Been there twice before had a good time both times, really fun, great uplift service. They have good feature and it is pretty well maintained. Going tomorrow actually.

Really good jumps and lines for all abilities they could maybe put some warning signs up though Tom once accidentally went the wrong way not knowing what was coming and fell into a ditch

yeah thought it was a wood bridge... turns out it was a gap a mixture of heel straps and and lack of speed put me in the drink.

id give it a 4, because the people are really friendly and helpful, good camping area, jumps are ok but some of the landings are a bit rocky. I think it loses out on a 5 because the BX track isn't amazing as for the top sections you struggle to keep speed up and then the last corner it suddenly gets up to speed.

Over all though, a good challenging freestyle center with some fun features.

Im sure I have more fun pics, but this is funnier..

I've given it a 4, not because it is worse than any other centre but I don't think there is currently a 5 star centre anywhere in the world.

5 star would indicate a perfect centre and in my opinion there isn't one yet! Still Bugs is undeniably one of the best centres in the world so I don't want to take anything away from it!

Never ridden there, wish I could... in any centre as a matter of fact. Not having carefully design jumps, rails, etc... hinders a lot the progression curve :(

great centre, great atmosphere, still is the bx that lets it down unfortunately. Always has been a place for the freestyle jib monkeys though.
