This Thursday, January 5th, we release the Red Bull House of Skate, a huge personal space that includes an addictive skateboarding game and all the amenities – from breathtaking views to a built-in hot tub fit for the throwing wild parties with your friends. Rack up points by flipping and grinding your way throughout the Skate Park and then head to the updated Red Bull Air Race, which has been expanded to include new tracks and levels, pilots and planes, and, of course, rewards for the players that hit the highest scores.
