Welsh funfairs and theme parks are to reopen as of 26 April, following the latest guidance from first minister Mark Drakeford, delivered on 1 April.


The government schedule, which seeks to take the country into Alert Level Three by 17 May, provides specific guidance for outdoor attractions and hospitality.

“The sacrifices we have all made are having a positive effect in the battle against Coronavirus,” said Drakeford. “This last year has been incredibly difficult for all of us and again I want to thank everyone for their efforts.”

“These efforts have allowed us to gradually ease the restrictions, to gradually introduce more elements of normal life. With the weather improving, with more opportunities to see family and friends, there are reasons for optimism.”

The announcement was met with enthusiasm by outdoor attractions across Wales, following months of enforced closure that included the traditional Easter period.

“We are so excited to be welcoming you back to Oakwood Theme Park for fun and thrills this season,” said a spokesperson for Oakwood Theme Park in Pembrokeshire. “We intend to kick start our 2021 Season on Friday 30 April, subject of course to the requirements set out in today’s update continuing to be met.”
