Making The Most Of Your Time At The Rink

Skating Rink at Roller Cave

Everything is better on roller skates, right? Our team at Roller Cave says “absolutely!” Roller skating is a great way to build endurance and get in shape. Check out some cool games to play next time you’re at the rink.

Freeze tag

Lace up your skates and have fun with friends with this classic game. One person is selected to be the “tagger.” This person goes around trying to tap their friends, while everyone else tries their best to stay away from the tagger because if they are tagged-they’re frozen!


A classic game of limbo, on roller skates! See how low you can go on skates. Don’t touch the stick.

Relay races

Classic relay races are also fun on roller skates. Pick up speed and bring your team to victory!

4 Corners

Everyone skates until the music stops then everyone has to skate to 1 of the 4 corners of the rink. With their eyes closed, one designated person calls out a corner 1-4. If your corner is called out, you are eliminated. The game goes on until only 1 person is left standing.

These are just some of the fun games kids can play on roller skates. It’s a fun way to get the kids moving. Join us this week for Open Skate at the rink. Visit our website for session hours and admission details.

Keeping The Kiddos Safe in Public

holding hands

At Roller Cave, we take pride in providing a clean, fun and safe environment for children, but not everyone wants to protect your children like we do. So, we’ve put together a short list of tips that’ll help with keeping your children safe in public places with large crowds.

Hand their hand. – Don’t walk ahead of small children that can not keep up. Remember, if only takes a second for a toddler to wander away.

Stranger danger. – Make sure your children know not to walk away with strangers. This will cut down on the chances of your child walking away with someone they don’t know.

Make sure they know who they are. – When your child is old enough to understand, practice their full name, address and phone number with them to ensure that if they ever needed help that they could be helped.

Keep an eye on them. – Never leave a child unsupervised in a public place. This includes play areas and rolling around the rink, even if they’re with other children. This is a recipe for disaster.

Have a family safe spot. – In crowded places, it’s a good idea to have a designated safe place to gather if the family gets separated. Make sure your kiddo knows where the safe place is and to go there if they get lost.

Following these steps will help with keeping your children safe while having fun at our facility and later in life.For more information about Roller Cave, visit our website or give us a call at 317-898-1817. Have you made memories at Roller Cave?

The Company That Skates Together, Stays Together

Shouldn’t your team know they’re appreciated? Your business is a fine-tuned machine. But the heart of your company isn’t revenue reports or client spreadsheets, but the employees who work tirelessly to make your company successful. Build company culture with a corporate outing at Roller Cave.

The Importance of Team Building

It’s important for companies to take a break from work and reconnect with their team. Team building improves corporate culture, relieves office stress, and increases team productivity. Team building events shouldn’t be all about stuffy office parties or awkward trust exercises, but opportunities for your employees to engage and have fun.

  • happy employeesTeam building increases morale
  • It cultivates employee relationships
  • It helps employees feel heard by their managers and company leaders
  • Corporate events increase office productivity
  • They help develop more effective roles in the workplace
  • They open the lines of communication
  • They strengthen unity and develop a vital office culture

At Roller Cave, you can tailor your team outing to your company’s needs. Plan a holiday office party, minus the clean up, or put a new twist on a team luncheon. Foster a spirit of teamwork and competition with skate races and games, or invite everyone’s families and get to know your team in a more casual setting. We even have opportunities for BYOB adult parties if you need a venue for an after-hours work event. A Roller Cave event includes:

  • A large skating surface, which can be converted into a banquet area or dance floor
  • Dynamic sound and lighting systems with video projection screens and monitors
  • A full service snack bar
  • Availability for outside caterers

Don’t wait to show the team you care. Book a corporate party at Roller Cave today!

Who Says New Year’s Resolutions Have to Be Hard?

Are you ready to dive into 2017? Make this year better than ever before! Do you want to get healthier, spend more time together as a family, or master a new skill? Roller Cave can help your family meet their New Year’s resolutions.

