Dreamland Roller Rink is Lola Star’s magical roller skating dream-come-true!
Our first Dreamland Roller Rink manifestation was located in the beautiful Childs Building on the Coney Island boardwalk! The magical rink opened with a gigantic disco-bang! Our star studded opening party was hosted by Glamour Magazine and Tommy Hilfiger and attend by sparking stars like Marissa Tomei and Ashanti! Check out photos of this event! And, watch the film, Glamour magazine made about Dreamland Roller Rink and photos of the star studded red carpet Dreamland Movie Premier!
Dreamland Roller Rink filled the Childs Building with hot pink roller skating magic until 2010 when the owners of the building decided they would prefer to leave their building vacant for now! We are very grateful for the time we were able to inhabit this incredible terracotta building with gigantic arches which opened to the Coney Island beach and boardwalk! We had some incredible disco fabulous days of skating and dazzling theme party music filled nights! Check out photos of some of our incredible events!
We are currently looking for a new location for Dreamland Roller Rink!
