Looking for a fun way to beat the summer heat? Introducing Skate Station — a vibrant roller rink pop-up that will be taking over the historic dome building at the Chattanooga Choo Choo.

Brought to you by Dazey Skate Co., folks will be able to skate to funky music inside the former railroad station beginning Wednesday, July 3 through Sunday, Aug. 4. Admission to the roller rink is $12 + includes rental skates. Note: Rentals will be available from toddler’s size seven to adult men’s size 13, or you can bring your own skates.

Throughout the month-long run, Skate Station will host themed parties, learn-to-skate workshops, and even a night market showcasing local small businesses and artists. Every Saturday night will also feature live sets from local DJs with dance parties in addition to skating.
