After an extended winter shutdown and £1 million of new investment, Surf Snowdonia Adventure Parc is back, better than ever and ready to open it’s doors to the general public from Saturday 19th of March. As well as modifications to the lagoon’s wave generating equipment, the team at Surf Snowdonia have been putting the finishing touches to the Crash and Splash lagoon and improving camping and catering facilities on site. 2016 will also see the introduction of Stand Up Paddleboard and Kayak tours on the river Conwy which meanders past the back of the complex.
The UK’s first inland surf lagoon opened to great expectation in August last year, but suffered a few teething problems, which lead to a couple of unplanned shutdowns and the premature winter revamp. We are told that the wave generating kit has undergone extensive modifications and has been in place and under test for the last 6 weeks. Testing has been successful and Surf Snowdonia are happy they have addressed the reliability issues at the site.
Surf Snowdonia is the worlds first publicly accessible Wavegarden lagoon and as well as the opportunity to surf the manmade wave, visitors can also stay at the onsite glamping village or enjoy a meal at the Surfside Café, Deli and restaurant and sample the tasty meals sourced from local produce. Booking is now open at the official Surf Snowdonia website and at time of writing, there are even slots still available for the opening weekend as well as the Easter weekend. There is definite a confidence that Surf Snowdonia is going to deliver in 2016 and the announcement that the Splash and Crash lagoon with its body launching Blob, is now ready, really does make the Adventure Parc a fully inclusive family destination that is more than worth a visit.
