Skateway looking for a partner

Written by 

Smoky Mountain Sk8way is looking for a naming rights partner to rename the soon-to-be expanded Smoky Mountain Sk8way Sports and Entertainment Arena, in exchange for revenue to help expand. The partnership is not just about a name change but comes with a list of other marketing benefits.

Smoky Mountain Sk8way, the local roller skating rink located on the bypass, has been providing fun and family entertainment to Western North Carolina since 2010 and is the home to two female flat track derby teams: Balsam Mountain Roller Girls and the Balsam Mountain Junior Roller Girls. The Sk8way plans to become a 20,000-square-foot arena as well as a skating rink and family entertainment center, which will be able to accommodate up to 2,500 people and host community events like concerts, dances and haunted houses along with sporting events like roller derby bouts and roller hockey matches. The facility will offer regular weekly roller skating sessions, a cafe with outside accessibility, a climbing wall, a toddler area, mini golf, pro shop, arcade and ticket redemption counter. 

Proposals must be submitted by Oct. 31.

This Must Be the Place

  • This must be the place

    art theplaceMary Harper was quite possibly the first real friend I made when I moved to Western North Carolina.

    With my apartment a few blocks away from the Water’n Hole Bar & Grill in Waynesville, I ventured down there at night trying to see what was up in this town, trying to make some friends, and trying not to feel alone and isolated in a new place where I was unknown to all who surrounded me. Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
