Disappointing Visitor Numbers To Tower

Tower

12:02am 6th January 2013

Visitor numbers to Weymouth's Sea Life Tower have been "disappointing", according to operators Merlin Entertainments.

The expensive attraction that costs £3.5 million to create officially opened just before the Olympics in June.

The tower and its rotating platform take you up 173 feet where you can see right out over the bay.

It's costs £8 on the day but tickets are a little cheaper online and the ride lasts 10 minutes.

Operators Merlin blames the poor weather and poor Olympic turnout for the low numbers through the turnstiles.

They admitted turnout was "lower than expected", but reckon 2012 was a tough year for all businesses regardless.
