17. Skating

For generations, skating of all sorts has been a popular youth pastime around the world, and here on the Grand Strand. Whether gliding around the roller skating rink to the latest hit song or defying gravity on the ramps of the local skateboard park, the Grand Strand offers a number of options. As popular options for birthday parties and youth activities, the skating centers are well maintained and professionally staffed. At the roller skating rinks, skillful DJ’s play family friendly versions of hit songs, while kids of all ages and abilities dart around the rink. Contests and crowd participation keep the good times rolling. Those seeking a break from the action can visit the arcade, or enjoy a soda or hot dog from the refreshment bar. Other attractions include Laser Tag and Mini Roller Ball, an adaptation of traditional bowling geared toward the littlest ones in your group.
