This skatepark is absolutely amazing! It's got some of the best skatepark construction wood and concrete that can be found. It's got 4 floors of action, 3 being skateable terrain.

Floor 1 - Check in - Bar/Cafe with nice TV screens for watching skateboarding. It's got showers! bathrooms, beer and light food. The ceiling is actually the bottom of the concrete bowls up on the second floor.

Floor 2 - the concrete bowls are in here. You can take an elevator between floors. The Big bowl is really well built. The layout seems a little thrown off by the small entry to the shallow and really steep shallow end. But if you look at the support beams holding the building up right there it probably explains it. The trannies are perfect and coping is set perfect. It's a little funky but it can and will be ripped! The flowbowl next to the big bowl is really fun. It's fast and easy to ride. It has a big extension wall, a cradle, a nice hip and good sized flat walls for some mini ramp action.

Floor 3 - The Wooden Street course section. It's amazing to see all this in wood. It's smooth like silk. There's plenty of ledges, boxes, rails and banks to get lost on. I think the biggest feature is a six stair handrail so nothing is too extreme in here.

Floor 4 - Another wooden moonscape that is all flow. Pillar rides and rounded mounds are surrounded by wooden snake run corners and pump bumps. Getting up the vert wall is the challenge, getting a speed line into it is hard to find. So fun to rip around!!

If going to the UK, fins a way to get to this skatepark. You wont be disappointed!!
