RATANGA Junction, which had effected substantial savings through its winter closure, has enjoyed a good festive season with revenue up 12% in December over the previous December, says general manager, David Kliegl.

Kliegl said the good operating season had continued into January and the park expected to show a similar revenue growth this month.

He said Ratanga Junction, which opened for the summer season in November, would continue to operate a five-day operating programme - Wednesdays through to Sundays - until May 4.

Although the ride element of the park would close for the winter as it did last year, the park will remain open for corporate functions and events throughout the year.

'We have got strong bookings from the corporate sector through to the end of next year including some big international players in the run-up to the opening of the convention centre. We expect this part of our business to grow from strength to strength, particularly in view of the fact that we are one of a very small number of venues in the Western Cape that can accommodate sit-down dinners for up to 2500 people,' he said.

Kliegl said that the 350 contract staff taken on for the season had undergone extensive training.

'What is gratifying is that we have had extremely positive feedback from the public about the high service levels in the park which we believe have been the best we have achieved since opening in December 1998. The training, together with the valuable experience they have gleaned over the season, will stand these workers in very good stead and I would not be surprised if other hospitality and service organisations snap them up at the end of their contracts.'
