These special sessions are dedicated to toddlers. Kids 6 years old and younger will have the facility to themselves without fear of older, more experienced skaters whizzing by them on the floor.

For only $5 admission, the kids get admission to the facility, skate rental, and access to our roller skating rink (all to themselves!). And for only $8, we will include all the above plus lunch for your little one! While the kids are enjoying themselves, Moms can take a little break and can enjoy the Fun & Games Cafe while we help your little ones gain their balance on their skates.

Parents — want to join in on the fun? The same admission prices apply to you! Skate and skate rental for only $5 or get skate, skate rental and lunch for $8! Don’t want to skate or you just want to spectate only? Then admission is free for you!

Be a Great Laser Tag Player with these Tips

At Fun America at Roll On America, we believe in having fun! And we like to have fun with roller skating, playing in the arcade and even while filling up at our Fun & Games Cafe. And how could we forget? Our Zone Laser Tag is so much fun! And it’s truly fun for kids of all ages. Today, we want to cover a few tips that will make you the best Laser Tag player:

1. Know the rules zone laser tag ROA

Make sure you know the rules for playing, the rules for scoring, and the terminology. The basics are the same at most laser tag places, but pay attention to the rules of where you’re playing just in case.

2. Know the arena

Getting to know the layout of the arena will help you improve your game. If you learn the layout of the arena, you can plan strategies and find hiding places that allow you to defend your teammates as you move around the course.

3. Dress appropriately

Indoor arenas are often low-light environments. Wear dark clothing with no logos or bright colors. Whites and lighter colors will stand out in the black-light. The key is to see without being seen.

4. Don’t run

Move slowly and in a crouched position so that you don’t draw attention to yourself. The key is to stay hidden until the enemy is your sights. Have teammates watch your back and fire at an approaching enemy if necessary.

5. Communicate

Teamwork requires communication. Talk (quietly) to teammates or use hand signals to show which way you’re going.

Did you know? Our Zone Laser is available privately to groups, churches, schools or businesses for $300.00 for 2 hours.

So book a laser tag birthday party now to celebrate your special day or plan an awesome corporate outing at Fun America at Roll On America!

Health Benefits to Roller Skating

Did you know that roller skating has been one of America’s favorite pastimes? It’s true! It also provides you and your family with an excellent cardio workout. There are many health benefits that are included that you probably didn’t know you were getting from your laps around the rink.

Here are just a few health benefits you get to enjoy when you visit us for an active day of skating at Fun America at Roll On America near Lancaster, MA.

1. Roller Skating is low-impact on your joints. stretching

Athletes who run or play sports know that these type of sports are very hard on your joints all too well. Roller Skating provides you with a fluid motion that keeps you from damaging your joints, helping you enjoy movement similar to running without the harsh impact.

2. Roller Skating involves multiple muscle groups.

Summer is right around the corner and everywhere we look there seems to be a tip on how to look great in your swimsuit. Skating works your legs and glutes as you power through movement, while your arms and core get a workout as you balance your body during the movement.

3. Roller Skating burns just as many calories as other aerobic exercises.

As you glide across the rink at Roll On America, you may not realize just how many calories you’re burning because of all of the fun you’re having! Music, friends, fluid motion, and more make skating seem more like relaxing than working out, but you can still burn triple digit calories easily with a few laps around the floor.

When is the last time you had a workout that you really loved? Join as at the rink to get your cardio on with some skating!
