Best Place to Parkour - 2007
Six Flags is waaaay to crowded to do Parkour in. Unless you love to showoff, it will be uncomfortable and awkward to do. I've even tried it myself, and it wasn't fun or relaxing at all.
me and my friends got from the superman to the pickup area in less than 5 minutes, we pretty muched parkoured to the hardcore lol
All kinds of no.
Parkour is based on the soldiers from Vietnam, but also from the methode naturelle by Georges Hebert. It was developed for an modern environment and given it's name predominatly by David Belle, but also by his friend Sebastien Foucan. It is a philosphy and style of movemen that emphasizes effieciency, working towards a goal, and using your skill to help others. All you need for parkour is a location. Any location. Pracitioners of parkour (traceurs) train in both urban and forest environment, learning to navigate effectively over all kinds of obstacles. Traceurs come in a wide variety of ages, with many being in their twenties. There are a lot of Parkour wannabes inspired by youtube who understand the crazy jumps but not the spirit - but these kids are usually interested in something else entirely.
What you refer to in this article is known as freerunning. It's similar to parkour, but different in that while parkour is about efficiency, freerunning is about showing off. While it can have a similar joy in movement to parkour, it does tend to attract those more intersted in showing off than improving themselves.
And lastly, a theme park seems like a terrible place to train. Security guards, lots of people, and having to pay to get in? not my idea of a good day out. My suggestion would be to try the city museum. never been there - but that place looks awesome!
