Nile Wilson officially opens Haven’s brand-new adventure village at Golden Sands Holiday Park

Exciting new facilities open at Lincolnshire holiday park

Leading UK holiday park operator, Haven, has extended its Park of the Future concept trials with the official launch of its Adventure Village at Golden Sands Holiday Park.

The Park of the Future project, which has seen Haven invest over £110m while trialling innovative new concepts for holidaymakers and holiday homeowners, is now in its third year and the new Adventure Village brings together concepts that have been trialled during 2019. While holidaymakers were able to try out some of the activities the official launch was delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Olympic gymnast Nile Wilson, bronze medallist in the horizontal bars at the Rio 2016 games officially opened the new Adventure Village at Golden Sands today. He has previously visited the Lighthouse Harbour Adventure Village at Haven’s Craig Tara so knows the excitement that lies ahead for holidaymakers!

“I would have loved to come to a holiday park like this when I was younger, although my parents would have never got me away from the Adventure Village!” says Nile. “Dangling from heights is second nature to me, so between the Aerial Adventure, the Climbing Wall and The Jump, I’m in heaven!”

The new Adventure Village has a range of activities for both young and old and you don’t need to be an Olympic gymnast to get involved. The outdoor play area has lots for children to climb, explore and slide down with the multi-use games area ideal for a range of games with friends.

Younger guests will love a bit of time in the sand play area and if feeling bolder then taking to the skies with the Mini Aerial Adventure. Well it’s one metre off the ground but if you’re smaller than 1.2m in height it may feel like the sky!

Feeling adventurous? Then there are a few surprises in store for you – the new climbing wall has six different sections, all getting progressively more challenging to test even the most skilful climbers, whilst those using the Aerial Adventure will soar above the Adventure Village as they navigate the multi-directional course. And then there is The Jump giving guests the chance to freefall from two different heights onto a massive airbag!

Want to be a little closer to the ground? Then the Adventure Village has an outdoor stage and seating areas to enjoy outdoor entertainment whilst a pop up bar and Seaside Treats container as well as being close to a range of food outlets means there’s plenty to keep the family hunger at bay! And your four-legged friends can get involved too – the Bark Yard provides a secure exercise yard providing something for every family member!

Luke Cullen, General Manager for Haven’s Golden Sands Holiday park said: “The Adventure Village is a great development which is giving our holidaymakers and holiday home owners a selection of exciting new activities for them to discover during their holiday with us. It has bought a fresh look and feel to our Golden Sands Holiday Park, and we love the way it has transformed our outdoor area.”

Gerard Tempest, Chief Marketing Officer, said: “We are currently trialling new and exciting concepts for Haven, and the new Adventure Village is a great representative to show how we are looking to develop Haven in the future. If our concepts are successful, we will look to roll out these developments to our wider haven parks.”
