🚨 Rink Update 🚨 9/8/2021
One year has passed. One year since our family heritage spanning 5 generations and almost 100 years in the roller skating and family entertainment industry pointed us in a direction we never saw coming.
Thank you for your love and support this past year, and almost 53 years in all. There aren’t words to adequately describe the outpour of support and generosity we have felt this last year. So many of you have reached out to help us after the devastating fire on September 8, 2020, and it means the world to our family. More than words will ever be able to share.
We have certainly experienced all the emotions this last year, and have fought hard for the last 365 days to figure out our next steps. After daily calls, emails, meetings, bids, the highs, the deepest of lows, the unexpected, and many “no’s”… it is clear that rebuilding isn’t in the plan right now.
We have cried, fought, and advocated for our Community these last 365 days. It hasn’t been easy. The amount of time spent working with insurance adjusters, lawyers, inspectors, and many in-between, has been a full time job and exhausting to say the least. Right now, in these times which we are called to live, it simply isn’t financially feasible to rebuild the Roller Rink with our current resources and options available in our State. Let us be clear, this is NOT a city issue.
If this tragedy had been in pre-covid times, it “might” have been an option, but the unknowns, building costs, restrictions, mandates and more, have made this uphill battle more than we can accomplish. If you know our family personally, you know we are not ones to give up.
It breaks our hearts to have to consider a path other than to continue our Family Legacy that has been a staple in this Community for almost 53 years. Our hearts hurt specifically for those in our community who are saddened by the next generation not being able to enjoy what so many have experienced over 52 years.
To the thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of birthdays we had the honor of hosting and celebrating over the last 50+ years, the school skate nights, the church skate nights, our amazing speed skating team, to the countless volunteers who have helped us sandbag the rink from the many of floods, to the countless volunteers who helped us re-open after the only time the rink flooded in 1996, to the never ending amount of regulars and guests that have visited us over the past 50+ years... THANK YOU. Last but not least... THANK YOU to our amazing staff who have helped us serve this community since 1969. We couldn't have become one of the top roller skating facilities in the world without you. You were OUR 2nd family, and the KING Family will never forget you and the great times that we had together. We love you and are forever grateful.
As the community and the entire KING Family continues to grieve this loss, we want to thank you for your patience, your love, and continued patronage of our Mini Golf Park which has helped support what is left of our family business during this difficult time. We plan to keep our Mini Golf Park open as long as we can as we navigate the next step in this difficult season.
As we pivot in these trying times, our hope as a family is to continue to serve our community at the highest levels through many different avenues like helping individuals and families achieve the 🏡 American Dream through residential real estate, Dennis' new profession. We will continue our endless commitment to community service and the potential of serving in city government. (Don't forget to Vote Nov 2!) And maybe one day… another family business in the greatest city in the world that begins and ends with a “P”.
Thank you for the 52+ years of love…
Thank you for the 52+ years of support…
Thank you for the 52+ years of memories.
Be well, be kind, and we hope to see you again real soon.
We love you.
