A skatepark run by a literal magician, designed completely on the fly

Stop N Sock was originally known as The Arnold Palmer Recreation Center and contained a driving range, miniature golf, and batting cages. It changed ownership in the middle of the urethane era, and the owner partnered with his friend -- a magician who ran a magic-themed pizza shop-- to add a skatepark.

"We didn't even have an architect," (co-owner Bob) Blattel told the Post-Dispatch. "I'd be in front of the bulldozers telling them where to dig."

The park had three sections: a slalom course, a banked freestyle area, and a snake run.
