If you’ve spent any time on Instagram Reels or Tik Tok, then you’ll know that roller skating is back in a big way. Not just a past-time for children, this exciting trend made a huge comeback in the US and now the trend is coming hurtling towards South Africa with the opening of a brand-new roller skating rink in Cape Town. Rollercade, Cape Town’s very first indoor roller skating park opened on Friday, 11 December and we couldn’t be more excited!
Located at Battery Park in the Waterfront, Rollercade Cape Town has opened its doors just in time for the festive season. The indoor skate park promises to offer loads of fun for the whole family with a roller skating rink, games arcade, pool tables, and a lounge area.
Decorated with a fun disco vibe, the indoor skating rink is sure to bring back memories of a by-gone era for more mature ‘kidults’ while littles ones can learn to love a whole new pastime with this fun new addition to the Mother City.
The indoor venue promises to offer hours of fun for anyone who walks through the door. If you’re keen to skate you’ll have to slot into one of the 2.5hr sessions. Each session is R150 per person and includes rental of skates and safety gear. You can bring your own skates and pay just R80 to use the skating rink or pay just R40 to enter and enjoy the arcade and other facilities.
Visitors to Rollercade can enjoy skating in three main sessions and two extra slots, beginning from 10:00 and ending at 18:30 on weekdays and 21:30 on Fridays and Saturdays. After every session, the room and items are sanitized. Visitors to the roller rink are required to wear a mask and socks throughout their skating experience.
Daily session times are as follows: 10:00 to 12:30 | 13:00 to 15:30 | 16:00 to 18:30 | Fridays and Saturdays only, 19:00 to 21:30.
