Once all of the ordinary kid-friendly events in Pittsburgh have run their course, check out Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark in Pittsburgh. Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark is located just minutes outside of Pittsburgh’s North Side on Perry Highway.  I first visited the skatepark during a birthday party for a fellow Brown Mamas’ son and my boys had a blast.  The 33,000 square foot space is filled with ramps and rails that your kids can “skate” up & down.  Now this isn’t your traditional skating experience.  Kid’s strap on their shoe slides and actually glide down ramps in a glow-in-the-dark arena.  (No learning curve required)

A 2-hour skate session cost $11.99 per person.  The highlight of our trip was the additional activities offered at the Pittsburgh Skatepark.  Dodgeball, mini-golf, bouncy houses and a Ninja obstacle course are all available with an activity ticket that cost $2.99.  And if you’re wondering, a non-skater pass (for mamas with bad knees like mines) is just $1.49.  Mackell & Phillip’s favorite part was the Ninja obstacle course.  They love to race and run naturally.  The timed course includes running through a “muddy” pit, going through a leveled tunnel and making your way across a narrow ramp while holding on to the wall.  They had a blast!


During Christmas break, visit Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark and mention this Brown Mamas post to receive $3 off your skate session.  The skatepark has recently added some new sessions too.
