Airkix Basingstoke (2012/13)
A photo record of the construction of a new leisure facility - Airkix. A coup for the town given that at present there are only two others in the UK - Milton Keynes & Manchester.
Looks like a great innovation, it may well be far cheaper than going up in an aeroplane but I wonder how many local folk will baulk at the starting price of 30! Fun does not come cheap these days.
UPDATE Oct 2014: a family fun ticket with 10 'flights' comes in at a cool 160!
