Kids Can Roller Skate For Free in South Jersey

Posted on: June 24th, 2019 by

Originally published in 2013. This article about where kids can roller skate for free in South Jersey is updated every year.

Did you know there are roller skating rinks in New Jersey that offer FREE roller skating for kids?

You might think roller skating had its time in the sun and isn’t popular with the kids anymore, but you’d be wrong. There might be a lot of falling and stumbling and getting stuck in the middle of the rink at first, but once kids get the hang of it it’s a fun time! Get some exercise, show off your speed and enjoy your favorite tunes at a local roller rink.

Kids Skate Free has a complete listing of where and when kids can skate for free! Unfortunately right now there appears to be only 1 location in all of New Jersey that offers free roller skating. The other 3, that were in South Jersey, have all gone out of business. And unfortunately, there have not been any participating rinks in North Jersey for a very long time.

We’ve also added some events where kids can roller skate for free in New Jersey, so make sure to read to the end.

Save on roller skating rental fees by using our Amazon links to buy your kids roller skates or even roller skates for moms and dads. (We make a small commission off of purchases made on Amazon using our link.)
