Skate on over to 8822 McCann Drive in Austin!

Where are we going today?

Skating is such a fun pastime! It's also a classic pastime - we bet your parents used to visit their local rollerskating rinks when they were your age! (Maybe you should ask to hear some stories!)

Playland Skate Center is good old fashioned skating fun, just with a few awesome modern elements to it.  Skate with your family and friends to an impressive light show, an eerie and atmospheric fog machine,  and a super cool state of the art sound system that will play a wide variety of music that the whole family will love.

Through the school holidays, spring break and Christmas break kids can stay active with their special daytime sessions perfect for those kids who just can't get enough of it! Make sure you reserve your spot!

If you find that you just love skating, and want to improve your skills a bit more, you can join their public skate lessons on Sundays (no need to reserve!).  For all ages, boy and girls, you will learn the basics of stopping, starting, skating, rolling, and turning. If you are more advanced you can give going backwards a go!

They like to remind you - if you can walk, you can skate. And it's true! Anyone can learn to skate, and anyone can be good at it! 

They hold speed skating classes every Friday night from 6pm - 7pm, perfect for beginners. If it's your first class - it's FREE! So no excuse, give it a try if you have been thinking about it!

If you want to skate more for fitness, they have Sk8 4 Fitness classes every Friday morning where you will skate, sweat and move!

Let's not forget the events they hold across the year, so keep and eye out for their fun festive sessions! 

Quick - get your skates on!

    if I owned this place I would do a lot of things differently. but I guess they are busy enough. the rink is good. the staff not so much. overall experience I would recommend it to a friend.

    Had no idea this place existed! I go to the Pluckers around the corner weekly and this place has been here the whole time (behind the Nissan dealership)! Oh goodness, it brought the child out of me! It is so much fun! The rink is in great shape considering how old this place is, the skates are also in great shape. There are walker rentals for those who are new to skating so that is nice for the little kids just learning. There are lockers to keep your items in, I believe there is a small fee. I left my shoes out though and no one took them so that...Read More

    Last sunday my 3 grandsons and I went to skateland and only 1 planned to skate. In order to enter, we had to pay $8.00 for a 4 yr old to watch for about 30 min as well as his 13 yr old brother. just to sit and be bored for 30 mins Why in the world would they charge non-skating kids with their parents to go in??????? I can see they would have to keep groups of older kids from entering without parents etc., but a 4 yr old?????

    I went roller skating for the first time in years, and I had an absolute blast. Tuesdays are adult night, so you don't have to worry about kids running around. They have a huge rink, with a little small area in the back where the unsteady can practice without fear of getting run over. I was surprised that there were so many people - I guess there's a big roller skating community in Austin (though I guess I shouldn't be surprised, since we have roller derby). Anyway, it was incredibly fun. There's plenty of parking, and $8 gets you in with basic...Read More
