Factors to Consider When Booking a Portable Skating Rink

When planning your portable roller rink party, you’ll want to keep a few key factors in mind. From space requirements to power supply and weather/floor considerations, let’s run through the major points of consideration.

  • Space: Our portable roller rink takes up the same amount of space as a standard-size rink (40x60ft or 2400 sqft). However, we also can provide for up to 7200 sqft of rink flooring! 
  •  Power Supply: Two (2) 20 amp circuits (1x for lights and 1x for sound)
  • Weather/Floor Conditions: We do not recommend placing this event on the grass. We require a hard, flat floor to keep the surface even for the safety of the participants. For indoor hosting, a plastic tarp will be laid out to protect your flooring. If you’re planning on hosting outdoors, keep an eye on the local weather conditions and forecast. 

Unleash Your Creativity: Choose a Theme or Run a Competition For Your Roller Rink!

Picture this: neon lights shimmering off sequined costumes, the rhythmic roll of skates blending with 80s pop classics, and students laughing as they groove and glide around the rink. That’s the power of a theme in action!

Incorporating a theme with your portable roller skating rink isn’t just fun! It’s a chance to create a whole new world within your college event. A theme can turn the rink into a time machine, taking attendees back to the retro eras of sock hops and disco fever, or it can transform it into a futuristic roller derby. The possibilities are as boundless as your imagination!

Planning themed events can seem daunting, but the payoff is absolutely worth it. Themes give students something to rally around. They become more than just attendees—they transform into active participants, adding to the event’s atmosphere with their themed costumes and enthusiastic involvement.

No need to stop with a theme either, why not incorporate some lighthearted competition to drive even more engagement? You could do something like the best dance moves on roller skates to complement your theme! 

Drum Up the Excitement: How to Promote Your Exciting Skating Event

Picture the buzz of anticipation, the flurry of social media posts, the chatter across campus – all building up to the main event. Yes, we’re talking about the thrilling journey of promoting your roller skating event! You don’t want to just get the word out, you want to build a wave of excitement and student engagement leading up to the day of your fun college event! 

Effective promotion can turn your event from just another date on the calendar into the must-attend spectacle of the semester. One way you can start is by unveiling your event on social media. You could do a tantalizing teaser of the rink setup, a sneak peek of the cool prizes lined up for contests, or maybe even a fun countdown to ramp up the anticipation! Find out the music your student body wants to listen to while dancing and skating around. Ask about their favorite memories. Transform your engaging student event into the kickoff spectacle for your semester this orientation!
