San Francisco is taking roller skating to a whole new level!!! This Saturday Mayor London Breed will present the ribbon cutting ceremony on San Francisco’s brand new pop-up state-of-the-art covered roller rink!!! San FranDISCO will be up for the next few months at San Francisco Civic Center.

What’s so special about this roller rink?
San FranDISCO is put on by the crew behind the Church of 8 Wheels. For this pop-up, they’re totally off-the-grid for power – using solar power during the day and run on a battery bank at night. The overhead covering will not only project against rain, the beating sun but also will be used to shine laser lighting, plus there will be LED moon flowers and more to make it a true disco experience.

  • The floor is made of a special sport tile that are designed to make (the inevitable) falling be more gentle. 
  • The skates are all brand new and have light-up LED wheels.
  • Sound-wise they have four QSC speakers surrounding the rink with two subwoofers for that deep rich bass sound.
  • We’re told that roller derby will be coming at some point!

Come join us Sat. Oct 15 at 2PM for the grand opening and be a part of San Francisco roller skating history. We’re going to have an epic funky good time!!!
