Roller Skating: Time Tested, Celebrity Approved

Roller skating is a time-tested sport. Everyone loves to roller skate; even celebrities like Justin Bieber and Kim Kardashian go skating!

Recently a number of celebrities took a break from LA nightlife to attend a party at a roller rink in Los Angeles. Lauren Conrad, Lo Bosworth, Stephanie Pratt and Kim Kardashian were there. They all got into the spirit, discoing on their skates!

Bring Your Friendscute skates

If your friends tell you that roller skating is ‘lame’, have them check out the celebs on wheels…or maybe pop in a movie or two to show everybody skates, and has fun doing it, too!

DVDs to Rent

Roll Bounce: In 2005, this movie showed us a number of celebrities on skates. Rapper Bow Wow played the lead, a guy in the 70s who rules the local rink with his friends.

Rollerball: In 2002, LL Cool J, Chris Klein and Rebecca Romijn play roller skating pros, showing off some real skills on their skates.

Whip It: The 2009 movie Whip It is all about roller derby; Ellen Page and Drew Barrymore tear up the rink in this one!

IRL

In real life, a number of celebs can be found regularly at the rink. Cher has been a roller skating devotee for years, and her legs look great!

Jessica Simpson skates too, and so does Beyonce! In fact, Beyoncé actually held her 21st birthday party at a skating center in Atlanta. And both Janet Jackson and Kim Bassinger have also hosted birthday bashes while skating the night away.

Have a birthday coming up? Why not skate? Contact Miracle Skate today and reserve your party now!

Skating Into The Olympics

Depending on your generation, it’s easy to feel like roller skating has “been around forever,” but do you know just how long it’s been around? Believe it or not, the first patent for the roller skate was released in 1760(!) by John Joseph Merlin. While the idea was great, without brakes, it made it hard to steer or stop and didn’t make for the best entrance to a party. It was in 1863 when James Plimpton invented the “rocking” skate that had independent axles and allowed you to easily turn by pressing to one side of the skate. This huge improvement is what allowed rollerskating to soar in population in Europe in the 1860s and 1870s, then eventually the United States in the 1930s. The phrase “rinkomania” was used to describe the roller skating craze.

The Plimpton skate is the foundation for our modern skates and is the driving factor in what led skating to enter the sporting world. In the mid 1990s, people began playing hockey with a ball and on roller blades instead of the traditional ice skates and hockey puck. The sport became so popular it was considered for the 2012 Olympics, but didn’t quite make the cut. 
While it’s no longer called “rinkomania” nor in the Olympics, roller sports is one of the eight sports vying for one of the spots in the 2020 Olympics. As of September 2015, roller sports made it to the final five of possible additions to the 2020 Olympics. Who will be added to the 2020 Olympics will be announced during the August 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.  

Olympic RingsKeep your fingers crossed skating fans, we might be having an Olympics skating party at Miracle Skate in 2020!

How To Care For Rollerblades

Rollerblading can be a fun activity for everyone.

Whether it is for kids and adults, the activity provides both enjoyment and exercise for those who use it often.

However, lots of roller skating time sometimes leads to potential breakdowns in the equipment.

inline roller skateSo if you tend to roller skate around a lot on blades, then you need to make sure you know how to properly maintain them.

Maintenance is important when it comes to rollerblades. There are sites which provide useful tips on what to do in keeping your blades in good working order. If you like roller skating as a regularly activity, then regularly check on your equipment condition.

Keep some equipment to help you take care of the rollerblades. These can include a skate tool, light-bearing oil, a small craft brush, and bearing cleaning solution.

Use the tools to remove the wheels and boot liners. This will allow you to clean all of the major areas of the skates. Make sure you inspect them to see that there are no cracks in them. Wipe down all the areas to keep them clean. Make sure the bearings don’t have dust, pebbles, or other particles that would hamper its movement.

By using proper maintenance methods, you can enjoy many hours of roller skating with your inline skates. It may not seem easy at first, but developing good techniques and basics can easily help you on your way toward consistently rolling around streets, towns, and skate parks.

For further practice, go to a local skating rink. If you are near the Madera area, then Miracle Skate is a suitable enough rink to hone and develop your skating skills. The rink features many regular events on its calendar geared toward particular roller skating activities at discount rates.

Friday the 13th – May 2016

We have a crazy fun fact for you! Did you know that there is a real name for the fear of Friday the 13th? There is! It’s paraskevidekatriaphobia or friggatriskaidekaphobia. Lucky you, there won’t be a spelling test on either of those, and we won’t make you say them five times fast either. We will however, remind you that Friday the 13th at Miracle Skate will be all about facing your fear!

When you ask some people why they are afraid of Friday the 13th, it is simply the association with the number 13 and bad luck. However, fear is a funny thing and the mind can run wild. One of our fun traditions at Miracle Skate is to warn you that Jason is coming! Usually he dons the iconic Jason hockey mask. So, now that you know he is coming, will you face your fears?

 

Friday the 13th-May 2016Madera Fresno

Not only will our chainsaw-weilding villain be present, but we’ll also have a fun time with roller skating and dancing. And don’t forget that our Friday night sessions always include free pizza and soda! That is no different for this Friday the 13th event!

Wristband Friday

Each and every Friday we host Wristband Friday. Just because this particular Friday falls on the 13th, does not make our ability to honor Wristband Friday any less. When you come out and face your fears, make sure to get your wristband so you can come back skating on Saturday the 14th without facing any fears because your Wristband Friday wristband is good for free admission the next day!

Please contact us regarding rink rental or with any other questions that you may have regarding our special events. You can also call 559-674-7655.
