A major new proposed leisure development, which could include such attractions as a cable car and chair lift system, luge runs, a sky swing, walking trails, a zip line, and food and beverage offerings, is in the works in Swansea, Wales. New Zealand-based Skyline Enterprises is leading the project.
The development would sit atop the city’s 633-foot-tall Kilvey Hill. Site investigation work commissioned by Skyline Enterprises started in November, and is among several preliminary steps needed before a planning application is submitted to the city.
If the project moves ahead, the city council told Business Live the leisure development could create around 100 jobs and boost the local tourism economy by attracting an estimated 450,000 visitors a year.
The scheme was proposed by Skyline Enterprises and is not a public works contract or development agreement with the city. Nonetheless, opportunities will be available in early spring of 2023 for residents to give their feedback on the Kilvey Hill development as part of the planning application process.
Skyline Enterprises owns and operates two outdoor adventure parks featuring gondola rides and other attractions and restaurants in New Zealand, as well as luge parks in Canada, South Korea, and Singapore.
