Loganville Roller Rink To Open Next Month

Owners of Skate 78, the proposed roller skating rink on Highway 78 in Loganville, expects to be open by Dec. 15.

If the application for a waiver on the number of parking spaces required is approved at Thursday's City Council meeting, the owners of a proposed roller skating rink in hope to have a grand opening before Christmas.

"We are very excited and can't wait to have a Grand Opening of the first skating rink in Loganville -- 78 Skate," said Tamie Malanga, co-owner of the venture. " has closed while we are undergoing this change and will be replaced by 78 Skate."

Malanga said Albright's Flooring is moving from their location in Suite 500 to Putt 'N Play's former location, Suites 100 - 300 in the front of the building. She went on to explain what 78 Skate is planning to offer.
"A NEW skating floor - large enough for lots of skating and fun," she said."We are keeping the indoor miniature golf, although we will have 9 holes versus our original 18 holes. Another change is that we will not have the bounce houses in our new location. We are moving away from a "kid venue" and are looking to appeal to the tween and teen customers. We will also offer different skate night options."

Malanga said 78 Skate will have an expanded arcade to include pool tables and lots of fun games, including a ticket redemption counter with fun prizes. 

"We are also going to have an expanded concession offering a variety snacks and quick, good food," Malanga said. "And to accommodate the parties, groups and teams, we will still have two party rooms as well as a general seating area in the concession area for customers and parties - groups and teams as well." 

Malanga said they are shooting for a Grand Re-Opening on Dec. 9, depending on circumstances, but hope to be open by Dec. 15 at the latest.
