Scotland’s most celebrated Olympian opens Park’s £2 million attraction
Explored and adventured with his family before a meet and greet with Adventure Park guests
Decorated Olympian Sir Chris Hoy MBE helped Conifox Adventure Park welcome back fun-seekers this weekend, by officially opening the new £2million Indoor Activity Centre.
An ambassador for SAMH (Scottish Association for Mental Health) – a mental health charity to which Conifox is pledging a sizeable donation – Sir Chris MBE was introduced by Managing Director, James Gammell, before cutting the ribbon and exploring the new space with his family.
Guests in attendance - including local and community councilors and the tradesmen who helped build the activity centre - were treated to an audience with Sir Chris Hoy MBE, before watching the official opening of the new centre, as well as enjoying canapes, drinks and photo opportunities with the Olympian. The Scottish cyclist then went on to offer signings and meet and greets with the general Adventure Park visitors, following the event.
In his introductory speech, Managing Director James Gammell talked of the new all-weather Indoor Activity Centre which has brought 15 new jobs to the park. Designed and built to combat the Scottish weather and enhance business opportunities, facilities include a large soft play, a toddler town, a parenting room, three party rooms, a 400-seater café and a 200-seat function suite. The versatile new space can host a variety of events including weddings, birthday parties, events and conferences as well as specialised events, private ceremonies, birthdays, fairs, fitness classes and more.
James Gammell, Managing Director of Conifox commented, “It was a great honour to have a sporting hero and an Olympic legend like Sir Chris Hoy MBE open our new Indoor Activity Centre today and it was great to share it with his family too.”

It now anticipates the new facilities, which represent a £2m investment and cover 35,700 sq ft, will mark out the Adventure Park as a go-to destination for families, wedding parties, school groups, conference and corporate event organisers and others looking for a unique indoor venue.
