Prices are based on who uses the Skatepark and the real costs associated with each visit.  This is mainly based on the litter dropped, the first aid needed and the wear and tear on the Skatepark and the building.

The Skatepark isn’t a crèche so we don’t allow children to stay in all day.  No food is allowed in the Skatepark and only drinks in plastic bottles are permitted. no cans, no glass bottles or juice cartons.

Scooter Sessions are now supervised by Rockcity staff to ensure satisfactory behaviour.  This is not coaching or any advanced safety measure and does not mean that accidents are any less avoidable.  It means that those who cease to meet our minimum standard of behavior will be asked to leave.
