Next to this is a raised level that has a hubba and rail and spined onto the back side is a quarter pipe that opens up into the rest of the skateable area. Following this is a bowled area with a massive vert wall and another bowled area, also with a massive vert wall.
Hall 2 is larger and features both a transition section and small street section as well.
