Phil Tulba, one of Adrenaline Alley’s directors, said: “The idea for developing this third building at Adrenaline Alley started three years ago, and the building work started about eight weeks ago, so it’s great to see it come to fruition.

“Skate Hut, who made a major contribution to the facility, really understood what we are doing here and we’re grateful to them, as well as everyone else who helped or contributed.

“The feedback we get from kids all the time is that this is a great place to come.”

Phil said Adrenaline Alley was the largest park of its kind in Europe, stretching over six acres and with three buildings.

Dakota said he visits Adrenaline Alley about three times a year when he visits the UK from the US.

He added: “Skate Hut have done a really good job.

“As you can see today, there’s loads of kids here and it’s nice for them to have somewhere that’s safe. It’s a good place for the whole community.”
