Just the week before CNY, a group of us went to Wheels Roller Skating at Subang Avenue Shopping Mall..
Wheels Roller Skating Centre is a newly opened funky disco-themed skating rink ala 70′s disco style..
For those who’s not from Subang, just like me, Subang Avenue Shopping Mall is just beside Carrefour, the one next to Subang Parade..
It’s on 4th Floor, take the lift and go up straight to the skating centre..
Initially I made a mistake, thinking it’s an ice-skating rink but it turned out to be roller skates and in-line skates..
The price are pretty reasonable..
If only I’m residing in Subang or Sunway area, I would have purchased the monthly entry..It looks pretty reasonable if compared to the daily package..
But of course it will only worth it if one decided to skate every week and all..
Else the daily entrance fees are pretty good too..
If you want to save more, head over to Hahah.com.my to purchase the e-voucher worth RM25, which only costs you RM12! You save up RM13 for the daily skatings!
Just pay for the entrance fees, you can rent a pair of roller skates or blades for FREE! But make sure you remember to bring your own socks because that’s not for free..
For a start, I chose the roller blades because I thought it’s easier to balance as compared to the roller skates since I know how to ice-skate and it’s been 20-years since I last played roller skates..
But the blades here is a bit unusual because the brakes are at the front instead of the usual back-brakes..So I changed to roller skates, easier to handle..
Oh I haven’t not introduced their in-house rollers yet..Both their skates and blades have blinking LED lights installed underneath the shoes and the purpose is to blend in together with the skating centre’s ambient..
Flashy spotlights are everywhere in the skating rink..There are 2 platforms for intermediate skaters to show off their skills..
I’ve tried one, failed miserably..
Laser beams everywhere, pop and hit music in the background, definitely a fun place to hang out with a bunch of friends or a place for you to teach your loved one if he/she doesn’t know how to skate..
Talk about that, since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, bring your loved one here, do some exercise and have fun with each other with some hit songs playing on the amplifier instead of hitting the club too often.
IMHO, coming here with a bunch of friends would be more happening and fun..At least you have someone to race with, you have more people to show off to, etc etc..
Here’s a video of me skating around the rink and you can see the spotlights and laser beams flashing about the centre..
