Woodward at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya has officially opened

Woodward, one of the leaders in youth culture and action sports movement, is designed to empower kids to grow physically and emotionally through sports, technology, music, art and culture.

Woodward Riviera Maya has a variety of programs for all ages and skill levels, and even caters to team-building activities for groups or meetings. Program sessions include skateboarding, BMX, scooter, cheer, dance, tumbling, and free running, in addition to dry indoor snowboarding and skiing with ParkBoard and ParkSki, which are snowboards and skis with wheels on the bottom.

Woodward Riviera Maya also includes an interactive digital media space where GoPro cameras can be checked out to digitally record participants' time at the facility. The digital media program also encompasses Hard Rock's signature Music Lab. Woodward participants can select their preferred program and instructors will lead two-hour private or group drop-in sessions. Access to some of Woodward Riviera Maya's diverse offerings will be available to hotel guests with Resort Credit, while non-guests will be invited to participate for a fee.

The Woodward Riviera Maya features more than 20,000 square feet of state-of-the-art equipment, including a complete indoor concrete skatepark, pump tracks, foam pits, trampolines, jump to resi-landing, cheer and tumble floor, a parkour zone and mega ramps. Between activities, guests can take a break at the snack bar or on the viewing promenades where family and friends can gather to watch the action or enjoy live DJ sessions. The outside of the facility will feature the Woodward WreckTangle ninja obstacle challenge (coming in September), designed to ignite spatial awareness, athleticism, agility and amusement while encouraging guests to strategically move through challenging obstacles such as the "Rope Swing to Cargo Crawl" and "Rotating Rings."
