Treasure Valley Skate Set to Open in Former Boise Location of 20th Century Lanes 

Treasure Valley Skate, a new Boise roller rink that has has taken over the State Street location of the former 20th Century Bowling Lanes, is now days away from opening.

"It's been two and a half years in the planning, but we'll swing the doors open just as soon as the [City of Boise] inspectors give us the green light," said Scott Stevens, who along with wife Tammy took over the real estate in the Collister Shopping Plaza soon after 20th Century shut its doors in June 2017. "This is new for us, but my wife and I are longtime roller skaters."

Stevens said Treasure Valley Skate's general manager will be George Cogswell, who previously operated roller rinks in Illinois and Oregon.

"Our general contractor has put in the skate floor; we're laying down the carpeting as we speak," said Stevens. "We're in the final permitting stages and awaiting approval of occupancy from the City of Boise."

Stevens said, if all goes as planed, Treasure Valley Skate should have a grand opening on Thursday, May 31. In the meantime, the rink's website says they're hiring cashiers, floor guards (think of them as lifeguards for roller rinks) and DJ's.

20th Century Lanes rolled its last bowling balls a year ago after operating at the 4712 W. State Street for nearly 60 years.
