Bear Creek Roller Rink FAQ

 

1)   Can I bring my own skates?

a)   Yes. We allow personal quad and inline skates to be used at our facility. However, we do not permit any Heely’s/skate shoes.

2)   Do I have to pay if I bring my own skates?

a)   Yes. Everyone must pay admission. Regular roller skate rental is always free for those who do not have their own skates, and we have inline and speed skate rentals available for an additional fee.

3)   What if I am not skating? Do I still have to pay?

a)   Yes. Everyone entering the building must pay regular admission, with the exception of parent spectators and infants.

4)   How old does my child need to be to skate?

a)   The great thing about skating is that there is no age limit! If you can walk, you can skate. However, there are always some limitations. We carry skate sizes down to a toddler’s size 8. Anything smaller would require that your child have their own skates, but they are still welcome to skate.

5)   Do you have the walkers/frames/racks/helper things (Skate Mate)?

a)   No. We do not offer Skate Mates, nor are they permitted in the building. Although a great teaching tool, we do not believe they should be used as a regular part of a child’s skating experience, as it leads to dependency and bad form. As an alternative, we do permit parents to accompany their child on the skating floor in their regular shoes.

6)   Do you offer skating lessons?

a)   Sadly, no. However, most of our floorguards are very well versed in skating, and are more than happy to give tips and pointers to beginner skaters, time permitting.

7)   How much does it cost to skate?

a)   Our prices are different for each session. Please see our Schedule page for current sessions and pricing.

8)   What forms of payment do you accept?

a)   We accept cash, as well as all major credit cards for ADMISSIONS ONLY. Once inside, our registers accept CASH ONLY. No checks, please.

9)   What if I don’t have any cash? Do you have an ATM?

a)   We do not have an ATM; however, we are able to process a cash withdrawal for you at our front ticket counter. This can be done while purchasing your admission at no additional cost, or at any time during your visit with a $20.00 minimum withdrawal and a $1.50 fee.

10)        Do you offer rain checks/refunds?

a)   Another plus of skating is that we can roll rain or shine. We do not offer any refunds.

11)        Can I drop my child off?

a)   We do allow parents to drop off children ages 12 and up. It is recommended that younger children be supervised when visiting us. Minors are not permitted to leave the facility without a parent or guardian.

12)        Can I bring my backpack in with me?

a)   We do not permit any backpacks or duffle bags to be brought into the facility. Any large bags or purses that may be brought in are subject to search both upon entry and exit of the facility.

13)        Where can I put my stuff?

a)   We have lockers available for rental. They are $0.50 every time you lock them, and are coin operated.

a)   Yes. We have a full-service snack bar open during every public session. View our menu here. Keep in mind, our registers inside are CASH ONLY.
