North Yorkshire Water Park, based on the Dawnay Estates at Wykeham near Scarborough, has been given permission to install a brand-new twin zipline across one of its lakes.
A 13-metre-high tower and 250m long ziplines will be built over the second largest lake on the site, a short distance from the southern peninsular which sees most of the watersports take place. There will also be two climbing walls adorning the tower, set to be clad in Dawnay Estates timber, in line with the rest of the new hub buildings.
While no official date for the opening has been released, spokespeople for the North Yorkshire Water Park hope it will be in operation by early 2022.
David Steel, Chief Executive of the Dawnay Estates, says: “This is another significant milestone for us at North Yorkshire Water Park, as we commence the building of another headline attraction”.
“We have invested over £1 million into the business over the past year, and the zipline is a key part of our vision for the site, which has enjoyed huge popularity particularly this summer since the major expansion of facilities.
“As well as the zipline and our new climbing walls, we have also recently announced the opening of our new ‘251 Events Room’, adding to our private functions and corporate offering. The new activities will be bookable on their own, or as part of an event or party.”
The zipline will be built by Technical Outdoor Solutions, a specialist in bespoke constructions which boasts a portfolio of successful projects with past clients including Parkdean Resorts and Morfa Bay.
