After Park Plaza Skateland on Park Plaza Dr closed in 1988, there were no public skating rinks in town. In Jan. 1992, the 22,500-sq-ft Skates Alive opened on Salem Drive. A church bought the property in May 2003 with plans to convert the building, but Skates Alive continued to operate under the new ownership.
In Aug 2017, Elite Air Newburgh moved into the building and opened Owensboro's first trampoline park and ninja warrior course.
Here are a few photos I took before the transition happened.
