The Last Hoorah

The October half term school holiday is now upon us and this is the last chance of the year to get good numbers of visitors through the gates.  October is not the easiest month to plan for as big marketing efforts can be wasted by bad weather, and it can get bad.  October can also have some fantastic weather and that is the hope for 2010, this morning didn’t look too promising with the rain but the forecast isn’t too bad for the next five days so fingers crossed.

The park has had a big push on the marketing and voucher offers for the half term with over 40 regional papers taking up a reader offer with a half price voucher and competitions for tickets in most of them too.  The offer is also on the Facebook page so if you need a voucher click the link below.

There are still plenty of things to see and do at Knowsley Safari Park even at this time of the year, we have rhino expecting with the first calf due very soon and we have had a fantastic year for babies with the antelope and deer around the park, many small calves can still be seen all over the place.  Sea lion shows will be running throughout the week, animal feeds and talks will happen daily and we have our final week of opening for the amusement rides so there should be something for everyone.

It’s not been an easy year for anyone financially this year so maybe a half price offer is just what people need to cheer themselves up with a day out.  Whatever you are going to do this week I hope you enjoy it.

About safariuk

I am the Visitor Service Manager for UK tourist attraction Knowsley Safari Park. I have been in the post only for a few years and consider myself very fortunate to work in such a fantastic place. Not many people outside of Africa can take their lunch break while looking at elephants! This isn't the official blog for Knowsley Safari Park but my own views and opinions on things that may be happening at the park, in the leisure industry or anywhere else.
