When You'll Get Your Free Roller Skating Passes
Every Monday, you'll get the free skating passes emailed to you. These are the passes you can print off and use the next week at your local roller rink.
Look for an email from firstname.lastname@example.org. You might have to check your spam folder if you haven't received the email by the time you think you should have.
Keep in mind that you don't have to print the pass right there from your email. You can always access your account to find and print your passes.
Limits to be Aware Of
Be sure to check for restrictions that vary from rink to rink. You can do this by visiting the link to your local roller skating rink.
Through your local roller rink, you'll be able to find the age range for who receives the free passes, if skate rentals will cost you extra, and if you can use the free passes for a group rate or birthday party. Pay close attention to those details so that you know what to expect when you arrive.
Some roller rinks only accept the passes on certain days and at certain times, so be sure to check that information on your local roller rink page.
Adults need to be present with the children using the free passes, so they can't just be dropped off and left at the roller rink.
