The first Skate King opened in Bellevue, Washington the day after Thanksgiving in 1974. Skate King Burien opened in 1975 followed by Tacoma in 1976 and Kirkland in 1977. In 1979, Skate King Kent opened, and then in 1980, they opened two centers in eastern Washington – Kennewick, and Spokane. Over the years roller skating died off and as such, Skate King began closing locations over the years, and before you knew it, the original Bellevue location was the last one standing until it too met its end in 2015.
