HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Insanity Skate Park in Madison will soon have something for everybody. On Saturday, the owners and city officials will cut the ribbon on the new indoor skating rink.

The facility will also feature a rock-climbing wall and an arcade.

“It’s great for the community. The community has been anticipating this for a long time. They are excited and we’re excited to be part of this,” said Sherry Brukner with the Madison Chamber of Commerce.

While other parts of Insanity Skate Park have long been opened, the indoor skating rink was at a decade-long stand still. Making the grand opening even more exciting.

“It’s great for kids to come hang out, families to come and hang out,” said Brukner. “I think the city of Madison really needed something like this.”

The ribbon cutting will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, June 13th in conjunction with the Taste the Spirit of Madison BBQ cook off and festival.

Food trucks, booths by local vendors, and live music from bands “Groove” and “Falcon Punch”, and the Pie and Preserves contest will also begin at 11 a.m..

The Taste the Spirit of Madison event is free to the public.

From 6 p.m.-9 p.m. Bites and Brews tasting event will be held inside the complex, featuring tastings from local restaurants and breweries.  “Big Daddy Kingfish” will perform.
