Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Bar Mitzvah and Bat Mitzvah Parties ROCK at The Orbit

Becoming a Bar or Bat Mitzvah is a really special event and we’d like to help you celebrate with a meaningful and affordable party! Having a party for your friends is really what it’s all about and there’s nothing better than roller skating to bring out the fun in everyone. The owners of Orbit Skate Center understand Jewish rituals and work with you to plan the level of observance your family wants and desires.

We have the best interactive DJ’s, dancers and MC’s from Energy Productions. They know skating, games and what the your child and their friends want to hear. We invite our Bar/Bat Mitzvah Stars to put together a playlist!

  • Dancing or Skating or both, your choice
  • A professionally designed Light Show
  • Probably the largest collection of Today and Yesterday’s music
  • Games that make your event be the best!
  • Open or all-inclusive bar packages
  • Great catering options available, Kosher or Kosher Style

Just a quick note of thanks for everything you and your staff did for Max’s Bar Mitzvah. The evening went great! So much fun! And the food was better than I expected; even better than the hotel food for my daughter’s more formal Bat Mitzvah 5 years ago. – Bar Mitzvah Mom

Why pay more when it’s all right inside our doors!

Make a photo montage of your child’s life and show it on our big screen video, included in the package at no extra charge! ($175 value)

We make planning a bar or bat mitzvah party easy and affordable.

Prices vary since each party is unique and based on the number of people, set-up and clean-up, the length and time of the event and  the time of year. If your bar/bat mitzvah is during the summer, we are more flexible but we have many times available during the season if you give us enough notice.

The most popular time is Sunday evenings between 5:00pm-10:00pm. Prices for events includes all staffing for set-up and cleanup along with serving your guests and unlimited fountain drinks. Add our Party Service options to take your event to the next level. We also offer custom decoration packages to theme your celebration.

For information on Saturday nights, please see the note below.

We have catering options for your party, either Kosher Style or Strictly Kosher (Slice of Life) Check out our options!

We can accommodate big parties! Our floor is 190 feet by 100 feet solid maple.

We have a snack bar area with prep areas, warmers, cleanup and sanitation areas and have had everything from omelet stations to make your own sundae bars!

You have the option of bringing your own caterer (kosher only), balloon designer, face painter, DJ’s and get as extravagant as you wish, it’s up to you. Any outside vendors must meet with our staff beforehand and there’s a $125 fee per entertainment vendor and a $500 vendor fee if you do not choose to use our approved kosher and kosher style caterers.  Vendor fees are paid to the rink prior to the day of the event.

For a list of approved vendors that we have worked with and recommend, ask our staff when you speak to them about your event.

To start the discussion about your future event at Orbit Skate Center, fill out a reservation form or give us a call on the Private Party Hotline at 847-754-8350. Our office hours are 12pm-5pm Monday – Friday and we answer messages 3 times a day except on Sundays. Make sure to add @orbitskate.net to your email list so you don’t miss important communications!

Stages & Live Bands

If you want to have a live band or any kind of stage at the rink, make sure the company knows that they must bring carpet to put under their stage to protect the wood floor. We do have a small stage and lots of electricity at the back corner by the big Orbit sign.

We can also arrange to have any extras you need such as balloon decorations, stages, chairs and tables, inflatables, DJ’s, just about anything you can imagine, we have access to.

You can have part of the floor for skating and part for dancing. We cannot have stiletto heels out on the skating surface, they put tiny dents in the floor.

Saturday Night Parties

While we realize that Saturday nights are popular for Bar/Bat Mitzvah celebrations, the Orbit is extremely busy on Saturday nights too with regular skaters that come from out-of-state and far distances to skate every week.

Occasionally we will sacrifice a Saturday night session if a family cannot do the party any other night but it depends on the time of year. Starting costs for the entire rink on a Saturday night begin at $10,500 rental rate.
