Here you have our favorite indoor BMX parks in the US:
1. Dayton Indoor BMX Park
Dayton’s Indoor BMX Park is open at 1300 East 1st Street. Called labor of love by volunteers shepherding this project from start to finish, BMXers enjoy 50,000 square feet of space amid walls covered with graffiti art as they master jumps, ramps, and rollers.

Parents take advantage of free Wi-Fi and TV in the lounge if they prefer not to watch. Don’t have a BMX? No problem. Rent one. Pay between $10 and $20 for admission, don a wristband and enjoy an entire day of fun. Spring for the facility’s $200 unlimited ride pass and ride as often as you like until it expires in September.
2. Fort Wayne Indoor Skatepark
When the Indiana city’s only facility welcoming BMXers and skaters shut down in 2014, a consortium of enthusiasts, community members, and families came to the rescue by launching Fort Wayne Indoor, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing a winter refuge for displaced daredevils.

3. B-LINE Indoor Bike Park
BMXers living in Ontario, Canada, began to take pride in the sophisticated design and amenities available to skaters and bikers at this venue when it opened in 2017. The front area is dedicated to providing challenges for beginners.
Four progressive jump lines are color-coded to indicate which are meant for beginners, intermediates, advanced and expert athletes. There’s a pro shop on-site, plus party areas and locker rooms under the roof at Unit 6-401 33rd Street NE, Calgary. This page details 2021 hours of operation and pricing.
4. Peninsula Indoor BMX
Located at 5920 Dogwood Road SE in Port Orchard, Washington State, this indoor sports palace has remained open on and off in response to the community’s COVID-19 advisories. As a result, BMXers know the drill: They can sign up online and take a couple of gate practice sessions on Wednesday evenings between 5:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

Additionally, online signups allow enthusiasts to participate in Friday, Saturday, and Sunday racing events, but only those with full USA BMX memberships can join the fun. The more family members joining up, the lower the fee for individuals. Sign up now if you would like to be one of them.
5. Steelwheels Indoor BMX Park
One visit to Hobart Indiana’s Steelwheels Indoor BMX Park’s Facebook page tells you everything you want to know about this venue located at 709 North Hobart Road. For 2021, you will need a USBMX membership to participate in races at this facility, held every Saturday and Thursday. Depending upon the day and activity, you’ll pay either a $10 or $15 admission fee.
There are sign-up deadlines associated with all sessions, so consult the web page for specifics. This facility offers open classes, balance bikes, and special parent race rates, so there are deals to be had despite the limited number of hours this indoor track is open for business.
6. Joyride 150 Indoor Bike Park
Take the virtual facility tour to see the vast number of opportunities BMXers of all ages will find at this Ontario Canada, indoor bike park located at 150 Bullock Drive in Markam. Winter sessions are being held at the facility from Monday through Saturday, including both daytime and evening hours.
This facility doesn’t offer pre-paid memberships. Thus, BMXers pay a specific fee for a day of activity based on age and the day of the week (weekends are pricier). Joyride invites you to rent everything from bikes to helmets and pads if you don’t own your gear, so if you’re a newbie, this is a great way to see if you like the experience.
7. The Wheel Mill Park
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s The Wheel Mill is an 80,000-square-foot park lavished with ramps and trails that are “as organic as possible.” Nearly 75 percent of the facility’s build-outs and challenges are crafted of reclaimed lumber and natural materials, so carpenters and woodworkers are urged to check this place out, too.

Take private or group lessons depending upon your skill level, and Air Rec also specializes in parties and private events, so if your kid’s birthday is coming, you can rent the entire place to entertain his BMX peers. Open seven days a week, you’ll have to check the schedule to hone in on hours of operation and the varying admission fee schedule.
9. D-Block Indoor Skate Park
Unearthing information about this Clackamas, Oregon, skate park could require Sherlock Holmes’s skills because the facility, located at 8921 SE Jannsen Road, provides limited information to browsers online. D-Block’s website informs visitors that the tricked-out terrain is constructed of wood and Masonite. A virtual tour of graffiti-lined walls within this privately-owned facility is impressive, so take a look.
If a small, private venue appeals to you, visit the website to find the park’s fee structure and hours of operation. Once you locate it, ensure you’ve brought your skates, boards, and wheels since this is a bare-bones operation. Kids under age 18 must wear helmets and pads, or they can’t participate in activities.
10. Rye Airfield Skate & Bike Park
Let’s say that you live in New England and you love skating and BMX so much; your dream has always been to own a park of your own. That day has come. What was once called New England’s Premier Skate & Bike Park, Rye Airfield Skate & Bike Park, is on the market. Interested?
Drive by the facility at 6 Airfield Drive in Rye, New Hampshire, to glimpse the building that was once a thriving business before owners decided that the time had come to move on.
