30 years ago . .

I shot this at the Rolling Magic Skate Park in Overland Park soon after it opened c.1979. I sold this image to the park and they used it in their print advertising. The management had me provide a liability waiver before they would allow me to shoot inside the park. I was there every week that summer.

Rolling Magic lasted only a couple of years before insurance costs forced it to close. There's nothing left of it today.


  1. insurance costs did not close it. The owner did not pay his bills and had his assets frozen. He did not pay the employees there final checks which I am still pissed off about. I loved working there though.

    1. I'm trying to get a reunion together to meet in the Rolling Magic parking lot - it's still there. thx for the great info !!
      any more photos e-mail: , that photo is excellent quality and great action. I'd pay for more like that - no problem.
