Maybe thats where we would find you Bob, but they have a sweet dual slalom pump track also. It would be sick to check the place out. Look for that latest mag that had an article on it. All were digging it...not literally...

werd! Im one of the original founders so I can probably give you as much biased information as you'd like about the place. one thing is for sure, its anything but slow. basically we've got everything from from slow tech skinnes to superfast jump lines that'll send ya. we've also got a full park section that we've been riding for a couple years now and still coming up with new lines. foam pit, good vibe, and now, even an xc loop now that runs up and down through the rafters. all told, about 73,000 sf of fun.

c'mon out and make sure you ask for scott (that would be me) and i'll show you around and give you the royal treatment (no Bob, its not what you're thinking!, it means you can buy me a beer after riding :p )

seriously, it seems like everyone that rides there is just so stoked on the place, even top pros like Strait, Zink, Goldman, and Lopes. if it works for those guys to have fun, Im guessing it would work for anybody.

Wow, that place looks really cool. I wish i was a little closer to Cleveland tho. What leads into the foam pit, some jumps? That sounds like a lot of fun.:p It looks like there's a place for evryone, from beginners to experts. Sounds really fun.

Ray's is awesome and 5 miles from my house!!! The Holiday in on 71 and w150th is a good bet. Close to the airport and Rays.

This place looks insane...

I really want to go there. One question though: would I be out of place if I brought my dual-suspension? From all the videos I've seen (on youtube and on ray's website) it looks like all of the riders are using hard tail frames. We all know how pretentious "skate park kids" can be.

If all you have is dual squishy then by all means ride it, plenty of people use them there. You might want to stiffen up your rear shock though.
Yeah, I'd imagine that it would squish a bit while riding, you know, like on the pump track. Any suggestions on tires? Do you think a semi-slick would roll better at an indoor park?

I have used everything from Kiniptions and Krads to Nevegals. K-Rads are pretty good and cheap. Kiniptions are very fast but expensive and work great in the skatepark.

If I was going to ride everything then I would just buy some Krads.

Everytime I'm been there it's been on K-Rads, but then I ride those everywhere. If you plan on riding the jumps and skatepark section the most you'd like the fast rolling of K-Rads, Holy Rollers, Moto RTs, Launches, and similar tires. If you plan on spending most of your time riding slower on the skinnies and bridges, keep your current tires. I highly recommend riding platform/flat pedals on the stunts, click-ins (clipless sounds stupid to me) are fine for the XC loop.

Thanks for all the info. I'm actually thinking about building up a hard tail for the occasion. You know, something that I wouldn't mind slamming a few times.
