Rothman Orthopaedics Roller Rink in Dilworth Park is hosting a Wizards and Witches Skate this Saturday, May 14 from 1:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. and will feature interactive entertainment, including Roller Quidditch, for visitors of all ages. Costumes are encouraged.
Each Rothman Roller Rink visitor will receive complimentary giveaways while supplies last, including wands, wizard glasses and temporary tattoos. Kids can practice their charms during “potion class” by making take-home slime. At the end of each skating session, all wizards and witches in-training will be asked to recite a spell aloud for an explosive surprise.
The Roller Quidditch games will be hosted during each skate session for participants of all ages. Everyone will be given the chance to score while in motion, but if a goal is missed, the player will be eliminated. Those who do score will be given another chance and so on until the top three players remain. The winners will be rewarded with gift cards to the Air Grille Garden.
The Philadelphia Quidditch Conference, a local chapter representing the United States Quidditch Association, will be onsite to assist in the roller games as “Keepers.” The group will also be set up in the park with additional Quidditch goals for people to play at their leisure.
The Air Grille Garden will offer its standard menu with a few special additions. The Sorting Hat Sipper, available as a cocktail or mocktail, gives patrons the chance to make their own magic as they discover their destined wizard house. “Butter Beer” will be offered as a one-day-only treat, as well as select snacks and sweets.
A valid Rothman Roller Rink ticket is required for skating. Ordering online ahead of time is encouraged. Visit rothmanrink.ticketsocket.com to reserve your spot today.
