“Great Fun, Let Down by Staff & Decor”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

We enjoyed the roller skating itself and the rink seemed a good size to us amateurs, however the staff were quite rude and the venue was surprisingly dated considering the amount of patrons.

“Update from previous review”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

***They now accept credit / debit cards for payment at entry etc.***

Place has been refurbished quite a bit, new ceiling, better lighting, new carpets etc. so it's nice to see it's constantly improving.

“Back to the Future!”
Reviewed 16 February 2014 via mobile

We recently visited Rollerworld for a friends Birthday. It was really good to see the place busy and it has a bit of a spruce up since we were last there (still a long way to go). I imagine the amount of cash needed for a makeover would be pretty significant given the size of the place. I used to be a Rollerworld regular 25 years ago so it holds some great memories, they aren't difficult to access as it hasn't changed since then. The staff are generally pretty decent but like the place itself would benefit from a makeover. The mix of doormen and fairground ride attendants isn't the most reassuring on approach. Having said that there was a rink Marshall ?Amanda who helped my daughter up after a tumble who was lovely. The DJ was good to and kept up some good banter without forgetting that there were kids present.

After a sweaty couple of hours we had an enjoyable afternoon out and we will definitely be going again. I hope that if it can be supported the money can be put back into the venue.

“Good day out....”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

Great for reliving your youth, my daughter aged 9 loves it and has for a few years. The earlier session Saturday morning can save you a few pounds if you don't mind the early skating start! It is however about time it had a little facelift/refresh as not much has changed since my skating days a good few 20 yrs ago, more seating for grown ups would also be a bonus.....for those not participating.

“Good fun”
Reviewed 5 December 2013 via mobile

We have visited Rollerworld as a family at least 3 or 4 times now and my daughter also celebrated her 11th and 12 th birthday here, we have always found it friendly and great fun.
The only let down is that it is showing its age slightly and could do with a bit of an update, despite that I definitely would (and do) recommend the place as something different to do on a rainy weekend :)
