Here’s a movie you probably never saw, or if you did, wished you hadn’t, Roller Boogie. That’s right Linda Blair and her roller disco buddies fight to keep the disco roller rink open as the end nears for disco. It was… well not very good however it is a great way to remember those musical days of the disco era.
Remember those days of mirror balls, white suits, dolphin shorts, roller skates and leg warmers? Of course, not to mention roller boogieing to the Trampps, Bee Gees and Lipps Inc which I only realized recently said fast enough Lipps Inc sounds like lip sync. Hmmm… maybe that’s where Milli Vanilli got the idea.That’s right youngn’s before it was on Shrek, Lipps Inc’s anthem "Funky Town" was a disco hit of the 70’s.
Anyway, for some roller disco-ing to “Stayin’ Alive” meant trying not to be run over by the real skaters. It really should have been “Stayin’ Vertical” for many. A lot of people were roller boogie challenged which is probably what brought the whole fad to a toe break stop, not many could do it.
But even if you couldn't skate that well, going to the skate rink and rollerskating was pretty fun because there was so much other stuff to do like skating conga lines, crack the whip, the limbo and of course, the hokey pokey. That is a great lead in to today’s deal which is $12 of roller skating for $6 at Rollerama and Rollerama West. There are two locations to choose from to use the tickets, the original location on 34th Street near Memorial Hospital and the other is on Brimhall at Coffee Road.

So even though they no longer blast out the Trampps “Disco Inferno” for you to roller boogie, there are still those other fun roller skating things to do. You should buy today’s deal which is $12 of Roller skating for $6 at Rollerama and Rollerama West and head on down for some of that roller skating fun.
