Foxlake Adventures, Scotland’s first cable wakeboarding park in Dunbar, celebrates its 5th anniversary with the launch of a 5th outdoor activity, ZipTrail, which is the country’s first ‘dual’ zip wire course, featuring three zones up to 30ft high, with eight obstacles, spanning a combined length of 900m.
The award-winning social enterprise began with one overhead cable which pulls wakeboards over the surface of a 180m lake in 2012 and now boasts a second wakeboarding cable, Europe’s only above water harness-free obstacle ropes course, FoxFall, inflatable ringo rides and segways.
The latest addition to the Four Star VisitScotland attraction, which is surrounded by stunning woodland on the edge of the John Muir Way and visited by over 100,000 participants since opening, is the ZipTrail, which features three zones with 12 ‘dual’ zip wires, where two people can fly through the woods simultaneously, scheduled to be officially launched on Saturday 22nd July.
Foxlake Adventures Director, James Barbour said: “We are delighted to be launching our 5th outdoor activity at Foxlake as part of our five-year anniversary celebrations.
“The dual, parralell, zip course, which is the first of its kind in Scotland, is a great addition to the existing thrill-seeking activities for all ages and abilities at our multi-activity hub in Dunbar, which we’re confident is going to be another big hit for visitors, whether you want to fly solo or sail through the woods, side by side, with your friends and family.”
The team at Foxlake Adventures, who work closely with various community groups and schools, including Castlebrae High school and Preston Lodge High School where wakeboarding and Foxlake leadership programmes are part of the curriculum, plan to add ZipTrail in to the mix, giving youngsters from all walks of life the chance to challenge themselves through a wide range of action packed outdoor activities.
