Book uplift online


Our mini bus uplift fleet will transport you to the Summit of Myndd Gethin at 491 metres elevation so you can enjoy the amazing variety of world class descending trails we offer.  Simply select the day you wish to visit and follow the simple process to purchase your day pass, we strongly recommend pre-booking as day passes are seldom available on-spec.

By purchasing an uplift day pass (price includes park entry) you have access to the uplift service for the duration of your visit and are able to use the uplift service as many times as you wish to maximise fun on the trails.  Typically day pass riders are able to complete 10+ runs in a day giving them as much as 3,000 vertical metres of downhill single track heaven. 

If you are unable to pre-book your day pass don't worry, you can still arrive on the day of your choice and purchase a pedal pass and a "multi ride card" which will allow you to fill empty seats on buses and you can enjoy a mix of pedal up and uplift assisted riding for the day. Uplift day pass holders always take priority. 

Please remember that children aged 16 years and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times (including on the trails and on the uplift), no adult, no ride, no refund! If a booking is made for a person under the age of 17 you must notify BikePark Wales as soon as you book, notifying us of who will be accompanying them. There are no refunds if you turn up alone.

Please note any bike with a tyre wider then 2.75" will not fit onto our uplift trailers.

Please provide a valid mobile phone number when booking as we will need this to contact via mass text you if we have to close the park due to extreme weather conditions
