Winter Rollerland Wrap-up


It’s been an exciting two weeks these July School Holidays with our Winter Rollerland attracting many happy faces. It was the perfect event for the whole family!

Despite the cold winter weather, over 10,000 skaters and 16,000 attendees rolled through Winterland Rollerland! Enjoying the groovy tunes from our resident DJ while skating around the especially crafted roller skate dancefloor.

With roller skates provided and the assistance of our lovely staff and skilled rink masters, children (and adults!) were able to develop and show off their skills on the rink. 

City of Perth were delighted with the event that brought hundreds of families into the city for some free holiday fun.

Winter Rollerland was a great success for the City of Perth with over 16,000 attendees enjoying this free event across two weeks. Spirit Events delivered on presenting a visually appealing venue for a fun activity and supplying fantastic staff that made all the difference to the families attending.

While delivering high quality, professional events is our specialty, there is honestly nothing quite like watching the enjoyment on families faces as they watch their kids skate, many for the first time.

We just want to say a big thank you for this fun experience. Our sons had an absolute ball and it was their first time skating! Thanks again.

This was amazing, haven’t seen us all laugh as much as we did in a long time. Awesome family outing, thank you so much.

Just wanted to thank you for the best laugh I’ve had in a long time (tears included!) Watching our kids skating for the first time was the funniest thing I’ve seen in a looooong time!

Designing a smooth skating surface that would also fit the size of Forrest Place was a challenge. But coming up with creative ways to bring ideas to life is something we thoroughly enjoy! Drawing on the knowledge of some of our most trusted industry colleagues we set out to try a number of options, including the idea of using an actual dancefloor. To put our idea to the test, we hired an experienced skater to make sure our rink was of the highest quality.

Collaborating with the best industry experts is the best way to produce an unforgettable event. Which is why, Spirit is proud to work with amazing industry partners. We’d like to thank the following suppliers for assisting with this year’s Winter Rollerland: AKA Events Hire, Corpra Hire, Lux Events, Phenomenon Events and Rollerzone. And last but not least, a special thanks to the City of Perth for supporting free events in the city for the whole family to enjoy.
