    My son was lacking confidence with his new scooter so we looked for somewhere local to get some tuition on the ramps. We rang Base and they said they offered hour long lessons with some time on the ra...  more »

  • The park isn't bad at all however you will find yourself waiting a while to get a line or two in when it's busy. Going during the week is best for when you want that 'huck it' session. Staff are friendly and humorous and the Cafe has many options to choose from. Only issue i have is with one of their 'pro members' Jordan Clark, who is an absolute tw@.
  • Shocking customer service from the owner . When we arrived there seemed to be some sort of staff meeting happenning in the middle of the skate area. My son was politely asked by a man who seemed to work there if he would mind moving out of the way while they (a group of young men and the female owner) did some filming for something which looked like some sort of training video publicity thing. Not impressed having travelled here from Brighton and having paid for a 2 hour time limited session. Son had to wait 15 minutes while mgt team posed for photos before he could continue scootering. My son is 6 years old and has ADHD so was very hyperactive by the time we arrived at the Base and really needed to let off some steam. He was then approached directly by the owner who informed him that his scooter was dangerous and she wasn't prepared to allow him to use it here and that it could "affect other children's experiences" were he to use it in the park. She then removed his scooter from him and gave him a "Base-approved" one. This caused multiple meltdowns and many tears from my son and after trying to get his emotions in check, we were unable to do this and had to leave having scootered for about 10 minutes in total. While I understand the need for health and safety and your concern for my son's welfare is very much appreciated, you knew I was his mum and you should have spoken to me quietly and not to a 6 year boy who thought his scooter (which he is very proud of) was being stolen and didn't understand what he had done wrong and why he had been told off. This is not a child friendly place and certainly not if your child has a disability or is not part of Base's uber cool management team of teenagers. It's a real shame as I Home Educate my son and we are always looking for places to go and have exercise when it is raining. This could have been a weekly visit for us. We are now down the road, at the flying fortress soft play area, a totally different experience. We were met by a smiling lady on the front desk, rather than a miserable teenager doesnt how how to smile and made us feel abput as welcome as Cancer. My son is running around and having a great time again. Even if I wanted to bring my son back to the Base, he won't ever come back again as he was very upset by the whole experience. (as was I). I wondered why it was so quiet here. Now I know. If you had any sense you would make yourself more friendly to young children and their parents and get your head out of your behind. There are plenty of younger kids like mine who don't attend school and are Home Educated who would like to attend during the school day, in this area. You could do a special offer for them instead of making them feel unwelcome so you can film your adverts and training videos. But maybe that's just not cool enough for your user cool (empty) venue?
  • It's amazing for all grades of riding scooters and bmxers it is fun for practising tricks as you can do them into the foam pit.
  • Really good food in the cafe. The ramps are good with a really friendly atmosphere.
  • Its a fabulous sKate park even though it's very bizzy
