Making The Most of Your Skate Time at FunQuest

roller skatingEverything is better on roller skates, right? Our team at FunQuest Family Entertainment Center says “absolutely!” Roller skating is a great way to build endurance and get in shape. Check out some cool games to play next time you’re at the rink.


Freeze tag

Lace up your skates and have fun with friends with this classic game. One person is selected to be the “tagger.” This person goes around trying to tap their friends, while everyone else tries their best to stay away from the tagger because if they are tagged-they’re frozen!

Limbo

A classic game of limbo, on roller skates! See how low you can go on skates. Don’t touch the stick.

Relay races

Classic relay races are also fun on roller skates. Pick up speed and bring your team to victory!

4 Corners

Everyone skates until the music stops then everyone has to skate to 1 of the 4 corners of the rink. With their eyes closed, one designated person calls out a corner 1-4. If your corner is called out, you are eliminated. The game goes on until only 1 person is left standing.

These are just some of the fun games kids can play on roller skates. It’s a fun way to get the kids moving. Join us this week for Open Skate at the rink. Visit our website for session hours and admission details.

The Science of Roller-Skating

Are your kids engaging with STEM curriculum? Science, technology, engineering, and math are vital fields for kids to learn about. But more and more students—especially middle school and high school girls—are losing interest in STEM lessons. So how do you re-engage students  in a world with so much white noise? That’s where we come in.

STEM Field Trips in Lynchburg

two kids with chemistry setWe’re combining fun and education to create an incredible field trip that both kids and teachers will love. Our lessons teach kids to be creative, love learning, and look at STEM in new and innovative ways. We have lessons tailored for students of all ages, as well as STEM lessons for homeschool groups. We even have curriculum options so teachers can reinforce the lessons learned in the classroom. Choose from one of these interactive STEM lessons for kids:

  • Learn about friction, area, perimeter, and geometry in The Science of Roller-Skating
  • Get kids invested in force and friction, as well as diameter and circumference in Motion and Rink Design
  • Help kids learn about the science of sound, including beats per minute, frequency, and speed in Acoustics and Rink Design
  • Learn about lights and lighting design in Engineering Magic and Lighting

When the learning is over, it’s time for the kids to put their new knowledge to good use! Let your students experience motion, acoustic, and physical fitness with 2 hours of open skating at FunQuest after each 1 hour lesson. We’ll even throw in a few tips about staying healthy through regular skate fitness.
