Adventure junkies could find themselves a new favourite place for an adrenalin fix as plans for a new £10m activity hotel in Wales have been unveiled.
The bosses at Surf Snowdonia, the world’s first surfing lagoon which opened in Dolgarrog in 2015, are hoping to build an adventure park and luxury hotel on site, which would feature a zip wire where guests can fly to check in.
The hotel development would be built on the shores of the lagoon, which currently is home to the complex’s glamping accommodation.
The 106-bedroom hotel, spa and indoor adventure attraction would comprise stuntman obstacles, extreme slides and climbing walls.
The zip wire would fly guests across Surf Snowdonia’s 300-metre surf lagoon.
The proposed investment – that will now go out to public consultation – will effectively double Surf Snowdonia’s workforce, creating more than 100 new jobs and make it a 12 month a year operation.
Andy Ainscough, managing director of Surf Snowdonia, told the Daily Post: “We’re proud to fly the flag for adventure in North Wales, it’s a brilliant region, and rightly regarded as the UK’s capital of adventure.
“Our plans will build on our established high-quality leisure offer and deliver a landmark destination, not just for North Wales, but for the UK and beyond.”
