News Tech: Stranger Things has given a new lease on life to an Albuquerque firm that had fallen on hard times. Skate-O-Mania, also known as Roller Skate City and Roller King to youth of the 1980s, is a bustling site these days.
“I watched the first season the year it was released. “I was so committed in the programme that hearing they’d be coming out to my employment was insane,” Padilla added. “We’ve definitely noticed a large spike in consumers coming in from out of state just to snap photographs and gaze at the skate rink since Stranger Things.” People are wearing the t-shirts, and some are costumed like the characters. It’s been fantastic.”
Stranger Things fans can immerse themselves in the show at Skate-O-Mania, which has neon lights and 80’s themes. Blaise Padilla, who has worked at Skate-O-Mania, also known as Roller Skate City, for three years, says the place hasn’t been this busy in a long time.
Because the production crew left all of the props, the rink still appears precisely like it did in the episode. It has aided a business that struggled under COVID; they were closed for 18 months and have recently reopened.
