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.

Get some exercise, show off your speed and enjoy your favorite tunes at a local roller rink.
