Penn Skates Closing After 20 Years In Business

A Centre County roller skating rink is permanently closing after two decades in business.

Penn Skates, located at 2210 High Tech Road in Benner Township, will host its last skating session from 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, October 17, according to a post on the venue’s Facebook page.

Owner Valerie Dench wrote that she has sold the building and is retiring.

“Although I will miss you all, I am looking forward to retirement,” Dench wrote. “I would love to see you again before we close and say goodbye.”

Prior to the final skate, Penn Skates will be open 6 to 9 p.m. Friday and 1 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday this weekend and next.

Penn Skates opened in 2001. In addition to public skating, arcade games, and a snack bar, it has offered summer and day camps and private parties. For the past 10 years, it has been home to State College Area Roller Derby.
