What’s new for 2023 across our parks | Haven
We added loads of new features to parks in 2022, from launching new Adventure Villages to creating incredible new entertainment spaces through the Marina Bar and Stages. And for 2023, we have even more investments to shout about!
We're really excited about the new additions coming to our parks, from incredible new Adventure Villages and Marina Bar and Stages to activities, food and drink - and a whole new Haven park opening in Skegness.
Read on for a glimpse of what's to come*. Did we mention we're pretty excited?!
*Dates subject to final planning permission. In this article we've used imagery and video of similar venues, facilities and activities from another park to give you a picture of what's launching in 2023. The final facility or activity may look a little different when they open.
1. Adventure Villages
In 2022, we launched all-action Adventure Villages at Allhallows, Kent, and Thorpe Park, Lincolnshire. And (drumroll alert!), we're completing more in 2023!
We're excited to be adding a range of facilities Weymouth Bay, Dorset during 2023 to complete the Adventure Village here too! Full of amazing activities and plenty of options for food and drink, our Adventure Villages ensure you can make the most of the summer sun with all the family.
We'll also be opening more Aerial Adventures and Mini Aerial Adventures, more Jump towers and Climbing Walls.
2. Marina Bar and Stages
In 2022, we opened state-of-the-art Marina Bar and Stages at Hopton, Norfolk, and Kiln Park, South Wales, creating space for all of your favourite Haven entertainment.
For 2023, we'll be opening more of these venues at Allhallows, Kent (open now!), Quay West, South Wales (open now!), Thorpe Park, Lincolnshire (opening Summer 2023), and Skegness, Lincolnshire (opening Summer 2023) - making way for even more holidaymakers and owners to join the fun.
3. Swimming Pools
We're adding a roof to the outdoor pool at Hopton, Norfolk, to bring year-round swimming to more holidaymakers.
4. Slim Chickens
Holidaymakers, owners, and even team members loved the new addition of Slim Chickens to our parks at Devon Cliffs, Devon, Hafan Y Mor, North Wales, and Primrose Valley, Yorkshire in 2022. So you'll be thrilled to hear we've added two more outlets!
Serving up cooked-to-order premium chicken with a side of Blues music, new Slim Chickens restaurants and takeaways have joined the parks at Thorpe Park, Lincolnshire and Perran Sands, Cornwall (both open now!).
We're also adding new Chopstix outlets at Haggerston Castle, Northumberland, and Presthaven, North Wales, bringing a mouth-watering taste of Asian cuisine to enhance your break (due Summer).
And there's more! We're opening more Papa John's, Burger King, and Costa Coffee Carts, and we're hoping to open even more food and drink outlets throughout 2023. Updates to follow!
6. Exciting new activities
There are tonnes of new and exciting activities landing at our holiday parks in 2023.
There's the Inflatable Arena now open at Hopton, Norfolk, Littlesea, Dorset, Haggerston Castle, Northumberland, Devon Cliffs, Devon, and also arriving at Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset, in summer 2023.
We're also adding twisty-turny fun in the form of tube slides at Devon Cliffs, Devon (opening by summer 2023). You'll sit on an inflated ring and whizz your way down parkland in this thrilling new activity.
And a Mini Aerial Adventure low ropes course is coming to Lakeland, Lake District - ideal for adventurous little holidaymakers aged 2+. (Opening late spring, 2023)
