Following news that a national lockdown is coming into force next week Alton Towers have said:
We are aware of the latest government announcement. We are now working to understand how this impacts our business and will notify guests in due course.Alton Towers, Twitter
It’s hard to imagine how any themepark could possibly stay open with the new rules coming into force, I guess this brings an early end to the season at all themeparks. The big question now is how they will go about reimbursing for pre-booked tickets.
And also people will be asking how they will go about re-opening the park, whether they choose to do it as early as possible, or have other plans.
No doubt the announcement will be a lot to take in for a lot of theme parks and businesses that were already struggling this year as a result of the last national lockdown.
