With school starting and cool weather coming we get so excited for all the fall fun we have lined up at Orbit Skate Center for you, your family and friends. Roller Skating is the original social network. Besides the health benefits, endorsement by the President’s Council on Fitness and the American Heart Association, roller skating is just plain fun! With our lineup of exciting public skating sessions, classes and lessons, party packages and opportunities for our guests of all ages to interact while enjoying great food we feel that Orbit Skate Center offers the best and affordable family entertainment in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs.
If you want to learn to skate, jump into our Beginner Drop In Class on Saturdays from 12pm – 1pm each week. This class isn’t just for kids but for all ages and many families take the class together. The class fee is only $4.00 and includes rental skates. We also have a Class and Session special that gets you the Class, Skate Rental and the 1pm – 4pm public skate session for only $9.00! You will learn to skate so much faster if you practice what you learn. There’s a real sense of accomplishment when you take what you learned in the class and can skate better even after the first week! Kids love this class and we wish all the parents would take it with them.
Our After School Club is in full swing with our buses picking up at designated schools in the Palatine D15 area along with a couple private schools as well. We see amazing changes in ‘our’ kids over the school year, grades going up and for some, weight coming down and toning of all the major muscle groups. Our active program stresses non-electronic fun and games along with arts and crafts every day. Enrollment is open and we offer early care too for very affordable rates.
Sunday skating is back beginning Sunday, September 13th with our Young Family Skate from 11am-1pm and Open Public Skating from 1pm – 4pm. Major sports events are on the Galaxy Skybar’s TV’s and the Cafe is open with great menu choices at family friendly prices. I don’t know about you but last time I took my grandchildren to the movies, I was floored at not only the entry prices but the food prices as well. Besides, movies are only for a couple hours and roller skating is an entire afternoon of fun.
Once a month we try to have a special event like the Pajama Jam in September and Ladies Night in August. Upcoming events include our 2nd annual Superhero Night, Halloween Party, Mardi Gras, Michael Jackson Tribute and our spectacular New Year Eve parties geared towards the different age groups. On certain holidays we drop thousands of balloons loaded with prizes!
We hope you will sign up for Orbit Skate Center’s Monthly Newsletters and join in the fun with family and friends. Life is Great when you Skate!
