New roller rink set for opening in July in Balzac

New Horizon Mall (NHM) held a ceremony on June 12 to celebrate the announcement of the SkyCastle Family Entertainment Centre (FEC) set to open at the mall in mid-July.

SkyCastle Family Entertainment Centre (FEC) set to open at the New Horizon Mall (NHM) in Balzac mid-July.

The SkyCastle FEC roller rink, located at the west entrance of NHM, features 10,000 square feet of floor space for rollerblading, an arcade zone, licensed restaurant and bar, and modern sound system. 

The restaurant and bar can accommodate over 300 visitors, and three large party rooms are available for events. The report said that instructional classes and theme nights will be the main promotional events that take place at the SkyCastle roller rink. 

SkyCastle, NHM representatives, and the YYC Princesses attended the announcement celebration on June 12. SkyCastle president Han Liu said he is extremely excited for the mid-July opening. 

“Who doesn't like a roller rink?” asked Liu.

The NHM SkyCastle FEC joins Liu’s two other FECs in the city, and according to the report, he recently opened the SkyCastle Macleod FEC in South Calgary in 2022.

NHM general manager Bob Parsons said NHM has been breaking monthly visitor records with an increase to over 40,000 monthly visitors, and he believes the SkyCastle FEC can further drive up their numbers. 

“It’ll be a blast to see this facility open to the public this July,” said Parsons.
