BEST PLACE TO ROLLERBLADE - 2003
Rollerdome at Metrodome
900 S. 5th St.
Minneapolis, MN 55415
Any park can supply endless paths of smooth pavement during the summer, but how many can guarantee 70 degrees in mid-January? From November through April, skaters of all ages and speeds swarm the Metrodome for some hard-to-come-by warm winter exercise. Patrons can choose between two floors; the upper is for the speed demons, the lower for kids and equally unstable adult beginners. Rollerdome also hosts specialty nights, including workshops with pro skaters, singles nights, and a family-friendly New Year's celebration. Shorts are common attire, and Top 40 radio blares as the shuttered concession stands whiz by. As long as you don't catch a glimpse of the snow heaps in the parking lot, it might as well be June.
