2019 is looking like it’s going to be an exciting year that will see many of our Prom projects come to fruition. Over the past few months good progress has been made on the projects and we’re hoping to launch some this year with others being more long term.

Prom project updates

  • Aber Zip Wire – Positive meetings have been held with Zip World, and we will be carrying out feasibility studies early in 2019. After evaluating the results of those studies the next phase will be to secure match funding for the project with the aim of launching in 2020/21.
  • Aber Aqua Park – In partnership with Watersports World UK we are aiming to launch a new inflatable Aqua Park on the seafront. The ambitious project it as at an advanced stage and our aim is to open the park in the summer of 2019


  • Tourism Bus – We’ve been working closely with Mid Wales Travel to bring an ‘Open-Top’ bus to Aberystwyth. The bus which will have a dual purpose of showcasing the town’s landmarks and attractions as well as acting as a park and ride. We are aiming to have the bus operational by Easter 2019.
  • Paddling Pool – As we wait for long term resolution for the site, we are once again aiming to run a seasonal attraction in its place in 2019, with a Giant Sit Pit again being considered after its success in 2018.
