GULLIVER'S World has shared information on how it will be keeping families safe as the Old Hall attraction prepares to reopen on Monday.

The milestone in Boris Johnson's 'roadmap' to easing England's lockdown restrictions will see the children's theme park finally able to welcome back customers to the site as well as the hotel.

Among safety measures at Gulliver’s World are temperature checks on arrival, mandatory advanced booking, contactless entry and all guests over three needing to wear face coverings on rides.

The park is also operating on a limited capacity to meet social distancing requirements.

Julie Dalton, managing director of Gulliver’s Theme Parks and Resorts, said: “We cannot wait to welcome back visitors to both the theme park and our self-contained accommodation here at Gulliver’s World.

“As a family business being unable to open our theme parks for much of 2020, it has been very difficult and we are now looking forward to having our customers back in our parks in as safe a way as possible.

“We know from coming out of the first lockdown that people will be cautious in their approach to travel and visiting entertainment, but we also know that many are desperate for some normality and to enjoy family fun.

“Our teams are ready to return and we look forward to seeing families enjoying time together on rides and experiencing some Gulliver’s fun soon.”

New north west attractions are ready to launch out of lockdown too such as outdoor adventure park Bewilderwood and Forest Holidays at Delamere Forest.

Nicola Said, commercial director at Marketing Cheshire, added: “As a country, we’ve all been counting down to each milestone of the roadmap out of lockdown, so to finally have April 12 within reach and be able to launch so many amazing new attractions for the region is fantastic.

“Not only are we looking forward to returning to those much-loved places we’ve all missed so much, but we now have a whole host of things to add to our lists.

“It’s vital that we all stick to the guidance of hands, face, space and fresh air; staying local; and minimising travel, so that the attractions and businesses we all love can remain open and flourish.”
