What You'll Get
Skateboarding through a warehouse will either land you in jail or, in certain cases, land you a job, when a gruff foreman realizes your unruly yet innovative potential. Skate legally and liberally with today's Groupon: for $12, you'll get two three-hour open-skate sessions, including helmet rental, at SK8 ASYLUM, an indoor skateboarding haven located in Mesa on Pecos Road. Open-skate times are scheduled at night on Wednesday and Friday, and throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday.
SK8 ASYLUM's skate park provides grind- and ollie-worthy real estate for riders of all ages and skill levels. As an indoor wonderland, the park is tricked out with a 20-foot-wide mini-ramp, a spacious, coping-lined wooden bowl, a full-scale 12-foot vert ramp, and more street-course elements than most post-apocalyptic street courses. If you don't know the difference between spines, Euros, and banks, then either rent Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 while wearing a British boarding-school uniform for studious inspiration, or check out the wheel-watering snapshots of SK8 ASYLUM's skate park.
In the interest of safety, the park requires helmets for all skateboarding bodies under the age of 18. Likewise, riders can choose to bring their own helmet or don the rental helmet included in the cost of this Groupon. Sessions run in three-hour blocks, so be sure to check the schedule to maximize your shred time and fit an optimum amount of practice into a week already hectic from practicing reptilian ninja arts in the city sewers.
SK8 ASYLUM was featured in the Arizona Republic and on FOX 10 Arizona Morning:
- "We have excellent instruction and our teachers are very experienced skate boarders but also patient and good with young people," [founder] Bryan said. "They can get a kid with little experience and maybe little initial confidence up and going very quickly." – William Hermann, Arizona Republic
