Welcome to the 5th year at The Fort Wayne Indoor!  We are proud that we have worked hard and built the park to what it is over the past 5 years.  Dan Butler & I (Rich Hoppe) want to thank each and everyone who has supported the FWI over this length of time.  We thank all the individuals, as well as all of the local business community for supporting something that we believe every single community needs.   

We have another incredible season planned and our 1st party is on 10.19.18 as well blow open the doors for yet another season of indoor action sports as mother nature turns cold once again over the long winter months.   

Make sure you sign our ONLINE WAIVER before you come to the park. If 
under 18 YEARS OF AGE a parent or legal guardian must sign.

We look forward to seeing all of you in just a few very short weeks for the 2019 Season.  Scooters & Quads welcome to ride any Mixed Sessions.

If you missed The Fort Wayne Indoor Fall Bash Parking Lot Party, then you missed out on one of the best events ever to hit this side of Waynedale since ET last showing there!  Sunday September 16, 2018 we took over the brand spanking new Clyde Theaters parking lot to share our message of Art, Community, Music, Culture, Food, Friends, Family, Bikes, and Skateboards.

The past 2 years the fundraiser has been held at the Lawton Skatepark in downtown Fort Wayne.  This year, with the hard work and relentless work ethic of a man determined to make his dreams a reality The Clyde Theater founder, Rick Kinney was able to pull off a 9 Million Dollar Upgrade to this one-of-a-kind gem on the city’s South East side.  Rick and I had a conversation about 5 or 6 years ago about doing an event like this, and sure enough here we were doing this event in real life!

Over the past 5 years Dan Butler and I have been engaged and working on relationships with people right here in our community. Folks who believe in the type of work we are doing and most importantly, the young minds we are helping mold by providing a unique place like the Fort Wayne Indoor Skatepark for humans all over our entire region.  I’m talking about partnerships with great local companies that help make a difference in the community where we live, work, and play.

DJ Dap-One one scene to drop the beats all afternoon!

Live Art Demonstration by Northside Galleries

We added a brand new experience to this years party in the form of a live art demonstration.  The four artists that you see pictured below, spent most their time on this Sunday painting this beautiful canvas artwork, each having a role in all 4 canvases.  They were essentially playing musical chairs with each canvas.  Once all the painting was over we held an auction where 4 lucky folks got to take home a piece of history created that very same day!  Thank You to all 4 of these radical human beings for volunteering to show some Fort Wayne Indoor love!

The 2018 X-Games – Minneapolis, MN

This year with the massive effort on the behalf of Harley-Davidson Fort Wayne, we sent two incredibly lucky kids to the X-Games!  The winners from this past springs video contest termed “The X-Games Experience” got the attention of a few local skateboarding and BMX’ers who then battled it out on YouTube to see who would prevail in the 1st ever X-Games Experience powered by HDFW!

The trip included round trip flights for both the winners and one parent, Link chose his mother Maureen while Aiden’s father made the trek to the Fort Wayne Airport for an early flight out directly to Minneapolis, MN to observe the 2018 X-Games VIP Style!  HDFW picked up the flights for the winners and stepped Dan and I’s game up by hooking us up with VIP passes,  and a place to crash at the same hotel. HDFW RULES!

We all ended up on national television a few times over the weekend!

Dan and I were as stoked as the kids were, it was our 1st time to X-Games also.   We started out by meeting up at our designated hotel to ensure that everyone knew where home base was located and try to familiarize ourselves with beautiful downtown Minneapolis, MN.
