Barnsley Metrodome has been hailed among the best leisure destinations in the country – following recent figures which revealed people are travelling from as far away as Edinburgh and Brighton to visit the venue.
The data, collated by leisure provider BPL, showed that the centre’s Calypso Cove Water Park alone has welcomed more than 280,000 people in the last 12 months.
The venue also recently launched a new relaxation suite, a functional training area and its new MyRide cycle studio, which is attracting cycle enthusiasts from across the region.
Tim Wilson, BPL chief executive, said: “Last year was a great year for BPL and Barnsley as a whole, as we attracted people from right across the UK.
“It’s fantastic that the top-class leisure facilities offered in the town are being recognised.
“As we go forward we are always looking at ways to further develop and improve our leisure facilities for our customers and fitness members – next year will be no different.”
Steve Roberts, head of business development for BPL said: “We’re aiming to build on the Metrodome’s success with further improvement of facilities in 2014.”
