Camel Creek Adventure Park facts for kids
|Location||Wadebridge, Cornwall, England|
|Owner||John Broome CBE|
|Previous names||Cornwall's Crealy Adventure Park|
|Area||111 acres (45 ha)|
Terry Sandling bought Trelow Farm in Tredinnick and opened the property to the public in 1989 as The Shire Horse Centre. The property was then sold to Crealy Great Adventure Parks in 2004. Following an acquisition in 2015, John Broome CBE purchased Cornwall's Crealy and rebranded it as Camel Creek Adventure Park.
Major rides include the new 5D Simulator, Morgawr, The Beast, Raging River and Thunder Falls. Camel Creek targets younger children up to the age of six. Swampy and Dina are resident characters.
At the same time as purchasing the park, John Broome also purchased nearly 200 acres (81 ha) of land adjacent to it and announced his plans to turn Camel Creek Adventure park into a six-star resort, the first in the UK. The plans would create 955 jobs in and around a holiday and leisure park with 236 holiday homes. There will also be a convention centre and amenities such as a restaurant, pub and shops. After the council granted permission for the project in October 2016, work is planned to complete in 2022 with construction reducing season times, opening hours and ride availability of Camel Creek.
