There is great news today for amusement park lovers as Tayto Park is set to reopen next week.
In a brief statement, Ireland's biggest theme park and zoo said it is "delighted to announce that in accordance with government guidelines it will reopen on the 29th June at 9:30am, tickets will be available to purchase today from 4:00pm at www.taytopark.ie".
Tayto Park had announced their reopening earlier this month for the 18th June. This decision was delayed after a review of regulations.
But your patience has paid off as the park, located near Ashbourne, Co. Meath, will open its gates to the public at the end of the month.
This is great news for fans of the Kilbrew site, and home of the Cu Chulainn coaster, who were initially told it could be August before it would reopen.
Here are some of the changes to be expected when visiting the Tayto Park:
- Pre-booking is essential to gain entry to the park. Admission to the park will be capped at 10 percent of its usual capacity.
- Every second space in the car park will be kept free to ensure a two-metre social distance for those unloading their car.
- The temperature of every visitor is to be checked before admission is granted.
- A limited number of food outlets will be open in the park. Concession stands will operate normally with social distancing in place.
- Some attractions will remain closed as they cannot be operated while adhering to social distancing.
