Skating rink holding fundraisers for expansion

Smoky Mountain Sk8way outside Waynesville plans to add an additional 10,000 square feet to its existing facility, which will allow it to offer a much larger skating surface, a cafe, a climbing wall, a toddler area, mini-golf and a pro shop along with an arcade. First, however, the business must install a state-required $50,000 fire protection sprinkler system.

The Sk8way is targeting local businesses to buy ads on the outside or inside of the rink, on the Smoky Mountain Sk8way website and be eligible for membership benefits. The rink is also willing to barter or make in-kind trades for building materials, carpet, paint, plumbing, electrical and carpenter services just to name a few.

The rink is located on U.S. 23-74 between Waynesville and Sylva.
