FlowRider Jr Opens at Red Car Leisure Center

FlowRider® Jr is commissioned at Red Car Leisure Center

In the UK, municipalities are getting in sync with the value a FlowRider® can bring to their venues.  In the aquatics area, the FlowRider simulated surfing machine is joined by a six-lane 25m competition swimming pool and a ‘beach-style’ pool, as well as an 11m by 7m learner pool with a moveable floor. A sauna and steam room are also present.

FlowRider’s continue to find their way in the UK, with several Flow House locations (Bedford and Yorkshire), Hotels (Merton Hotel, Jersey Island, and Retallack Luxury Holidays, Cornwell), and several in municipal locations.  The latest addition to the FlowRider family makes it seven installations of our surfing waves in the United Kingdom!

Operator Everyone Active opened the doors to Redcar & Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart following a £31m investment.  The S&P Architects-designed project started in October 2011 and officially launched in the north east seaside town on 26 April after 30 months of work.

The 120-station gym has been kitted out with the Precor Experience Series range including treadmills, upright and recumbent bikes, adaptive motion trainers with Open Stride and elliptical crosstrainers, as well as Concept II Rowers and Precor Vitality Series strength equipment.

Elsewhere, the civic side of the building will house the borough’s council chamber, registry office, business space for small to medium sized enterprises, plus civic space and meeting rooms. – See more at:
