Rollerpony is Toronto's newest indoor roller skating rink and it's massive
Rollerpony is Toronto's newest destination for adults-only indoor roller skating, with a massive 34,000 square foot facility including skate rentals, a pro shop, barber shop, arcade games, and even delicious Caribbean food.
Brought to you from the same team of people behind Pursuit OCR, Rollerpony is just steps away from the indoor obstacle course's Etobicoke location in Rexdale.
From the moment you step inside the unassuming industrial building, you'll be wowed by the expansive space with colourful dancing lights, pulsating music, and the huge 20,000 square foot skating rink itself, featuring the world's largest indoor mural as the floor.
The arena focuses on quad skating for all levels, and you can rent your skates right on site provided by skate shop Retro Rollers.
Stash your personal belongings in one of their free lockers before lacing up and heading out to the rink.
For those not-so-sure footed, there's a smaller 1000 square foot mini rink to practice your moves before braving up to hit the main floor.
After working up an appetite, grab a bite from the onsite Caribbean restaurant Flava Ceen, offering classic Jamaican Patties or larger meals of jerk, fried, or BBQ chicken and rice served on Friday and Saturdays.
Want a fresh fade before showing off your skating moves? Saturday Life Barbershop is posted up right beside the rink, with two barber chairs ready for anyone in need of a hair cut.
Calling the space's design "a love letter to the culture", the owners wanted to add their own flavour to roller skating while honouring its legacy.
"Turmeric colored blocks and brightly lit features call back to Bo Kaap, Willemstad, Marrakesh and Port Au Prince, our mural featuring the Asian fantastical; all nods to the many cultures that built this city," the website reads.
The arena has a rotating line up of DJs and events you can scope out on their website. If you're looking to brush up on your skating techniques, they also offer classes for beginners.
While the rink provides skate rentals, they do not offer safety equipment like helmets or knee pads, but you're welcome to bring your own.
You must be 18 years of age and older to enter the facility. Reservations are highly recommended, which you can book online in advance.
You'll find Rollerpony at 75 Westmore Drive in Etobicoke.
