Food, Drinks, Payment:
It is not allowed to bring food&drinks inside the skatepark (a softdrink for yourself will be fine of course). Bags will be checked at the entrance.
There are two stations to BUY COINS, which you will need to pay for food&drinks. Both stations accept card payment – but you won’t be able to withdraw money.
Some companies will offer payment by card, but from experience it makes sense to bring cash if you want to go shopping.
Lockers: We have a limited amount of lockers for free use inside the skatepark. Please bring your own U-Lock to use it.
Lost and found: Behind the bar inside Area51 Skatepark
