Continuum Acquires North Wales Activity Park in ‘Unmissable Opportunity’ Deal


The North Wales based GreenWood Forest Park, has been acquired by a top UK leisure attractions group.

Continuum Attractions regards GreenWood Forest Park in Y Felinheli as an ‘unmissable opportunity’ to expand into the outdoor attractions sector.  Until now, all of Continuum’s activities have focused around themed attractions.

It owns, operates and manages a variety of heritage and entertainment themed attractions including:

  • The Emirates Spinnaker Tower
  • Portsmouth
  • York’s Chocolate Story
  • The Real Mary King’s Close in Edinburgh
  • The Canterbury Tales
  • The Emmerdale Studio Tour in Leeds

GreenWood is the company’s second project in Wales as it is also possesses the management contract to operate the Royal Mint Experience in Llantrisant.

 Kevin Smith, Continuum Attractions Group attractions director said:

“We are delighted to have added GreenWood Forest Park to our portfolio of outstanding UK visitor attractions.  Continuum Attractions has been keen to expand into outdoor, family experiences and GreenWood will offer a fantastic opportunity for us to do so.

North Wales is a fantastic place to visit, not only is it an area of outstanding beauty but as the staycation continues the area is becoming a thriving hub for holiday makers both national and international”

GreenWood Forest Park has been voted the Best Family Attraction in North Wales for 6 years.  It was set up by Stephen and Andrea Bristow in 1993 and now attracts around 150,00 visitors annually. The deal is giving the Bristows the opportunity to retire. GreenWood Forest Park is extremely popular with visitors offering a wide range of activities including Archery, a solar powered water ride, a people powered roller coaster and the longest sledge run in Wales. One of its latest attractions was a Magic Chair giving users the opportunity to shrink via an optical illusion.
