The area will also host a family-friendly restaurant, and a number of themed retail outlets.

Full details of the new attraction will be released early next year. Work is set to start on site in the next few weeks with a planned opening prior to the 2013 summer holidays.

Dominic Jones, Park Director of Oakwood Theme Park has commented;

 “This represents by far the largest investment at the park for more than a decade and is a direct response to visitor feedback we have received. As well as creating a must-see new destination for families, the development also represents a major boost for the local economy and will create a number of new jobs.
“It will totally transform the visitor experience and provide a magical new series of attractions aimed specifically at the family market. This will be the largest new attraction of its kind in Wales and is the first phase in an ambitious and ongoing programme of investment over the coming years,”
