VIDEO: Pirates open new farm attraction and add some Disney Frozen magic too!

Pirates invaded Mead Open Farm during an action-packed bank holiday weekend – which even brought ‘snow’ to the Billington venue!

The farm’s new sand and water play area (called Shaggy’s Cove) offers a taste of desert island beach not far from land-locked Leighton Buzzard, and was officially opened by special guests Captain Blackfoot and Pirate Gow.

The Great British weather is known for its unpredictable nature, but who would have guessed ‘snow’ would have fallen over the weekend - thanks to some Disney Frozen magic which was all part of the pirate crew’s repertoire (see the video).

Children love to dig and build in sand, and when you add water to the mix, it’s the perfect recipe for hours of entertainment. Pirate-themed Shaggy’s Cove features a water pump, bamboo channels for water to pour down, buckets on a pulley and lots and lots of sand.

Shaggy’s Cove joins other recent developments at the Farm such as the outdoor adventure playground called Topsy Turvy Towers, the Sky Trail High Ropes course, Giant’s Rock climbing wall and Shaggy’s huge 13sqft indoor PlayWorld to provide an action-packed day out for families.
