"Totally Casual, Dudes!"
Bump and grind takes on a different meaning in this concrete rich, spark throwing district of The Urbz: Sims in the City. Grab your board, throw on your baggy pants, and tuck the hat down as low as it’ll go – you’ve just broken through the barrier into Kicktail Park, the premier location for skateboarding fanatics and totally chill place to hang.
Grind on the fountain to impress the locals to get an invitation into Floater’s Air Bar, or take your board straight to the half-pipe out back to make some simoleans and maybe learn a new social move or three.
Kicktail Park is also the test location for a new chain: Major Monkey’s Ice Cream Emporium. I’d urge you to try a bar or two, or pay for the light show if you’ve got the extra cash. Dude, it’s all about the monkey.
The VIP Room in this area is known as Floater's Air Bar. To get in, you’ve gotta impress the locals with your board moves, be showing the right threads, and get your mood high enough so you don’t bring the party down. Once you’ve checked in here, you can hit the midnight party and kick it until the sun comes up.
If you still have a yen for Grunge you’ve come to the right place to buy the latest in retro. From flannelette shirts, cargo pants, tie-dyed t-shirts and torn jeans to unwashed hair you can hang down over your eyes.
Better still you can buy all kinds of items to turn your home sweet home into a skater’s dream. Prop up your shelves on cinderblocks, your table on milk crates and install an arcade machine in your lounge to relive your rose tinted college days.
Getting a reputation here will get you noticed by the residents of The Foundry.

Skid Mark runs the half pipe, so if you need a job talk to him, but if you want to learn some new social moves to help you fit in then seek out Alley Stile or Trang Hang.
