Hey, everyone, this is Andy. I’m 10, had a bit of roller skating rink experience, and I’m here to tell you about 6 awesome roller rinks (a couple of which I’ve been to) that I’ve unearthed some information about. This is my first blog and with some help from my dear mom, we’ve been able to put this together. Hope you find it useful!

Where Did My Favorite Roller Rink Go?
Closures during the pandemic were hard on small businesses and roller rinks were not immune. We lost a couple of our favorites.
Wooddale Fun Zone – Permanently Closed
2122 Wooddale Dr, Woodbury
Unfortunately, Wooddale Fun Zone closed permanently in May of 2020.
Roller Garden – Closed Permanently
5622 West Lake Street, Saint Louis Park
We lost the Roller Garden in May of 2021.
Saints North Family Skate Center
1818 Gervais Court, Maplewood
We had hoped that Saints North would re-open in 2021, but it appears to have closed permanently.
