We all love roller skating, so here are a few interesting roller skating facts:
- Roller skating rinks are kind of like a gym (except way more fun) – Moderate roller skating burns roughly 330 calories an hour and is a comparable aerobic workout to jogging. Skating is good for your health, but you won’t be worrying about how many calories you’re burning while you are zipping around the rink to some great tunes while having a wonderful time!
- Skating rinks are much older than you might have thought – After James Plimpton improved the design of roller skates in 1863, skating rinks started popping up everywhere! This makes skating rinks nearly 150 years years old. Of course, there’s a reason they have been around so long – because they’re so much fun!
- They’ll make your party a hit! Where you are planning a birthday party or some other group event (like a corporate event or a small get-together as part of a social club), there is no way to beat a roller skating party! Since it’s impossible to be uptight while roller skating, it makes for a great ice breaker and is sure to put a smile on your guests’ faces. And with the right right music, everyone can get into it and enjoy the freedom of cruising along with your friends. Roller skating parties are a surefire hit for birthdays, team parties, and more.
