Your first visit to Rampworx

Great! You’re coming to the skatepark for the first time, now let’s run through some details you will need to know to make sure that you have the best experience possible!

Firstly, you must watch the video above. Our skatepark etiquette video has been designed to give you a quick insight into how to use a skatepark. Skatepark Etiquette is a big deal to people that use our facility, it is all about being aware of other users in the skatepark.

If you have never been to Rampworx before, you must become a member, and it’s FREE! All you have to do is fill in the online membership form and you will be issued with a Rampworx Membership Card when you come to the skatepark. This card will allow you access to all sorts of cool offers and events, you can find more information about the Rampworx Membership Card on this page. If you are under 18, you parents or legal guardian must fill this form in. IMPORTANT! You will NEED to bring your membership card with you in order to sign in. Your first card is issued free of charge. If you forget your card for your session, you will be charged a £1 fee. If you have lost your card, you will be charged £2 for a replacement. This policy is to ensure everybody brings along their card, to significantly reduce queueing times as well as getting you in the skatepark faster!

Now, you need to find the time you want to come and vist the skatepark. If it is your first time, we suggest planning your trip around one of the earlier sessions as they tend to be more quite so you have a better experience. We operate on specific session times which can be found on our Opening Hours page.

Safety Gear

Rampworx takes safety very seriously, especially your safety! We encourage all riders to wear a helmet when using the skatepark. Its also a good idea to bring some knee and elbow pads, especially if you are inexperienced. These will save you when you fall and prevent long term injury that could be fatal! You only have one body, be sure you look after it.

Please note that all Aggressive Skate users and Scooter Riders under 18 must wear helmets by law. The rest of you don’t have to, but we strongly recommend you wear one – it could save your life!
