I live in New England and I can feel your pain. There's Junction skate park in West Springfield but depending on how long the drive there would be, i dont know how "worthwhile" it is. There's also a Boys and Girls Club in Brattleborro Vermont that has an all ages skate night with a free meal on Tuesdays. Other then that i cant think of anywhere that hasn't already been said.

he's talking about edge for sure. I saw pictures of this place in New Haven, ct but I think they closed down. Rad park is cool in its own right, too. I want to see how they bowled out the mini ramp. I've heard of plaza in Vermont as well, but indoor parks here don't seem to last more than a few years. Granite park lasted maybe a single winter?

yeah, i forgot the name but you guys are correct. my pal said good things about RAD and they're open til midnight on wkends but i haven't been. subliminal has a good setup but sometimes it's full of kids all over the good setup [all up on the bank to ledge]. it's a dream though compared to how wet and cold it's been.

Rye is pretty far from Boston but well worth the trip. You said you wanted vert and bowls so Rye is your only real option

Visit Pioneers on the way back, and tell them I said hello

Plaza in Rutland, VT looks dope but there's support poles all over the place that i hear makes it annoying. still looks dope. no poles in the bowl.

i hit rye up at least once a week already. I was seeing if there were any decent others, but a lot of places seem to close shortly after opening

Orchard has a ramp you can skate for free, with a signed  waiver.

There's an indoor park on Cape Cod as well. Kinda small, but decent miniramp.

Subliminal is great.

There's also Greenside in Rhode Island too.

Talent is nay worth the drive if you live closer to Rye/Skater's Edge, it's pretty small and can get really crowded. Subliminal, Red Alert & Junction are good as well. Don't make the trek all the way to Brattleboro for the Boy's and Girl's Club unless you're under 5 ft tall or you want to skate outside, Brattleboro has some really good spots. I don't know if Whaleback in Enfield still has an indoor park or not, try giving them a call. The East Coast is tough for indoor parks, they never last... i.e. The Ramp Factory, Fat Matt's, Greenside, etc...
