Comment on Skegness SkatePark by Skeggy Resident.
You said “I don’t think you understand how most skateparks work”
How little you know, Yes I do Know how these places work and if X-site can’t make money from a popular activity then their doing something wrong. X-Site made a profit in 2009, so I think you don’t understand businesses taking advantage of a seaside holiday location.
You also said “To be fair their prices are very reasonable compared to most purpose built facilities”
Here’s an example for you why X-Site is so expensive compared to other skateparks around the country.

look at that Google’s an amazing tool, first two I came across is better than X-Site, you can find out everything you need from the click of a button. The last example I gave is the type of price and membership you should be looking at when X-Site has charity status for children living in the PE25 postcode
