Prime skatepark is Plymouth’s only indoor skating facility made up of a series of bespoke wooden ramps and street section set in 3 warehouses near the city centre.
The first room features a 33ft long mini ramp which is 4.5ft high with 6ft extensions at the far end, a 10.5ft roll-in to a foam pit, a sound proof hut for chilling and plenty of seating area adjacent.
In the next room is Prime’s street section, set in 2 warehouses knock through to create one long room which is made up of a set of ramps on one side of varying heights. In the centre of top section runs a long round rail with a ledge running parallel and a mani-pad/ledge combo backed onto a small ‘A’ frame with a down rail on one side. The main feature in the room is a big hubba with banks and a kicker ramp, a step-up/flat bank sits at the far wall and another step-up greets you as you walk into the room with a small euro gap and a roll-in bank. At the back of this section is a big 8.5ft quarter with a smaller 5ft quarter in the middle which returns you over a huge pyramid back to the top section.
Prime skatepark is a great spot to come with friends to learn the basics but also to practise and perfect your tricks on some nice smooth wooden ramps. They also offer tuition and loosely segregate age groups during certain sessions to balance out time in the park for the right groups of users. Private hire is also available during the weekend for birthday parties and private sessions
Prime is especially good for those wet weather days too as it is completely indoors, although watch out as it will inevitably get busy at times.
Prime Skatepark first opened in 2010.
