$9m work on Cave from next month


Share post:

The $9 million development promised by the new operators of Harrison’s Cave should be completed “over the next six to eight months”, even as the St Thomas attraction reopens early next month.

Chief executive officer of Chukka Caribbean Adventures, Marc Melville, said yesterday the COVID-19 pandemic had affected plans to construct a dry slide, a bridge over the gully, zip line and a challenge course – “four primary activities” the Jamaican company had said it would be adding to Barbados’ premier attraction to create the new Harrison’s Cave Eco Adventures Park.

“From July all the way up to December we will be starting construction and completing construction on all of the elements in the plan,” he said, with a targeted January completion date.

Chukka officially took over operations last December and at his first media briefing here the month before, Melville had announced the company would be developing the site into an adventure park offering a range of additional activities to cater to the fancy of a wider range of ages and interests, while the cave tour would remain the core feature.
