Let the good times roll!
Lola Star’s Dreamland Roller Rink, which usually sets up camp at Prospect Park during the summertime, is taking the popular retro rink on the road to City Point.
From now through Feb. 15, you can lace up your skates at BKLYN STUDIOS at City Point (445 Albee Square West) for themed nights like Soul Train, 1990s Pop, 90s Hip Hop, Lady Gaga vs. Madonna, Beyonce, Saturday Night Fever, Pop Divas of the 80s vs. 90s, David Bowie vs. Freddie Mercury, Spice Girls in Xanadu, Flashdance vs. Dirty Dancing, and its Glitter Disco Ball New Year’s Celebration.
“Get ready for the best holiday ever because Dreamland is ready to rock Brooklyn with our dazzling line of immersive, dress up, themed roller disco parties for kids and adults,” Lola Star, the creator of Dreamland Roller Rink & Lola Star Boutiques, said in a statement. “From Coney Island to Prospect Park, Dreamland Roller Rink places a huge emphasis on community, which is why we decided to bring our magic to City Point.”
Last year, the rink popped up at Industry City.
Dreamland began at Coney Island in 2008 when Lola Star won a contest by Glamour magazine and Tommy Hilfiger to make someone’s dream come true. With that, she took her credit cards and went to work.
“It was one of those times when you have to seize the opportunity,” she told amNewYork last year. “I have a belief in roller disco in general. It’s a very spiritual thing. There’s something about being on wheels and in motion to the music … it’s what keeps me sane. I have the best job ever.”
Tickets to skate are $12 to $26, which includes your skates, and can be found at dreamlandrollerrink.com.
