The Scheme


An undeniable opportunity that will transform the South Wales Valleys

Having acquired the site in 2013, we approached this scheme as a blank canvas, and we have spent extensive time and resources understanding in detail the unique ecological and heritage features of the site, and how we can design a scheme to work sensitively. The regeneration successes in recent years in the region such as Redhouse Cymru, Merthyr College and retail offerings such as Cyfarthfa Retail Park and Trago Mills demonstrate that the region is focussed on economic development.

There is also clearly a focus on developing the area for adventure sport. With the success of BikePark Wales and Rock UK, a sports & leisure destination is well-positioned to build on that momentum.

Check out proposed elements below.


Indoor Snow Centre

At over 400 metres long the scheme will host one largest indoor ski slopes in Europe and the World. Using state of the art technology and the existing topography of the land the snow centre will operate ‘all year round’ providing amazing ski conditions for all seasons.

The centre will be a game-changer for British Winter Sport and will become a centre of excellence for Britain’s Olympic Ski Team. As the signature attraction this element will attract visitors from around the UK, Europe and beyond.

Indoor Tropical Water Park

One of the UK’s largest Water Parks will be part of the development plan. With a constant tropical climate, the water park will host artificial beaches, swimming and bathing area for all ages and levels. Not forgetting exciting water slides and attractions for all the family.


Adventure Park

Complementing world class indoor sports centres will be an indoor and outdoor adventure park. The park will feature a mountain coaster, clip ’n’ climb, zip wires and more adrenaline fun for all ages.

Luxury Spa Hotel

A first-class hotel with conference facilities and quality dining options. The luxury Spa Hotel will be the perfect place to stay to relax whilst exploring the leisure at Rhydycar West or the natural beauty of the nearby national park.
