Happy Hour Lands at Eastbournes Biggest Roller Disco!

Each Saturday we’ve noticed a distinct “change of use” of our roller disco as the session progresses and its led a few of you to ask for an official ruling on something that’s happening naturally in any case…

So here’s to the start of “Happy Hour” – the families start to pack up towards 5pm, but the teenagers and the young at heart love to stretch their legs and have “the need for speed”.

If you roll in from 4:45pm, any Saturday you’ll get charged the Happy Hour price of £2 … and you can expect a huge floor, less crowded with families and predominantly housing faster more able skaters.

Spread the word and enjoy!

Why you’ll have the best TIME at Eastbournes MOST SPACIOUS Roller Disco

Eastbourne’s MOST SPACIOUS Roller Disco will better suite busy families weekend schedules with a more flexible opening time than our Hampden Park Disco. Its main Saturday Session will be from 2pm to 6pm. A Whopping 4 hours every week! We’re pretty sure this will give everyone time to eat and relax, before the fun starts on our Huge floor!

It’s Massive, Bright and Airy, very contrasting to our Hampden Park Venue. Mix in the fact that it’s 3 times the size, twice the duration and uniquely a “NON-STOP Roller Disco”, so you never need to leave the floor because a games on… and you get some pretty terrific value!

That’s right… No need to sit out for a good amount of the time, if you don’t like games. No interruption to your skating regardless of what’s on because of the size of the floor allows a smooth separation of activities. Plenty of room for 300+ skaters in our light; airy; ultra venue 🙂

That said, there will be plenty of games to suite all ages and abilities right through the sessions. We’ll be starting with Saturdays and expanding to other days (and nights) as soon as we can 🙂

Exact entry costs are still being finalised but safe to say, it will be the biggest, most spacious roller disco in town and very competitively priced. Families will additionally benefit from the super low cost of refreshments.

Please help the launch of this fabulous venue, by spreading the word as far as possible. Invite all your friends to the opening event. So even if you normally have other things set for Saturday afternoon February 6th – pop in on your way and see what all the fuss is about. Who knows, you might not want to leave!

It’s going to be very convenient as there is a huge free car park near by and excellent to the door bus service, secure cycle racks  – or you could just skate in 🙂

We’ll be running a facebook photo competition during the first Two weeks sessions – just tag yourself in all the photo’s you can find yourself in… Everyone that’s tagged in the photo with the most likes will have FREE entry for the rest of the month!

Watch out for our next post confirming a Tiny entry fee, for a BIG venue… coming soon!

Six things you’ll be able to find at Eastbourne’s MOST SPACIOUS Roller Disco

The Excitement and buzz is certainly building about Eastbourne’s Largest skate and Roller Disco Venue, the place where Hampden Park Roller Disco is moving too…

We’ve already covered needing more skate guards (and thanks for the response on that one people – but we could do with even more!) and we also covered some size comparisons with other indoor facilities and the great family friendly refreshments prices.

Here’s Six featured areas you can expect to find in the main arena of Eastbourne’s Most Spacious Roller Disco 🙂

Remember its an absolutely huge, marvellous quality, consistent, grippy and even floor. So there’s plenty of space to allocate to each fantastic feature, without ever feeling cramped. 300 skaters at once will still feel “roomy 🙂

ERD Booth Designs GamesERD Booth Designs Usual

  1. Temporary Games area in front of the DJ and Skate hire areas. This will be temporarily “coned out” just for games and will usually be about 30+ * 15+ metres depending on the game and its popularity. (So about the size of our old halls at Hampden Park, and that’s not even close to half the space we have!)
  2. Towards the far top left corner we’ll have plenty of space for slalom cones. We want to keep this away from the centre areas, because they’ll be in use by…
  3. Centre stage of the whole floor, is the Jam, Free skate dance, practise and teaching zones.
  4. Along the left side of the halls are a variety of benches and 2 separately zoned sofa lounge booths, for tired skaters and comfortable parents.
  5. The Skate Hire and DJ stage area is next to the entrance, to control the floor and right next to the …
  6. Skate Guard Pit… because the people that make it all happen need a rest too!

Now of course there’s plenty more at the venue, like separate party rooms, wall and ceiling mounted lighting, changing rooms and showers, lockers for valuables, separate customer lounges with refreshments etc.

Keep spreading the word skaters! We are really keen to give everyone possible the chance to experience this amazing skating experience, so we will shortly be announcing some super family friendly prices, to make sure everyone can enjoy it!
