North Wales Tourism partners working together to secure Welsh Mountain Zoo’s uncertain future
Denbighshire Leisure Ltd is helping to raise funds for the Welsh Mountain Zoo during the pandemic by giving Ninja TAG games with every donation to the official zoo recovery fund.
The Welsh Mountain Zoo, National Zoo of Wales in Colwyn Bay, faces an uncertain future if it can’t keep vital funds coming in during the pandemic.
As well as sharing the same North Wales Coast as the Welsh Mountain Zoo, SC2 and Ninja TAG in Rhyl is also part of the North Wales TenTop Attractions group. Ninja TAG in SC2 Rhyl, is giving free offers to every person who donates £20 or more to the official recovery fund and the attraction hopes that working together they can get through this uncertain time.
Jim Jones CEO of North Wales Tourism said: “It’s heart-warming to see this level of support between attraction businesses in North Wales. Great initiative from Denbighshire Leisure Ltd, and proof that when we work together everybody benefits.”
Marcia Azevedo Moreira, Marketing & Sales Manager, at the Welsh Mountain Zoo, said: “We are extremely grateful that Denbighshire Leisure Ltd, one of our partners in the North Wales TopTen Attractions group, are supporting us during this difficult time. It is incredible to see another popular attraction in the area putting something together that will help us push our plight further whilst giving our wonderful supporters a little treat that they can enjoy once restrictions have been lifted. On behalf of us all here at the Welsh Mountain Zoo, and of course all of the animals, we thanks Denbighshire Leisure Ltd and SC2 Rhyl for their support.”
Ninja TAG is an adrenaline fuelled obstacle course within SC2 Rhyl on the promenade. Players of the game must hit electronic targets throughout the course to gain points and beat the clock and their friends.
Suitable for the whole family, Ninja TAG is the first in Wales with Junior Ninja TAG being the first of its kind created.
Jamie Groves, Managing Director of Denbighshire Leisure Ltd said: “We are living in difficult times and North Wales attractions need to support each other to get through. We firmly believe that ‘together we will beat this’. We have said from the inception of SC2 Rhyl that we want to encourage tourists to come to North Wales and stay in the region, we’re partners not competitors with other attractions, so it only seemed right to help our local zoo during this difficult time.”
