Iconx Indoor Skatepark
For many years, Iconx has been the premier purveyor of skateboarding products for Shanghai and greater China, and is now bringing you the first-ever indoor skate park in Shanghai. Located at 1594 Longwu Rd in Xuhui, Shanghai, the Iconx Indoor Skatepark is a year-round park, catering to skateboarders of all levels and ages.
While the park is still in the works, it currently features a glassy-smooth semi-polished concrete floor, a perfect 5’ mini ramp, a wide assortment of boxes in various sizes and lengths, a street section with both round and square handrails, a super fun 2-flat-2 double set, a small hubba, a steep bank to slappy feature and much more coming.
The indoor skatepark is open on Tuesdays & Thursdays 6:30-9 PM and Saturdays & Sundays from 5-8 PM for open skate. Sessions are 50 RMB, or 25 RMB after purchasing the 100 RMB annual membership. If you don’t want to pay each time you come skate, there’s the unlimited annual membership for 650 RMB which gets you into every open session for 1 year.
LET’S START OFF WITH THE RULES
No one really likes rules, but to keep things safe and orderly, we please ask that you adhere to the following:
You must wear a helmet. If you don’t have a helmet, you can borrow one from us for the session. If you’re a beginner, or are looking for some extra reassurance, we’d recommend wearing knee pads, elbow pads and wrist guards.
No smoking in the park. If you’re going to smoke, please do it outside.
Make sure you respect the the Iconx Indoor Skatepark and everyone using it. Be aware of your surroundings and try not to drop in on anyone! Also, one skater on the mini-ramp at a time.
Everyone must sign a waiver on their first visit. If you’re under 18, you must have it signed by a parent or legal guardian. Once your waiver is on file, all you have to do is give us your name and you’ll be all set to skate for future sessions.
At the moment, BMX bikes are not permitted in the skatepark – our apologies. The park has been designed to accommodate skateboarders and for the safety of everyone using the park, we have to restrict BMX access. Sorry about that.
We need you to stay hydrated! It gets super humid here and if you’re like me, your tee shirt is probably going to be soaked within the hour…especially during the upcoming summer months. If you drink water or some sort of sports drink throughout your session, you’ll skate better. Trust me. Your body needs to stay hydrated. If you neglect drinking, you’ll probably cramp up and it’ll definitely affect your skating. Also, hydrating is more affective if done regularly during activity. Try to avoid skating for 2 hours only to realize you haven’t taken a sip of water.
