Skate land was a lot of fun. We came here for a birthday party. For traditional skates it is $5 per person, and blades are $8 per person. Food is overpriced but not bad and they do have a $10 minimum for food at the Snack Bar. The skates are very dated so it may be worth looking into getting... More

Place is really old outdated smells musty and moldy, ceiling tiles falling apart. We have lived here 25 years and the place looks the same, needs a big makeover. We only go there maybe once every 2 years usually for a birthday party but will never go just to have fun. It is just too gross.

I wish I could give this place NO STARS! We were here for a birthday party and the GIRL working at the snack bar came over to inform everyone that they were closing in 5 mins so as the party was finishing up with opening presents I walked over to the girl sweeping the floor (which was the same one...

My 12 year old son, and brave senior dad and I went for fun. The basketballs rolled out and caused my dad to fall while trying to avoid falling ON the child chasing it. Luckily he wasn't hurt. Other than the obvious dangers of rollerskating, it was super fun just to watch some of the amazing talent. People watching was... More

Not a very kid friendly place. Why would anyone want to work at a roller rink where there are children present all of the time, if you "hate kids"? The Manager is rude, and make mean faces/gestures at people behind their backs, as well as snickering and talking badly about people. Overall there are many health hazards here, from the... More

Skateland is changing!!!! They just repainted the whole inside, and redone both restrooms. They are in the process I'd redoing the cafe too. My family spends at least three days a week there with my practices and open skates. My six year old son wants his birthday party there. The owners look after the small children skating the rink, the... More

Wow, this place is in need of some TLC. We were visiting the Olympia area and looking for something to do on a rainy afternoon. We went to a mid-week afternoon session. It was very reasonably priced ($3 including skates) but everything was in poor condition. The ceiling is scary at best and they actually had to drain some water... More

Where else can you find an old time roller skating rink? That means it is old and funky and fun! You can chose old roller skates, the ones with 2 wheels in front and 2 wheels in back, or roller blades for the more modern skaters. And if you haven't skated in years, just stick to the walls and enjoy... More

Classic 1950's skating rink. You rent your skates if you don't own your own -- and who does anymore? Well, the 10 year-old regulars do, that's who; the hotshots who compete in the grouped-by-age races. They play classic skate rink music, they still do the Hokey Pokey, they have a snack bar that sells giant red licorice strips. It's a... More
