It’s such a pleasure when we get to work with family friendly places to share local events and attractions! Thank you to The Swack Business Group and Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark for sponsoring today’s post! As always, all opinions remain my own.
Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark & Party Center is 33,000 square feet of pure fun! We’ve been coming here for years and it’s one of my family’s favorite activities.
Skate, slide, jump and bounce – there’s something for the whole family to enjoy!
The Swack Business Group, a Pittsburgh based group that is family owned and operated, recently took ownership of this unique park. They’ve been renovating the facility with a goal to provide a space for local family fun – mission accomplished!
The carpet park incorporates black-lights, glowing walls and colorful carpet to create an exciting atmosphere.
Our Visit to Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark
Last week we took our 5-year-old daughter to Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark to burn off a little energy.
When we arrived, we let the staff member know we signed our waivers online (great way to save time). She guided us through the doors where we met our instructor who helped us put on the skates and gave us a few pointers. Once we felt comfortable, we went into the main skate area.
One of the great parts about Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark is the ability to appeal to all ages (about ages 3+).
My 12-years-old son loves to navigate the ramps, jumps and slides.
My 5-years-old daughter prefers to use the slides in a more traditional way (she uses the larger skates for sitting and sliding on).
Parents – you can slide, too!
If you prefer to cheer from the sidelines, there’s plenty of seating in and around the skate park. The space is wide open and the centered bleacher style seating makes supervising from a distance easy.
For a small extra fee, you can add on an “All Activities” pass that will give access to all the extra attractions:
- Super Ninja Challenge Course
- Glowing Bounce N Slide
- Blacklight Dodgeball
- Carpet Hockey
- Nerf War Arena
Cafe & Arcade
If you haven’t visited in a while, you’ll notice some great additions and renovations.
We were thrilled to see a variety of arcade games including air hockey, pinball and Mario Kart racing. I also adore the new neon Pittsburgh skyline mural in the cafe area! Be sure to check out their menu online for snack, meal and drink options.
Birthday Parties / Groups / Events
Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark makes the perfect venue for a birthday party or special event. You can find a variety of packages – and they have very reasonable pricing!
You can even rent out the entire skate park and have it to yourselves with their Big Private Parties!
Their management and staff are so helpful and easy to work with during the planning process. Find more information online or email the general manager at [email protected]
Know Before You Go
Sign the Waiver – Everyone who enters the park must have a waiver. You can save time and sign the waiver online or visit the kiosk available near the front desk upon arrival.
What to Bring – Be sure to wear closed toe shoes. You can also bring your own helmet and pads (or use the ones provided). Wearing brightly colored clothing makes kids easy to spot and looks cool under the black lights.
Plan You Visit – Tickets can be purchased ahead of time but are not necessary. Check their calendar of events for hours and specials (Toddler Time).
