Aspro Park have aquariums such as Blue Planet, Zoological and Marine Parks, Water Parks as well as Family Attraction Parks.
Mr. Findley said: “In many ways, Aspro is the perfect match for us in that they not only want the educational content for aquariums, but also can take advantage of the pure entertainment offerings like our multiplayer experiences and our bespoke roller coaster experiences in their other leisure sites.”
He added: “Our relationships with multinational leisure operators like Aspro and Merlin are an important cornerstone for our business and should provide a great opportunity for growth along with the addition of independent aquariums, zoos, museums and science centres worldwide.”
