Great Yarmouth Pleasure Beach has confirmed it will reopen on 14 April, with directors Jamie and Aaron Jones announcing a staggered return to business ahead of a full summer schedule.
Following extensive renovations, including a refurbishment of the family favourite Snails and Fairy Tales ride, the park will welcome back visitors between 12pm until 4pm, before opening exclusively during weekends.
“We plan to open for May bank holiday and once the summer season hits the plan is to be open full time,” co-director Jamie Jones told The Great Yarmouth Mercury. “Like last year we will be operating a closed gate system with limited capacity and hand sanitising to abide by Covid rules.”
Noting that he has been “pleasantly surprised” by the number of pre-bookings, Jones added that the park is now looking ahead to welcoming back visitors, and expanding its ride offering.
“We’ve got plans for a brand new ride and will be making further announcements in the next week so watch this space.”
“Our aim this year is to focus on our digital output and we’ve already done this by launching our new website, with plans for a new app later on this year.”
