Kamloops Hotel welcomes spring with a ROAR!
The Accent Inn Kamloops leads the BC hotel chain into spring 2010 with the addition of a brand new package. “We’ve put together a great BC experience with our new BC Wildlife Park package”, said Katie Bahnsen, General Manager Accent Inn Kamloops. British Columbia and Accent Inns alike are known for our friendly people but this package let’s visitors see many of our “other” local residents.
The BC Wildlife Park connects people to BC’s wildlife and wild places. “Where else can you see bald eagles, grizzly bears, cougars, camels, bison, elk and moose all in one place?”
The BC Wildlife Park in Kamloops is home to all of these and so much more. This is a terrific attraction for the entire family.
The Accent Inn Kamloops hotel offers packages that includes a one night stay and admission to the park.
The Park offers many different kinds of experiences such as:
Highland Valley Copper Amphitheatre
The Highland Valley Copper Amphitheatre is home to our annual Summer Bird of Prey flight demonstration, fireworks displays and the Symphony of Lights during Wildlights
Our Discovery Centre includes the BC Eco-Discovery Gallery that features interactive fun and learning experiences. This gallery allows guests to explore the unique habitats of the province – Rain Forest, Grasslands, Mountains, Interior Plateaus and the North.
