  • If you in mountain biking this is the place to go, staff are great and couldn't be more helpful. The trails are very well kept and can't be faulted. After a day of riding you can chill in the cafe great food great atmosphere.
  • 5 star if they could just make the whole experience just a little bit more affordable. Otherwise great food, trails and people. The uplift drivers were pleasant and chatty, the cafeteria team were nice too. Overall a really great day out! Doable from London return in 1 day.
  • Took my bike to the UK and went across to Wales for a few days, largely because of Bike Park Wales. It's my idea of Disney Land, and I was not let down. Despite going in the peak of summer holidays, everyone was well spread out so no traffic jams on the trails, and there was a steady stream of uplifts. Good cafe, and the Wibbly Wobbly beer was almost as good as the track.
  • Awesome day spent riding on the uplift here. So well organised, trails were stunning. Visitor centre restaurant was welcome stop off during the days riding. Will be back for more!!!
  • Trails and uplift service are spot on. It's quite pricey though so it's a treat as opposed to a regular thing. The health and safety side of things has room for improvement. My mate broke his collar badly and nobody answered the phone at the centre. He had to make his own way down and to the hospital. A place of this size should have better plans in place to deal with emergencies. I know it's at your own risk, but having some to respond to accidents would be useful and someone medically trained on site. The local hospital cannot keep up with all the extra people going there. Perhaps BPW could donate some money towards staffing at Merthyr Tydfil hospital. All in all though it is a great place to ride and the trails are great, it is the best of it's kind in the U.K.
