General manager Doyi Kim said besides an indoor skating rink, International Roller Skates will feature arcade games and a café.

“While it is not something new in other countries, it is, I think, the first for Saipan,” Kim said in an interview.

The idea of opening a skating rink on island came from his father. “It’s very popular in Korea for both young and old people,” Kim said.

Growing up in Korea, she said roller skating was one of the activities that she and her friends enjoyed doing.

She wants the local community to also experience roller skating on their home island.

“Our aim is to keep kids, teens and older people active and healthy while also promoting more social interaction,” Kim stated.

The skating rink can accommodate up to 100 skaters, and the café will serve various snacks and non-alcoholic drinks, she added.

The arcade games area includes a trampoline, a playhouse, and other recreational activities.

The facility is fully air-conditioned and equipped with surveillance cameras and lockers for customers’ personal items.

For Saturday’s grand opening, Kim said they have invited K-pop celebrities LikeMe, the boy band Breakers as well as rappers Bino and Byungyoon.

The grand opening will start at 3 p.m.

Kim said International Roller Skates will be open from Monday to Sunday.

On weekdays, it will be open from 12:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
