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 Black Friday Deal You’ve Been Waiting For!

When Exercise Is Fun

Since the early 1900’s, roller skating has been an enjoyable form of rsa-infographicfamily entertainment and exercise.  As a cardio workout that doesn’t put stress on your joints, it’s attractive to those who practice physical fitness. Aside from accidents that happen at high speeds, skating is fairly safe and provides several health benefits. FunQuest Family Entertainment Center can help you achieve and perhaps even increase your fitness goals.

Use a Variety of Muscles

Roller skating utilizes different parts of your body. Not only do your legs getting a workout, your arms are used to maintain your balance. Skating particularly builds strength in the lower body — building strength in your ankles, feet, knees, legs, hips and thighs.  Skating also engages the abdomen, hamstrings and muscles in the lower back.

An Aerobic Workout

The calories burned from roller skating, just like aerobics, are in the triple digits. Even at a moderate speed, skating can rival the effects of an aerobic workout. The combination of diet and skating, just a few hours each week, will encourage weight loss.

Healthy for the Heart

Roller skating is considered to be an effective aerobic exercise by the American Heart Association. Skating at moderate speeds can increase your heart rate to levels that improve blood flow and aid in weight loss.

Lifts Your Mood

One of the most noticeable benefits of roller skating is its ability to lift your mood. The combination of motion and listening to music helps raise energy and relieves depression. Feeling much like a carnival ride, skating provides a rush of adrenaline. Skating at a roller rink requires staying alert — it’s good exercise for the brain, too.

Alternative to Running

Roller skating is an attractive alternative to running — it doesn’t place stress on your joints. Which activity is more fun — burning 200 calories skating for half an hour or running for 10 minutes?

Roller Skating and The Brain

The cold weather, new information, and long wait until fall break are enough to dishearten even the most studious learner. But have no fear! FunQuest is here to rev up Lynchburg kids for a whole school year of learning. brain food

Roller-Skating and the Brain

Did you know that study breaks—especially ones that involve physical activity—make you smarter? The relaxation allows kids’ brains to soak up the knowledge they’ve studied, while the exercise boosts healthy chemicals in the brain that increase cognitive function. Kids who are active do better on tests, spend more time on schoolwork, and learn better own their own. Roller skating is also an excellent way to reward hardworking kids. While they spend the their after school time zipping around to their favorite music, laughing with their friends, and spending quality time with parents and siblings, they’re also improving their physical and mental health.

FunQuest and Education

There’s a world of knowledge out there, and it’s fascinating! We’re committed to helping kids learn and grow, whether they’re in school, skating with their families, or attending a FunQuest Birthday Parties and STEM Field Trips. Our helpful staff is full of interesting, unusual facts about the science and history of roller-skating. We help kids from local schools learn about Newton’s Laws, inertia and velocity, cardiovascular health, and which muscles they’re engaging when they strap on a pair of roller-skates. We’re happy to share the wealth of knowledge with your kids. Stop by for our skating sessions or plan an educational field trip with your school. The practical application of their new cardio knowledge will help kids retain the information . . . and call the lesson fun!

Beat the school stress and reboot your kids’ brains at FunQuest!
