Interskate 91 North has been a staple of the Hampshire Mall for as long as I can remember. In elementary and middle school it was the place to have a birthday party – anyone who was anybody would have the back room reserved for the afternoon and invite all of their friends. Combined with the famous laser tag arena next door, it provided for a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon for the kids, and the many shops in the mall gave the parents something to do too. As time went on and I grew up, Interskate 91 became a great place to take girls out on a date: think dinner and a movie plus a few laps around the roller rink.
The hours are a bit odd, but when you realize the place is catered to younger kids still in grade school it makes more sense. I’ve never been to a roller rink anywhere else, but the prices never seemed too outrageous – it runs about the cost of a movie at Cinemark downstairs. Prices vary depending on the day because they run various specials throughout the week and you can rent a pair of skates or blades for about $5 if you don’t have your own pair (which they don’t charge you to use!).
Because Laser Storm is hooked up with Interskate 91, I’d suggest bringing a few extra bucks and working that in to your plans. They also have a small arcade with some pretty gnarly prizes for the kids, so bring a few quarters as well. If you’re not a great skater, don’t sweat it – it’s always someone’s first time here which means it won’t take too much work to accentuate your skills. Don’t forget to check out their official website for current information on all their daily specials!
