He goes on a journey down memory lane to the North Wales shore, where he spent many family vacations, in search of his old beloved camper.
As he socialized with employees and owners, Sunnyvale’s general manager, Aaron Scantlebury, characterized him as “briliant, gorgeous, and incredibly accommodating.”
“As an award-winning park that has invested millions of pounds over the past few years, we were approached by the makers of the program who wanted a park that would appeal to their audience demographic,” he told North Wales Live.
“We spent some time talking to Ricky, who arrived in his camper and expressed his love for North Wales and reminisced about his previous visits.
“He spent some time in the bar, where he amused everyone for a few hours and regaled them with numerous stories and adventures.
“Some were incredibly moving, while others were extremely amusing. With his string vest and trousers, he came dressed like Jim Royle, and he was brilliant, charming, and quite helpful.
“The staff adored him, and he mixed in with our normal campers who had no idea he was coming.
“We had a fantastic time. He’s somewhat of a national treasure.”
