Called Sub Zero, the centre would be the seventh in the UK and the first in England’s North East.
Developer Cool Runnings has confirmed plans to build the three-storey complex on a seven-acre site at Middlesbrough Dock in Middlehaven, only a short distance from the town’s iconic transporter bridge.
The centre will feature a main slope spanning 165m × 30m and a 52m × 50m nursery slope for beginners.
Designed by architects FaulknerBrowns, the 20,400m² centre will also include indoor skydiving, a climbing wall, soft play area, trampoline park and bowling alley that will complete the family-friendly experience.
The adjacent listed Middlesbrough dock Clock Tower will also be incorporated into the design of the project.
