When Lloyd’s Rollersports Centre closed more than six years ago, thousands of Calgarians fondly remembered birthday parties, first dates and school trips spent at the roller skating rink. But with the opening of House of Skate, Calgary’s (once again) only roller skating facility, avid skaters and bladers have a place to create new memories.

House of Skate was started by Roxy Janzen and Theresa Tucci, two local entrepreneurs behind Calgary Roller Skate, a series of roller skating pop-ups and events that took place around the city after Lloyd’s’ closure. That programming evolved into House of Skate, a permanent roller skating facility in the Alyth/Bonnybrook/Manchester neighbourhood.

Inside the new facility, House of Skate hosts open skate nights, adult nights, classes for children and adults, as well as private events. The facility also offers rentals on quad and inline skates with safety gear.

Open skate entrance fees start at $18 for adults, or $16 with a membership, which includes discounts on entrance fees and classes, access to members-only open skates, and advance tickets for events and workshops.
