There are a lot of security measures you can see and of course the ones you can’t. We monitor the whole center 24 hours a day and our dedicated staff are trained to ensure all our guests have a safe, secure and enjoyable time. We are proud to work very closely with the security service to ensure our security procedures are up to date and following best practice. We also work with our local and National law enforcement teams to often host plain clothed officers throughout the year which is supports our roaming wider security teams who patrol our attractions both day and night.
