An innovative, unique and educational Skegness attraction is hosting an official launch event next week in the hope of inspiring greater support from the local community.
The Lost World Adventure Park on North Parade is inviting the town to take a look at its achievements over the past year and the plans for future development on Thursday, July 18 from 4.30pm.
Bradley Carter, the brains behind the park, has been disappointed with the uptake so far but is confident that people will be inspired to return once they see what’s on offer.
“We’ve spent a huge amount of money to turn a dilapidated old premises into an educational dinosaur park with some uniquely fun attractions but at the moment we’re not getting a great deal of support from the community or the tourists,” he said.
“We’re holding this launch event to say we’re here, we’re here to stay and we’re willing to invest more money to make this even better but we need the town on board - so come and have a look and come and see what we’ve done.”
The Mayor of Skegness Coun Jim Carpenter will be officiating the grand opening when there will be free food and drink and an evening of entertainment for everyone
“I’ve put a lot of energy and effort into trying to make this a really special night,” he said.
The park’s Journey Pass VIP Wristbands will be on sale for £4.99 - half the normal price - with a buy one get one free offer included on top
Mr Carter has recently launched a number of innovative new attractions including the UK’s only 3D glasses crazy golf and a 4D dinosaur trail .
“When you look around the room it seems like you are with the dinosaur. It feels like you can touch them,” he said.
Other interactive attractions include a Creepy Crawly Cave, fossil hunt and a dinosaur dig, which are aimed at educating the park’s visitors.
“We’ve got the slot machines and the fun parks but Skegness has never had an educational dinosaur adventure park, so I thought it would bring something new and exciting to the town,” he said.
