Comparing The Factory to Ski Hills

This Sounds Interesting…
How does The Factory compare to all of Minnesota’s Local Ski Hills? How many months use do you get for your membership? How many hours of use each session?

Learning More About Indoor Skateparks

Based on the History of Indoor Skateparks, there will unfortunately be a day when The Factory closes… And it is not until that day when this facility is gone that more people will realize, appreciate, and respect what we did have here locally right in Minneapolis to ride indoors. This has been the trend here with all our local skateparks. For those who are new to action sports, let’s glance into another perspective so we all have a better idea of our indoor park situation…

What is Killing Indoor Skateparks?

Summers and nice weather. Very few riders support their local park after the snow melts, everyone wants to ride outside. Riders not wanting to pay to ride or support a local facility. Riders sneaking other riders in without paying. Not cleaning up after yourself & others. Leaving a facility dirty. Spray painting ramps. Not respecting the building & property neighbors.

Many different reasons go into why all skateparks are not sustainable. This is why we all had to come together as a community to create our own facility.
