Updated: Revelstoke Adventure Park proponents file new management plan

The owners of the Revelstoke Adventure Park submitted a new proposal to the provincial government this week.

The Revelstoke Adventure Park will include a bungie centre if built.

The owners of the Revelstoke Adventure Park submitted a new proposal to the provincial government this week.

The new management plan and tenure application for the adventure park were submitted to the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations by Illecillewaet Development Limited Partnership.

The plan calls for a summer tourist attraction that would include lift-accessed mountain biking, zip lines, bungie jumping and more.

The new plan is 56 pages long, plus numerous appendices that total more than 400 pages. It includes traffic studies, wildlife studies, a wildfire management plan, riparian area studies and more.

The adventure park will be located on 64 hectares of private land and 257 hectares of Crown land in the Greeley area, on the north flank of Mount Mackenzie.

The proponents say the adventure park will draw traffic off the Trans-Canada Highway during the summer and create 250 jobs.

It is being developed by Black Tie Properties, a company run by Jason Roe, and Northland Properties, which owns Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Black Tie will serve as operators of the park.

“I’m excited to get to this step in the development of the Revelstoke Adventure Park. It will be a one-of-a-kind attraction, creating a greater awareness for Revelstoke further enticing visitors to discover our vibrant community throughout the spring, summer and early fall months,” said Roe in a news release.

The plan includes a build-out over several years and divides the adventure park into five areas.

Greeley Meadows, which would be mostly located on private land, would include a campground with 150 fully-serviced sites and 20 yurts; a man-made lake with a beach, a driving range, parking and the main guest facilities.

Just above that would be the tree-top adventures — a high ropes course similar to the one at SkyTrek.

A chairlift would access the bungee centre, which would be located on a bench overlooking the town of Revelstoke. It would include the bungee jump, a rock climbing area, sky swing, mountain lodge, and sightseeing deck.

The zip lines would stretch down from the bungee centre to the meadows, with the option to take either one 1,400 metre ride, or a series of zip lines ranging in distance from 20 metres to 450 metres.

The mountain bike zoning would encompass the rest of the tenure, with trails snaking through the forest from the bungee centre to the base.

Development of the park is set to begin next year with construction of the mountain road and trail network.

The park would open in 2017, with the campground, shuttle-accessed mountain biking, a bungee jump, zip lines, pump track and ropes course.

The main chairlift would be installed for 2018, allowing lift access to the bungee centre and mountain bike tails. Also planned for 2018 is a driving range, OGO ride, mountain coaster, helicopter tours, horseback riding and sightseeing trips.

Other amenities to built later include hot pools, the man-made lake, a second chairlift, rock climbing, a sky swing and the mountain lodge.

The new management plan was filed more than two years after the province rejected the first application by Black Tie.

Roe made a presentation to council in June saying the company believes they’ve addressed the concerns raised by the province.
