I received free admission to FunSlides Carpet Skatepark through US Family Guide in order to complete a review. Any opinions expressed are my own.
We’ve been to Fun Slides Carpet Skatepark in the past but it was when they still had the Greensburg location. So when we had the chance to try the location in Pittsburgh, the kids were pretty excited. This time around my daughter was old enough to give it ago. We love Funslides for a rainy or cold day boredom buster. It’s something different to do, get the kids away from electronics, and gets them active.
Funslides Carpet Skatepark outfits you with Funslide skates that allow you to slide along the carpets and down the ramps. They also have body slides you can use like my middle son in the picture above. They also had smaller ones we referred to as “butt scoots”to sit and go down the ramps. There were ramps of different sizes for beginners to more experienced.

They also had a dodgeball court, a timed challenge course (think ninja warrior-esque), and a bounce house. Those areas needed additional ticket purchases to use them. The dodgeball we were not able to use due to a birthday party on the same day. We went on a Saturday which was pretty busy. If you have the opportunity, going on a weekday is a little less busy.
Even without that the kids were able to entertain themselves for nearly 2 hours before they started running out of steam.
Funslides Carpet Skatepark is fun place to book your kids birthday parties. Even preteens have a blast at Funslides. You can also book STEM field trips for grades 3-5. Your school or homeschool group can learn Isaac’s 3 Laws of Motion, the force of friction, balanced forces vs unbalanced forces, and more. Book your class STEM field trip
I even tried out some of the ramps. I got a little braver as I got more and more used to it. Some of the ramps seemed steep to me! The older boys loved it. The littler ones stood for the smaller ramps and used the body slides or “butt scoots” for the bigger ramps.
