The construction of the new skate park for this year's Pannonian Challenge XVII

The one and only park like this in Southeast Europe

We’re pretty sure that by now everybody knows that Pannonian Challenge is a part of the FISE World Series. For that reason, early this April started the construction of the most modern skate park in this region.

The construction plan was made in cooperation with the riders and that’s why it is now ideal for skaters as well. The main difference between the old skate park and the new one is its size and elements. Elements were combined, the angles of the old ones were changed and some new elements were added such as two new step ups, four rails, a rooftop, another miniramp, jump boxes, ledges, and others. All of those components are now closer to each other in order to increase the adrenalin and the dynamics of the ride itself. With these changes, more BMX styles fit in, precisely park and street. Park was constructed in cycles in order to easily achieve flow while doing stunts and also without any delay.

The most exciting thing for skate discipline are ledges (for those who don’t know, those are small walls), banks, rails and a mini ramp and the fact that now all those obstacles are closer to each other, gaining skaters extra drive while performing their high flying tricks.

The old park was mostly based on basic ramps, no less important for a good show. Surely, there’s still a pyramid, spine, big quarter, jump boxes and ledges. Even though the park is full of obstacles it is still large enough what enables free and big running start for achieving speed.

This year we are expecting rollerbladers to be all over skate park, skaters jumping sky high and BMX riders doing their acrobatics high up in the air. The drafts alone left everyone stunned, so we shouldn’t be surprised, this year’s skate park will definitely be praised in the long run, because its ramps, new ones and old ones, will host some of the world’s best riders.

This park is surely worthy of that, as a skate park of the biggest extreme festival in southeastern Europe.
