  1. Is the Epic Lights the only place that has skate rentals? Might be nice to include skate rental info if you had it. Thank you so much for the great list though! It’s wonderful! 😄

    • Hi Stacey! At this time, I believe The Lights is the only skating spot that offers rentals. If we find out differently, we’ll make sure to update the guide! As of now, Scheel’s and Play It Again Sports would be good options for used skates. Thanks for your feedback!

  2. Are there any skating loops or trails near by? We are traveling up to Fargo the 18-21 and would love to find a good loop or trail to skate on. Thank you!
