Seaside Session

Ramp City, Blackpool

The Seaside Session at Blackpool is a guaranteed great weekend. Organised by the famous Woody from Big Woody’s skateboard shop (with plenty of skate gear available at the park), it’s a popular stop on the tour and never fails to turn in to a session to remember.

Ramp City is a 29,000 square foot indoor skatepark located not far from Blackpool town centre and at the end of the M55 motorway.

Inside the park you’ll find four halfpipes from the 3ft 6inch micro mini spine, right up to one of the UK’s largest vert ramps standing at a mighty 13ft 3in very usable 12ft 9in (with extensions at the old height), a pool with real concrete coping and the only wooden indoor fullpipe in the UK. Street skaters aren’t left out with a section comprising of two driveways with rails and hubbas, low rails, Wembley gap, and new centre piece plus numerous quarters and roll-ins.
