Robson Square Rink, 800 Robson St.
Admission $15, skate rentals $10
(family discount code below)

Put on your red leather jacket and start up the DeLoren, because we’re going back to the 80s!  We are so excited to be partnering with Jack 96.9 for this event, seeing as how they’re the resident experts on 80s throwbacks. If that wasn’t rad enough, Jack Up the 80s host Larry will be spinning an all-vinyl 80s DJ set! Here are the details:

12-1:30pm – All Ages Family Skate
1:30-2:30pm – Roller Derby Bout
2:30-5:30pm – Adult Skate (16+): All 80s!

Skate rentals will be provided by the totally tubular Rolla Skate Club truck. If you are not bringing your own skates, we highly recommend that you reserve a pair of rentals, as sizes are limited, especially for small sizes (kids 11 to men’s 3) and large sizes (men’s 11 and up)

Admission is $15 for adults, skate rentals are $10. If you are bringing the kids, use the promo code MINIPOPS to get 25% off for families of 3 or more. PLEASE NOTE: this discount is only available for the 12-1:30pm Family Skate. IMPORTANT: all kids 12 and under MUST wear a helmet. We don’t have many kids-sized helmets, so please bring your own.

Oh you want throwbacks? We’ve got throwbacks. How about some classic, rock ’em sock ’em roller derby! Rolla Skate Club is presenting their signature brand of roller derby from 1:30-2:30pm, so stick around after the Family Skate or come early before the Adult Skate to catch the action.

For the Adult Skate at 2:30pm, get ready to Jack up the 80s with special guest DJ Larry from Jack 96.9! Those side ponytails and fluffy mullets will be rocking to the biggest hits from the Me Generation.
