The Ches-A-Rena will soon be a memory, and several other roller skating rinks have gone the way of the dinosaur, such as Romp N Roll in Shaler and Ardmore Roller Palace in Forest Hills.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t still places to go roller skating in Western Pennsylvania. Most charge around $6 per session.
If you have kids or just want to relive your youth, head out to these roller rinks.
