Singapore might be small, but it's got plenty of spaces to wheel around. There are various cycling trails to follow with your two-wheeler, ice skating rinks to channel your inner Michelle Kwan, and skate parks to pop an ollie à la Tony Hawk. But if you're looking something more retro, HiRoller Indoor Skating Rink will make your roller disco dreams come true.
A groovy combo of skating and upbeat funk music, roller discos were a hit in the 1970s. It was a place to socialise and show off that fancy footwork. Plus, it's an aerobic workout that burns around 250 calories every 30 minutes, so win-win. Today, the roller skating revival gives credit to Tik Tok where a myriad of Gen Z users (and a handful Millenials) flex their skills on the wheels via the social media platform – but this time to the sounds of singer-rapper Doja Cat instead of disco diva Donna Summer.
Whether you're jumping on the Tik Tok trend-wagon, or revisiting your favourite pastime, HiRoller Indoor Skating Rink in Pasir Ris offers state-of-the-art experiences on both inline and roller skates – think disco lighting and thumping music. Don't worry about falling flat on your face – there are inline skating athletes and certified instructors to guide you through your glide. It's also a great spot to introduce the kids to both inline and roller skates.
A two-hour session starts from $17, and a full-day session starts from $40. Regulars can sign up for the monthly membership which starts from $80. Due to its capacity limit of 50 persons, it's highly recommended to book a slot in advance. Be sure to check the rink schedule, before you do so to avoid any disappointment.
