Camel Creek Resort – Development Programme Commences
Camel Creek is now gearing up for the much anticipated Resort development programme by preparing the infrastructure for the 5-Star Resort adjacent to the existing Adventure Park. This will include a village with all-year sports and leisure facilities, tree houses and villas around a lake and central village green.
In order to facilitate the infrastructure for this development work with as little disruption to the Adventure Park as possible, Management will be condensing Camel Creek Adventure Park into the top two thirds of the existing site, with the 5D Simulator theatre and Swampy & Dina Land being at the far end of the Park. Despite the scale of the development it remains their top priority to keep as much of the Adventure Park open throughout.
All the hi-tech and modern rides will remain as they are, along with the animal attractions, young family attractions, catering outlets, Show Domes, Showtime arena, Dragon’s Kingdom Indoor Play Centre and the main gift shop. A small selection of the older slides and mechanical/water rides will be closed to make way for the Resort infrastructure and will eventually be replaced by new hi-tech, indoor attractions. The popular Camel Creek ‘Character Days’ will also return for the 2018 season.
Chairman, John Broome CBE, comments “We are delighted to announce that the first phase of the Resort will be the construction of the World’s first Treehouse Village hotel, complete with the magical ‘Treetops’ restaurant. Construction will begin in summer 2018. The Lakeside villas and sub-tropical pool will follow”.
As a result, the Adventure Park will now be closed until 24th March 2018 but will re-open with the most popular attractions. The bottom section, around the lake, will be fenced off, clad with giant images of the Tree houses which will be under construction, but largely out of view. This short winter season closure over the February half-term week and winter weekends has been deemed necessary as the safety of guests during the construction period is paramount.
Camel Creek intend to get the exciting development project under way with as little disruption to the Award Winning Camel Creek Adventure Park as possible whilst ensuring that their guests continue to enjoy magical days out for all the family throughout the 2018 season and beyond.
