The Boogie Bowl was designed to provide a challenge to all skaters. The "Big Bowl" is 82' by 40' and provides a pool type ride. The "Boogie Bowl" begins with a snake run, adds a 12' vertical wall, and empties into a 25' diameter bowl. The half pipe drops 15 degrees to bottom and then curves into a 20' diameter bowl. The freestyle area is 30' by 60', with a 6' grade on two sides.
Park membership is required to skate at the Boogie Bowl. The $4.00 annual fee includes a personalized, numbered membership card, a park sticker, and you will have your name included on the mailing list to receive the newsletter of special upcoming events. The admission price is $1.00 per hour, with a two-hour minimum. The sessions start every half hour and all required safety gear may be rented in the pro shop for 25 cents per item. The track supervisor will inspect all skateboards and private safety equipment and place a safety mark on each one to ensure against faulty equipment.
