Joplin skate park reopens


An extra dose of fun skates into Joplin, after a business damaged by the tornado reopens.

"Roller City" reopened its doors for the first time this weekend.  The owners say they expected to be open sooner, but improvements took longer to complete.  A new rink was installed, along with speakers and LED lights.  The rink is under new ownership since the tornado.

"Awesome.  We're thrilled to be here," says Roller City owner Renee Carson.  "Everyone has made us feel so welcomed, not even as a businesses, just meeting people very friendly.  Really warm.  We really like that."

The rink will have open sessions during the week and weekend.
