Puxton Park has invested a whopping £300,000 in its latest attraction, which is set to excite thrill-seekers.

A high ropes course suspended 20 feet above the ground, which promises to be ‘one of the most exciting and challenging courses win the West of England’ will open at the Weston adventure park in March.

The park will also open a Sky Tykes course, which is designed for children aged two to seven.

The course, which will be shipped from the United States, will be opened by fan-favourite Winter Olympian Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards.

Managing director Alistair Mead said: “We are thrilled to unveil the new high ropes course. With construction underway, our excitement is growing and we can’t wait to witness children and parents enjoying this new attraction for years to come. Since opening over 10 years ago, we have worked hard to add new and exciting attractions every year; this may be one of my favourites.”
