A view from the suites on the second floor of KTR.

KTR Indoor Action Sports Playground is now open at The Pavilions at Talking Stick in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.

This is the third location in the KTR franchise; the other two locations are in Mesa and Chandler. KTR is an indoor playground equipped with a skate park, air floors, spring floors, airbags, trampolines and a café. Everyone from age 2 to adult is welcome to come in and enjoy the facilities.

Kids were challenging each other on flips they could do. Tumblers were waiting for instructions on their demonstration during the week-long grand opening. July 22-26.
Clinics are held to teach tumbling, parkour, skateboarding and scootering. Six party suites are located upstairs and can be rented by parties or groups for any special occasion. Different party packages for birthday parties are also available. There’s a café to grab a quick snack. Adults can bring their laptops to sit and relax, or they are more than welcome to participate with their kids. KTR has an outdoor vibe, with life-size artificial trees and floor mats with grass printed on them. A retail shop is located at the front that sells and rents scooters and skateboards.

The Block Cafe offers a variety of refreshments.
“We’re glad it’s open,” KTR Business Manager Skip Whatcott said. “From what we’ve seen so far, everybody who’s come has enjoyed it. We’ve had some who have come almost daily; it’s a good place to have fun. We’ve been open about three weeks. [For the grand opening,] every day we have something going on, some type of demonstration. It could be skateboards, scooters, trampolines, to ninja warriors. It can cater to any area in here.”
