SkateIDSA is proud to announce a 3-day event in Atlantic City, New Jersey at the Showboat Hotel. This 10 story parking garage event will feature 2 days of skate sessions for riding the garage, an Open Class Race for less experienced riders and a Pro Class Race for those that prefer Mayhem! The top 4 finishers from the Open Class on Saturday will be rewarded with a spot into the Pro Class Mayhem Race on Sunday.
There will also be a Slalom Shootout where racers get to take 3 shots at a hybrid type slalom course to record their fastest single time. There will be an identical practice course set up (without a timer) for riders to hone their skills before taking their 3 shots for real. This will be set up for 4 hours on Friday and 4 hours on Saturday.
The Uphill Race will be a mass start and in true Atlantic City style, we’ll roll the dice to determine how many stories to push up to the top (at least 2) and then turn around to race 10 stories down.
Norstep Productions will be providing 3 local bands to play on the roof top on Saturday the 7th from 4pm-8pm and registered skaters will get to enjoy the music for free as part of the event.
We have arranged a special rate with the Showboat Hotel of $139 per night and $79 for Thursday and Sunday for a double room (sleeps 2-4). The Showboat is right on the boardwalk which means hours of beach fun and boardwalk cruising as well so bring swim trunks! The Showboat has 2 restaurants, an in house Deli, a couple of bars and it’s right next to the Hard Rock Casino. Imagine not having to rent a car or drive between your hotel and the event venue! This will help everyone to maximize their ride time and be able to skate until noodle legs set in. Then just jump into the elevator and you’re back in your room!
This group rate is valid until 12:00 am on 8/4/19, after that they will give you the best available rate. We encourage everyone to consider booking a room here for at least one night to show our appreciation in hopes of being able to do this again! The reservation # is (855) 212-0201 and our group code to receive the discount is IDSA19
