A brand new indoor soft play area and sensory room is set to opens its doors at a popular attraction this weekend.
An empty building has been renovated at Pleasurewood Hills in Lowestoft and this Saturday, June 23 it will be turned in to Woody’s Cub House.
After gutting the whole building, a team from the House of Play – specialists in manufacturing and installing soft play areas – began the transformation. The final finishing touches are now being made for the purpose-built area, with a separate sensory room providing a more relaxed and calming space for young babies and children with autism or emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Adam Noble, general manager at Pleasurewood Hills, said: “This is the third major investment at the park since the start of 2017 and we’re really pleased with how the play area has come together.
“We’re really looking forward to it opening and believe it will be a popular addition to the park.
“While we were developing the ideas for the play area I learned about the positive effect sensory rooms can have. We have an increasing number of enquiries about the park’s suitability for people with autism and thought the sensory room would be a valuable addition,” he added.
Woody’s Cub House is named after Pleasurewood Hills’ mascot Woody Bear, who has been a resident at the park for many of the 35 years it has been open. Even after all the years it has been open, Pleasurewood Hills remains a popular tourist attraction and last month a record breaking 20,000 visitors set foot inside the park – the highest total recorded for any May during the last 10 years.
Visitors to Pleasurewood Hills this Saturday and Sunday will be able to explore Woody’s Cub House from 10am until the park closes and, as it’s opening weekend, Woody Bear may also be putting in a special appearance.
Woody’s Cub House will be open every weekend and on days the park is open. Entrance to the Cub House is included in the price of entry to the park. Certain charges may apply, please refer to www.pleasurewoodhills.com for full details.
