Brought my 9 year old daughter for a private lesson, which I joined in, with Elsie. We both loved it. Got there early really approachable staff. Elsie was fantastic she put us both, particularly me, at ease. My daughter loved it and we have booked to come back for one of the group sessions, highly recommended!

Gemstone of a place
Aug 2021 • Family
We came to Manchester for the weekend and after Skiing the day prior at Chill Factore, needed
Something for our 8 year old to do. We had planned to go to the museum of science and industry but hadn’t realised you needed to book and due to it being school holidays there were no tickets left. I called the skatepark hoping they had something available. They told me there was only a ‘home ed’ session on (which is a brilliant idea in itself) but as they were not at their numbers and it was only for the day they allowed my child to join. It took us a while to find but one we got there it did not disappoint. The staff were friendly and attentive from the people teaching my son to skateboard to the lovely lady serving a delicious latte. They had a great choice of food in their cafe with vegan options and these were being prepped on site. My son had an amazing time, the set up is brilliant and the atmosphere is relaxed they taught him the basics and were very patient with him. We would definitely book another visit for the next time we are down that way

Awesome first time skateboard coaching!
May 2021 • Family
Took my brother (12) to a private skateboarding lesson, with Olly. My brother had an awesome time and wants to come back asap!

Really friendly and approachable staff, lovely well stocked Cafe and large viewing area upstairs to watch.

I think I'll try it next time too!

Fab outdoor skatepark with great coaching
Dec 2020 • Solo
Without roller derby for the foreseeable, I wanted to learn some basics on a skateboard to get back on wheels and learn something new. I did some 1-1 coaching and then an adult coached session also. All were fantastic and really well pitched to suit me. Can’t recommend the coaching there enough. I’d also highlight that I was quite nervous about being out and around people again after all the lockdown/isolation and coaches (David and Vic) were both really patient and supportive around this. I felt I could be a total beginner in a supportive space and other people attending the adult coached session were really warm and friendly too. I’d definitely go back when lockdown restrictions allow and would recommend it to others.

Absolutely Terrible staff
Dec 2020 • Friends
So let me set the scene for you. It’s a dark, damp and dismal Wednesday evening. I finish work at 5:00pm, my train is at 5:15pm - I make a run for the train filled with joy in my heart. Despite the fact my train is one and a half hours, excitement fuels me. I arrive to the Projects MCR skatepark. I’m checked in, the excitement begins.

Then, it happens.
Upon arrival, a friend whom I will call “Jerry” has told me he’s been ordered to leave. A friend whom I love dearly. I didn’t understand why they had to leave, but they left. I will not see this person again for weeks.

Then,
I’m met by someone I do not know, to be told he’s known as “V”. I don’t know who Vic is, I’ve never met him. I couldn’t tell you a thing about him.
He approaches me.

Act one;
“You shouldn’t be skating here” he says, with not a polite mannerism within his dialogue. “Why?” I ask? “Because I’m running a skate school over there”... he proceeds to point to the complete opposite side of the skatepark. Now, it wasn’t to my knowledge that a skate lesson was taking place, but maybe I was there to join the skate lesson? He would’ve had no idea.

He begins to barrage me with verbal abuse saying how I shouldn’t be in the park, to which I politely told him “I’ve paid £10.50 to be here, there’s no disclaimer on your website telling me that this was a “training only” session” which it does not appear on the website at all.

Not only was I insulted, but I’ve recently came back from a lengthy injury with my right knee. My confidence is low, and I feel nervous skating in front of people on a good day, let alone when I’m nursing a damaged ligament. 

He proceeds to try to order me around. Again, I don’t know this man. I have no bounds to this man and have no obligation to listen to this man whom is being so outrageously disrespectful to me. Again, this was my FIRST EVER SESSION AT THIS SKATEPARK ONLY TO BE GREETED BY SHEER DISREGARD AND DISRESPECT BY A MEMBER OF “STAFF”.

Act two;
A friend shows up, I will call them “Trevor” as I don’t want to give their names in this review. They’re met with the same lack of respect as I was. They where told “you are sponsored, you cannot skate here.” To which Trevor replied “I’ve not been sponsored for a long time, and what does that matter anyway”?
Comments where made back and fourth, Trevor defending his right to skate since he’s paid the full amount as we all have, and V continuing to issue verbal scrutinise Trevor - I’m appalled by this and decide to leave the area.

