Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips

Can you believe it’s almost time to go trick-or-treating again? We hope you have found a costume idea and maybe you’ve already made it! We can’t wait to see what everyone brings to our Halloween parties this year! Speaking of which, we’ll be open on Halloween until 9pm this year and hope to see you there. Just like we stress safety at Miracle Skate, our team wanted to offer a few Halloween safety tips for your night of trick-or-treating.

Trick-or-treating safety tips

Lose the Mask

While masks can complete a costume, they’re also known to hinder your children’s vision. It’s already going to be dark out, do try to see if facepaint can stand in in place of a mask. That said, if a mask is a necessity, don’t ruin your child’s night, but keep an extra close watch as they walk door to door.

Flexible Props

Plastic swords, lightsabers, and shields all look great, but they’re also more likely to get caught on a bush or trip you up on a sidewalk. Try looking for props that are made of flexible material and still look the part.

Plan a Route

Last but not least, before you and your kids hit the neighborhood, print out a map and highlight the route you’re going to take. This way you can avoid any busy intersection and get an idea for how long you’ll be out. (So you can plan to be back and head to Miracle Skate!)

Falling in Love with Skating

Mini pumpkinsPumpkin lattes. Pumpkin pies. Pumpkin cheesecake. Sweaters. Jackets. Scarves. It’s officially Fall!

We love fall – the crisp air and finally getting to pull out our favorite jackets and boots. What else is there to love about fall? How about falling in love with a new past time or sport – roller skating! While fall is well known as the season of football, it’s also a great season to join us at Miracle Skate to try out your skills at the skating rink.

Things to Love About Skating

  1. It’s great exercise. You can burn almost 600 calories while skating for just one hour! Not only that, but roller skating has also been endorsed by the American Heart Association as a heart healthy activity.
  2. It’s the original social network. Roller skating started out as the center of the social scene. It’s where people came together to spend an afternoon together joking, playing, and simply enjoying the time spent in an engaging activity. Put down the screens and try it out for yourself.
  3. It’s a year round sport. Fall is a great time to learn to roller skate – but roller skating is a great sport year round! It’s one of our favorite things about skating: no matter the weather, the season, or the time of day, it’s a great time to go roller skating.
  4. Everyone can skate. Young or old. Short or tall. Everyone can be a great roller skater. All it takes is a little practice and you’ll be whizzing around the facility in no time.

It’s fall – but don’t fall!

You don’t have to worry about learning to fall while learning to skate this fall (pun intended) because we have handy skate mates that give you the extra help you need to be confident your first time out on the skating floor.

Join us at Miracle Skate in Madera for a great night skating with friends and family!

Tomorrow’s the Day!

 

We don’t know about you, but we think we’ve been close for far too long. The fair was super fun, but now we’re stuffed with elephant ears and turkey legs and it’s time to get back to the rink.

Back to our normal hours

Resuming tomorrow, Friday 9/15/16 we will resume our regular summer hours. However, please watch our hours pages as they are about to change for the fall, but don’t worry if you forget. We’ll make plenty of announcements on our social media accounts.

Friday Night Jam

hello friday!We hope to see you tomorrow for our Friday Night Jam! We’ll have our awesome all you can eat and drink pizza and soda, wristband special (save your wristband Friday and get FREE admission Saturday) and free glo sticks for the first 50 entrees!

We’re doing our best to keep our lips sealed but we will say this: we’re planning some great events for October! You all know about our Halloween events but we got even more coming up. Stay tuned for more information!

STEM Lessons Now at Miracle Skate!

We’re excited, too! Whether you’re a teacher looking for a fun, engaging field trip or a parent searching for a way to teach your children via practical application, this is for you!

STEM 1What is STEM.?

The STEM program is a unique, engaging way that gets kids excited about learning. When kids come for a STEM field trip they learn that the concepts of science, technology, engineering and math are found in everyday experiences -even favorites such as roller skating!

We now have a professional STEM educator who will be teaching visiting students about how STEM principles are found in everyday life. On of our favorite parts about STEM is that each lesson focuses on hands on activities to not just teach the concepts, but demonstrate them on a level they understand. We have customized lessons that are based on teacher’s needs to directly relate back to the classroom. After their 1 hour STEM lesson, the students get to roll around the rink for physical fitness and to experience what they just learned. Lunch is available for an additional cost upon request.

The lessons are designed to show students that STEM is fun, excited and a new favorite way to learn.

How many lessons are there?

There are 5 lessons to choose from:STEM

  1. The Science of Roller Skating
  2. Motion & Rink Design
  3. Music, Math & Roller Skating
  4. Super Sound! Acoustics & Rink Design
  5. Engineering Magic and Lighting

How to set up a STEM field trip:

Simple give us a call at  559-674-7655 or fill out Contact Form and we’ll get back to you within 24 hours. It’s that easy!

It’s Time For The Fair Again!

It is nearly time for the Madera Fair to come back to the Madera county fairgrounds. While we’re excited for all the fun (and delicious food) the fair brings, as the fairgrounds are home to Miracle Skate, when the fair comes to town, we close our doors -temporarily. Hey, we want to ride the rides, too!Ferris Wheel

We will be closed Monday, August 22nd – Thursday, September 15th, and will re-open Friday the 16th.

As with each year, the fair is sure to be packed full with fun, adventure and all the fried foods you never knew you needed. From the midway rides, to the concert series – Brett Michaels and 38 Special are this year’s headliners! To the local sponsors and entertainment, you won’t want to miss this annual community fall event!

While we won’t be open during the fair, we’ll certainly be there. Come stop by our booth and say hi! We’ll be there passing out flyers and FREE passes. It’s ok, our feelings won’t be hurt if you only stop by for the passes 🙂

Be sure to follow our Facebook and check up on our blog post as we have some exciting announcements coming up for educators and students alike. We’ll re-open on Friday, September 16th ready to skate and have fun with pizza hot and ready and drinks ready to go.

Why Sign Up for Kids Skate Free?

There used to be a time when parents flashed the flood lights or rang a school bell to get their kids to go inside for dinner, now you have to disconnect the wifi, “lose the remotes” and refuse to reheat dinner for them. With all the technology around us, it’s hard to get them active and exercising these days. Here at Miracle Skate, we believe exercise should be fun. We want to encourage kids to unplug and unwind with friends and family here at the rink.

Miracle Skate is proud to say that we are part of a program called Kids Skate Free. This program is designed to promote kids to be active and exercise in a way that excites them by offering free passes to participating skating rinks! Once you sign up, each child (up to four per family) will receive two passes to use each week here at Miracle Skate. This means that if they own their own KidsSkateFree.comskates, their skating day is totally free! But don’t worry if you don’t have your own skates, we have both quads and inline (rollerblades) available to rent during your time with us. This program is offered to kids 12 and under, but don’t let that stop you from having a family fun outing! Not sure what days they can be use? We make it simple to find out -simply check out our hours and location page.

Roller skating is a fun way to get exercise, burn calories, and improve balance and flexibility. Its easy and fun to learn at every age. We hope to see you and your family here at Miracle Skate in Madera, CA soon, so sign up for your free skate passes today!
