(Keeping right up with you Kathie)

Skateland in Bradford has a great adult night on Thursdays from 7:30pm - 10:00pm.

Admission is $6.00 and is an 18+ skate.

Music is old school and new school rhythmic style.

I had the pleasure of attending one of the best Adult sessions that I have ever been to! The Palace Skating Center in N. Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) has 3 Adult skating sessions.. Wed night from 9pm-11pm, Saturday night from 10:30pm-12 midnight, and Tuesday morning from 10:30am-12noon. You must be 18 or older to attend.

It would be helpful to include the name of the state or province in which these rinks are located. Spelling out the state or province name (instead of abbreviating it) is also helpful because skaters outside your country or your immediate area might not recognize the abbreviations.

Also, if these adult-night rinks have Web sites, a link would helpful.

I really hope skaters will learn about their local adult skate nights in this thread and try to attend them and see what they're like.

Ill have to say that the Adult Nights in Philly are among my favorites. Make sure you stop by the Palace in Philly. The info is posted above on that one.

Braadford, Massachusetts Skateland is also a great one. www.skateland.org

Semoran also has one on Tuesdays for 18 and older 8-11
www.semoranskateway.com

Universal in Orlando FL
Only during the Summers 18 and older
Wednesday night 8-11
www.universalskatecenter.com

United skates in Tampa FL
Thursday nights from 9 - midnight
www.unitedskates.com 18 and older

skate station in Orange Park, FL
Sunday Nights from 8-11 Really good R &B Night 18 and older
www.skatestation.com

Sparkles of Hiram Hiram GA
Wednesday Night from 8-11 16 and older
www.sparklesrollerrinks.com

I have been to a few more in Cali, Texas, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, and Chicago that I just cant remember all the info. Ill see if I can dig it up. Here are the list of the rinks though.

Houston Texas has a great one on Sunday Nights. I dont remember which rink.

The Rink in Chicago Illinois has a few great R&B nights.

Orbit Skate Center in Pallintine, Il has one on Thursday nights I believe.

San Diego California has an adult night that I enjoyed. I dont remember the name of it but it did have a good adult night on Sunday or Monday night I believe.

Out door skating in Venice Beach or Times Square is always a great adult style skating. Its always Saturday or Sunday during the day time.

If i remember more then ill post them up. Ive traveled to alot of adult nights but I never write the info down. The list could go for days with me. haha

Default Philly Palace Report from Brikkee

Hi Brikkee,

Just saw your posts on this tread/thread.

SO, What's your report and did you have anybody in the middle doing funny leg stuff, not your spins OR maybe??

Yours in Skating, MA/NY Skating Dave

Valley Skating Center, Donora PA (just south of Pittsburgh) used to have a Monday evening adult session during which, they had a couple sets of called dances. If you were still there at the end of the session, they would play what you wanted to dance to for anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes. Great for competitive sk8rs.

SKYBORN Skateland, Fairborn Ohio, just northeast of Dayton (and right next to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base for those of you who might be military) has a Wednesday night DANCE session during which they play nothing but dance music. Runs from 8 til 10, $5 admission. No called dances, since the whole night is dance music. Do whatever tempo is on. Rink is now owned by David Ripp, who is the Grandson of Chalrie Snyder - SNYDER SKATE COMPANY. Well, Snyder is now gone but the skating tradition lives on. David said that he would hold the adult dance night as long as he has the rink.

The Castle in Loveland Ohio, northeast suburb of Cincinnati, sporadically holds a dance session on a Sat afternoon (5 to 7) or Sunday. But it is "semi-occasional" and you have to call for the schedule.

Posted in the artistic forum but didn't make it here, the Wed nite adult session that has been a staple in Fairborn Ohio for over 25 years has now been moved to THURSDAY NITES. It is from 8PM until 10 PM now.

It was either that or it was going to be completely eliminated. At least we still have a dance session. Not many people go anymore. Something like 5 or so are at the session. SAD.

I really don't think it will have a negative affect on our 7-11 session. The adult crowd we have on Sat. nights that I have talked to all seem to prefer a later session all to themselves.

Hi Kathy,

We don't really have an adult night (YET) but we do have open "art" practice on Wednesday Nights starting @ 5PM till the last skater drops! We have one of the country's best organists move into the area, DAVE PADEN, who is also teaching here @ Skateland North GReensboro NC. If any one wants more info call Sue @ 336-406-0068 or Dave @ 336-996-5941. He's also going to be making more dance CDs as time permits in case anyone wants to add to their collections.

Hello Coach Sue!! I was so happy to read this posting. I was wondering what happened to Dave after the rink changed hands??? (this is Dave Paden from Cornwells, Bensalem Pa. that you mention here?) If so, I am happy he is still involved in skating, he is a definite asset!!!

Default Black rock roller disco washo co nv.

BURNING MAN... OPEN ONE WEEK EVERY YEAR 24-7 no age restrictions, but clothing optional and the bar is open. admission, free but burning man tickets are $200, I camped there last year. nice grippy floor got a bit windy and the dust storm and thunder showers made it unskatable at times. but still a fun time for all. floor was coated with grip dust. over a fiber board that was surprisingly skateable. beer and bacardi plus some vodka mix . plus coffee. no snack bar. so pedal your bike over it's retro night every night for a week. the first week in september for the past 20 years. see you there.
