Since opening in September 2005 Bodyflight has expanded to include some new facilities.
Opened in May 2010 nearly five years after the wind tunnel first opened FlowHouse signals the start of a new sport on the Bodyflight site. Flowboarding is the latest board sport taking the world by storm. It combines all the best bits from surfing, wakeboarding, snowboarding and skate boarding, wrapping them neatly up into one new and exciting sport. FlowHouse centres around a 10-metre wide sheet wave called a FlowRider that allows you to surf on the surface on specially designed boards.
How does it work?
A Flow rider sprays a sheet of water, about four inches deep, over a trampoline like ride surface. This water then disperses through small holes In the grating at the back of the ride where is rejoins the water tanks underneath the ride surface.
It then travels though the filter system to be cleaned before going though the pumps and back out of the nozzles onto the ride surface to be re-circulated once again.
Launched in September 2008 Vertigo is the extremely popular 30 metre simulated BASE jump from the top of the Bodyflight tower. You are placed in a full body harness attached to a Power Fan decender and leap from the top of the tower experiencing freefall before you gently touch down on the landing platform below.
Having so many wonderfully exciting activities and experiences on site can really get the adrenaline going but there is nothing better than after a day full of action packed experiences, than to chill out and relax. The Bodyflight leisure centre allows you to do just that. Including hydrotherapy swimming pool, sauna, steam room and gym you can really relax and unwind.
Bar & Grill
After playing hard for the day, you’re probably ready for some refreshments and a bite to eat. The Bar & Grill is located in the FlowHouse and serves a range of food and drink throughout the day and into the evening.
The Bodyflight site has hosted a number of famous faces over the years. Many television programmes have been filmed here and even scenes for the Daniel Craig 007 feature film: Quantum of Solace. FlowHouse has also started to get a few famous friends with the likes of Jo Brand even giving our waves ago. We have also held photo shoots, fashion shows, gigs and much more in this highly customisable space.
