Scotland’s leading leisure destination for families, Crieff Hydro Hotel in Perthshire, is inviting local adventurers and families from further afield to experience the custom-built £250,000 Adventure Park as it opens to the public.
Glen’s Adventure Park is the biggest of its kind in the region and was due to open in April however its launch was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. In line with government guidance and Scotland moving into phase two of the road map – Glen’s Adventure Park finally has opened its gates with its official launch expected later in the season.
At the heart of Glen’s Adventure Park, within Crieff Hydro’s 900 Acre Estate, is Glen’s Fort an imposing four-storey, eight metre high, structure with three slides, four lookouts, climbing walls, crawl tunnels, ladders and clambering spider webs. Its impressive timber structure echoes the impressive architectural silhouette of Crieff Hydro Hotel itself.
Suitable for all the family regardless of age, the brand new Adventure Park has something for everyone. It includes a trio of 30m racing zip wires, swings, playground games, two inflatable jumping pillows and peddle berg karts. A range of trim trail elements are also on site including balance beams, rope walks and stepping stones.
A custom built toddler area will be added to Glen’s Adventure Park in the coming months to further enhance its appeal for visitors.
Richard Leckie, Action Glen Manager and sixth generation of the family that heads up Crieff Hydro Family of Hotels, said: “It’s been our ambition to create an impressive Adventure Park at the centre of Action Glen, so we were very disappointed to have delayed our launch when lockdown measures were put in place. We hope to make more of its arrival a little later in the season, but in the meantime we wanted to open our gates to ensure visitors could enjoy all we have to offer.
“Although we’re not fully operational yet, we are delighted to be able to launch Glen’s Adventure Park and invite local adventurers and families from further afield for an action packed day out.
“The health and safety of all visitors and our team remains a priority and we have introduced measures to ensure a day spent at Crieff Hydro is still one to remember. This includes limited numbers being allowed access at any one time, mandatory online pre-booking and hand sanitation and equipment cleaning stations installed within the Park.”
