There are many places out there where you can find skateboarding amusement park rides. You are in for a great adventure with them as well. Even if you don’t skateboard you should give them a try. They are great fun for the entire family. The one downside that I have noticed are the lines though. When you get to the amusement park head to them first so that you won’t end up having to wait as long.
In Denver Colorado at Elitch Gardens there is the Half Pipe. This is a fun ride that looks like a giant skateboard. There are people strapped in a circle at two different points on the skateboard. As it moves rapidly from side to side and upwards, the people will be spinning. The feeling that you get when you are coming back down is like floating on air. Many people that get off this ride head right back to the line to ride it again!
At many of the Six Flags locations including Arlington and San Antonio in Texas you will find the Tony Hawk ride. As a person that loves roller coasters I can tell you that this is one of the best of them. It adds new elements that go beyond a traditional roller coaster. If you haven’t ridden one of them then you are definitely missing out. Make sure you take the time to go there when you are in Texas as it is something you will never forget.
Instead of getting into a seat for one or two people, you get into a type of cart. There is room for four people, two on each side and facing each other. Then the roller coaster takes off and moves very fast through flips and turns. What is so unique though is that at the same time this top portion is spinning in various directions. So you never know if you are going to see the turn or loop ahead or be going into it backwards. Each time you ride it, you get a new experience.
The Tug and Turn is a concept that is in the works right now as well. The designer is getting lots of interest in it so it is hard to tell where these particular skateboarding rides will end up. You may have to look online to keep up on what is being developed and where they are going to be in place. This should prove to be a very exciting design though that is going to raise the bar for this type of thrill ride.
You can be sure there will be more skateboarding thrill rides added out there as well. They seem to be a huge hit. They help bring some new people to the skating element as well. It is fun to see people of all ages enjoying these rides. Many of them get off and have a new appreciation for the thrill of this particular sport as well.
The response that these particular skateboarding thrill rides have gotten are encouraging designers to come up with more of them. They always want to offer new designs that are faster and more of a thrill for people. These types of attractions can generate lots of sales for theme parks as well. With the economy right now they need to do all they can to get people to come in and spend the day.
With new rides like these children will be encouraging their parents to take them. Some worry though that these new rides will cause the prices to increase. So far though that hasn’t been the case at all.
