Skate Castle Reviews & Ratings
I used to come here when I was younger and I loved it. I have since then moved out of town and when I came back to visit I was so excited to stop by again. Unfortunately I was super disappointed. The staff was very rude and the place is full of little teenagers who were not very kind. I was skating next to the nine year old I brought with me and when he fell I stopped to help him up, immediately we were yelled at for stopping and threatened to be kicked out. Which I understand for safety reasons you don’t want people stopped but the whole reason he fell was because a kid flew past him and knocked him over. Also when I was walking out, not even on the rink a kid nearly knocked me over. No one is watching them, or asking them to slow down and watch for people. I was just very frustrated and left feeling like a really wasted my money. If you have little ones or aren’t an expert skater maybe find a different place.
This place is satisfying. It just needs a bit of a better arcade selection. Also some things weren't perfect, but the rest is good enough to go. They also got lazer-tag. But I have not tried it yet. So I will go for it next visit. And hope it will be pretty fun like 10 years ago, from another lazer tag place that long closed down.
It’s hard to watch a place I enjoyed as a kid become what it is today. I don’t know where to start. The floor has not been refinished for some time. I have visited several times in the last few years and have never seen a shine on it. On top of that it is covered in dust. Very little cleaning done. A decision was made to remove the water fountain and you will now be charged $100 for tap water. Absolutely ridiculous. Don’t even attempt to purchase any food items as I received my order of “nachos” on a paper plate. If we are trying to be as unprofessional as possible as a business, nailed it. And as petty as it sounds the music is terrible. Even the kids think it’s a little ridiculous to skate to luke Bryan. I miss the 90’s when this place was really nice. I get up here, I will not be returning.
I would give it zero stars if I could. Whoever owns this place obviously could care less about it or it’s customers. The floor is in horrible shape and the music terrible. I skated here as a kid in the 90’s and it was amazing. It’s horrible how it has fallen apart. I’ll be taking my kids somewhere else from now on.
For those of you out there that don't know what a skating center should be like....come to Funland and find out!! It's fun, it's clean and ever and over accommodating. All of the staff(from the bottom to the top(Lisa Lee) makes families of all races and creed feel instantly welcome and safe. Morgan county's finest are on scene at all times to make sure of it too. Thanks to all staff!!