New Year’s Resolutions at Roller Cave

  • Get active. Is that gym membership already gathering dust? The trouble with resolutions like “be healthier this year” or “lose weight” is that they’re boring. Instead of forcing yourself to do something you hate, find an activity you enjoy. Roller-skating burns 600 calories and hour. Who knew? And spending an hour in the batting cages is a great arm workout. Fitness is a breeze at Roller Cave.
  • Spend time together. You want to spend more time together, but your teenager hates the outdoors, your younger kids get bored in movies, and you and your spouse want nothing more than for the kids to get off the couch and stop playing video games. Go roller-skating! Skating is great for all ages, from toddlers to grandparents. And with so many opportunities for open skating each week, you can work family fun into everyone’s schedules.
  • Practice a skill. Do you want to become a roller derby champ? Is your child’s goal to make the baseball team this year? Whatever your goals for the year, Roller Cave can help. We have skating lessons, winter batting cage specials, and plenty of opportunities to practice. Master a new skill (or improve at an old one) at Roller Cave this year!

What We’re Thankful For

Winding down the clock on 2016, and we can’t believe it’s already time for Thanksgiving. We know it gets busy this time of year with friends and family visiting, parties and gift shopping, so we wanted to sit down early and write down what we’re thankful for.

What We're Thankful For

Our Friends and Family

Ok, we know this one is a given and everyone always says it, but we truly are thankful for them. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you! We also have to be thankful for FaceTime, Skype, and other video calling services. They really have changed the way we connect with those we love who are spread throughout the country and the world.

The Best Food

You’ve probably heard us talking about this before, but this really is the best time of year for food! Not only that, we’re thankful that we’re able to put food on the table whenever we need to for our family. We can’t wait to start serving Thanksgiving turkey, mashed potatoes, and of course pumpkin pie.

Our Community

We’ve called Indianapolis home for many years, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. We’ll never take the support you’ve shown us through the years for granted. Whether it be through an online review, word of mouth, or celebrating your birthdays with us. We’ll always do whatever it takes to see all of you smile. Thanks for being the best city to live in, Indianapolis!

We hope you can also find the time this week to sit down and think about all you have to be thankful for. We now there’s a lot we tend to take for granted every day, and we bet you can think of a few very quickly!

Funny Mummy Weekend

Halloween week is here! Yes, we know it’s officially next Monday, but we’re calling it this week because the weekend right before Halloween can be the best weekend. Trick-or-treating, candy, cooler weather — it’s the perfect combination. That’s why we’re hosting a party all weekend! Funny Mummy Weekend begins this Friday the 28th!

Candy Bowl

What’s going on at Funny Mummy weekend? That’s a great question. Here’s a quick rundown for you.

  • Lots of candy — you won’t be disappointed
  • Mummy Wrap Contest — wrap your friends up and see if you can be the best mummy in the rink!
  • Halloween Music for our skaters
  • Costume Contests — we’ll have a costume contest every day! Maybe we’ll see some MLB costumes and a bat from our Dream Bat Giveaway!
    • Friday at 8:30pm
    • Saturday at 2:00pm, 5:30pm and 8:30pm
    • Sunday at 2:00pm and 5:00pm

We hope you’ll be able to join us before you head out on Halloween night to show off costumes to all your neighbors. Just like we’re all about safety at the Roller Cave, we also wanted to share a few quick tips for staying safe on Halloween night, too!

Choose Costume Props Carefully

A costume is only as good as its prop, we all know this. Costume props are best for costume contests, see above. But make sure your props are safe for walking around the neighborhood with. A pirate with a long sword could trip and fall if it’s swinging around, or a fairy with big wings could get tangled up if they’re too big!

Plan Ahead

An easy way to stay safe is to plan your trick-or-treating route before you leave the house. This way you can avoid big intersections, stay close to home, and have a good timetable for when you’ll be back!

Have a great Halloween!
