Go back in time at a roller skating rink with an old school feel that’s kept the party going for more than 40 years at the Dairy Ashford Roller Rink.

Located in the Energy Corridor off of Dairy Ashford Road, this namesake rink is the perfect place to get nostalgic on wheels, whether it be while enjoying recreation skating or one of the rink’s theme parties, adult skate nights with DJs, holiday events and more.

Opened originally in 1974, today the family-owned throwback offers both roller skates and inline blades for all ages, a top-of-the-line sound/light system with more than 3000 songs and 25 strobe lights, a fully stocked snack bar, and of course, a large 65×180-foot wood floor to get your skate on.

If music is a big seller for you, on any given night visitors can expect to hear the best of current top 40 hits, plenty dance floor favorites from the ’60s to ’80s, and even tribute nights to late greats like Prince and David Bowie.

Planning a birthday or event? Whether for kids, teens or adults, the long-running family entertainment center is a great space to throw an affordable private party with its large dining/seating area, fully stocked snack bar with refreshments and hot meals, and even big screen tv’s for viewing pleasure.
