With the start of summer finally underway, exciting news has also arrived with the announcement that the long awaited and highly anticipated Surf Snowdonia is to open to the general public on August 1st 2015. The state of the art facility is the first publicly accessible Wavegarden in the world and the first inland surfing location in the UK.
Surf Snowdonia in Dolgarrog has been under construction for 13 months and initially the facility was due to open in July but a small fire in the pulley tower back in April added a slight delay to the construction. The Welsh Wavegarden will deliver the longest man made waves in the world offering up to 52 surfers, a ride of up to 150 metres, that can be adjusted between 70cm and 2m in height.
As well as the state of the art surfing facilities, there will also be the opportunity to watch the action from a glass fronted viewing area and the complex also has brand new restaurant and cafe areas and retail centre all on-site. The £12 million facility that has been built on the site of an old aluminium factory, will be filled with Welsh mountain water is expected to attract over 75000 visitors a year and will now become one of the biggest attractions in Wales.
Along with the official opening day announcement the full price strategy has also been revealed and can be seen at the official Surf Snowdonia website, where you can also find all the latest news and book a slot to try it for yourself. Construction is expected to be complete within a matter of weeks and then official testing will be carried out in July, ready for the August 1st opening.
