BRAND NEW Dragon Slide launches for May half term!

BRAND NEW Dragon Slide launches for May half term!

We're super excited to announce our BRAND NEW Dragon Slide opens on Saturday 25th May 2019 here at Heatherton - just in time for an epic May half term holiday!

What is the new Dragon Slide?

Our new Dragon Slide is known as a 'tubing' or 'tubby' slide and it's a twist on traditional snow tubing.....without the need for snow!

You'll zoom down our expertly crafted track made with special 'slippery' matting, similar to a dry ski slope.....all in a giant tube and at top speeds!

Our main slide has thrilling parabolic turns and specially-placed braking mats to create a safe yet exhilarating ride experience.

In the words of Swedice, creators of our Dragon Slide, "The parabolic turns turned out to be very sharp indeed and will definitely ensure some adrenaline!"

We're also delighted to have a shorter, gentler slide so our younger visitors don't have to miss out on the action.

We even have a 'magic carpet' to transport you and your tube back to the Dragon's Lair at the top.....leaving all your energy for sliding!

What age are the two slides suitable for?

Our thrilling main tubing slide is suitable for adventure-seekers aged 6 years and over, while our shorter, gentler slide is suitable from 4 years old.

Are there any restrictions for using the Dragon Slide?

For your own safety we do have a small number of important restrictions for the Dragon Slide:

  • Minimum age for the small slide is 4 years and for the main slide is 6 years.
  • All participants must wear proper shoes where feet are fully covered. NO open-toe shoes or Crocs. 
  • The maximum weight for sliding is 15 stone (95.25kg).
  • To ride the main slide, minimum height is 1 metre and maximum height is 1.86 metres (6' 1")

(There is no height restriction for the smaller slide - only age).

Do I need to book?

Nope, simply purchase your credit passes at reception (or buy your passes online in advance for a 10% discount), follow signs for the new Dragon Slide and get ready to FLY!
