New adventure activity re-launched at Western Leisure Centre for half-term holiday

It will be one big Air-venture for young people in Cardiff from this week-end as a major indoor attraction re-opens after COVID rules have been relaxed at Western Leisure Centre, Ely. 

The popular wall to wall inflatable area will be installed for half-term week and every week-end thereafter to provide a great leisure experience for children, young people and the young at heart. Air-venture is the biggest and best inflatable area in South Wales and is ideal indoor fun activity for all ages.

Matt Simmons, Manager at Better Cardiff’s Western Leisure Centre, explains:

“Getting more young people physically active is one of our key priorities and re-opening Air-venture at Western Leisure Centre can help make that happen after months of lockdown.

“There can’t be too many kids in Cardiff who don’t like the idea of bouncing around a huge inflatable and that’s what it’s all about – if you make exercise fun then it’s easier to do over and over again. And if you do it when you’re young, the chances are you’ll keep exercising, and keep reaping the benefits long after.

“Air-venture is jam-packed with exciting activities and features. You can experience challenging obstacle courses, a  six meter high slide area, mega bounce area and push through a basher forest to enter a maze to get lost in.  A jelly mountain can be clambered over, the freefall section is already proving popular with our trial users where you take the climb up and then take the leap of faith from height onto the landing zone.”

A Welsh company from Tredegar, Airspace Solutions, created the Air-Venture asset and is over 500 square meters  in size and hosts a toddler area, wipeout balls, basher forest and free fall area and Giant slide.

Air-venture will be open on Saturday May 22 for all of half term week and then every week-end from Friday evening until Sunday.
