Did you used to go rollerskating at a rollerskating rink when you were younger? There's only one left that I know of here in Long Island, NY. There used to be a lot back in the early 80's. It should make a comeback.

  • I LOVED rollerskating. I wish it was as big as it used to be. It was the big hang out spot for us....every week same time same place.

  • It was so fun! We had school events at the roller rink. I can't get my 8 year old to even try it. She says it's too hard.

  • Oh my gosh, that was one of my favorite things ever! I used to go every Saturday afternoon for years when I was younger. I love rollerskating. I have only been a couple of times since I have been an adult but there is one near us and I want to go really bad. Maybe I will do it as a girls night out, that would be so fun. :)

  • Yes, that was so much fun, we used to go to Greenville, Illinois to rollerskate. Everytime now that I hear " I love Rock and Roll" by Joan Jett, I still think back to rollerskating.....good times, good times..

  • I use to go all the time, we had to travel thirty minutes to get to one. I had the white skates with hot pink wheels, hot pink laces and the hot pink puff ball things. You couldnt tell me I wasnt cute with my roller skates and Micheal Jackson jacket lol
