Although we can’t guarantee that these sessions won’t be busy, our absolute best time for beginner skaters is our Saturday morning learners session. It costs $8.00 per skater with the exception of their parents who may skate for free from 11am-1pm. Those that stay after 1pm that paid $8.00 earlier are welcome to stay until 5pm at no additional charge. Parents that got in free between 11am and 1pm will be required to pay $8.00 to stay beyond 1pm and up to 5:00pm.
Beyond our Learners Session, we would recommend any of our daytime weekend hours for beginners. On Saturday’s those hours would be between 11am and 5pm. On Sunday’s our daytime hours are from 1-5pm.
While we do not offer a lesson program, our floor guards are always open to being asked for help. They will be happy to show you the basics, to give you pointers, and to help you advance your skating skills!
We accept VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, and Cash. We do not accept personal checks for payment.
Yes… Any Amount!
Yes we do. They are .50¢ and .75¢.
We do not, however if you have your own helmet, elbow pads, shin pads, or other safety equipment, you are welcome to wear it if you wish. As you will see after reading our rules/safety policy, injuries can happen while skating just as with any other sport or athletic activity, so safety gear is always an option.
While that decision is between you and your health provider, we do not recommend it!
This recommendation applies to anyone who has any physical conditions that would put them at risk if they were injured in any way while on roller skates.
For the safety of the child you may not carry one while you are wearing skates. You may, however, hold a child as long as you are seated and off your feet.
Inline skates or rollerblades are called inlines because all of the wheels are in a line, one wheel after another. Quads are the traditional style skates with 2 wheels side by side on the front of the skate and 2 side by side on the back. In lines were first invented in the 1800’s. Quads were invented later when skaters wanted to be able to do more difficult tricks on their skates.
16 laps around Jumpin’ Jupiter’s skating surface equals one mile. If you skate at any other rink, be sure to ask as the size of the skating surface varies from rink to rink.
It truly depends on the individual. Athletic ability, physical condition and motivation all play a factor. If a person wants to learn to skate the only one of these that will hold them back is lack of motivation. Athletic ability and physical condition can be improved no matter what, if a person is motivated. Having said that, for the average person just learning to skate, it takes an average of 5 to 6 lessons to move with confidence around the skating floor.
If you are renting skates, it is important to know that they do not come in half sizes but they do run a little larger than street shoes. So, if you wear a size 6 1/2 shoe, you should try a size 6 first and so on. Of course, if your first pair of skates do not fit, feel free to take them back to the skate rental counter. We will gladly exchange them for a different size. If you are buying a pair of skates, our skate sales staff can help you find the correct size, as the boots run slightly different from each manufacturer.
During our public skating sessions, non-skating grand parents/parents and their children that they take responsibility for, are the only “free” spectators. All others will be charged admission whether skating or watching. Note that on Friday Nights all paid admissions are required to wear skates at all times.
Unless a parent stays to watch, all children/teens must wear skates and pay admission.
We make every attempt to prevent this from happening, but we cannot stop them if they won’t heed our requests. If they continue on their own to leave the building/premises, we are not responsible. We recommend the child/teen stays inside until you come inside to pick them up. Except if the session has ended. It is your responsibility to be there by/before session ending time to pick them up. Once a child/teen leaves the building, they must pay in full to re-enter.
Starting at juvenile size 8 through adult size 15. If needed, we also have juvenile size plastic skates that go over the child’s shoes.
Yes, we allow all kinds of regular roller skates and inline/blade skates. We do not allow “heelie” type skates on our skating floor. We will inspect all personal skates for dirt and obvious safety concerns before allowing use.
