NEWPORT NEWS—During its Wednesday, May 25 session, Newport News City Council approved a conditional use permit that will allow a roller skating rink to operate in the DW Center (formerly known as the Denbigh Village Shopping Center) at the intersection of Denbigh and Warwick boulevards. The facility is expected to include a skating rink, arcade, a children’s jungle gym, a full kitchen and party rooms, as well as food and drink kiosks offering local offerings. The rink is expected to be open by spring of next year.

The owners of what will be called SK8 House Newport News currently operate a successful skating center in Virginia Beach—SK8 House Family Entertainment Center—which opened in Lynnhaven North Shopping Center in 2022. That center offers Summer SK8 Camp, Monthly SK8 Passes, Adult SK8, weekly events, roller skating lessons, and skate rentals.

“The Denbigh area is a very vital part of the Hampton Roads community,” said Robert Barnuevo, facilities manager and one of the owners of SK8 House when asked why they chose the location. “Denbigh’s diverse and growing community, along with the city’s dedication to the local business community was a major driving force behind our decision to bring SK8 House to the area. We want to give something back to the community in ways of unity, family, and entertainment.”
