As school holidays approach, Rollerway is again gearing up for another fun holiday.
Centre manager Ashlie Aparicio says there is nothing like seeing kids “who can barely do up their skates” learn to skate in a matter of minutes.
“It inspires me to keep training myself,” says the Australian Inline Hockey team rep.
Ashlie has skated almost since learning to walk and grew up playing inline roller hockey at the Newtown rink.
She’s the fourth generation of the 40-year-old family business.
“My great-grandfather helped my grandparents as their skate mechanic at this centre,” she says.
And now, with her nephews hitting the rink, the fifth generation is raring to go. Ashlie’s father Raul, who owns the centre, reckons skating is perfect for family fun.
“Anyone can have a go, regardless of age; from one-year-olds to their grandparents,” he says.
“Generations of people who have skated here as little kids have come back here as adults, with kids of their own.”
Rollerway even caters for birthdays; a fun, active and great value alternative to children’s parties, according to Raul.
Hundreds of kids and adults will roll up to the centre to hire roller skates and rollerblades for its holiday sessions, Ashlie says.
“I think the key is the amazing atmosphere we create – who doesn’t like music and bright lights?”
Rollerway Skate Centre is open every day over the holidays (Except Good Friday and Easter Sunday) at 6-8 Lambert Avenue, Newtown.
