Every Tuesday between 12pm-2pm Roll R'Way opens it's doors to the toddler set and for $2.50 it's a heck of a deal. You can bring bikes, scooters, ride-on toys, I've even seen little girls pushing baby doll strollers and let the kids loose on a nice flat surface. We got Katie one of those plasma cars, that's her on it in the picture above, and it's super cool but in our hilly neighborhood it was virtually unusable, but not at Roll'R'Way! It's great, she rode that thing for almost an hour and then came home and took an awesome 2 hour nap, a benefit I had to add.
Also if you have older kids that might not want to ride or scoot around, they can use the roller skates for FREE! I saw a bunch of kids trying skating for the first time, some took to it, others (like my daughter) bailed on it almost instantly, but for FREE it was worth the try. I didn't see adult skate so if you plan on skating with your kids you might have to rent them, but your admission is free, so it's still not a bad deal. They also had the concession stand and game room open and a bouncy house in the corner which was a great distraction when the kids got frustrated, hungry or bored.
The last thing that caught my attention was that they played kids music, mostly Nickelodeon theme songs, and the kids were all singing while rolling along. It was pretty cute even if I had already heard most of those songs earlier in the morning! Around 1pm, about half-way through the skating session, they dimmed the lights and turned on the disco ball and the little ones got a taste of what it was like when we were young. (Think couples skate to the theme of Spongebob Squarepants).
