Jungle Jim’s Closes – to be a New Space and themed entertainment and event suite at The Blackpool Tower. It’s due to open this summer and will be used for family fun, events and conferences.
Work has already started on the new 750-capacity venue which is due to open to the public in August. The new suite, which will appeal to all, replaces the children’s play area, Jungle Jim’s. An additional 20 new jobs will be created.
This comes as The Blackpool Tower celebrates its 125th year of providing amazing and memorable family experiences.
Jungle Jim’s Closes – to be a New Space!
Kenny Mew, General Manager at The Blackpool Tower, said: “We are really excited to be opening this new space for the public. It will increase the potential of attracting big names in the entertainment industry right here to Blackpool. The possibilities are endless. It will have multiple themes, including a taste of circus which Blackpool is so famous for!
“Over the years, Jungle Jim’s has been close to many people’s hearts. It’s brought literally thousands of hours of playtime fun which will always be remembered.
“Moving forward, it’s important for The Blackpool Tower to meet public demand in terms to features which they want to see. Over the years, we’ve noticed an increasing appetite for unique event spaces inside our iconic building so we’re keen to meet this demand. Being able to create 20 plus permanent jobs is a real positive for Blackpool.
A new event space
“During its 125 year history, this area has been home to many exciting attractions and this new space will only add to the legacy of this historic building. It will really complement our portfolio of first class event spaces here at The Blackpool Tower.”
Currently The Blackpool Tower is home to attractions including The Blackpool Tower Eye, The Blackpool Tower Circus, The Blackpool Tower Ballroom and The Blackpool Tower Dungeon which can also be used for meetings and events.
This month The Blackpool Tower celebrates its 125th birthday. On May 14, honoured guests and friends of the Lancashire landmark will gather in The Blackpool Tower Ballroom to commemorate the anniversary.
