Felixstowe: New attraction is proving a hit with resort’s visitors

EVERY summer, thousands of people descend on Felixstowe to enjoy the host of amusements and attractions along the seafront.

From games machines to rides, the resort’s seafront is filled with youngsters enjoying fun days out.

And one seafront boss is hoping people will enjoy the attractions at his site over the holidays as he opens up a new ride for the summer.

Stan Harris, owner of Ocean Boulevard in Sea Road, has brought back the popular water zorbs and his new attraction, the aqua boats, is set to provide plenty of fun for children this summer.

The new attraction, for children between three and nine-years-old, gives youngsters the chance to sail around in an inflatable pool.

Mr Harris said: “It’s ideal – it’s an inflatable boating lake – they have been popular.”

Amusement bosses in the resort are doing all they can to attract residents to make sure this summer is a successful one.
