A new indoor amusement park has just recently opened its doors in Regina. SkyPark is a family friendly indoor amusement park for people of all ages. Activities include a rope course and rock climbing wall, mini-golf, a soft play area, and go-karts. The brand new business opened its doors for the first time on Feb. 20 and will be celebrating its grand opening on Feb. 27.
Co-owner Camille Tran described the place as “a place for families to go and interact with each other.” She said the place is perfect for birthday parties and a great place to challenge yourselves.
The go-karts, which aren’t open as part of the soft launch, go up to 60km/h. Participants must be at least 10 years of age and 44 inches tall. There is a maximum height of seven feet and a weight limit of 450 pounds. Once the go-karts open on the 27th, the Tran family will celebrate the spaces’ grand opening. The karts have all the safety check marks and are operating functionally during test runs.
There are 18 rock climbing walls, each with a different colourful design. Tran described them as “easier climbing walls so that you can reach the top. “They are a great workout and really test your mental and physical strength,” said Tran.
There is a high ropes course with 27 different games. There is a first level and a second level. The first level is great for challenging family members Tran said. Once you get to the second level you zipline across from one platform to another.
The mini-golf course contains 18 holes. The holes are farm themed to represent Saskatchewan. The course varies in difficulty and is perfect for all ages according to Tran.
SkyPark also sells poutine, chicken fingers, popcorn and hot dogs along with a variety of beverages including coffee and tea.
There is a soft play area for toddlers which requires parental supervision at all times.
“I think the biggest concern is controlling how many people are under our roof to ensure that it’s safe,” said Tran. “Safety is really number one. We’re looking at every single angle to ensure everyone has a safe, enjoyable time.”
SkyPark hired a company from BC called HPCW to ensure safety standards are met. “They are the top of the line best equipment that you can get onto the market today,” said Tran.
When asked about their opening weekend launch Tran said “It was really nice because their wasn’t an overflow of people.” We had to turn away some people from the soft play area but it was a really nice slow triggle of people,” said Tran.”
“Regina has thanked us for bringing this,” said Tran. We have had such a positive response, everybody just keeps saying wow.”
“My husband Kenny and my kids thought of the idea… He had a vision in his mind and this building was one of our options and once that door opened it was like a domino effect and everything just came into place,” said Tran.
SkyPark is located at the old Leader-Post building. “This is such an iconic building and we are thankful that we had the opportunity to get this building because of its granger and the structure,” said Tran.
SkyPark is located at 545 12th avenue east in Regina, Saskatchewan. Mini-golf and the soft play area are open from 9am-9pm seven days a week. Go-karts, rock climbing wall and the high ropes/zipline are open from 1-9pm Monday to Friday and 10am-9pm on the weekend.
