A ride at Gulliver’s Kingdom in Derbyshire had to be stopped after a family of ducks took up residence upon its waterways, according to none other than the Derbyshire Times.
The group in question, which consists of one duck and 12 ducklings, has apparently caused quite the stir after choosing the Pirate Adventure Ride as their new home, and in turn the ever accommodating staff made the choice to close the ride down to allow them to settle in.
“We have no idea how long they are likely to remain but they’re welcome to stay as long as they like”
Lee Stacey, Resort Manager of Gulliver’s Kingdom, said: “They obviously thought that the Pirate Adventure Ride was the perfect place to call home. We didn’t want to disturb them so we closed the ride down and gave them the time they needed to get comfortable. We have no idea how long they are likely to remain but they’re welcome to stay as long as they like.”
Whether or not the ducks are being charged for the staycation remains unclear, but is nevertheless very on-trend holiday for a family to be doing this season.