Act three;
I’m skating, enjoying myself. No issues have occurred for a while. I start to film a friend whom I will call “Emanuel Hadoné”. As we’re skating, minding our own business, who happens to reappear? That’s right, it was V, again he moves DIRECTLY in front of the area we are skating with NO DISREGARD to anyone using the area that they’ve PAID TO USE. He tells us we have to move, as he’s now using the area.

We move.

I COUNTED THIS FIRST HAND (on my iPhone really, tehe)
Three minutes and twenty one seconds later. He leaves the area. 

Was it a power trip? I don’t know. By this time I don’t f*****g care. I’m just fed up that I’ve spent £10.50 and wasted over an hour and a half getting to a skatepark that I felt so much verbal abuse while attending.

Throughout my session, I felt him staring at me. Gazing over me with his eyes, watching my every move. It made me nervous, I had to step aside at one point. I’ve never felt so much pressure at a skatepark in my entire life.

To this man, who I will simply call V, as that’s your first initial, whomever you may be. You’re terrible and you make people feel totally uncomfortable at the skate park. How you’re allowed to teach classes and project some form of positivity to others is completely bewildering to me. I would never let a child of mine or a family member attend any of your classes, ever. The way you made me feel (a 29 year old male) was absolutely disposable. Although this is my review, I don’t want to speak on behalf of others at the park when this happened, but you made at least 6 people feel disgusted. It was even posted on social media about how terrible the atmosphere was at the park, and this is coming from a group of people who’ve skated Adrenaline Alley in Corby. Have you ever skated Adrenaline Alley, V? It’s like you’re being held prisoner, the atmosphere can sometimes be so overwhelming you have to leave.

Well, that’s how you made me feel. I won’t be visiting the park again simply down to how you (not only) spoke to me, but how you spoke to 6 of my friends. I hope you sort this out, because this isn’t the first one I’ve heard of numerous complains from your park. If you wish to contact me, please don’t, unless it’s another member of staff that I can have a well informed conversation with.



I hope you have a great new year and severely adjust your attitude before you lose even more of your clientele.



Yours sincerely.

Jimmy Laine.

Excellent tuition for beginners big and small
Dec 2020
Both my son and I are beginners.
Both coaches were very helpful and patient with my son and he is keen to return frequently.
I am a nervous adult skater of little experience. The Wednesday evening sessions are great for gently pottering about with the occasional fall and zero judgment from the more accomplished skaters. I've been back at very opportunity since my first.
A happy place to feel silly in.

Great Staff
Nov 2020 • Family
I have been coming to the park with my 9 year old for about a year now. The whole experience has been first class. Each and every coach and staff member are always polite, helpful and provide great support and coaching to my son: special mention to Vic and Elsie for their coaching sessions. Oh and the coffee and brownies are scrumptious. Hope the latest lockdown is temporary and doesn’t impact the park too much or for too long

Amazing - what an awesome facility !
Aug 2020 • Family
Super helpful staff !
Wonderful coffee in just perfect mugs ! Lol
Most importantly friendly atmosphere .
Came with my teen and her friend who just started skating in lockdown . Staff took the time to help them and the ramps are just brilliant for a beginner or improver .
Split into 2 sections , one more flat with bumps and small ramps the other looks kore advanced ( sorry I’m new to the terminology )
Feel very blessed to have this like 30 min drive from our home .
Highly highly recommend
Parents ( bring a coat if your watching as it’s a bit breezy!)

Appalling staff outburst
Feb 2020
Absolutely disgusting staff behaviour. As I was asked to take my beverage out of skatepark bounds I obliged instantly. Incidentally, I left my jacket in the park so I went to retrieve it, Johnny Rose proceeded to violently confront me exclaiming off the top of his voice “What did I just f-ing say” he manhandled me out of the skatepark getting very upset. I asked what kind of customer service is this and he responded “You’re a pr*ck” “you’ve been coming here being a pr*ck for 5 years”. He then later came back and tried to apologise blaming this ridiculous outburst on a bad day. With the nature of this attack of character, I find that to be a poor excuse.

There should be no tolerance for this un-hinged, ludicrous staff behaviour.
