I grew up coming here on weekends and for school skate parties. It's so cool that they have continued the tradition and maintained Magic Elm as a healthy, fun and safe place for kids to go to.While my skating skills have far since gone awry, I love watching my daughter learn and hone her skating ability!

I attended a birthday party at Magic Elm with my grand son and had a wonderful time. The staff is very attentive to the little ones and I felt that the music was family friendly as well. My grand son frequently requests that we go again soon!

The manager here makes the entire place worthwhile. I believe his name was Gary, and he couldn't do enough for us.
