Blackpool Pleasure Beach has announced plans to reopen next month, having implemented several new safety measures.
The popular family attraction will open its gates as the government further eases lockdown restrictions, which will see a number of leisure and hospitality businesses begin trading again. In a statement released on social media, Blackpool Pleasure Beach confirmed that it plans to reopen “respectfully and safely” and “will be introducing a range of new policies and procedures to ensure our amusement park remains as safe as possible for all our guests.”
These new policies include a cap on the number of daily visitors, new e-tickets from advanced online booking, social distancing measures in queues and one-way systems around some of the park’s paths.
Each ride has been considered, with a dedicated plan developed for each. On some, rows will be left empty to help maintain social distancing and some will require riders to wear face coverings.
Members of staff will have their temperature tested each day and be supplied with the appropriate PPE. The Pleasure Beach has introduced a range of new, more frequent, and enhanced deep cleaning measures across the park, rides, and attractions.
The UK’s most ride intensive theme park was forced to close in March to help prevent the spread of the virus.
