SAFARI Park bosses have unveiled plans for a new £1 million Ice Age walk around attraction.

The application for the themed outdoor educational attraction has been submitted to Wyre Forest District Council.

Highlights of the interactive experience include an ice cave, static and animatronic life-size replicas of extinct animals and a walk-through eight-metre high volcano structure.

In a document submitted to the council as part of the planning application, it states that the exhibits are to be both "educational" and "capture the imagination of visitors", providing an immersive experience so visitors can imagine what the world felt like during that period.

If planning permission is approved, it is not known when the attraction would open to visitors.

Bosses hope the new attraction follows on from the success of the Safari Park's 'Land of the Living Dinosaurs' exhibit, which opened to visitors in 2015, and Boj's Giggly Park, which opened in July.

A consultation period for the proposal will run until September 14, before the application will be up for discussion at the council’s planning committee at a later date.

Residents can view and comment on the application on the council's planning website via the reference number 17/0515/FULL.
