OMG !!! ;-) THIS BROUGHT BACK SOOOO MANY MEMORIES !!!! lol lol I got soooo excited when I found this site and these comments about the gulf gate skate rink... Ohh how, I had sooo much fun in that rink.. Friday Nights were the best. If my Mom told me no to the $5 bucks, My grandma would give it to me.. 2 bucks to get in w/ skate rental & a soda , w/ nachos !! ha ha great to see sooo many folks that remember the place.. Yes you are sooo correct about the location .. Happy New Year..
