Bingo is still one of the best-loved attractions on British holiday parks – but today, adrenaline-fuelled adventure sports are adding to the number of favourite family pastimes.

That’s the finding of Park Holidays UK which has been analysing which attractions are receiving the most clicks on its website (www.ParkHolidays.com).

Without a doubt, says director Tony Clish, the chance to scoop a prize jackpot remains a major draw for many people, and is the winning link on the website’s attractions page.

But when they haven’t got their eyes down, park visitors are now eyeing up a wide range of other ways to get their holiday thrills.

On the park group’s “Things To Do On Holiday” page, attractions which click the most after bingo are  watersports, golf, boating, fishing and country walking.

The results, believes Tony Clish, suggest that families are choosing holiday parks to enjoy a broad range of traditional and modern pastimes – from jackpots to jet-skis:

“Bingo just carries on getting more and more popular on our parks, and we give away thousands of pounds in prizes every night in summer,” said Tony.

“However, our website survey reflects what our park managers tell us – that people are increasingly seeking out new types of activity to enjoy, including white-knuckle experiences.

“We now have holiday advisers on all of our parks, and they say that last summer they were busier than ever pointing people to activities such as water skiing, para-sailing and mountain biking.

“Slightly less energetic but still very popular are pastimes such as angling, playing golf, pony trekking and rambling in the countryside,” he added.

Meanwhile, said Tony, Park Holidays UK is planning to increase its number of bingo pay-outs still further in 2012, and to introduce even bigger nightly jackpots.

The group’s biggest single windfall last year went to a 21-year-old guest fromBirmingham, Laura Wheeler, who scooped £12,500 at Golden Sands holiday park inSouth Devon.

Special offers for summer 2012 – plus that list of popular attractions – are now available on Park Holiday UK’s website at www.ParkHolidays.com
