    Comment:  Age of child: 13Venue Review: Skating parties are easy and low maintenance (if most of the kids can skate). The host for our room was quite responsive- I had pizza and sandwiches that the kids preferred. The best part is that the kids can continue to skate after the 2 hour window for the room has expired so it can morph into a whole afternoon of hanging out by the picnic tables. Our party was on the last day of the season so the skates were in rough shape, Many with short laces other issues- some had the insides all cut up. Getting everyone set with wearable skates was time consuming. Best to bring your own in you can.
