    Wasn't there supposed to be a ski slope above the arena at some point, or has that been scrapped now? If it's still in plan, surely that would require some sort of roof restructure, which could be the time to look at extra seats?

    Part of the overall problem may (and I stress may) be a commitment for arena owners whoever they may be to complete the development

    I stress I know nothing but this could be more than just the ski slope If that is the case then whilst that might be where the income lies it cannot be an attractive proposition to anyone considering buying the rink

    Also anyone know if there is a loan on the building. If so our owners - being primarily financiers - could buy the loan and sit back and wait - asuming thereis a charge specific to the building

    The Ski dome is in another phase, it isn't above the Arena thank goodness, behind the IAW between us and the road, there is supposed to be a multi storey car park, with a 150 metre ski dome on the roof of that. That's still a number of years down the line. The aptly named sports village, has to contain Water, Snow., and Ice, as there was a European grant to help with this.

    Why has nobody questioned Cardiff Council as to why the European Grant wasn't used to build the IAW, the White Water centre ?
    Probably because it was used to reclaim the land used to build property.

    Hopefully... My Wife's has been knackered since the start of the Season (when we got the ST for it), we've brought it up with IAW about 4-5 Times through the Season, every time they've promised to get it fixed! Still not changed to my knowledge :rolleyes:
    If it's like it next season i'll be bringing the tools to swap it myself!!!

    Mine keeps collapsing on the one side, plastic is incredibly thin and flimsy.

    I hope there were 3,100 seats in that van, the ones that are currently in place are abysmal. The whole rink should have the padded type that are in the corporate area and then proper comfy seats where the corporate currently are.

    That's an awful lot of European-manufactured company cars.

    Another example of incredibly poor decisions when building the rink. Shame:(

    If you lean to the side they buckle and I can only imagine how bad they must be for some of our 'larger' fans.
