Cornwall’s Crealy Great Adventure Park, near Wadebridge, saw a 10% increase in visitors and an 11% growth in revenue throughout August this year compared to 2013.

Earlier this year, the park opened Swampy and Dina Land, a new area for toddlers, and invested in new rides and park refurbishments.

General manager, Simon Townsend, said: “This has been our busiest summer in eight years; we haven’t seen such high footfall figures since 2006. In fact, the year as a whole has been fantastic, we’ve exceeded targets on the majority of days and seen a 13% increase in footfall in the last nine months compared to last year.

“Most of our visitors come from out-of-county, so Cornwall’s good weather has been a big draw with many people taking advantage of our unlimited summer entry for the price of one visit.”
