Visitors to Legoland will be required to wear masks on rides, while walking around the park and to maintain social distancing at all times. Theme parks, zoos, gyms, swimming pools and outdoor hospitality have been given the go ahead to reopen from next Monday, April 12th. Self-contained holiday accommodation is reopening too.
To maintain social distancing, rides will have some empty seats. Visitors must follows the government’s rule of six and not mix with other groups in the park.
There will be additional hygiene and safety measures in place throughout the park, including temperature checks on arrival, enhanced cleaning, one-way systems, screening in queue lines and social distancing markers in ride queues, shops, restaurants and more
Visitors can look forward to seeing 15 new Lego models made from 1.2 million bricks and featuring a host of characters such as a mini-figure scientist, a musical dragon and a family of roller-blading giraffes, which collectively took more than 8,000 hours to build.
So come to Legoland then. Have your temperature checked at the gate. Wear a mask at all times. Don’t hang with anyone outside your group. Be screened in queues. Be shouted at by muppets in yellow tee-shirts to follow the one-way system. No thanks.
It’s a Brave New World.
