Hatfield has a little-known place for teens to have some fun.

In 2006, Brian and Shawn Darling purchased the former Thunderbird Roller Rink and began working on the building: they renamed it Club Twilight. They decided to keep it a roller rink and added a dance element to the long-standing building in downtown Hatfield.

The first order of business was to resurface the skating floor, which now includes the club’s logo. Skaters of all take part in the fun. Roller skate rental is available and inline skates can be rented. An admission fee is also charged whether the is skating or not. Parents, as well as children under age 3, are admitted free.

Although the building is still being remodeled, the rink is open and ready for guests. The Darlings always wanted to own a club, or a place similar to one, and saw this facility as a chance to achieve that goal. A state-of the art music system keeps skaters and dancers entertained and plays any type of music genre anyone requests.

Concessions, including beverages, snack food and ice cream, can be purchased at the facility. Fully heated during the winter and air conditioned in the summer, the rink and dance club is a place for get-togethers and birthday parties.

The rink is currently open for business three days per week. Friday evening skating runs from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.; the floor is then opened up for dancing until midnight.

Saturday evenings, skating starts at 7 p.m.; the floor is available for dancing at 10 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays, the rink is open for skating from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Club Twilight will host a New Year’s Eve gathering Wednesday, Dec. 31, from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 1, 2009.
