Lexus Hoverboard Skatepark Discovered in Barcelona

Lexus Hoverboard Details

Last week, Lexus went viral with the announcement that they had created a fully functioning hoverboard, and now Spanish website El Patín has uncovered the skatepark where it’s all going to happen — from The Verge translation of the original article:

Now, Spanish website El Patín has discovered that the the park in the ad is real, and in the pictures that it’s being built in Cubelles, a village outside of Barcelona. More importantly, we can clearly see a metal track embedded in the ground of the unfinished park. The writer at El Patin says that the park’s been under construction for about a month, and that it’s patrolled by private security 24 hours a day.

The track appears to loop through the entire park and across various features. At one point it curves up into a sloped wave feature, and in one photo the track appears to go down (or up?) a set of nine stairs. As if hoverboarding wouldn’t be cool enough, there are jumps.

(The global response to the Lexus Hoverboard has been phenomenal, with the Youtube teaser video racking up 6.5 million views in a single week.)

Worth noting that the concrete has been lined with magnets for the hoverboard to work. It only works in this skatepark and that's why Lexus had to build it

I didn't post this on the original post, but did anybody notice a slight spindle grille on the hoverboard?
