Letter from Founder
Dear UX Tribe-ster
Thank you for considering this opportunity to buy shares in UX and joining our mission to enhance the lives of people through FUN, FITNESS AND ADVENTURE bringing active adventure sports and entertainment to the city, making them AFFORDABLE, ACCESSIBLE AND ACHIEVABLE to the community.
After immigrating to Brisbane 9 years ago with my husband Darren, we recognised a niche in the market for snow sport and adventure.
Having always been adventure seekers and keen snowboarders, we were looking for a place to maintain our ski skills and enjoy adventure activities with our children, but there was nothing available.
In this busy time of technology overload, we are all aware of the impacts that our lifestyle is having on the health of our communities and the time we can spend being active with our families. At the same time, it seems people are reducing their engagement in traditional sports, and flocking to adventure sports such as trampolining, climbing, obstacle training and snow sports.
This is where the idea of UX was born, out of a passion for ski and adventure sports and a belief in leading an active, healthy lifestyle and having quality time with family.
Imagine being able to enjoy the activities normally reserved for winter, snow parks and mountains all year round right here in Brisbane. All in a safe, fun and low-cost environment. Add to that the ability to improve your skills, so that when it’s time to take that trip to the Snowy or Rocky Mountains, or wherever in the world, you’ll be able to make the most of your holidays.
It is with great pleasure we introduce to you Urban Xtreme Adventures Pty Ltd (Urban Xtreme or UX). Launched in 2017, our active adventure hub offers what we believe is the ‘Ultimate Experience’ in sports and leisure, empowering people to connect, engage and strive for their potential. The first chapter of our story took place with the opening of our centre in Brisbane, Australia.
The next chapter will be the addition of new activities and equipment that we believe will appeal to a wider market and increase profitability. If you are someone with a sense of adventure who recognises the importance of providing opportunities to keep our community active and wants to be part of the global shift in sport and recreation, then don’t miss this opportunity to invest in the future you want to see for your family and friends and be part of this exciting organisation.
I truly believe that what we are building is a remarkable business that is set to positively improve and enrich the lives of our community and the leisure market and I very much hope you will come with us on our journey. These are exciting times for sports and leisure. Don’t miss this opportunity to be part of this journey.

About Urban Xtreme
Urban Xtreme Adventures Pty Ltd (“UX” or the “Company”) is an urban adventure ‘hub’ and is one of the first of its kind in Australia, delivering indoor snow sport and adventure experiences.
UX aims to be a fresh, disruptive concept in active leisure, with the goal of bringing adventure sports and entertainment to urban environments in a new and exciting way.
UX founder, Lindsay Davis and Director Ben Baker have developed a business model that caters for the growing interest in adventure sports, providing an urban solution to those looking to experience recreational and
enthusiast level Ski and Snowboarding, Trampolining, Climbing, Ninja, Parkour, Laser Tag and other active leisure activities. The success of business models such as “Bounce INC”, “Skyzone”, “Latitude” and “We are Vertigo” demonstrate that the global market is ready for large-scale active leisure providing a larger variety of adventure activities.
The activities are designed to thrill adults and kids of all ages and abilities while remaining affordable, accessible and achievable.
We believe our centre is the first multi-activity attraction in Australia combining a wide range of snow sport and adventure activities designed to appeal to ski enthusiasts, adventure seekers and the day out family market.
We have set our first site up in Brisbane, a 12-minute drive from Bris- bane’s CBD and accessible to the majority of the Brisbane population. It is our intention for this site to be the first of many.
We aim to provide the South East Queensland community with opportunities to participate in adventure sport activities and learn new skills that would normally be out of their reach; financially, geographically and physically.
We believe UX will encourage visitors to the area while at the same time offer the local community a modern facility.
UX offers adventure passes, ski passes, birthday parties and workgroup/team building activities, as well as new experiences such as Ninja Warrior race nights, ski competitions and Laser Sporting Leagues.
The UX mission is to make active adventure sports AFFORDABLE, ACCESSIBLE and ACHIEVABLE by providing cities with the ULTIMATE EXPERIENCE in adventure sports
and active entertainment. We aim to ENGAGE, ENABLE and EMPOWER all people that connect with UX to be the best they can be, by FINDING THE FUN IN FITNESS THROUGH ADVENTURE and experiencing the ultimate excitement.

Updates from Urban Xtreme & Supplementary Offer Document
19/01/2019 at 6:14 PM
Things have been busy here in the park over the last few months!
We’re almost 60% funded through this campaign, and we are delighted to have also secured a further $200,000 private loan to assist with our plans to add fun climbing and expansion of the trampoline area. $100,000 of the loan will convert to shares at $0.80 per share once the campaign has closed and the remaining $100k will be paid back over 2 years.
We have had a great school holiday period with revenues reaching over $200,000 in the first 18 days of January. With February fast approaching, birthday party and Ninja program revenues have begun to kick back in strong.
It is with regret that Operational Manager Matthew Ginn resigned from Urban Xtreme in early January to return back to his home city of Melbourne. We will not be replacing Matthew’s position in the immediate future, however we may look to do so in the coming months. Courtney Alder has been promoted to Centre Manager and has taken over the majority of the operational management responsibilities.
Because of the above changes, and the issue of a further 12,987 shares contracted prior to the Crowdfunding campaign, we’ve issued a Supplementary Offer Document to update our existing pledgers (and for the new pledgers we hope to get on board by 28th January).
Please read through the document, and let us know if you have any questions. We’d love if you could share this campaign with your crowd as well so we can hit our goal (and for you to get your shares).
