It’s the winter, but the holiday season is over. We still have a lot of cold days left, and maybe your house is starting to feel a little small. It can be tough to find fun things to do with your family when outdoor activities aren’t really an option. Why not try a fun day out roller skating at Big Wheel?
Where and When
You can find Big Wheel at 3226 North Fifth Street, East Stroudsburg. Monday through Thursday, you can skate from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. On Fridays there’s a 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. session and a 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. session. On Saturdays the rink is available from noon to 6 p.m. and then again from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. These are great times to skate as a family or work on your roller skating skills.
There’s plenty of special events going on at Big Wheel, too. With a before and after school program, kids can skate out their extra energy. There is free busing to and from School from the Stroudsburg Area School District.
For younger kids, there’s a Tiny Tots preschool program. Parents can bring kids 5 and under on Fridays from noon to 2 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
Big Wheel even has birthday party packages on weekends. Check out their website for more information.
For those who want to improve their skating skills, lessons are available. Just call ahead to schedule them. A 30-minute lesson is $10, and that includes renting your skates and a drink. You’ll be skating circles around your friends in no time!
During the winter and spring, school-aged kids can sign up for youth roller hockey. Each session includes four Sundays of hockey playing. Don’t worry. Adults don’t have to miss out on all the fun. The adult roller hockey league plays on Sundays from 6:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
