The official opening of the Mall of Switzerland scheduled for November 8, 2017.The mall will be a hotspot for surfing lovers in Switzerland and beyond. In time for the opening, «Glisss», the indoor surfing specialists, will guarantee real surfing enjoyment. For the first few weeks the surfing fun, among pleasant beach surroundings at the mall, will be free of charge. It's the perfect place to catch a wave until Switzerland's first indoor surfing wave opens in the Mall of Switzerland in March 2018.
Two Pocket Surf amenities and a Skim Parc will be ready for action in time for the opening of the Mall of Switzerland. The surfing facilities ensure safe and straightforward surfing fun for all ages and experience levels, from beginners to experts. With its low energy demands and water consumption (based on a closed-loop concept), the system is both energy effective and environmentally friendly.
«Just a few months later, in March 2018, Switzerland's first permanent indoor deep water surfing wave «citywave» for beginners and pros will open as the central attraction in the over 1,200 square metre leisure, dining and event centre in the Mall of Switzerland». The Mall of Switzerland continues to work with Jochen Schweizer to create «citywave» and to ensure the permanent facility incorporates all the latest technology and design findings from a standing wave previously in work at the Jochen Schweizer Arena in Munich. The Management is confident that the result will be a world-class attraction that exceeds the expectations of surf fans.
Until then, the «Glisss» Pocket Surf amenities and the Skim Parc will provide surfers with memorable times. «We want a visit to the Mall of Switzerland to be an unforgettable experience. Our innovative surfing concept will perfectly complement the many leisure options on offer. It's an eye-catching attraction unrivalled anywhere else in Switzerland», states Mall of Switzerland director Jan Wengeler.
