Unhealthy establishment

I never ever feel the need to write a poor review for a business. However, the condition of this place is quite concerning. When you walk into the place, the smell is overwhelming. Mildew smell. As I looked around, I noticed black mold on the walls which is unhealthy to breathe. The drop ceilings on the were practically caving in & filled with massive water stains. None of the lights work in the skating area. The ripped up shag carpet... Clearly everything in the place is original ( from the 1970's).. Old posters were cool, & it was interesting to see some vintage signs. However, this place is so run down that it is unhealthy for children. It is conveniently located & I wish it was nicer because roller skating is a great family activity. However, I cannot and will not risk my family's health for it. I'm wondering why the health code inspectors haven't yet shut this place down.

I cannot believe this place is still open. The building would probably collapse if the door was slammed too hard. There are literally a million ceiling leaks in there, it is practically a rainforest. The rental skates and carpet are probably older than the ancient wall of China. The person who runs the place is rude to the customers especially kids, AKA the core of the business. He yells at kids over the most trivial things, and I have heard him bash and belittle the employees. If nothing else this place at least needs a friendlier, more welcoming manager. Even though the place is run-down, at the very least a friendly manager would make it a more enjoyable place to go to. I cannot believe the health department actually allows the manager to have his dog in there, especially considering my friend and I are allergic to dogs. (FYI, I have found dog feces in the building.) Go to Rainbow Roller Rink instead, it is well-worth the extra drive as it is a family run business and a much more friendlier atmosphere.

The old bas**rd running this p...

The old bas**rd running this place is downright NASTY and rude. If kids are a bulk of his business, he should learn how to handle them instead of being an obnoxious jerk. The place is a total dump and should be shut down. Everything is gross and dirty and smells. AVOID THIS PLACE.....it's so unfortunate. I used to skate there all the time as a kid - I swear it's the same decor from then and doesn't look like it's been cleaned since then either.

STINKS, DIRTY, RUDE, TEAR THE PLACE DOWN!!

I know i am going to sound rude but please stay away from this dirty dive! it really is disgusting & very disappointing in so many ways. The Joe guy who takes the money is a very rude man & obviously has no value respect for people never mind NO people skills. My two boys and their friends were so upset after having a bullying incident happen that they could not get their money back and they were only there for 30 minutes & cost 6 dollars! (Bullying is to be taken very serious!!) i called expecting to talk to a someone with a little compassion for the seriousness of the incident & atleast try to help us....again JOE didnt care & really DOES NOT care. save your money and go somewhere that the people actually care about the people they accept money from. this place is VERY gross & i bet the health department is being paid off. the place even has cockroaches!! (why am i surprised?)...anyway, take care of your kids by NOT taking them to this disgusting dirty hole that should be boarded up and preferably torn down. save your money & spend it where you are worth something and appreciated and dont have to smell that horrible smell while TRYING to have a good time. =(

Disappointing and disgusting!!!

We took my son here because it's getting to be where he can no longer skate outside due to the weather. The place was filthy and stunk. Most of the lights didn't even work. They refused to give my son a cup to drink out of. MY 3 year old requested a song which they play every week and they promised him they would play it and never did. The staff argued with me. They did not have the skate sizes that we needed even though they told us on the phone they did. Terrible experience, I would never go back, and would tell anyone not to waste your time or money!

not at alll

this has to be the worst and most discusting place i have seen in a while. i dont know why parents allow their childern to be in this sort of an place. It is dirty, there are kids laying all over eachother everywhere. I have also heard of kids doing things behind the games or building. Have personaly witnessed kids fighting out side. and the large groups that walk around causing problems and smoking, and drugs. I will never allow my child to attend this place again after what i seen and heard. So be aware where you are letting your kids go and what exactly is going on. Check it out before you say ok, see for yourself what i have.

Absolutely disgusting

My child recently attended a birthday party there. It was dirty, smelly, had broken tables pitched toward the floor, food was disgusting and the carpeting looked like it hadn't been cleaned since they installed it in the 1970's. The ceiling tiles were disgusting, cracked and buckling. The entire place was held together with duct tape and had the feeling of being abandoned. We literally came home and took showers to wash the 1970's dirt and grime off of ourselves. Absolutely disgusting. If you can't keep a place up, then close it down. We'll never go back - ever.
