Without skate parks, extreme athletes are forced to ramp off the undersides of capsized boats, which in turn incites lifelong feuds with territorial sunbathing sailors. Keep the peace with today's Groupon to Inline 1 Extreme Skatepark in Mount Sinai. Choose from two options:
• For $22, you get a one-day admission, including waiver fees (up to a $45 value).
• For $149, you get one week of camp (up to a $297.99 value).
Inline 1 Extreme Skatepark's stadium lights cast quick-moving shadows of agile skaters, BMXers, and scooters across the floors of its smooth outdoor park. Between 10 a.m. and 9 p.m. on weekends and 4 p.m. and 9 p.m. on weekdays, join up with human missiles in the park's sizeable wooden bowl as they execute extreme tricks, slides, and jumps. Or watch as wannabe-cool physics professors demonstrate Newton's fourth law of motion by crashing their Vespas into an 11-foot-tall vertical ramp, rails, and varying gaps.
Alternatively, beginner, intermediate, and advanced BMXers, skateboarders, scooters, and bladers in the weeklong day camp can follow experienced instructors on the path to balance and trick nirvana in the week of camp. High-flying pupils take to the park each day from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and then take a break from watching presidential-blooper reels on Friday to take in a special skate-park performance by campers and staff for family. The last session of camp begins August 29; the Groupon must be booked by that date.
Inline 1 Bounce and Play
Inline 1 Sports Center's 3,600-square-foot fun park is divided into four dynamic zones—a bounce house, an extreme skate park, a mini-golf course, and an indoor sports center—giving kids a chance to try their hand at a variety of activities and play. The safety-minded staff keeps eagle eyes trained on little ones and teenagers as they flit through the facility.
Inline 1 Sports Center's locally inspired mini-golf course sends players of all ages through a nine-hole labyrinth, in which they must putt past the yellow plane at MacArthur Airport, through Mount Sinai High School, and under the Stony Brook Post Office. The skate park's 11-foot vertical ramp and rails invite adrenaline junkies to test their skateboarding and inline-skating skills. Meanwhile, the facility's bounce house engages little ones with air-filled slides and obstacle courses, and the sports center houses volleyball courts, soccer fields, and field hockey to inspire friendly competition.
In between challenging kick flips and exhilarating volleyball games, the staff welcomes players to refuel at the onsite Cuzzin's Smoothie Cafe and Grill. Inline 1 Sports Center also opens its doors to kids' parties, tournaments, field trips, and summer camps, in addition to open play.
