Transition/street
Features:
Ramps, rails, banks, funbox, large bowl
Arrowtown is a small, former gold-mining town, situated in Otago region, in the South Island, New Zealand. It is only 20 minutes drive from Queenstown (connected through Shotover Gorge) and lies on the banks of Arrow River, one of the richest sources of gold in the 1860's.

It hosts many houses, where immigrants from Europe and China used to live back in the era of gold-mining. Arrowtown and the surrounding area was the setting for the legendary films Lord of the Rings trilogy and X-Men Origins. It has four distinct seasons, offering great opportunities for various activities.

Skateboarding lovers can visit the Arrowtown Skate-park. It has several concrete ramps, rails, banks, a fun-box and a large bowl, and is thus perfect for transition and street skating.

Slide on the rails, make your jumps and ollies off the ramps and land back again on your board, do stunning kick-flips and drop-ins. Buy or take your skateboard with you and get ready to perform amazing tricks up in the air!
