Unique Places in San Antonio: The Rollercade

Kicking off our new photography series, Unique Places in San Antonio, Batts Media Group visited The Rollercade. Since the 1950s the Rollercade has provided generations of families with roller-skating, thumping music and plenty of bruised knees.

Originally Northporte Rollercade, its name was shortened in 1984. San Antonio’s premiere roller-skating facility seems to be frozen in time with its heavy 70s roller disco theme, complete with neon lights and trippy magic carpet day-glo swirls. Even the iconic sign out front, designed by Lionel Sosa in 1958, sports five huge brightly lit neon circles spelling ”SKATE.” Besides offering public skating, the Rollercade also provides private lessons and parties for young and old alike.

We had a blast photographing visitors and hearing stories about local skating greats including Stan the Man and Bron Savage. Take a look at the gallery below and stop by the Rollercade for good vibes and a roll around the rink.
