Adventure Parc Snowdonia closes its doors amid redundancies

Surf Snowdonia, the world’s first inland surf lagoon which regenerated an industrial site in North Wales and opened in 2015 is closing.

The £12 million wave and water park Adventure Parc Snowdonia posted online on September 1: “It’s with a heavy heart that we announce the immediate closure of our parc. To all who’ve been part of this journey, we’re truly sorry. Staff stated it was due to repeated mechanical failure of its wave machine.

“Vouchers for use at the Hilton Garden Inn Snowdonia and Wave Garden Spa, which remain open, can also be arranged. Please contact [email protected] to initiate this process.

“We’ll be exploring options for an exciting new chapter from 2024 and beyond.

“Thank you for your understanding during this difficult time. Your support, commitment, and dedication through what’s been an incredibly tough time has been massively appreciated by the team.”

The the 106-bedroom hotel, Hilton Garden Inn Snowdonia ,opened on site in 2021 generated 60 new job roles and will remain open.

Both the hotel and spa remain open to guests.
