ok. i am good friends with the guys in charge of this place, and finally got a chance this weekend to go check everything out. only two words can describe the facilities:
its unbelievable, and FAR surpasses anything i was expecting to see. first off, its in the middle of butt-fucking nowhere, which is a good thing for a place like this. when you get there, its a long drive past some good old fashion Ohio corn fields, and you see the massive hangar and outdoor skatepark. the outdoor park is about 90% finished, and is straight outta the Xgames, gargantuin, theres sooo much to ride, its sick.
to the left, is a HUGE hanger, which is all brand new and will feature all sorts of crazy shit as well, including foam pits and things of that nature. theres alot of features built, but its not really layed out yet.
back in the woods thou, my god. i have never seen such an impressive jump trail. for all you cats that bike, this right here is worth more than the weeklong admission fee. it snakes back in forth down a gradual hill, with all sorts of huge hits, hips, banks, etc. all the jumps are super nice, with good landings, its a work of art. ive never seen such an intricate network of features.
behind the hanger, theres a very large hill, partially man made, about 80-100 ft high. its all set up and grated out for the jumps, which are being built this week. the pool is all empty, and is fully airated, and DEEP. might wanna consider some leashes for the sticks if you dont wanna swim down for um. lets just say this about them. you will have no issues going absolutely huge. the ramps are also being switched to a new material, not snowflex. its a bit more expensive, but its faster, allows for better edgehold, and if you fall on it, its not gonna kill you like snowflex will.
theres still some more that will be built, but for the most part, the place is very close to completion, and if you were considering MAYBE going, do it. theres soooo much to do there, and it will blow every single ramping facility in the continent out of the water (ive been to all of them). think woodward+world class water ramps. jea!!
