Let this upcoming summer forever be (unofficially) remembered as the season of the roller rink.
Following the arrival of a groovy roller skating rink at Rockefeller Center, Central Park has launched a similar, new immersive, musical and theatrical experience at its own Wollman Rink. Woohoo!
The ongoing happening is officially dubbed The DiscOasis and it will stay put through October 1.
There's a lot to unpack here.
First off, New Yorkers can partake in a variety of programs and theatrical performances with live DJs and special guests throughout the experience's run. There are open skate sessions during the day and food and beverage offerings all around the area.
The iconic Nile Rodgers joins in on the fun as well by curating a special playlist of "skate-worthy, groove-inducing tracks for each night's local DJ to spin fresh for skaters and dancers," according to Wollman Rink reps.
"I'm a lifelong New Yorker and, for me, Central Park was always the place where big things happened," the guitarist said in an official statement. "Since the DiscOasis is all about celebrating New York culture, there's no other place for it to be."
Tickets for the experience—which first launched to much fanfare in Los Angeles—are available for purchase right here. Skating sessions will be available from 10am to 10pm on Wednesdays through Sundays.
We're ready for you, summer of the roller skate!
