Guest Questions

Yes, all guests will need to wear a face covering when visiting our attraction as a condition of entry. Face coverings are not required for children under the age of 11 or for people with certain health conditions and/or disabilities. In addition, visitors will see our guest-facing employees wearing Personal Protective Equipment including facemasks and visors.  Hygiene screens have been installed in front of many of our food stalls and shop counters, and we have installed social distancing markers throughout our attraction. 

We have implemented an extensive range of safety measures across the attractions. For more details, please see our Know Before You Go page

We’re restricting the number of guests who can visit each day, to ensure we can maintain social distancing in all areas of the attraction. 

Our toilet facilities will be open for guests and we have introduced new measures within these facilities to ensure spatial distancing. Enhanced cleaning will take place throughout the day.

Team members and guests are asked to participate in a temperature check using a non-touch thermometer. Anyone who is displaying a temperature above 37.8 degrees Celsius will unfortunately not be allowed to enter. In this event we will gladly rebook your visit when convenient and at no additional cost; we do not expect anyone to be penalised for doing the right thing.

Visitors with certain health conditions and disabilities related to higher bodily temperatures should speak to the attraction team upon arrival to ensure we can provide the correct assistance on an individual basis. If any member of your household is displaying COVID-19 symptoms, you should rebook your visit for another day.
