‘Aren’t going anywhere’: Nampa Rollerdrome gets facelift, set for grand reopening

The Nampa Rollerdrome has been a go-to gathering place for birthday parties, work events and Friday night fun since 1947.

While the original hardwood floor still sits in the facility today, owner Josh Lenty closed the rink for a few weeks to give the floor a fresh start. The floor hasn’t been resurfaced in more than 30 years – with the last revamp in 1990.

“This place is where kids go to be safe and socialize, families come to smile and laugh, competitive teams reside here that travel nationally,” Lenty said. “I love this place, the people in it, and most of all the pride my family takes in keeping it open.”

Years of memories

“We are sanding down 60 years of memories and coatings due to expansion and some bumps that naturally occur over time,” Lenty said. “(We’re) basically taking it back to the bare wood, remarking all the lines and recoating.

The Rollerdrome was closed from September 27th – October 15th while crews completed the sanding work.

The venue is a popular spot for birthday parties, work get-togethers, and other family and friend events.

“I could go on and on with life stories of the rink, generations of first dates, people who met and married at the rink, anniversaries, birthdays, etc,” he said. “Our history is long in the Treasure Valley and we aren’t going anywhere.”

The Rollerdrome will open and showcase its fresh floor Friday, October 15th at 1pm. For updates and more information, head to the Nampa Rollerdrome Facebook page.
