    I go to ron-a-roll every weekend with my daughter and this is the best place to skate. The owner Jason is very nice and most of his employees are nice as well. My mother has cancer and had to take off her hat as well which is why the next time she wore a wig. I don't know if they did this in a malicious way but I don't think anyone over there would.

    It is a sad moment for both parties but I will state that the rules are posted BEFORE you walk in with bold letters so I guess it may cause a shock when it may be your first time going there. Please don't forget or take it lightly that I said my own mother has cancer and had to do the same but we personally don't feel it was told to us in a disrespectful tone or manner. The rules are set for protection of the individuals there.

    Personally and a little off topic, they tell people to only drink and eat in a certain area and folk don't listen and what happens is they end up spilling something on the skate floor and us skaters can't access that part of the floor. They have rules for skating in one direction but when announced people don't listen and wonder why their kids are being knocked down by a large adult. Skating is one of the best sports and I truly love it I just wish people would follow the rules a little more.
