If some of your memories of May involve glittering laces, neon wheels, curls of hair, and whistles (without stepping) towards a friend, there’s a good chance your class has enjoyed a year-end party. school at the local ice rink.
And the music so important?
You knew all the words and could even sing along while sliding backwards. Ride alongside someone you love? It was one of the thrills of this exciting day.
May at first glance can bring less thrill when we are adults and not say goodbye to another year. But thrills can be felt, even the ones we loved when we were kids, if you know where to point the bumpers of your roller skates.
Oh, did we say “roller skates” over there? We did it on purpose, as Pasea Hotel & Spa created a limited-time Pacific experience for people who like to take a lap or twelve around an outdoor ice rink.
All is well until May 19, the songs are straight out of the 70s, 80s and 90s, and if you show up to the Huntington Beach Ice Rink with your own skates, you’ll save a few bucks.
But you will have more than a few minutes to enjoy the song-skating: each session lasts 90 minutes.
There are a few things to know about safety before you go (don’t forget your face cover; it’s up to you to coordinate it with the laces on your skate).
There are several theme nights coming up, with an ’80s party delivering the new-wave-y vibes on May 12 and a Fleetwood Mac skate invoking the sweet song on May 18.
And, indeed, there is a related rink hotel package, one that saves you money as you save nights. It’s called the Skate & Stay package, and you’ll get 15% off your room if you stay two nights and 20% off if you go for three.
All the details can be found here, but whether you’re plucking your hair, pulling out your favorite tubular socks, or swapping your bumpers for something rainbow or metal, it’s up to you.
It’s May, which is, for many people, prime time for those high jinks on the ice. Roll alongside the sand, roller-like, in Huntington Beach before this pop-up tidies up the decks.
