When it comes to roller rinks, bigger is not always better.
Always remember that people have more fun when there's a crowd.
A good ball game is more exciting if the stands are full then
when they're half empty. You want your facility to be able
to accomodate larger crowds, but you don't want it to feel
empty when you only have fifty people in the building.
Roller rinks range in size from 8,000 square feet to 40,000
square feet, depending on what size community they're located
and what attractions they offer. Most roller rinks are around
20,000 square feet.
The skate floor should take up no more than 60% of the entire
building. This means that the average skating surface is around
75' x 150'.
