Interlink to play key role in development of major new Nigerian leisure destination
Theme park ride specialist Interlink has been contracted to play a key role in the development of a brand new resort attraction in Nigeria which, among other responsibilities, will see the company procuring 27 amusement rides of various descriptions for the project.
The new Delta Leisure Resorts will be one of the most spectacular theme parks and prestigious leisure destinations in the southern hemisphere and the first of its kind in West Africa. Inspired by the stunning Nigerian landscape, and celebrating the rich and diverse African culture and wildlife, the main park will be situated at Oleri, Udu LG, Warri City, Delta State, and the wildlife park at Ogwashi-Uku, Asaba, capital of Delta State, Nigeria.

Both projects are being developed in partnership with the Delta State Government through a signed MoU in October 2009. And, in addition to bringing in a host of children’s, family and thrill rides from other manufacturers and suppliers, Interlink will also be providing a brand new Super Flume ride and Panoramic Tower from its own product portfolio.

“As well as supplying two of our own rides for the project,” explained Interlink Managing Director John Hudd, “we will also be acting as consultants on the project and have been contracted to source all the theme park rides, along with being responsible for the breakdown of these in the case of used rides, shipping, build-up, ride operator training and ride maintenance.

“It’s clearly a major task but our past experience and our knowledge of the market will enable us to provide Delta Leisure Resorts with an excellent range of high quality rides and attractions which will be key elements in the overall offering of the venue and which will ultimately be vital to its success.”

The contract between Interlink and Delta Leisure Resorts was officially signed at IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando, Florida, in November when Princess Abiodun Oyefusi, Managing Director of the project, visited the event to conclude contracts with several suppliers.

The Delta Leisure Resorts masterplan is based around several theme park areas, two hotel complexes with associated residential villages, a retail hub, multiplex cinema, casino,
and sports complex. The theme park zones are anchored around the retail village that represents the resort’s ‘core,’ which will ‘provide the commercial driver for the project.’ Radiating out of this central hub will be the theme park’s zones, each of which will be based on different international themes, creating a range of experiences for visitors of all ages.
