She’s keeping the party rolling all year!

The host of a summer roller disco party will open a new indoor space tonight, offering skaters a chance to spin all winter without freezing their wheels. The Dreamland Roller Rink will open inside Industry City with an already sold-out “Spice Girls in Xanadu” party. Host Lola Star, known for throwing elaborately themed roller disco events at the LeFrak Center in Prospect Park, said that opening the indoor space was the logical next step.

“In Prospect Park we had our best season ever, we were sold out almost every night,” said Lola Star. “It was time for me to take my dream to the next level.”

The new space, across the courtyard from the Industry City food court, will host events Thursdays through Sundays until next April.

The rink is decked out with colorful images designed to make people happy, said Star.

“It is covered in rainbows and unicorns and disco balls, and there are multi-colored lanterns hanging from the ceiling,” she said.

The roller rink has its own bar, and the Friday night gatherings will remain adults-only, but Star plans to host kid-friendly events on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. She is excited to welcome youngsters to her parties for the first time, she said.

“When I talk about the roller disco experience, people go ‘Oh, when I was a kid, that was where I held a boy’s hand for the first time, it’s where I went with my friends,’ ” said Star. “I’m excited to provide that experience for the kids of Brooklyn, and to help adults relive that expeirence.

The Saturday roll-a-rama events will feature a costumed mascot named Sarah Sparkles — a roller-skating slice of pizza with glitter pepperoni — which was the most New York mascot Star could think of.

Sunday afternoon “Groov-a-licious” roller disco parties will welcome both kids and adults.

Dreamland Roller Rink (233 37th St. at Second Avenue in Sunset Park, Thu, noon–3 pm; Fri, 7:30–10:30 pm; Sat, 1–4 pm; Sun, 1–4 pm. $12–$20 (includes skate rental).

Reasonable discourse

where's the industry from Brooklyn says:
"Where's the industry?" It's no wonder that NYC is loosing it's jobs (and diversity) if this is what we call "industry" and what's allowed within our industrial zones!
