In skating, as in dangling from the edge of a cliff, it's important not to let a fear of falling make you miss an opportunity to hold someone's hand. Don't leave today’s Groupon hanging at Landslide Skate Park in Clinton Township. Choose between the following options:
- For $10, you get an all-day skate pass (a $20 value).
- For $25, you get five two-hour sessions (a $55 value).
Landslide Skate Park charges a $2 rental fee for both helmets and pads.
The terrain at Landslide Skate Park unfolds across 22,000 square feet of indoor shred space, enabling ollies and grinds with an angular array of wooden ramps, bowls, and half pipes. Skaters of all ages and skill sets can whiz past vivid graffiti-laced walls and neon furnishings while honing kick-flips, heel-flips, and 360 flips on sleek metal railings and brick ledges. Stairs and obstacles dot the landscape, and a plush foam pit cradles plummeting skaters from the dangers of learning aerial maneuvers. Like Oprah's collection of solid gold beanie babies, the skate park is always expanding, and the construction of a new 100’x35’ bowl ensures ample room for daredevilry and cereal parties. While not included in today’s Groupon, riders can upgrade their gear at a pro shop stocked with apparel and skating tackle from Venture, Thunder, and Alien Workshop as well as seek sustenance and refuge in a cozy on-site snack room.
Landslide Skate Park
The collection of ramps and half pipes inside Landslide Skate Park's 22,000-square-foot indoor skate facility offers a year-round haven for skaters of all skill levels. During private, group, or open-skate lessons, students master the nuances of kick-flips as experienced skaters demonstrate tricks and retired skateboards deliver instructive lectures. The park's foam pit provides a soft, cushy landing for skaters to practice aerial maneuvers without fear of injury, and a slew of private party rooms, flush with snacks and foosball, host birthday celebrations. Serious skaters can purchase top-of-the-line gear and apparel from brands such as Zero, Habitat, and Alien Workshop in the pro shop, or invest in a park membership for discounted access to the park and lessons without having to disguise yourself as Tony Hawk's legal guardian.
