Why You Should Get Your Kids In Skating

Children growing up today have a higher potential to be less active than those in previous generations. Historically, children were a valuable resource to help their family survive. In the 19th and 20th centuries, many children worked on farms or in factories to help support the family. After World War II, there was a trend that moved away from child labor. This led to healthier, happier children but over time it also led to a higher risk of obesity.Skate Mate

Roller skating is a way for children to stay active and get exercise while still having fun! Children as young as three years old can enjoy the health benefits of roller skating, while improving balance, coordination, and self-esteem. At Skate & Fun Zone, in Manassas, VA, we fully endorse the idea of children starting physical activity young, and have several ways to help with that.

We are proud to be a part of the Kids Skate Free Program, a national program that endorses exercise through roller skating. Our skating rink offers public skate days, lessons, a cafe, and an overall welcoming atmosphere. For our littlest skaters, we offer skate mates, a plastic apparatus to help them learn, while keeping their balance! Your child will feel comfortable and have a fun time learning all of the nuances of roller skating; it may even remind you of when you used to skate with your buddies. So, come by today!

We are located at: 7878 Sudley Rd. in Manassas, VA 20109. See you soon!

Olaf is the friendliest, and funniest snowman you will ever meet, and  is the friend of the merry band of misfits that is Hans, Kristoff,  Anna, and Sven!

With admission at only $4 per person, and skate rentals as low as $4.50, there is no possible reason NOT to come!

SkaSkate N Fun Zone Kidste N Fun Zone is the perfect host place for Olaf! He will love the skate lessons we offer, and the gift cards, as well as our extensive selection at our cafe! He can choose from two different flavors of ICEE: blue raspberry or strawberry, but knowing Olaf, who loves ICEES even more than warm hugs, he will go with both!

He will also enjoy the skating lessons, which we offer in either 8 class skate programs for only $140, or a single class for the low price of $20! What an incredible deal! Individual Classes upon request. Call Katherine 703-361-7465, ext 110.

He will also be ready for photo opportunities, so be sure to bring your cameras to capture last minute holiday pics of your child with Olaf! Bring your child and her friends and we will see you there!

3 Tips For Birthday Party Success

photo 1 (3)

If you are looking for the next great place to host your child’s birthday party, Skate-N-Fun Zone located in Manassas, VA is the place to go.  When planning the perfect birthday party there are many things to consider from the theme, to the cake, even the decorations.  Below are three important things to remember to ensure your child’s birthday party is one they’ll remember.

First be sure when choosing a location that there are activities at the location to keep your child and their party guests entertained for the duration of the party.  Skate-N-Fun Zone does not only have rink skating it has a laser zone for some team laser tag fun.  They also have a play zone for those 10 and under with slides, swings and bounce attractions.  This is especially helpful if young children will be accompanying any guests.

Try utilizing a party package to get the most for your money.  By choosing a party package it is easier to not only make sure everything gets done, but also helps to keep the party on theme with a lot less running around.  Skate-N-Fun Zone offers a variety of packages for a range of age groups.  All the packages involve group activities, tokens, cupcakes, food, drink and table time as well as much more.  Choose the best party to fit your theme or activates need.  The packages include so much and at a price to fit any budget.

Make sure your party is filled with fun.  There is nothing worse than a child or teen party that stagnates or becomes boring for guests.  Be sure the place and activities in the party keep the guests engaged and entertained.  Especially with young children, the more active and entertained the less likely they are to get into trouble.

So if you are looking for a new place to book your child’s birthday party that has plenty of activates for all ages, is fun and entertaining, and offers a great party for a reasonable price, contact Skate-N-Fun Zone to book your next birthday or party event.
