If you haven’t been to Skate Ranch lately, come join us! Here’s what you might be missing:
We live in an electronic era and internet is a huge part of it. You asked and we answered “Yes!” to FREE Wi-Fi! For those parents that want to come in an relax at a table while their kids burn off some energy, or students who need to study, and anyone who needs to catch up on work, we have you covered.
Phase one of the lobby make-over is complete. Officially the walls have been changed to Golden Butter yellow, but we just call it a ray of sunshine! You can also get a feel for what the future look is at Skate Ranch. Phase two you ask? We’re installing an “In” AND an “Out” door inside the lobby!
You can never get enough new music!
Recently we ended our long-term relationship with the CD. Getting a CD once a month with, hopefully, the newest music that everyone wanted but was never on the disc, was always a letdown! Our new music system is internet based and has every genre imaginable. You want Michael Jackson for your next throw-back party? We have that. Christian music, yesterday’s country, 80’s hair band? We have that too! Gone are the days of waiting, crossing your fingers, and wishing for the hottest music to arrive. It’s updated every day!
MTV doesn’t play music videos anymore, but we do!
Who remembers when music videos were on the screen at Skate Ranch? Well, they’re back! We’ve teamed up with a program called MOM Approved. If your Mom wouldn’t approve, neither would we and that video isn’t played at Skate Ranch. Our screen is 12’ x 8’ and firmly mounted skate floor center. Come and check it out, just remember to take your eyes off the screen long enough see where you’re rolling!
2014 marks the 40th anniversary of Skate Ranch. We’ve survived all the ups and downs that touched society since 1974. So many of the current parents and grandparents we see today were our regular, weekly skaters for years after our doors opened.
Since our family purchased the Skate Ranch two years ago from James & Lola Stover, a.k.a. Granny and PaPaw, we’ve been putting together a plan for changes. We listen to our customer’s feedback and opinions, they’re the driving force behind our mission. Not every suggestion is possible, but we strive to keep Skate Ranch a family friendly environment that’s fun for everyone. Changes are scary, but bell bottoms and butterfly collars went out of style for a reason!
More changes on the way at Skate Ranch! With the help, support, and suggestions from our loyal Skate Ranch skaters and their families we will continue to roller skate in Lufkin for another 40+ years.
