What's going on, Albuquerque?
Rainbows over CSL Plasma on San Mateo near Central.
Formerly the Rainbow Roller Rink, a place for a hot date skating and drinking cokes. Closed in the early 70s (?). Billy Graham held evangelistic Crusades in the building in the mid 1950s. Now the subject is blood again, but in a different context.
I was going to this roller rink when I was in midschool, which would have placed the closing some time in the late 80s. What a great rink! A shame when it went away.
I remember a few birthday parties there, so it had to be the mid to late 80s. Are there any roller rinks left in the city?
There's Roller King up on Juan Tabo and the freeway. Kinda hard to find, and no disco. Definitely NOT as good as the Rainbow.
Thank you so much for the info on the past roller rink & religious crusaders. My information and affection of ABQ deepens. Dee
It was still a roller rink (just barely) when I moved here in 1992. I have a distinct memory of skating there in early 1993. I think it closed just after that.
