Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My boy has been come for 3 years and he’s 5 now. Most of the riders know him and are always kind enough to take the time to help him and give him tips. Some pros have taken him under their wing and the whole community likes to help. The staff are great and I can’t think of another sport more communal to help bring your kid confidence and build fitness and social skills.
He wants to go every weekend and I’m happy to oblige. Great place..

Louis was a lovely man I put my bike into service and it came out better than I thought you can find him at revitalised repair.

We had two amazing trips to The Source this summer. We took our two boys ages 7 & 9 for a private BMX lesson and were not disappointed. The boys met Kaitlyn their instructor and she immediately gained hero status. Kaitlyn was not only super friendly and fun but incredibly professional, patient and talented. They had a super time, in fact so much so that when they found out that Kaitlyn was actually a skateboarder by passion they begged to go back and have a skating lesson. Our youngest had never been skateboarding before and went from a newbie to quite a proficient little skater in a few hours, so a big shout out to Kaitlyn for her hard work and amazing instruction. The boys think you are awesome.

The Source is a great place to take kids interested in BMX, skateboarding or scootering with two brilliant parks to tackle, with access to a great food court it's a good place to stop for lunch or snacks after. Our time spent at The Source has proven to be the kids highlight of their trip back to the UK and we will certainly stop in again next year. Thanks to the entire team for making our visit most enjoyable. They also have a great shop for those wanting to buy their own equipment.

The service we recieved from the staff especially Joe was outstanding. He is a credit to the store. He was patient, kind & knowledgeable with a very unprepared Mum. He was friendly & made me feel at ease as well as making my 12 year old son feel awesome about himself & his choice. So thank you for making a nervous situation really easy & calm.
Highly recommend

I have been taking my 11yr old son and his friends to the Source Park for many years and he absolutely loves it there. The staff are always so friendly and helpful and the users of the park are always kind and considerate to others especially the younger kids often helping teach skills and give pointers.
We we visited a couple of weeks ago and Gary one of the staff managers was so patient and helpful in putting new grips on my sons BMX and Scooter. Anyone who has fitted grips knows they can be a real pain. Despite this Gary took the time to help my son and was very friendly and cheerful, staying on longer than than his shift to ensure the grips were on properly. Thank you!

Friendly staff and amazing park. Went for a skate and there is something for all abilities. All wooden ramps and street sections. We were there for a good hour and started chatting to one of the marshals (didn’t get his name) about wanting to find a good small mini ramp to learn some technical tricks on (tech for me lol, blunts). The plaza was mentioned, of which I had no idea it was in the same complex. Off we went and another world was opened up.

Can’t wait to go back…most likely tomorrow :-)
