The Surf Snowdonia Adventure Parc will open its doors for the 2016 season on Saturday 19th March, a week ahead of the long bank holiday weekend and Easter holidays.
The much-anticipated relaunch of the flagship UK adventure destination follows £1 million of new investment during a five-month winter downtime.
Exciting new facilities aimed at a broad family market include a thrilling water-based ‘Crash & Splash’ obstacle course as well as a spectacular catapult ‘blob’. There will be guided stand up paddleboard and kayak safaris on the River Conwy as well as enhanced glamping accommodation and catering facilities.
Andy Ainscough, managing director at the Surf Snowdonia Adventure Parc said: “We are massively excited about the 2016 season and we’re confident that our unique and expanded offer makes us the most compelling family adventure destination in the UK.
“We’ve invested in some really exciting new facilities like our Crash & Splash activity lagoon and our catapult blob which, as unlikely as it sounds, are the best fun you’re ever going to have being launched into the water.
“Our accommodation offer is looking brilliant with our super-comfortable glamping village right on the water’s edge, and we’ve sought out some of the best local producers in North Wales to help us deliver a fantastic menu selection for the Surf Side Café, Deli and Restaurant. The Surf Snowdonia Adventure Parc is a great place to come for a brilliant day out or short break for all ages, whether or not you want to get wet.”
Surf Snowdonia has been listed as ‘one of the world’s hottest new experiences for 2016’ by influential travel journal Lonely Planet. The surf lagoon proved a major tourism draw for North Wales in 2015 with the surf lagoon booked at an average 97% occupancy in its short first season. High profile visitors including Larry Page, the founder of Google, and Nick Woodman, founder of GoPro.
The unique concept behind Surf Snowdonia’s surf lagoon has been developed by Wavegarden, the global leader in the design and manufacture of wave generation systems. At the push of a button the Wavegarden generates perfectly formed and consistently powerful waves which interact with contours on the lagoon bed to produce different wave profiles at different points in the lagoon. Absolute beginner surfers can enjoy the thrill of surfing alongside experienced surf athletes.
