Oakwood seals new arcade deal

Funzone: Oakwood’s arcade

OAKWOOD THEME PARK has agreed a major new deal with the UK’s leading provider of family entertainment solutions to the leisure industry.

The park has signed up Playnation to manage and operate its amusement arcade the ‘FunZone’ which features everything from simulator machines and carousels to air hockey tables and ten-pin bowling lanes.

The deal is part of a new national contract which will see the Cheshire-based company look after all of Aspro UK’s arcade operations.

Oakwood Theme Park’s Phil Verbinnen said: “We are excited to be working alongside such a leading business within the leisure sector.

“Their expertise, combined with improved economies of scale with the other Aspro UK businesses, will enable us to develop and enhance our existing indoor amusements and provide visitors with a better, and constantly updated, experience.”

New deal: Playnation are a market-leading company

Playnation own and operate some 20,000 amusement machines across over 1,700 sites in the UK.

They partner with the market leaders in the leisure sector across holiday parks, motorway service stations, family pubs, bowling alleys, and major airports.

Among their other clients are Kiln Park in Tenby, Butlin’s, Heathrow Airport, the RSPCA and Odeon.

Set in 90 acres of spectacular Pembrokeshire countryside, Oakwood is one of the UK’s leading theme parks with more than 30 exhilarating attractions; including four world class rides to enjoy.

Later this year the park is opening ‘Dahland’ – a brand new zone inspired by the works of Roald Dahl.

Among the new attractions will be the ‘Flight of the Giant Peach’ ride, ‘Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker’s House’ walkthrough attraction and ‘The Magnifitorium’ – a New York-themed area for live shows, character appearances and performances.
