Information for Parents

Parents are most welcome here at Rush. It’s free of charge to visit as a spectator, unless you’re attending a paying event. Younger children are welcome too. But please keep them with you at all times. It gets very busy here – and we want to keep everyone safe – so please treat the skatepark and yourselves with respect. Any children found running around or sliding down the ramps will be asked to leave.

If you have to accompany your child into the park during an Open Session please call us in advance on 01453 889457 or ask to speak with Duty Park Manager when you arrive and one of us will find a session that better matches their age and ability.

Parent's Lounge

As parents ourselves, we know how exhausting and time consuming it can be running round after our little darlings. That's why we have a Parent's Lounge – to make your visit as comfortable as possible – where you'll find:

  • 80" screen – keep an eye on your kids while relaxing with a cuppa or something nice to eat from our cafe
  • Comfy sofas and armchairs – snuggle up and read a book or have a natter
  • Free WiFi – catch up with work or social media
  • Outside seating area – catch some rays outside when the weather's nice
  • Coming Soon: Parent's Snug – the park gets really cold during the winter months. Plans are being drawn up for a Parent's Snug. In the meantime please wrap up warm.

Complete a consent form

All parents and guardians must complete an emergency contact and consent form for each child who visits the park – feel free to download it from here to save time. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult. Children over 12 are welcome to visit the park on their own. But we cannot be held responsible for them in your absence.

Safety & Injuries

The skatepark is supervised by at least two fully first aid trained marshals at all times.

Most of the knocks and bumps we see are superficial. But sometimes they require further attention. When an injury occurs, our first aiders will assess the situation and decide if further medical attention is needed. At this point we’ll come and find you. If we can’t track you down in the park we’ll use the emergency contact details you supplied on the consent form. If we still can’t get hold of you, we’ll exercise our best judgment for treating an injured child.

If your child is involved in an accident please let a First Aid trained Marshal know first. They will assess the situation and call an ambulance if one is needed. All our Marshals are fully trained to assess these kind of situations and deal with the Ambulance Service.

Please make sure the information you supply on your Consent Form is accurate. No one is better at comforting an injured child than their own parent or guardian.

Please see our helmet policy here: Note that helmets are compulsory for all riders under 18 and for all riders when using the foam pit/ pump track or resi ramp areas. 

Lost Property

We keep all lost property for two weeks. Any items that remain unclaimed after this time will be donated to charity. If you or your kids think you've left something at the park please give us a call on 01453 889457 and we'll do our best to track it down for you.
