Get ready 'cos here I come


I'm imagining a typical conversation between a husband and wife.


'Hey there's not a lot around here for kids to do so I've been thinking how about we build an enormous indoor skate park with ramps and jumps of all sizes?'

The husband replies 'Sure, why not? I feel like a roast for dinner how about you?

'Why not?'

At a nearby school a conversation between two children goes something like this:

'What does your mum do?

' Well she used to work as a teacher aide but now she just has three jobs. She's just built a meganormous indoor skate park.'

'Yeah sure.'

There's something very special about Anna


That mum and wife is amazing Anna. This is not a fictitious story, She really does do all these and with a broad smile and a heart warming personality.

Luckily she has lots of time because she only has four children. She cleverly chose a handy husband who used to be a builder and he has run his own café.

I think Anna's next business venture should be motivational speeches for aspiring women entrepreneurs and I've even go to title: Have fun turning great ideas into profitable community services.

Lots of challenges


I'm not really sure how she could be making any money but it looks like everyone at Rampit is having a ball.

Anna told me that when her boys were younger they used to go to Ramp fest and outdoor skate parks but this was a long drive. So she set up her own skate park in Mitcham - as you do - but has now been at Bayswater for one year. They still decorating the venue and get help from the local graffiti artists.

Graffiti artists only too keen to help


The park caters for riders of all levels of skill and experience, with different sized quarters, rails, boxes, hubbas, gaps and street section.

Rampit attracts a lot of scooters particularly during the day. The regulars are between 10 and 15 years old. Sometimes kids are dropped off and picked up later but this is a family oriented activity and often dads and the sons come together. I noticed a four-wheel-drive arrive with a bunch of mates. I remember when I used to do the late night carpooling to Rampit.

It looks higher from up here!


They are expecting their new stunt air bags to arrive soon so this is sure to attract more teens. This will be the first skate park in Australia to have these special stunt air bags.

When you arrive at Rampit you will need to sign a permission and waiver form. Other than that I did not notice any expected rules board. The children seem to have sorted out the rules and systems to avoid casualties. I noticed Anna and Nick doing helmet checks.

Cheap fuel food


Café and Shop

Ramp it also has a café with all hot food under four dollars. This includes pizza, pies, pasties, hot dogs and sausage rolls. They also sell tea and coffee, ice cream, chips and lollies. They hope to be able to provide fresh sandwiches soon.

While you are there have a look at their line of merchandise they are developing.

Rampit Parties

I would highly recommend ramp it for a party. Unlike many expensive party venues, you only pay for those who attend…there is no minimum number requirement!

The Rampit Party Food Package is $25.00 (per Child). This includes 4 hours of riding, private Party Room, hot food, a can of soft drink, fruit juice or bottled water, ice cream or icy pole and a lolly bag for each child.

Children can choose from a Four 'n' Twenty pie, King size sausage roll, pastie. hot dog or 3 Steamed Dim Sims. Potato chips and unlimited water is provided at the table. There is also a self catered option which is only $19.00 per child. In this option no food or drink are provided but you can stay and ride for up to 4 hours.

So if your son or daughter are riders, there is no excuse, you just have to give it a go. Even from an adult's point of view this is a really cool place. I had to stop myself from spinning the line to my kids 'You are so lucky'. In my days we never had anything like this!

And… if that's not enough….on Cheap Tuesday you can ride for just 
$10 for 4 hours. And if something goes wrong they have repair kits and equipment to fix your bike, scooter and skateboards.
