A typical old fashioned style skating rink. Love to take m 9-year-old daughter there. (She loves it too.) Staff is friendly and nice. May not be modern or fancy, but definitely a good place to spend an afternoon with the young ones!

Great place and employees really are concerned and helpful. You could see the guys going out when people fell down and helping them up. Lots of neat competition games as well. You see old people there as well over 30 yrs old having fun and enjoying themselves! They even played some of that disco my grandparents still listen to! Tuesday is bargain day at only $5 a person, cant beat that price anywhere! Lets go skating!!!!

Place is old, run down and just plain nasty. The skates are filthy bring your own! The management and employees are so rude we will never go back! Their video games do not work and they refuse to return the coin the young man told us oh well!! Who is running this hole in the wall??? STAY AWAY go to another skate place in town you'll be happier after spending 10$ a child. The female at the front desk talks rudely to the kids done with this place!!!

Car-Vel used to be THE place to go when I was a kid. I would always have my birthday parties there, every year, and so would my friends. The mid-late 90's was a rollerskating fiasco - everyone loved it, and Car-Vel used to be a blast. It was littered with arcade games, everyone was great, and the DJ's really did get you pumped up, and even had fun games where you could win snack-bar prizes. It was booming all the time, but nowadays, it's understandable the reviews posted here. I went back a few months ago for a birthday party for one of my students, and the charm is still the same; even the paintings on the walls are the same, but the truth is it just "ain't what it used to be". It's a humorously harsh kind of thing to read "Parent's think twice", because the thing is, the strict rules and jackass attitude was part of the charm also - they've always been there, but going back myself, now as an adult, the place is pretty much "hit or miss". We all had a good time, but it just is not THE place anymore, and it's most likely due to lack of customers, or the employee's attitudes not just being a "charm" anymore, but actually being discourteous and unprofessional (I experienced that during even the private birthday party, so I feel the reviewer's pain about that at least), or a number of other things that were just inevitable. It's still a fun place to go, but the thing is, the Rollercade would probably be a better choice: it has the customers, and the main appeal, so it's understandably better. It's cheaper and looks a thousand times better inside. It's just the turning of the tides, I guess. Car-Vel is a great place, but it really just depends when you go, and how you do it. It'll have a warm place in my heart forever, but you have to let go of old, old, OLD fond memories to be able to look at it objectively now. Just be wary of it, and you may have a lot of fun (that was also part of it's charm, but it's all just amplified over time, especially with the recession). But if you're looking for something more instantly satisfying, check out the Rollercade.
