He said Red Light Green Light teaches beginners how to stop, Wipeout teaches them to fall without hurting themselves and Ghostbusters teaches new skaters how to turn.
Roy estimated he had done the Hokey Pokey more than 7,500 times in his life.
"The kids skating here now, some of them are the children and grandchildren of the kids I taught to skate at Skateland in Kanawha City," he said.
Among the children he's taught have been his own four, who he said have grown up on skates.
His youngest daughter, 9-year-old Grae, also learned to skate before she could walk. He said he and his wife would hold her up and she would move her feet as if she were skating. Roy strapped a pair of Fisher-Price skates on her feet and watched in amazement as she clicked her feet on the floor trying to skate.
"All she had ever seen had been people skating," he said.
Grae helps her dad at the rink and skates there often.
So do other area children. The rink was filled with kids and adults attending two birthday parties on a recent weekend. Jaxson Bowles, 10, and Cameron Griffith, 14, were helping Roy behind the counter and skating to the music.
Cameron, a freshman at Riverside High School, has been going to Skateland since he was 3.
"I'm here every day we're open," he said from behind the counter. "It's a very fun concept, and it's good exercise and good for the kids."
Jaxson, a 10-year-old student at Mary Ingles Elementary School, agreed.
"I like coming here," he said. "On weekends it's the only thing to do, and it's a good way for kids to have fun."
The boys, who also practice skating tricks on the rink, are excited about the game room.
Joe Lipscomb, 54, of Gauley Bridge was at the rink for a birthday party for his grandsons, Kayden and Trevor. It was his first time skating in about 15 years he said. He took a tumble on the floor but got back up and skated a little more before calling it quits, saying his ankles were killing him.
"This is good for the kids, good exercise," Lipscomb said with a laugh. "Hard on us old people.
"It's good for them to have a place like this to come to. It keeps them out of trouble and off drugs. Busy kids are good kids."
The rink is open 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Monday for Christian Skate Night; 6:30 to 9 p.m. for $2 Tuesdays with Top 40 music; 6:30 to 9 p.m. Thursday for Country/Retro night; 8 to 11 p.m. Friday with Top 40 and dance music; noon to 11 p.m. Saturday; and 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
