More than £1million is being invested in Crealy Adventure Park which will create up to eight new jobs next year.

The investment will see five new rides and a themed indoor area and follows a successful summer with more visitors than ever before.

Next year’s improvements follows investment last year which led to the opening of Crealy Meadows Caravan and Camping Park next door, which has been a huge success. Next year’s plans will include new rides, varying from family rides to a selection of children’s indoor rides, including a junior coaster.

There will also be a new heated indoor themed play area called Atlantis, which has an underwater theme, a large soft play area and a new refreshment outlet serving coffee and cakes.

Other new attractions include an animal encounter show, as well as a bug and creepy crawly ‘experience’ and self-service to the Mamma Mias Pizza Pasta buffet.

The investment coincides with the 25th birthday of the attraction.

Chris Down, MD, said: “We are looking to continue investing in the park to ensure that the guest and member experience is exceptional.

“We’ve had a successful summer seeing a substantial increase in visitor numbers. The fantastic weather helped draw high numbers of tourists to the region and also meant that many locals chose to stay in the area.

“We are investing just over a million pounds and anticipate creating another six to eight jobs. This decision was taken following a fantastic summer and detailed market research.”
