Open an Indoor Skate Park

An indoor skate park provides recreational facilities for skateboarders, rollerbladers and even BMX riders. A skate park may contain half-pipes, quarter pipes, spine transfers, handrails, funboxes, vert ramps, pyramids, banked ramps, full pipes, pools, bowls, snake runs, stairsets, and any number of other objects.

There is often not facilities for people who partake in action or extreme sports to practice and enjoy their skills. A skate park fills this gap by offering a venue with various equipment which people can use.

For this business you need a large space with sparse facilities where you can put all the equipment. A warehouse fits the bill perfectly and it usually has a high roof.

Business Model
This business often charges an entry fee based on time spent in the venue, by the hour, day pass or even an unlimited month pass.

Products & Services
You are in the business of providing a venue for people to enjoy themselves, besides offering the equipment for people to do their tricks, you can also have a shop inside the venue or rent the space out for someone else to run a shop.

Here in an example of a DIY skate park but there are commercial companies that sell the equipment as well



Target Market
You can decide whether you want to target professional adults, children with a kiddies park or both (adult park on one side and kiddies on another). It is important to make people sign indemnity forms when entering your venue as there is a real risk that people may injure themselves as well as enforcing certain safety rules such as the wearing of helmets.
