Introduction & Purpose

LeisureDome is pleased to present its proposals to deliver a regional extreme sport and recreation facility at Locking Parklands, Weston-super-Mare.

The LeisureDome vision is to create a year-round, weather-reliable destination, where people of all ages can engage in skiing and high energy leisure activities as well as relaxing over a meal or enjoying the health club in addition to meeting & conference facilities that will add to Weston-super-Mare's offer for local businesses.

The LeisureDome will include an indoor surfing centre, an indoor sky-diving facility, a children's activity centre & creche, an indoor skateboard and BMX park, an indoor climbing centre, a health and fitness spa & gym, and sport related shops, restaurants and bars.

Locking Parklands has been selected as the preferred location following a comprehensive site search within the town.

Why Weston-super-Mare?

LeisureDome has identified Weston-super-Mare as a destination for the following reasons:
  • there is currently no regional offer in the South West, people currently drive to Tamworth or Milton Keynes to experience similar facilities.
  • proximity to M5 and ability to tap into 28 million vehicles which pass Junction 21 every year.
  • it meets North Somerset District Council commitment to increase and diversify its tourism facilities.
  • LeisureDome will provide a landmark tourist attraction.
  • 6.15million people live within a 2 hour drive time catchment.
  • complements the newly open Pier on the Seafront, Helicopter Museum, and a diary of events including: T4 on the Beach and Weston Beach Race.
  • THE PROPOSAL AT A GLANCE...

    The focus of the proposed development is:
    • a 210m long indoor ski slope, the longest in the UK, with capacity for up to 250 people on the snow at any time.
    • a wide training slope and a children's snow fun area.
    • main ski run has varying gradients to recreate the slopes of the mountains and meet the requirements of skiers and snowboarders at all levels of ability.
    • a year-round leisure attraction.
