KitsapWithKids: Ways to Spend the Winter

Remember rollerskating to Jesse's Girl, by Rick Springfield? Rollerskating backwards to "Another One Bites the Dust", by Queen? Going 'Around the World' at the local rollerskating rink? Well, it's time to relive those days...

In East Bremerton, you can do just that. Check out Skateland! If you are expecting a new, beautiful, well-lit rink, this is not the place for you. But, to go back to 1979, you need to see this place! Skateland is located on Fuson Road, just off Highway 303 across from Lowe's.

Skateland in Bremerton offers roller skating leagues, free skates, adult skates, even birthday parties. The owners often work on the premises, and the place seems to run much better when they are around. People are just happy at Skateland.

Lockers are available, and skates can be rented. There is a food stand with typical roller skating rink fare. One word of caution: the front doors are often left open, so do not leave your children unattended, especially younger children.

For an afternoon of cheap fun, Skateland is a cool place to be.
