Visitors to The Falkirk Wheel could soon enjoy even more activities as the local attraction seeks new partnership.

While visitors to The Falkirk Wheel can already sail on a boat trip, walk on water in inflatable zorbs, enjoy laser tag and put their piloting skills to the test in floating dodgems, Scottish Canals is seeking to partner up with innovative activity providers to offer an array of new activities.

Over 500,000 people pay a visit to the attraction every year and interested businesses are being urged to contact Scottish Canals for more information.

It’s hoped the new activities will be in place by summer this year.

Katie Hughes, director of estates and commerce at Scottish Canals, said: “Each year, hundreds of thousands of people travel from all over the world to visit The Falkirk Wheel and we’re always looking to develop new experiences in order to encourage them to return.

“From zip lines running from the top of the Wheel to climbing walls set in its shadow, we’re open to all ideas. I’d encourage any businesses who think they could offer something revolutionary for our visitors to experience to get in touch.”

The Falkirk Wheel attracts visitors from all over the world as it combines modern engineering and technology with ancient principles.
