Was a great experience. Wonderful family atmosphere and participation. Diversity of crowd was amazing. The allure was magnetic. Did not even want to answer nature's call.

I am hooked.

Holy cow! This was the most fun sporting event I've ever been to. A little like professional wrestling on roller skates complete with faux-fighting as well as really hard falls on roller skates and over railings and elbows flying and posturing....continued

I had fun this first time, but after going again 2 years later I need to downgrade this to discourage others from wasting their time.

I love Roller Derby now! This is my second time going and I'm hooked. Some of the stunts are staged, but the skaters work really hard and I love the fact that there are rookie skaters and seniors skaters going at it! I think it is a fun family event!

As having watched Roller Derby as a child, it was so exciting to go see in person, up close and personal. My teenage daughters had a lot of fun also. We plan to go back and take our extended family. We are hooked!

It was so cheesy that it was funny and fun! It was great watching kids and fans totally get into it. We had a good time. Plus you can't beat the price for fun on a Friday night.

What a kick! We yelled and cheered and all in all it was good fun. The venue was small so you really felt a part of things. I am not one for sitting for a long time on benches but we stood so often it helped!
Our son, (12) had never even seen...continued

No place for 0 stars? Shame. Last time I went the antics had some essence of realism, making it fun and exciting. This was like a big fart joke - they didn't even try to make the aggressive moves look real - they were always smiling right through...continued

Lot's of fun! It was just as cheezy and uproariously fun as I remembered it being from the roller derby watching of my youth. Pro wrestling on wheels baby!!

The crowd was totally into it and it was a full-on family-friendly event with lot's...continued

This event kicked a**! A good mix of athleticism, showmanship, drama and pathos. For those of you who were fans of the now-defunct "Rock & Rollergames" tv show that aired in 1990, be sure to go to the next event (in March 2009) as many of the...continued

While I had a fun time watching the Bay Bombers compete against the Orlando Thunder, I found this version of roller derby to be very campy and overdone. This felt a little too similar to a WWF event for my tastes. The friends we were with...continued

Completely awesome. One of the most fun things going. Wrestling on wheels, only better since it is a bit faster moving and more people involved. It sort of doesn't make any sense, but it is hilarious from start to finish. Fake or not, it must...continued

Great event. However, having seen the Thunder vs. the Bombers before, my only complaint is that the matches quickly and easily dissolve into fistfights. I really love watching the sportsmanship & skill the athletes display, so when men and women...continued

Ahhhhhhh, memories. I watched Roller Derby when I was a kid. I hadn't seen it in eons. I had a wonderful time. It was just like old times. I just can't fathom some of these older skaters flying around the rink. You must be really good to even...continued

I brought my daughter and her friend. neither one of them knew anything about roller derby. When we got in and saw the rink they started to get excited. When the teams came out and started warming up and some posturing started they thought they...continued

Big fun! Pro-wrestling meets Nascar on skates! Bread and circuses with an Eisenhower vibe.

Roller Derby at its best! All the action you could want along with the drama of who will win...sometimes. It really is fun and very entertaining. You get alot of action for several hours for so little money. It really is worth it. This is our...continued
