First look at the new holiday park opening in the UK with huge hotel, entertainment centre and water park | The Sun

A HOLIDAY resort popular across the US is set to open its first in the UK.

Great Wolf Resort always has more than 19 parks across the US and Canada.

And new images show the new holiday park which hopes to open in Basingstoke.

The location will be the site of the current Basingstoke Golf Centre.

The new resort will have a 500-bedroom hotel on-site as well as an entertainment centre with bowling alleys, arcades and restaurants.

There will also be an indoor waterpark with slides and pools as well as an adventure park with climbing walls and ropes courses.

And a one-night stay for a family of four at a Great Wolf Resort in the US can cost around $199 a night.

Basingstoke councillor John Izett said: “A Great Wolf indoor water park resort in Basingstoke would bring some £275 million of investment, many new visitors to our borough, many good job opportunities and a material and long term for the local economy.

"It would put us on the map as a UK visitor destination, and, I would expect, attract the best, most exciting leisure operators for the new leisure park. 

"Of course, these are early days and much detailed work is required including the company obtaining planning permission. I can confirm that our commitment to build a new council owned Aquadrome on the Leisure Park remains whatever the outcome.

"I very much welcome the interest in our borough from Great Wolf Resorts and hope residents will share this enthusiasm.”

The plans for the holiday resort were first announced in 2019, with the application denied in March 2020.

However, this was overturned with planning authorities giving the green light.

There are lots of other exciting attractions opening in the UK in the next few years.
