Mobile Skate Parks: What are they, and why are they great for activities?

If you ride a scooter, a BMX, an inline skate, or are a skateboard fan, then mobile skate parks should be your first choice when looking for mobile activities. These structures are made from ramps and rails, and they are designed to provide a platform for skating in a Popup Skate Park format. And since they are portable, they can be set up temporarily for a few days or weeks.

For instance, Highline Adventure offers mobile skateparks for hire, suitable for scooters, inline skaters, skateboarders, and BMX riders.

What are the benefits of Mobile Skateparks?

There are numerous benefits when you hire mobile skate parks over permanent ones. These include but are not limited to the following:

- Portability

Portability is the reason they are called mobile. They are highly portable, and hence, the convenience of moving them from place to place is made easier. You can take them with you to any location of your choice (within reason).

- Ease of setup

Because they are non-permanent, you don’t need to be an expert to set up a mobile skate park. Apart from being easy to set up, you can also customise it easily to suit any skill level, environment, or skateboarding style, and this makes them fantastic for all ages and skills and superb for School Activities.

 

- Educational

Mobile skate parks can be educational, demonstrating safety to students, showing them how to do things correctly, and explaining the risks so that they do not make bad decisions. Mobile activities like this can also be used as a reward for achievement at the end of the year or wherever you want. 

 - Cost-effective

Compared to the cost of acquiring a permanent skate park, the mobile ones are affordable and are easy to acquire by anyone rather than having a permanent one. They are also easy to maintain, and hence, with a limited budget, it would be prudent to consider a mobile skate park ahead of a permanent solution. It is often this type of approach that local authorities use when they are testing out locations and footfall ahead of investment. 

- A lot of fun

One thing with mobile skate parks is that you can take them anywhere. Whether it is a festival, a community event, or just a fun activity, they are great and suitable for all ages.

- Versatility

Mobile skate parks are also versatile, which means you can use them for skateboarding or scooting. They are also ideal for use by schools, scout groups, clubs, or any other organisation.

When Are Mobile Skateparks Used?

Mobile skateparks have gained a lot of popularity due to the value and advantages that they have over permanent skateparks. For instance, schools use them for end-of-year rewards and summer fayres as rewards for good results.

Some parents hire them for big birthdays like 13 and 16. Also, Councils (Local Government) can hire mobile Skate Parks for Summer camps to test the popularity before a permanent solution is given.

 

Other instances may include: 

Places without a permanent skate park

In a place where there are no permanent skateparks, mobile ones become the option. If you want to practice skateboarding or have fun in a place without a permanent skatepark, you can then hire a mobile skatepark for the purpose. We also support monthly hires, so if this is a consideration, get in touch sooner rather than later to avoid disappointment. 

Events and competitions

Mobile skateparks are also useful when it comes to competitions and events. They can be used for competitions and events in schools, community centres, and clubs, among other locations.

Learning and fun

Skateboarding, inline skating, BMX riding, and scooting are some brilliant activities to engage in. Adults and children can enjoy these activities.

How Much Does A Permanent Skate Park Cost in the UK?

Building a skatepark is actually expensive. It will cost about £122,000, but the cost also depends on the size and other factors such as the type of materials and technology you are going to use and whether you are building it by yourself or hiring an expert.

Therefore, if you were considering building one, you need to weigh the options, the advantages and disadvantages, but the prudent use of your money would be to hire when you need, just for a few days or weeks.
