Oakwood Theme Park is investing £150,000 in a major new pirate-themed indoor soft play area.
The new attraction, ‘Hook’s House of Havoc’ will tie in with the park’s £4.5m Peter Pan-themed Neverland feature, and is set to open next month.
It is being built by Llanelli-based Crazyplay, one of the UK’s leading creators of themed soft play, and will feature slides, a ‘ball blaster’ zone, a ball pool, a sports court and separate areas for toddlers and younger children.
“As a south wales based adventure play manufacturer we are extremely proud to be supplying the new Hook’s House of Havoc to Oakwood,” said Crazyplay’s Mike Broadfield.
“Crazyplay has worked with some of the leading global entertainment brands in the past and we can’t wait to bring some of the magic learned from these experiences to the new adventure play area!” he said.
The play area is part of an ongoing programme of investment taking place at the park.
Oakwood Theme Park director, Dominic Jones, said: “One of the recurring requests we had from families last year was to provide an all-weather attraction for younger visitors which could be enjoyed on those rare occasions when the sun doesn’t shine in Pembrokeshire.
“This new soft play area is one of the largest in the region and will provide a whole new dimension to the Neverland experience,” he added.
Bosses have also revealed there will be a major new attraction opening in time for the summer, although details have yet to be confirmed.
The park enjoyed one of its busiest ever starts to the season during the Easter holidays.
“We’re really pleased to get the 2014 season off to such a positive start,” said Dominic.
“Our newly-opened Oak Tree Restaurant is proving extremely popular and we are now hard at work ensuring ‘Hook’s House of Havoc’ will be open in time for Whitsun.
“We are also finalising details of a major new attraction which is set to open this summer and will be making an official announcement about it very soon,” he added.
Set in 90 acres of spectacular Pembrokeshire countryside, Oakwood is one of the UK’s leading theme parks with more than 30 exhilarating attractions; including four world class rides to enjoy.
