People were really sad to see Happy Wheels Skate Center Close. Southern Mainers got accustomed to taking the kids on weekends, celebrating birthday parties there, and getting a romantic skate in on Tuesdays nights! (Tuesday's were adult night)

It was a staple in the community for more than 45 years. People grew up going to the rink then when they had kids of their own, they brought them to the rink! 'Twas a Portland family tradition. On Sunday December 15th, 2019, kids and families went to the locally beloved rink to skate for the very last time.

According to WGME, Happy Wheels could be making a comeback by Fall of 2020 in Westbrook! Ever since the news came out the community has been overjoyed. Everyone wants to know if there is anything they can do to help. Keep updated by following Happy Wheels Skate Center on Facebook.
