BUTLIN'S is splashing out £2.5million on an inclusive, interactive, illuminated SKYPARK coming to Minehead this year.



Six zones based on positive play emotions will include new features such as the UK’s longest swingline at 42metres, its first wheelchair friendly seesaw and two light-up intertwining slides.

There’s a dedicated play space for tots and SKYPARK has a continued focus on sensory features including a place of calm in the Sound Domo playing 18 relaxing sounds.

The playground lights up at night for an after-dark experience.

SKYPARK will be free to use and all included in the price for guests on family breaks and day visitors.

Alongside SKYPARK opening later this year, there’s also an accommodation refurb project in Minehead that will be completed by April.

A total of 400 accommodation units will be completely renovated later this year, offering holidaymakers a relaxing, practical space for a family break or adult only Big Weekender.

And the resort’s newest venue, Studio 36, which was installed during Covid, will be made permanent to house headline acts.

There will also be investment and upgrades to other entertainment venues on resort.

Resort director Matt Rake said: “2024 is going to be an incredible year for Butlin’s Minehead.


"These amazing projects and the substantial investment we’re putting into resort is going to significantly enhance our guests’ experience.

"As the Home of Entertainment, nowhere else does fun and entertainment like Butlin’s, so the announcement of our incredible, inclusive playground Butlin’s SKYPARK coming to Minehead is amazing news for holidaymakers joining us later in the year.

“SKYPARK has been a real success since opening in Skegness so the addition of this incredible playground at Minehead will take already jam-packed holidays to a new level. This year really is going to be our biggest and best year yet.”
