It's your typical skate experience. Employees are friendly, the price is cheap, food is snack bar type and it's clean. It's easy to get to right off 20! Love this place and the kids love it too!

My grandson and I went to Skateland on July 28, 2016. We had such a good time. Owner took time out of his busy day to talk to me when I asked him a question. Skateland is up-to-date and clean. The young man at the refreshment stand was very polite and helpful. I can't wait to go back!

I had so much fun here growing up. Hadn't been back in years. Last summer Groupon had a special family skating and pizza coupon, so I bought one. Our family had so much fun there. The owner came by our table and checked on us couple times, to see if everything was good. Everyone was so nice..great place for families.... More

Owner is a real tool. Went there for a birthday party. Owner kept hanging around the bathroom when someone would go in. He is a strange little guy.

Skateland, Owner at Skateland, responded to this review

Wow, how do you respond to such an allegation and personal attack?! Well first off, we, my wife and I, don’t have time to “hang” around the bathroom and still be able to run our business. We have more important things to take care of. If we were “hanging” around the bathroom, however, then that would indicate that we have... More

Not bad when going during a discounted rate, not worth it at their regular prices. Their food is inexpensive, which is a bonus. Bring your own skates, rentals add up with a big family.

We love Skateland! My kids have fun, it is clean and the music is good. There are extra things like homeschool skate days and roller hockey. The food is as good as food is at roller skating places. Plus they have fun coffee for the adults!
