Vertical Adventures Park is a venture by the likes of Sony, Google, and Microsoft that aims to create a truly immersive space for children to explore the outdoors and explore different cultures in the hopes of inspiring them to explore more.
The park will be located in an old coal mine in the Yorkshire countryside and will allow kids to walk along the walls of the mine and explore the tunnels.
The area will also house a playground, a playground pool, and a cave with the potential for a mini-dungeon and waterfalls.
The company says the park will include the “first vertical adventure playground in the UK”, a play area for toddlers, and an area for the older crowd.
The company also says that the park’s space will be used for educational and recreational activities.
The park is also set to offer a “surge” area, which will include a rafting and paddleboarding area.
The business says that Vertical Adventures has received support from the UK government, with the company being funded by the UK Government’s Sustainable Tourism Fund (STF) and the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sport and Leisure.
The project was first announced in February last year, and is being backed by the BBC and ITV, with more than $6.6 million being pledged by the STF.
The STF aims to provide funding to UK-based businesses that are able to “support the development of a truly global, sustainable and inclusive tourism industry”.
In January, Vertical Adventures announced that it had raised more than £1 million of its $2 million fundraising goal, with its first funding round expected to be announced in May.
The initial investment in Vertical Adventures comes on the heels of the UK’s recent approval of a similar venture, Adventure Pass, that is currently being funded from the STM (Sustainable Tourism Fund).
