THE company behind the redevelopment of Portrush's Dunluce Centre has lodged a planing application with an 'Out of Ocean' surfing wave as its centrepiece.
Billed as a 'family entertainment centre', the proposal also includes waterslides, climbing walls, kids' wet and dry play areas and a cafe.
The wave machine planned for the centre will be unique to the UK and Ireland but is tried and tested attraction in Germany according to the developer, 360 Leisure.
The application comes after a public consultation earlier this year and the firm says it covers only the first phase of the scheme.
A second application looks set to broaden initial ambitions for the site beyond indoor family entertainment.
A spokesperson for 360 Leisure, said the firm had thought long and hard about the site after consulting with Portrush locals in April.
“We are delighted to announce that following our public consultation, extensive research and dialogue with all of the relevant stakeholders we have submitted our planning application to Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council," the spokesperson said.
“Over the last 12 months we have developed the concept for an 'Out of Ocean' surfing facility with an associated Family Entertainment Centre on the site of the former Dunluce Centre incorporating the existing building."
