Attractions & things to do for the kids in your life

Scooters Roller Palace (Mississauga)

Family Tested
High energy

Hold on!

I was breaking a sweat just fitting my two kids into their skates. Still, it was nothing compared to what I felt the second I hit the rink! Trying rollerblades for the first time while holding the hand of my unsteady 6-year-old was a very bad idea. Holding on the boards and crawling back onto the carpet (leaving my dignity behind), I went back to the rental counter to get myself good sturdy four-wheel retro leather skates. There's a disco feeling to roller-skating. Add a ceiling punctuated with colour spotlights and a mirror ball reflecting on the shining floor and you're back into the 80's. Add a couple of slow songs playing by the end of the evening and you might even get a flashback from your teenage years. The skate floor is huge. Some loops are printed on it for the keeners who want to practise routines. The place also includes small bowling lanes and a few arcade machines. Bring the glow-in-the-dark jewelry!

The disco feeling puts us in the mood!
Our mom wants to trade her roller skates for four-wheel skates’ please.No’ she can’t come to the desk.
Four wheels... good idea
Look for the all-age times. They sometimes reserve the floor for adults!
