IT’S the August Bank Holiday weekend, so it’s hardly surprisingly that the weather forecast isn’t looking too good.

So if you are looking for an indoor adventure, then check out Bournemouth’s new £2m Rock Reef Centre.

The former Pier Theatre which was converted earlier this summer, features 25 different ‘Clip ’n’ Climb’ climbing walls, an aerial obstacle course and 65m of pier caves.

Thrill seekers will also be able to try the world’s first zip line over the sea from pier to shore which is due to open in a few weeks. The converted theatre also contains a vertical drop slide, a leap of faith jumping challenge and a cafe.

Operators Openwide International, who have invested £3m into the Pier since 2007, say it brings it into the 21st century.

It also provides Bournemouth with an additional wet weather attraction but Steve Cutbush, Openwide’s managing director, said it was not solely aimed at tourists.

“It’s a year-round attraction so it’s got to fit lots of target markets,” he said.

“We know many locals haven’t visited the pier in years, now it’s worth coming down for.”

Other future attractions in the pipeline include a standing surf wave.
