Continuum Attractions buys GreenWood Forest Park

Continuum Attractions has moved into the outdoor family attractions sector with the purchase of GreenWood Forest Park in north Wales.

The attractions group said it bought the attraction in Y Felinheli “because it is a successful and award-winning family adventure park business and an unmissable opportunity for the business to expand into the family, outdoor attraction market”.

Andrew Pawson, financial director of Continuum Attractions, commented: “GreenWood Forest Park is a wonderful place to visit.

“It has a fantastic team in place, which is delivering that success.

“It also champions green and sustainability issues, and manages its environmental impact.”

Continuum Attractions operates heritage and entertainment attractions across the UK including The Real Mary King’s Close, Edinburgh; The Canterbury Tales, Canterbury; York’s Chocolate Story; and Emirates Spinnaker Tower, Portsmouth. It also has a management contract to run The Royal Mint Experience in Cardiff.

Kevin Smith, group attractions director, added: “We are delighted to have added GreenWood Forest Park to our portfolio.

“Continuum Attractions has been keen to expand into outdoor, family experiences and GreenWood will offer a fantastic opportunity for us to do so.

“North Wales is a fantastic place to visit, not only is it an area of outstanding beauty but as the popularity of the ‘staycation’ continues, the area is becoming a thriving hub for holidaymakers, both nationally and internationally.”
