Theme Park Celebrates Grandparents Day
Oakwood Theme Park is celebrating ‘Grandparents Day’ on Sunday, October 6th by offering free admission to grandparents.
The offer is valid throughout the whole day and each grandparent will be admitted free when accompanied by a full-paying Junior admission.
‘Grandparents Day’ was first introduced to the UK in 1990 by the charity Age Concern – now Age UK. It has been celebrated on the first Sunday in October since 2008.
Oakwood Theme Park’s Dominic Jones said: “Quite rightly we always celebrate Mothers and Fathers Day but we also felt it was only right to highlight the key role grandparents often play in families.
“By officially recognising October 6th as ‘Grandparents Day’ we’re hoping to do a little something to redress the balance.
“Hopefully lots of grandfathers and grandmothers will be able to take advantage of free entry to the park and enjoy a day out with their grandchildren without breaking the bank,” he added.
Set in 88 acres of spectacular Pembrokeshire countryside Oakwood is Wales’ biggest family adventure with more than 40 exhilarating rides and amazing experiences to discover.
New for 2013 is Neverland, a Peter Pan-themed adventure park which spreads across more than three acres and features 10 new rides and attractions.
Among the new rides are ‘Skull Rock’ pirate log flume, complete with 12-metre-tall sculpted skull, the ‘Lost Boys Adventure’, ‘Neverland Chase’, ‘Tink’s Flying School’, ‘Crocodile Coaster’, ‘Jolly Roger’ mini galleon, ‘Hook’s House of Havoc’ soft play and the ‘Sights of London’ taxi ride featuring Big Ben, the Tower of London and Nelson’s Column.
There is also ‘Journey to Neverland’ a stunning, interactive walkthrough area which takes visitors in to the Darling family home and above the streets of London before arriving in ‘Neverland’ itself.
