The Welsh Mountain Zoo has announced its strongest visitor numbers to date for the summer period, in over 21 years.
Some 76,000 people came through the gates in the period June to August, a fantastic achievement particularly given the poor weather throughout July and August.
Nick Jackson, Director at the Welsh Mountain Zoo said: “These are fantastic figures for us to reflect on after our busiest period during the course of the year. 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, days and weeklong celebrations. The launch of our new app and Immersive Technology Centre have undoubtedly been highlights as have our Fairy Tale Fun Day, Big Bug Bonanza and lots more!”
