Happy Birthday

100_4993It's a very big happy first birthday to one of South Wales' most exciting attractions - Cardiff International White Water centre.  Opened last March as part of the Cardiff Bay sports village, the centre is proving very popular.  80,000 people braved the rapids over the last 12 months.

A whole host of activities are on offer including the ever popular white water rafting and hydro speeding, where the brave (or foolish) descend the rapids clinging on to nothing more than a triangular piece of plastic while getting tossed from side to side. It actually looks quite good fun!

The centre is suitable for everyone, as they can control the speed and flow of the water depending on your expertise.  Why not give it a go for yourself.
