There aren’t many places in New York City where you can channel your inner 13-year-old while roller skating under disco lights to “Dancing Queen.”

Enter Lola Star’s Dreamland Roller Rink, located at LeFrak Center at Lakeside in Prospect Park, the newly built space that opened as an ice skating rink last winter.

Star, a vegan yogi, has a huge presence in Coney Island, where she sells her t-shirt and souvenir designs and operated her first roller rink, on the boardwalk in the historic Child’s Building, from 2008 to 2010. (She’s also been a huge force in preserving Coney’s historic character.)

Prospect Park’s open-air rink is open daily for roller skating, but on Friday nights, Star takes over, hosting themed skate parties. Think Ziggy Stardust, Saturday Night Fever, or Livin’ on a Prayer.

This may warrant also tapping your 13-year-old style sense. As in, the more sparkle, the better. —Jamie McKillop
