Kids Skate Free!

It’s the middle of summer, and while school starts soon, there’s still the question of what to do with kids now. Bringing them to FunQuest in Lynchburg for safe, clean fun in our indoor facility is a great start, but even with all our specials it can eat up the budget. That’s why we’re so proud to participate in Kids Skate Free.

When you sign your kids up for Kids Skate Free, you’ll receive a pass for them to skate for free at FunQuest once every week! Your weekly passes are good any day of the week, during the following hours:

Monday
4:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Tuesday
10:00 am – 4:00 pmkids skate free
Wednesday
12:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Thursday
12:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Friday and Saturday
12:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Sunday
12:00 om – 6:00 PM

Not only that, but every Tuesday each child who uses a Kids Skate Free pass can also play a game of laser tag or enjoy PlayQuest! Skate rental is $4 per person, if needed, and passes may not be used with parties or group events. Children need to be accompanied by a parent (non-skating parents are admitted free). Please remember that the times we accept passes are subject to change.  

Tearing kids away from video games and TV can be tricky, especially when it’s summer and the temperatures are climbing. With Kids Skate Free, parents have a great way to get kids up and moving every week, and at a truly unbeatable price.

If you have questions about this program, don’t hesitate to contact us. In the meantime, get your kids signed up and we’ll see you at FunQuest!

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.

Learn more, play more! Book a STEM field trip at FunQuest in Lynchburg.

Plan a Homeschool Outing at FunQuest!

Homeschool allows parents to give their kids individualized attention, work with their child’s special skills, and dig more deeply into the way their child learns. But no matter where a child’s classroom may be, it’s still important for kids to spend time together engaging in physical fun. Add Homeschool Skate to your curriculum this year!

Benefits of Skating for Kids

Roller-skating isn’t just fun; it’s good for you! Active play helps kids learn healthy habits and develop positive life skills. What are some benefits of roller-skating?

  1. Helps kids play away extra energy so they’re better behaved during school time.
  2. Develops social skills and team play.
  3. Keeps kids active, which improves their physical health and makes them more likely to become healthy adults.
  4. Makes kids smarter! Studies show that an hour of physical activity each day noticeably boosts kids’ performance in school.
  5. Puts a smile on their faces. Fun is important!
