Wheels-R-Rollin was a roller skating rink located in Schriever, Louisiana, open from 1980 to 2014. The rink offered public skating sessions on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. They also offered private parties, group events, and skating lessons. According to Gerard Clement, the current owner, the rink was remodeled in 2012 and renamed Skooter Gee’s Skating Rink. The remodel included a snack bar and pool tables.
Maria Ledet Clause, born and raised in Thibodaux, frequented the rink when she was in fifth and sixth grade. She says that the cool kids would skate backwards with their significant others.
In December 2014, the rink closed permanently due to lack of attendance. In the years following, Gerard and his wife Cindy McLaughlin Clement worked on remodeling the building once again. In 2016, the Clement family reopened the building as an event venue named La Patinoire, translating to The Rink in French.
