New adventure resort planned for Wales – with zip line, cable car & sky swing | The Sun

WALES could become home to a new adventure resort – complete with zip lines, a cable car and a terrifying sky swing.

Proposals for the resort also include a panoramic viewing platform, new dining facilities and a 'digital element'.

The adventure resort is being planned for Swansea's Kilvey Hill and if planning is approved, will open in 2025.

Guests will be able to ride on a cable car from Kilvey Hill down to the River Tawe and enjoy food and drink at new dining spots.

More adventurous visitors will be able to ride on a luge, zipline or sky swing.

The site proposals also include a viewing platform, chairlift, ticket office and reception area.

No planning application has been submitted yet, but the company designing the resort, Skyline Enterprises, is currently undertaking site investigation works.

CEO of Skyline Enterprises Geoff McDonald said: "The pandemic has inevitably delayed progress, but design and land assembly is ongoing as we work towards completing our due diligence.

"Positive discussions continue to take place with Swansea Council and other partners, with an aim for the attraction to open in 2025.

"Now that we're emerging from the pandemic, we hope to accelerate our preparations for this exciting scheme, which could also now include a digital element to add to the visiting experience."
