Zoo has best visi­tor num­bers for 21 years

North Wales Weekly News - - NEWS -

THE Welsh Moun­tain Zoo has had its best visi­tor num­bers dur­ing the sum­mer pe­riod for 21 years.

Some 76,000 peo­ple came through the gates at the Col­wyn Bay at­trac­tion from June to Au­gust de­spite the dis­ap­point­ing sum­mer weather.

Nick Jack­son (inset), di­rec­tor at the zoo, said: “These are fan­tas­tic fig­ures for us to re­flect on.

“The weather can al­ways play a vi­tal role and de­cid­ing fac­tor when peo­ple are con­sid­er­ing a day out at the zoo but they have clearly been un­de­terred this year.

“There have been some great new at­trac­tions that have opened dur­ing the past year, as well as one off events. The launch of our new app and Im­mer­sive Tech­nol­ogy Cen­tre have un­doubt­edly been high­lights.”

He added: “Mov­ing for­ward we hope to build fur­ther upon this suc­cess and con­tinue to cre­ate ex­cit­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties for visi­tors to en­joy and ex­pe­ri­ence.”
