I'm afraid this isn't a new event, the Resort offered exactly the same packages last year and have also offered some form of event for New Year over the past few years.I suspect the take up this year is slightly lower so that may be why we're seeing a marketing push now.

Typically the rides and attractions on offer consist of CBeebies Land and Mutiny Bay, including Sharkbait Reef as is usual for any offering at this time of year.
