LAST NIGHT The Rollerdrome opened its media launch evening with great vibes, a whole host of music, a fantastic live band and of course - roller skating!


Residing at the Invisible Wind Factory's Rollerdrome area is a collection of fantastic people creating the seamless spectacle including Invisiburger that offer a selection of fantastic food & drinks including amazing vegan options, United Skates providing the protective gear and skates, as well as Invisible Wind Factory itself hosting the new multifaceted arena.


The atmosphere was sensational and I could have easily stayed into the late hours. The Rollerdrome is without a doubt a place that friends can go and chill with a good bit of scran and a nice drink - providing that they give skating a good go before having a bevvy, that is of course!


'the Rollerdrome will be a gem in the city that many people will create a lot of great memories at over the coming year.'

Whilst I was rather apprehensive at skating as I have not been on a set of wheels like this for quite some time, and was concerned of both falling over and then knocking someone else over on the rink, I braved it and gave it a go, even though I felt embarrassing compared to my friend that was dramatically better from the outset.


After the initial concern of falling over was steadily deceasing, although it was definitely not because my skills were increasing, I began to relax a bit more and eventually was able to get the gist and into the swing of it - though, still not very well - I was enjoying it nonetheless, and was not as concerned as I first was when I stepped onto the floor.


In a couple more visits to the Rollerdrome I will definitely be significantly more confident at roller skating abilities, and I honestly think that the Rollerdrome will be a gem in the city that many people will create a lot of great memories at over the coming year.


They offer a range of events across five nights every week from Wednesday to Sunday. Including beginners lessons on Wednesdays to improve your skills, so you can have a proper go at the party sessions on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays and have some great fun with some mates.


The staff where friendly & the atmosphere was chilled. The Invisible Wind Factory's Rollerdrome is somewhere I genuinely feel I could visit on a regular basis.
