The Ripped indoor skatepark may be earmarked for closure but is still worth a visit before its gone forever. Its a real old skool skatepark that has a great character, it has a skate shop for any repairs or new bit you may need a tiny arcade and some questionable toilet facilities.
It features a mini ramp, a bowl, a street section and a massive floor with a fun box several flat banks and few bowled out corners, It even features a second big whippy mini ramp for those that dare ride it.
