- How old does my child need to be to ride?
If they are under 8 years of age then we recommend them coming along to the parents club on a Saturday from 10am-12pm. There they can relax and not worry about any of the big kids getting in the way!
- How old does my child need to be to be left?
We are happy to look after your child if they are 8 years old or above here at ATBShop without you being on site. However they must stay in the shop or park and not leave the site as ATBShop can’t be responsibility if they leave the Skate Warehouse so you’d need to inform your child that they can’t leave the premises.
- How much will I need to pay to ride?
All the prices can found here on our daily time table – Always check we are open and running your session before you travel. Please do this the day you travel as things can change with events etc.
