(9/8/2006) Orlando Skate Park (Orlando FL) This is home for me! Memberships are a bit higher now (I believe I paid $125 last year). Hours are a bit different now too. They don't open till 11am now I believe and they are open till 10pm Monday through Thursday. Friday and Saturday they are open till 11pm. and Sunday till 7pm. 5pm -7pm on Sunday though is bike night so the flow course belongs to them unless you're good and they're cool with it. They don't complain when I ride it but I'm a regular they all know me and I actually ride fast as hell in that flow course. They're pretty cool to sit and watch in between runs in the pool because a lot of them are well sponsored and a few pros come out now and again. OSP has the friendliest locals at any park I have ever been to. PS- The photos with the fisheye lens completely ruin the look of that park. It needs no assistance in looking beautiful. I will send you some better ones if you like.
The Orlando Skate Park consists of a beginner's area, a big flow course and a bowl. The beginner's course is perfect for kids that are just learning how to skate. It consists of a 4' tall half pipe, a 4' tall banked hip, a mini hubba ledge and a mini handrail. The flow course is huge measuring out to 8,000 Sq. Ft. The terrain ranges from 5' deep to 11' deep, changing in elevation several times on the deck and in the flat bottom. There is a spine with a transfer ledge across it, a 90-degree hip, a 45-degree hip, 3 rounded hips, six different pockets and a couple big extensions. It has a 4' tall roller blending into a 9' transition that's perpendicular to it. There is an 11' vert wall with 3' of vert and plenty of transfers, gaps and speed lines. The bowl has a 6' deep shallow end with a round pocket and a square pocket and a round 9' deep end. It is equipped with painted pool coping and tile.
