As the past months have been some of the hardest of our entire life we would like to say a simple thank you. We are so very thankful as well as grateful at the amount of people who choose to share their memories with us. Your stories and kind words have given and continue to give us something to smile about during these tough times. We have truly found that we are not only surrounded by amazing friends and family, but a phenomenal community as well. As we do our best to move forward I genuinely hope that everyone will continue to share with us. Thank you again for everything and ALL SKATE!


The Miller family would like to thank everyone for the support that the community has shown us over the past 52 years. It has been a trying time with Covid-19 and we have been dealing with a difficult family illness. Don has been fighting cancer for sometime now. He is a private person when it comes to these matters, but we felt like it might be time to make this announcement. Due to these heartbreaking circumstances we will be closing the doors permenantly. At a later date, we may have one last event to celebrate the end of an era.
We would like you to keep Don and Dottie in your thoughts and prayers. Once again, we want to thank each and every person, past and present, who shared their youth, families, memories and time with us. We will miss all of you and wish you much health and happiness.
Please feel free to post your fondest memories, pictures, or any uplifting words. We look forward to sharing them with Don. Thank you again, please remember the family's privacy in this difficult time.


Due to the Covid-19 virus we will be closed until the pandemic passes. Once it is safe to reopen we will send out a post. Thank you and stay safe.

Hi Bonanza Roll-A-Rama and thanks for all the great memories. My name was Lisa Haynes and my friend John Albright told me you had a photo of me and some friends taken at your skating rink on your wall inside your skating rink. Anyhow you could post that photo here on your Facebook? I'd be much obliged to you! I skated at your skating rink when you were opened at Mt. Vernon, IL city park (I was 12 or 13) and when you first opened at your location on the highway (I was 14 or 15). And continued skating there just about every Friday & Sat night plus many Sunday afternoons. I'm sorry to hear you've been closed.
I skates there several times with the class and my girlfriend. That was back in the early 80’s. Great place and an Iconic figure in the community. It will be missed for sure.
John , you and your family are in our prayers. God Bless you all.
This was my class from Woodlawn and I (stl cards shirt). I believe we were celebrating someones birthday, but I'm unsure. All these kids are now 25-26 years old. Such good memories at Bonanza Roll-A-Rama. And you couldn't find better owners of the place. Thank you Don and Dottie for the memories ❤
Ok I have a story to tell. When my sister was little she always walked with her feet inward. I remember the countless times we made the trips to Shriners for special shoes, metal braces, straps that would connect from her hips to her shoes to try to straighten them out. It seemed nothing was really helping til my mom started taking us to the skating rink. It was then her feet started to straighten out and be corrected!! I thank Don and Dottie for this for having the skating rink!! And if she had fb she would thank you too!! Stay strong Don!! We all love you!!❤❤
What happened to my post? I use to come roller skating here!
It's neat that this place is still open! I use to come here roller skating from the time they opened until high school ended and a few times after that! 😀
It would be really nice if this place ensured that kids understood and knew the rules of the game...or better yet could hear the rules before you kick them out of a game. Particularly for kids who are not regulars. I’m very upset that was suppose to be a fun evening for my child ended up in her being embarrassed and completely upset where she is hysterically crying...and worse you all didn’t seem to care.
