Rampin’ it up – The First Weekend of Ramp Jam

May 12, 2010

This past weekend marked Busch Gardens’ first ever Ramp Jam featuring X Games gold medalist Bucky Lasek and BMX Champion Kevin Robinson. They, along with four other top athletes, impressed the crowds with their tricks in Festhaus Park last Saturday and Sunday. The event, sponsored by Mountain Dew and 96X radio, was a definite crowd pleaser.

Each of the pros had an opportunity to express themselves and show off their tricks to excited fans. Twists, flips and 720’s, as well as a contest to see who could get the most air were the hit of the show, until the end, when a double-crossover then a triple-crossover was demonstrated. It was incredible to see them going underneath one another as part of the show.

Here is a video of their amazing stunts.

The crowds loved all of the action. The support seemed to grow throughout the weekend and the guys enjoyed showing off their skills. After the shows, they even spent some time signing autographs in the plaza area for their fans.

We are definitely looking forward to the next two weekends of Ramp Jam and meeting the pros that keep our hearts racing with adrenaline.
