us. Ask about our private arena rental.

Learn All About S.T.E.M. at Rollhaven

In the education environment, the acronym S.T.E.M. holds great value; these letters stand for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics — fields which are part of many curricula. Generating interest in these fields can have tremendous benefits for children, but they can also have fun in the process of learning. At Rollhaven, children can do just that: learn all about S.T.E.M. and have fun with our S.T.E.M specific field trips! Take a look at how these fields are important:

WEBSITE STEM SLIDER 2

Supplementary Education

Schools generally have educational programs in science and mathematics, but students do not always have the opportunity to explore engineering and technology. Even if electives are offered in these subjects during high school, the fear of the unknown can overwhelm young learners. Attending a field trip that introduces these disciplines can help to overcome some of those qualms.

College Scholarships

As your children reach the end of their high school careers, you will likely find them pursuing various scholarships to fund their college education. In fact, they may find scholarships particularly in the S.T.E.M. disciplines. When they have a solid learning base and an interest in the field, the opportunity to receive these scholarships can grow.

Career Possibilities

Right now, participating in these field trips might just be fun for your kids, but when they become older, they can fondly recall the experiences that they had and transmute those experiences into college studies and career opportunities.

Our S.T.E.M. Field Trips focus on these important fields and they engage and inform your young learners in ways that can truly shape their futures! Schedule your school’s field trip today!
