Orbitz is close to the kettering rink.

I think Castle has just evening sessions. Orbitz floor doesnt have stuff in the center, and may be a nicer session rink to attend. Ill get the rink times.

Orbit
http://www.orbitfuncenter.com/index.php/schedule.html

Kettering
http://www.skateworldofkettering.com...-Schedule.aspx

Castle
http://www.castleskateland.com/schedule.aspx



Alternate rinks, and their times, I am not checking locations other than that they are in the columbus/dayton/Cincinnati area. It may be a good idea to stay where there is the option of a different rink in case one of the sessions we attend sucks. Or if you want to visit more than 2 rinks.

Other Cincinnati rinks.


Skatetown usa
http://www.skatetownusa.us/skating-schedule/

Fun Factory
http://www.funfactoryrollerskating.c...-schedule.aspx

The skatin place
http://www.theskatinplace.com/hours.html

Dayton.
Skate world of Vandalia
http://www.skateworldofvandalia.com/...index.html#mp2

This rink is close to Orbit and Kettering.




Myself, I love what most would call a crowded floor. Our smaller rink here where I live doesn't get enough people for me until theres about 100 + people on it.

Of the rinks listed i have been to orbit on an adult night, kettering and castle on publics and I liked castle more. Orbitz has a brand new floor and is a skating rink, the floor is very large. Kettering is a fun center of sorts, they dont have as many skaters, as there are just kids on skates.

I dont have time constitutances. So what works for you? As said earlier it would be good to keep th e option of a second rink in mind for either day just in case. I like to backwards skate and some rinks in the area dont like that. Orbit doesnt care, nor did kettering.

Default 5:30 at Kettering looks good

If it sucks we'll have time to move on. I'm kinda oposite, I love a fairly empty rink.
As for backwards, we've never seen a no backwards rink in these parts. Can't really imagine it. I go backwards more than forwards. It would be a challenge for me to not turn around.

Yea, the rinks around there were my first encounter with such strict no backwards. The other place was Champs in Lexington Kentucky.

Friday session? Orbitz? Castle?

I didnt plan things as timelines go.

Personally I didn't like kettering that much overall. maybe because it was empty to me, or because of its setup. But the rules were pretty lax and no one complained at my speed or backwards.

The times I went to Orbit was an adult skate, and castles session was a weekend. Good crowd but they are one of those "no backwards skating" well, you can on the inside of the rink, or only during special skates, they allow full rink for backwards skating.

I really wanna check out Orbits since they have a new floor.

Ill make a list of rink potentials and times, what time must you leave out on Saturday? What time will you be in on friday? How late or earky do ya wanna skate?

I told dmacalk that I would be in Kettering on Friday the 20th at 5:30.

I found my drive was really just 2.5 hours so we can stay until 9 or 10 on Saturday. We can check out the new floor at orbit if you like. I'd really like to get on the road earlier though. A day skate on saturday would be nice.

I haven't been paying close attention... but I could be up for a skate.

Left out of the above discussion is another Cincy rink, Beechmont Rollarena, which has a good adult night once a month. Unfortunately it was last Friday.

Default ok here we go.

Castle in Cincinnati for friday? This way saturday in the kettering/dayton area is closer for your return right?

This allows a more leisurely time before session @ Castle,
7 to 10, 6 dollar admission, or a family pack is available which works well as its not available on Sat.


FRIDAY
Family Night - Top 40 Music
7:00 - 10:00 pm*
$6.00 admission
-or-
Family Deal: Only $25
Family deal includes:
4 admissions
4 Regular Skate Rentals (if needed)
1 Pizza
1 Drink Pitcher

one rink on friday might be a good call as it keeps us out of the cars after a long haul. Then we can get rink crazy on Saturday.

SATURDAY

Then We can do (if you down for an early skate at Vandalia its listed too) Kettering rink on Sat, for maybe a Day skate, and Orbit that evening.

Skateworld of Vandalia
Kids fun skate 11:00am - 1:00pm
Admission 4.25



Skateworld of Kettering
Saturday: 12:00- 7:00 Kids fun skate
$6.50 Per Skater
(Feat. Radio Disney /Top 40 Music)*

Maybe grab a refreshing beverage between these 2 locations, an hour to burn and they are 20 minuites apart or so. I think.. about 12 miles.

Orbit
Teen skate 8:00 - 11:30
Admission 6.50

Ummmm... Maybe during regular sessions. Certainly NOT during the adult skate Tim and I went to. There was even a guy playing saxophone skating backwards!

Castle on Friday night sounds good to me!

adult skates pretty much have no rules, you do what ever you want. Lol if your being a jackass its likely several skaters will let you know your not welcomed
