The skate park boasts many transition and street obtacles including ledges, stairs, a fun box, pyramid, two quarterpipes, death ramp, as well as Puddy's mini-ramp and the new manual pad ledge feature.
The 25m x 55m roller rink, furnished with Sports Court, is ideal for skaters, bladers and riders of all ages and skill levels. Thrashers is home to the Pretoria Capitals inline hockey club, and P-Town Roller Derby, who train on the court each week. Please get in touch with us to find out how you can get involved!
Alleyoop is situated within Thrashers and is the only core skate shop in Gauteng. If you are looking for great prices on boards, trucks, wheels, hardware, and anything skateboarding - we have it! If we don't we can order it for you.
Darkslide Cafe is the newest addition to Thrashers' offering; serving delicious meals, including the famous cheeseburger slider with Chef Kieran's hand cut fries, you will definitely be returning for more! Please contact us for Darkslide's catering menu and keep a look out for special event items - they're not to be missed!
We also have a kiosk with cold drinks and snacks for the slightly peckish.
Thrashers was built in 1996, making it one of the oldest skate parks in South Africa. It has been home to many of South Africa's skateboarding legends past and present and has become an institution in the Pretoria skate/alternative scene.
Recently refurbished, we offer a thorough skating experience as well as the perfect venue for a day out with the whole family; where you are encouraged to ride, skate, chill, grab a bite, check out specials in the skate shop or just lay out on the grass - so bring your camping chairs and your choms, we look forward to welcoming you to our little slice of heaven!
We host competitions and live music events regularly - follow us to stay updated!
We offer skateboarding and rollerblading lessons on Saturdays - by appointment only. Please contact us to make your booking today!
