4 Reasons to Take Your Date Skating

birds in loveValentine’s Day should be unforgettable. That doesn’t mean spending a month’s paycheck on flowers, candy, dinner reservations, and other expensive gifts. February 14th is about honoring relationships, not just gifts and cheesy romance. What better way to say “I love you” than having fun with the person you love?

4 Reasons to Go Skating This Valentine’s Day

At Funcity Sk8, we celebrate relationships in all their stages, whether you’ve just said “I do” or “yes, I’ll go out with you!” Why is skating a great idea for a Valentine’s Day date?

  1. It’s inexpensive. Blowing your bank account doesn’t equal romance, no matter what the greeting card industry tells you. Find a way to show your significant other you love them without winding up in debt. Valentine’s Day skating is buy one, get one free in honor of all the folks feeling the love in Webster this month.
  2. It’s unusual. Don’t be one of those couples sharing a candlelit dinner with 45 other couples. We won’t rush you out the door so someone else can have your table. Sit back, relax, and skate a while with someone you love.
  3. It’s romantic. Maybe you want to recreate your first date, roller-skating with the love of your life. Maybe you never learned to skate, and your boyfriend or girlfriend has offered to teach you. Maybe you’ve been inspired by the lighthearted romance of eras past. Or maybe you just want to destroy your SO in a game of laser tag! There’s no wrong reason to take your partner roller-skating for Valentine’s Day!
  4. It’s distinctive. Five years from now, you may not remember which restaurant you went to for Valentine’s Day. You will remember laughing around the skating floor, grabbing snacks and candy from the cafe, and snapping skating selfies for Facebook.

Come to Funcity Sk8 Valentine’s Day Couples Skate on Friday, February 12th from 7-11:30pm.

Valentine’s Day

Skating and Laser Tag Greek Events

texas a&m sororityAcross Houston uni life is slowly reawakening. After a lazy (okay, diligent) summer, students migrate back to their dorms for another year of community, classes, and campus life. Students from the University of Houston, Texas Southern, Rice University, and other Houston colleges need a way to reconnect with their brothers and sisters as they welcome new pledges. And what better way to reclaim the school than with a classic Greek life event?

Plan a Greek Life Event

After the madness of classes, rush, and finalizing the fall calendar, sororities and fraternities need a chance to bond with their sisters and brothers. Book a private Funcity Sk8 event for:

  • Recruitment
  • Big brother/big sister bonding
  • Sorority/fraternity partnership events
  • Philanthropy project fundraising
  • A day of play (and building brotherhood or sisterhood)
  • Private BYOB Events at Funcity Sk8

What’s a party without refreshments? Book an adult BYOB party at Funcity Sk8 and get 2 ½ hours of skating, skate rentals, a dedicated DJ, and a cop on standby for up to 50 skaters. Bring your own cake, alcohol, and selfie sticks. No glass containers or kegs are allowed. All skaters must be 18+ with proper ID and must sign a Hold Harmless Waiver before entering.

Private Skating Parties

Don’t want to deal with the hassle of BYOB? Book a private party at Funcity and enjoy fun events like retro roller-skating, tactical laser tag, and arcade games. Make it a costume party or team up, Bigs against Littles.

Fundraising Events

Raising funds for a local, community, or international cause? Play more, save more! Book a Thursday night fundraiser at Funcity. You set the entry price, give us $3 per admit (minimum of 100 skaters), and keep the rest! It’s all play, no work, and great rewards.

Your young’uns will love bouncing around the KidzPit bounce house while your teenagers get into a game of outdoor laser tag.
