Ramprage is a quite large indoor skate park in Colchester. The park has a half pipe roughly 4ft with 2 extensions on one end facing opposite each other, they are 5ft. The main part of the park has a 5ft wide quarter pipe with a roll-in gap in the middle, a jump-box, a roll-in for the jump box which can also be used as a step-up from the half pipe, a driveway box with a rail going across and down, a hip coming off of the driveway, a 5ft quarter pipe with a 5ft flat bank next to it, a wide 8ft quarter pipe with a door gap in the middle, a bank quarter pipe running across the whole edge of the park leading to a concrete bowl pocket and also they have many ledges, rails and kickers to play around with.
Pro’s – The park is pretty big and has a lot of space to make up lines and flow around. There are ledges, rails and kickers that you can move around and have fun with.
Con’s – Due to the park being pretty new it can get packed at times, usually weekends.
Park DX is an indoor, relatively small but a super fun Skate Park located in Cowdray Avenue, Colchester. The park has two sections, the first part being the street section and the other section is a nice big half pipe. The half pipe is roughly 20ft wide, which is pretty huge and it’s 5 ft. high, which is perfect. The half pipe also has a sub-box sort of extension, which makes that section about 7ft, its super fun! In the street section they have the main quarter pipe which 4ft and is also pretty wide, and on the end is a flat bank extension to drop in from. After the quarter pipe there is a driveway box with a flat to down rail and a ledge on the side running all the way up, along and down. After that is a huge vert wall that stretches near enough to the ceiling.
Pro’s – The street section is all connected so you can lay down tricks on different ramps in the same run. The staff are friendly and there is a shop for food, drink and for any parts or products you need skate park related.
Con’s – The quarter pipe in the street section is only 4ft so if you want to get some decent height on the vert you have to really try for it!
Boadicea bowl (Shrub End bowl) is a concrete bowl located in Boadicea Way, Shrub End, Colchester. The bowl has 5ft transition going all the way around it with a 7ft extension with a slight curve to it, a 7ft cradle which curves around a full 180%, a hip and a 1ft slope into a 8ft deep end of the bowl. This park is really fun and flowy as you can just carve and pump around it for as long as you can! The edges around the park are also concrete so you can do tricks out of the quarter pipes.
Pro’s – The park has so much flow, you can ride around hitting all the transitions in one run. It has floodlights if you want to ride at night.
Con’s – Leaves and dirt can get in the bowl so when you get there you can either dodge them or you have to sweep up a little, worth it for a good session though!
