Yes I would. If it was set up like the indoor ski hills in Dubai and had a rope tow and a nice slope I would pay $50(the average price of a days lift ticket). If It was just set up in an empty hanger and I had to hike back and forth I'd pay half that. It would be nice being able to sharpen park skills in the offseason with something other than skateboarding or paying thousands to attend Camp of Champions or flying down to N.Z.

North Carolina is already on it...

I got an email not too long ago saying that its progress has been slowed... um, they need to pick up the pace.

EDIT: I started another thread about it.

i was thinking more along the lines of solely a terrain park. no slopes, just features. no rentals or lessons, just those who know how to ride already. not too big (think the inside of a price club or warehouse store), but big enough to shred when its not possible outside.

I'd pay for it if there were no noobs or boobs allowed. If retards are riding then i'll hit the skate park.

I'd buy a friggin' season pass! I'd probably go on weekdays after work during winter too. I've always sucked at skateboarding and always will, so I can't do that in the off season. They actually have indoor parks in Tokyo and Shikoku, but those are way too far away from me. *On further research, there seems to be one in Kobe. Sweet!

I'd expect the usual park stuff... kickers (from 2m to 8m would be nice), boxes, rails, and a pipe if possible. Being able to do a line (like kicker, box, bigger kicker) rather than just doing 1 hit at a time would be nice too.

Price... maybe like $40 a day? But like I said, I'd definitely get a season pass.

Here's a list of the indoor parks in Japan. It has info on pricing and what kind of stuff they have. If the Kobe one is still open, I might head out there and see what it's like next week.

Artificial Slopes in Japan

we have one, half of it is just a slope and the other half is a park, costs like $30NZ (15US) for 4 hours and is serviced by a pommer (kinda like a rope tow).

Or thats how it was when i went, only been once.
