At Rainbow Roller Rink, we’ve been bringing the fun to western New York since 1949. While a lot has changed in the last 70 years, one thing has stayed the same: Our North Tonawanda skating rink is still the place to go for a good time! From birthday parties to fundraisers and everything in between, we make it easy to host crowd-pleasing events that your guests will remember for years to come.
The jack o’lanterns are carved and the costumes are ready, so check out our tips for hosting a frightfully fun Halloween roller skating party!
The first rule of Halloween parties is “No one comes un-costumed to the Halloween party.” Make sure to let your guests know (by printed invitation, e-vite, or Facebook event) that everyone will be dressed up, so they’d better show up with their A game! And no, “I’m dressed as myself” will not fly. Consider providing some fun accessories (hats, feather boas, glitter gel, etc.) to ensure that any under-dressed guests can elevate their looks for the evening. With a well-dressed party and the colorful lights of the skating rink, you’re sure to not only have a great time, but also get some great pics for the ‘gram.
Halloween is one of the most fun holidays of the year, but just ask anyone who’s ever worked in the ER and they’ll tell you that it can also be a pretty dangerous day. Combine a bunch of excited, mostly unsupervised kids with unwieldy costumes, running around town at night, plus adults doing the same thing (while possibly under the influence) and it’s easy to see why some folks opt to celebrate Halloween indoors! Hosting your own Halloween roller skating party is a great alternative that keeps everyone safely off the streets while still being active and fun.
Make sure your guests know not to wear long capes, robes, or gowns; masks (notoriously dangerous because they obscure vision); or anything else that could be a safety hazard. Everyone will have a much better time if they’re wearing something comfortable and safe, not just for skating but in general!
Fun for Everyone
The key to a good party is ensuring that there are activities to please all of your guests, even if that’s not necessarily the same thing at the same time. That’s one of the reasons why roller skating parties are a good choice for birthdays and other special occasions! Here at Rainbow Roller Rink, we have arcade games and a bounce zone (height limit 54”) in addition to roller skating and great music! We even show current games on our large screen TVs for the sports fans.
Of course, no party is complete without some fun snacks! Don’t worry about cooking or arranging catering, because we have all the tasty treats your guests will love, including pizza, fries, cheese sticks, hot pretzels, chicken nuggets, nachos, chips, candy, drinks, and more.
