Took us a while to get around to this one, but southwest NY has some indoor action worth checking out - Ghent NY is the home of SFX Skatepark.

After just one look at this park, I was like "Whoa - that's a SubUrban Rails park." SubUrban Rails [740.593.8145] is a skatepark company out of Ohio. This dude named Jeremy Stump works there, and he's a cool guy. They built this park in Mass called Rampage - looks a lot like this one. Their style reminds me of the guys that did the "whoopsticles" at the San Diego parks like Ollie House and the YMCA in Encinitas CA. A little on the small side, but endless fun - check it out!

"We have a new skatepark, opened in Nov '02. Indoor year-round. The SubUrban guys came highly recommended and didn't disappoint. Absolutely 1st quality. Regarding the design - they all skate, so we gave a lot of input and just let them go for it."

"built for bikes" parks...
this is custom skate terrain!
