Name:
RampAttak is 1800 square metres of fun and challenges on wheels. It's designed to provide a safe and friendly play space for users of skateboards, bmx, inliners and scooters.  A variety of ages (6 yrs and up) and levels of ability are welcome to enjoy this facility through cooperation by all in attendance. Obstacles ranging from the beginner to the experienced are provided to build confidence and skill levels. 
Mountain bikes are welcome to use the park on weekdays between 3pm to 6pm and on Wednesday nights between 6pm- 9pm. This will exclude school holidays, public holidays and weekends. The obstacles at RampAttak have been designed to accommodate users in 4 disciplines:
  1. Skateboard
  2. BMX Bikes 20 inch
  3. Scooters
  4. Inline skates

Given that the park can get very busy at times, early primary school aged children and beginners are encouraged to use the park during quiet session times (3 to 6pm) or Sundays mornings (9am to 12noon). The park is not suitable or recommended for pre-schoolers (under 6 yrs old.)
Conditions of Use apply. These are available at the door entrance and should be read prior to entering the building. Simply, users will ride or skate at own risk and within their limitations. WARNING: There are high risk obstacles in the skatepark which are more challenging than others. eg: The mini vert ramp/wall ride and foam pit are recommended only for experienced riders. Spectators are welcome at their own risk as well. Management and staff are not responsible for personal property or any injury that occurs.

For your safety and enjoyment:  A limit of 140 applies to the venue. Helmets are compulsory and available for hire for $5 per 3hr session. Handle grips with plugs/bar ends are also  compulsory and are available to purchase from our shop for $20 a pair. Knee, elbow and wrist guards are encouraged to be worn.  Given the popularity of the park, the floor and obstacles are highly used and will incur some damage/chipping. Please become familiar with the surfaces and layout prior to riding, report any damages done to staff and avoid these areas to prevent injury. 

Important info: It is important to warmup your brain and your body on the smaller obstacles (street section) prior to using the foam pit or bigger ramps. If you go into the foam pit you must land on your feet holding onto at least one handle of your scooter/bike so that it does not fly into the air and hit you on the head or bounce back and hit you on the face/body causing injury. Do not try something outside of your limitations. Riding is done in a straight line up and down the building with no stopping on the obstacles in between.  Do not ride across the building to avoid crashing into someone or cause an accident. Have fun, share the space and be safe at all times.

Don't forget to download the waiver here, to speed your entry into the park. This needs to be completed for your 1st visit to the park and must be signed by a legal guardian and witnessed if you are under 18 years. By signing this waiver you are accepting responsibility for your actions or those of the under age rider and accept that should the rider hurt themselves it is their fault and not the fault of Nelsams Qld P/L as trustee for the Larks Family Trust, management or staff.

 The park is at: 393 Bilsen Road, Geebung 4034 Brisbane QLD (200m from Sunshine Railway Station)

What's happening with the bill from Council?

We presented our case to all councillors at their meeting on 24th Feb asking for the fee to be recalculated. They say they cant help us yet they've done it for nursing homes and developers of hotels in the city. They ignored the 1000 signatures of support we got from the community on the epetition and made no attempt to recognise the struggle the are causing.

The BCC pretends to listen but is really not interested in seeing that RamoAttak is an asset to the City. It wants to take money from a small business trying to do something positive for children, youth and families in the community. We are fighting for our securiry and the needs of youth trying to avoid having to pass the cost onto those who can least afford it. 



Updates

School holidays commence Monday 7th April to 21st April 2014. Remember we offer 12 and under sessions on each Tues and Thursday morning from 9am to 12noon. We will be open on Anzac day and every day over the Easter break.

WHAT'S HAPPENING WITH COUNCIL?

Our application for Permissable Change to recalculate the charges has been sent to the Brisbane City Council. We are collecting more information (water useage, rider numbers and car park spaces) to strengthen our argument to be assessed as court space useage like any other small recreation venue rather than as a commercial business operating at an industrial location. Pity the BCC can't see common sense like the Gold Coast City Council or Logan City Council who removed these fees from similar facilities because of the benefit to youth in the community. Fingers crossed.
