Flamingo acquires Buccaneer Bay!
Cornish-based Flamingo Marketing has acquired the Buccaneer Bay visitor attraction in Newquay.
The specialist visitor attraction marketing consultancy has taken over the running of the pirate-themed attraction this month.
Buccaneer Bay has now re-opened to the public for the summer months and will remain open throughout the season and the new owners are looking at a variety of new features and initiatives to develop the business over the coming months and years.
The attraction will also act as a permanent base for Flamingo’s consultancy business.
Flamingo Marketing’s Managing Director Nikki Smith said: “This is our first visitor attraction acquisition and it’s very exciting. Buccaneer Bay is a well-established business within Newquay and our aim is to look at ways to grow and develop the attraction. The interaction with the Pirate performers is a fantastic opportunity to really develop memorable experiences for all visitors.
“It will also provide an ideal base for our existing attraction marketing consultancy as we have outgrown our current office,” she added.
