Epic Skate Park


Epic Skate Park

Epic Skate Park is the largest indoor skatepark in Europe. It is located in the Moseley area of Birmingham, England.

The skatepark officially opened in October 2001 in a former bus depot and since then has undergone much building and development work. For instance, after opening, a giant halfpipe was constructed, making it the largest permanent halfpipe in Britain at the time. There has since been a larger half pipe constructed at corby skatepark / adreanaline alley (http://www.adrenalinealley.co.uk)

However, in 2004 the skatepark was forced to rent out about one quarter of the skatepark to a private company; 'Creation Rock Climbing'. Their arrival helped keep the skatepark open and out of financial trouble. There is also a skateshop, a cafe, skate school and a licensed bar at the facility.

July 2007: Epic Skate Park has closed, Creation has now taken over all 38500sqft of the building once known as 'The Epic Centre'Creation now runs the skatepark as a separate business, and will be working to change the image of the centreover the coming months.
