The event was a blast, really hilarious and so different than any other event in the area. It is a must see when it comes back around! One note though: the Goldstar seats weren't any better than general admission, check the price on the roller...continued

My husband and I had never been to a roller derby so this was an education of sorts. It was as much fun watching the crowd as the action
Like "professional " wrestling it is largely staged but if you go along with the whole thing it is kind of...continued

One can't help but get swept up with the die-hard fans' enthusiasm level. It's a fun, noisy event. My husband and I suffered hoarse voices the next day from all the whooping at the game. The skaters play to the fans' emotions, making it...continued

I loved this, it was a hoot. The crowd really gets into the action and at first I thought it was real!

This event is a hoot; it is similar to watching wrestling. The crowd really gets in to the game as well. Always a good time. If you have never been you need to go

12 friends attended this in Pleasanton. It was fun, but we expected it to be a larger rink. Thanks

I spent my childhood watching Roller Derby. Stayed awake many nights wondering how Joanie and Ann would pay those ginormus fines!
It was entertaining night for us but I must say I felt that the skaters would benefit from a bit more practice.
I...continued

For pure entertainment value, this was definitely worth the price of admission. 100% "white trash" entertainment - my friends and I laughed and laughed through the entire thing. Having said that, I'm glad we went. Goldstar is great for finding...continued

My husband and I took our 14 yr old nephew to the event at the Alameda Fairgrounds last night. It was a riot and really fun. This was the first Roller Derby event for all of us. Note to other newbies: the event is fake. "Its wrestling on wheels"...continued

Took my Mom for her 72nd birthday, we had a blast!
Brought back memories when we use to go to the Commack Arena on Long Island to watch the Roller Derby in the 70's.

it's pretty cheesy. If you want to watch good roller derby, check out some of the flat track roller derby going on. Bay Bomber derby is good if you want to remember the glory days of staged antics

This was a fun evening of releasing your inner heckler and inhibitions. We challenged ourselves to come up with the most creative lines to yell at the visiting team. The skaters did a great job of working the crowd and show some skating skills. ...continued

I liked the physical engagement between the two teams. The venue outside at the Pleasanton Fairgrounds was a fantastic idea. Scoring is difficult for me to figure out. Maybe someone could provide information about how the game is scored or give...continued

We had a great time. It was like watching the love child of the WWE & Saturday night at the skating rink. We will go again.

Oh my God! This was my first live derby, and it was SO MUCH FUN! The crowd was a great mix of newbies like me and cool old grandmas who have been into the derby forever. The teams were like that too--young folk, older folk, trim folk, hefty folk....continued

What a lot of fun! The benches were a bit rough on the bum so bring some cushions if you can. Good enthusiastic crowd.

The labeling for the seats was practically non-existent, as were people to help you find your seat.

However, once we got seated, we had a ball. Fully understanding much of the staged nature of the physical interaction between the skaters (but...continued

I use to see this on TV years ago. Out of curiosity I decidied to go see the "real deal". It was similiar to WWE...a lot of show and blustering. Somewaht intesesting for a night's entertainment.
