Surf Snowdonia – Crash & Splash Lagoon

A group of friends and I went to Surf Snowdonia to do the Crash & Splash Assault Course last week. Prices vary throughout the week but for a Saturday it cost us £25 each (pre booking seems to be essential). Like a number of attractions in North Wales, it’s not very accessible by public transport. We took a taxi from Conwy Rail Station which set us back about £20. I think there’s a bus from Llandudno or Conwy too.

After about 30 minutes we moved on to The Blob which was great fun though I did pull a muscle on my first time being catapulted so the fun stopped there for me. Some friends really enjoyed it and even tried somersaults after a few turns. Although, they did have a sore neck for a day or two after.

Afterwards we had a drink in the ba4676820_99c98ddar which was lovely because it overlooks the surfing area and feels really friendly and warm. There’s also a restaurant there but we didn’t venture in.

Overall, I’m not sure it was worth £25 for me but it was good fun. The midweek tickets are £15 so I would recommend getting those instead.
