Statement regarding Super Hero Day
“Yesterday’s event did not go as we would have wished and we’d
like to apologise to those visitors who did not have a good
experience. As with all events we review the day to see what can be
We very much value the support of our regular visitors and any
visitor to yesterday’s event who feels that they are entitled to a
refund can write to the park, enclosing their original ticket or
till receipt, by the end of the week, and each case will be
considered on merit.
We are aware that there were issues with traffic congestion but
rather than close the gates and possibly compromise safety, our
priority was to clear the M4 tailback as quickly as possible and
the best way to do this was to continue to allow the flow of
traffic into the park.
Over the last few years Margam Country Park has worked hard to
offer a variety of events & activities for the visiting public,
and this has proven to be very successful. Whilst we anticipated a
good attendance for the superheroes event and had planned in
advance for a busy day the numbers who attended was unprecedented
for the park.
To put this in context, the previous highest bank holiday
attendance was on Easter Monday 2015 when 5,500 people visited the
park. Yesterday saw approximately 13,000 visitors”.
