Bosses at a Lancashire holiday park have been celebrating the launch of their new high adrenaline activities following a massive £3.5million investment.
The activities, which include freefalling experience, “The Jump”, as well new climbing walls, golf course and segways, were unveiled at Haven’s Marton Mere Holiday Park near Blackpool earlier this week.
Olympic gold medallist Will Satch MBE helped reveal the new additions to the holiday park, which, thanks to a £3.5million investment and work over the winter months, also includes indoor and outdoor facilities as well as new accommodation.
Ahead of what’s expected to be another busy summer, the demand for fun and exciting outdoor activities is higher than ever, and The Jump, which was first introduced to Haven’s Craig Tara park in South Ayrshire, Scotland, in 2019, offers guests a thrill-seeking experience by freefalling from two different height platforms onto a massive airbag.

Officially launched on Monday in front a crowd of eagle-eyed spectators, Team GB athlete Will was in high spirts as he tried out all the new activities.
The rower, who won a bronze medal at London 2012 before claiming gold at Rio 2016, is no stranger to competitive challenges, and said: “I’m such a big fan of adrenaline filled experiences so for me, even on a holiday I want to be active.
“There is so much to do and even as an adult these activities are tons of fun, so I can definitely see why children are eager to try it this summer.”
Despite Will being a highly decorated rower, you don’t have to be an Olympian to get involved in the new activities at the holiday park.
Guests can get on two wheels and explore on segways or bikes, or grab a greater view of the park from the climbing wall.

General Manager at Marton Mere, Keith Robson, said: “It was amazing to see so many people supporting the launch of our new activities today.
“We’re very happy to be able to bring these fun and exciting additions to the park and we can’t wait to see our guests enjoying them throughout the summer.”
In addition to the new activities, Marton Mere has invested in other areas, with more than 70 new pitches for holiday homes and a whole new location on the park site in Lakemere View near the Marton Mere nature reserve.
There is also a new Burger King as well as new outdoor dining areas providing plenty of space for guests to enjoy the park.
The investments have led to an additional 35 new job roles too, which provided a huge boost to the local area.
