Here are some 3D blueprint pics for the City Center Building – which is where we are planning on launching The Trick Pit!
We will know if will be in this building or not (hopefully) by Friday night, Aug 20.
As you can see, we’re planning on having three different sized drop-ins. The middle one is the largest measuring 15 feet high, next highest is the one closest to the wall measuring 13 feet and the last drop-in will be 10 feet.
As of now, the dimensions for the foam pit are 30 feet x 20 feet x 6 feet high (sloped down to the 5 foot jump). In order to fill a foam pit this size we will need 8,500 8″x8″x8″ foam cubes.
The resi jump will be paired next to the foam pit so you can use the same drop-ins and launch ramp. The launch ramp is 5 feet high and the table top on the resi is 8 feet long with another 18 feet of resi sloped down to the ground.
What is a Resi Jump?
Well going from the foam pit to a jump box or table top is a big step. So a resi jump is something where you don’t get as hurt as on a jump box if you screw up a jump, but still be able to ride out if you land your trick. Now how is this done you ask? Well, the deck and the landing are lowered, and filled with foam and then topped with a rubber plate.
Street Skate Area
This area will not be empty like in the pictures below – we are going to leave what kind of features will be there to the skatepark building pros. That way we’ll be able to best utilize the space with bmx, skate and inline elements.
The trampoline is for practicing anything and everything – getting use to backflips, practicing a kickflip with a skate deck or just doing huge double corks into the foam pit. We have a jib box set up next the tramp so you can throw a board on your feet and practice your stalls, handplants, or whatever your creative mind can conjure.
The chill zone is for everybody. A great place to get some homework done? Or if you just want to hang out, read a Powder mag, watch some extreme sports on the TV and sip on a smoothie, or just sprawl out on a couch after a long day of throwing down.
