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.”

Welcome to the future of local news

Today, July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper (except we also give you access to all the news we published before that day). We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in free credit just for signing up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for about 15 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
