Rand Farm Park continues to enjoy growth with further new attractions.

The park, near Wragby, has just installed Kangaroo Bouncers, which at 17m x 9m are a cross between a bouncy castle and a trampoline.

And now Easter is over, the park is installing a Skyrider, a claimed world first attraction from Wales that features huge slides, offering free-flying with users strapped to a harness.

The new attractions follow a £950,000 ‘funding arrangement’ with Royal Clydesdale Bank, which will also help it offer extra animal care courses for nearby Lincoln College.

Director Richard Waring said visitor numbers have increased from 13,000 a year when the park first opened in 1996 to 100,000 a year.

He and wife Kay created the venture as pig farming was in “dire straights” and it was the best use of existing facilities.

Over the years it has grown with new attractions including playgrounds, adventure grounds and an indoor play barn. There is also tractor and trailer rides as well as the usual farm animals to hold and feed, plus tearoom and coffee ‘baa.’

Business is increasing, as the economy grows, with staff numbers set to increase by five above the current 40.
