Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement

(updated 30th June 2020 @2pm)
Day Entry Update

We are happy to announce we are planning a phased reopening of Woodlands Family Theme Park on Monday 6th July 2020.

Annual Pass holders will receive priority booking on Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th July. Day visitors will be able to book tickets for Wednesday 8th July until the 24th July initially. From the 3rd July any remaining allocation for our first 2 days of opening will be released to day visitors. This will only be offered if there is availability after priority booking for our Annual Pass Holders. Tickets from 25th July onwards will be released at a later date and will be announced on our website, and social media pages.

The health and safety of our team and guests is our highest priority, and therefore there are some changes which have had to be put in place to follow Government Guidance. One of these is that all visits will need to be booked online and prior to arriving at the park. This is to ensure that we can manage capacity, essential controls and all of our guests are able to feel safe & comfortable with the restricted guest numbers per day. This will be for a full day out at the theme park as we have chosen not to introduce part day sessions.

Our £15 discounted day entry tickets are now available to book. There will be a 50p booking fee to secure each space (already included within the price), there will be no profit made from this fee. The booking fee is a temporary measure whilst Government restrictions are in place, as soon as we can we will remove this. Please note discounted entry prices are also subject to change.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the park.

Annual Pass Holder Update

We are happy to announce we are planning a phased reopening of Woodlands Family Theme Park on Monday 6th July 2020.

We would like to thank you for your continued support and understanding during this very difficult time, therefore we will be extending all annual passes that were active on the 21st March 2020 by 5 months (even ones not collected yet). This will be done automatically, we will not be issuing you with new cards.

The health and safety of our team and guests is our highest priority, and therefore there are some changes which have had to be put in place to follow Government Guidance. One of these is that all visits will need to be booked online and prior to arriving at the park. This is to ensure that we can manage capacity, essential controls and all of our guests are able to feel safe & comfortable with the restricted guest numbers per day. This will be for a full day out at the theme park as we have chosen not to introduce part day sessions. There will be a 50p booking fee to secure each space, there will be no profit made from this fee. It is a temporary measure whilst Government restrictions are in place, as soon as we can we will remove this.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back to the park and have dedicated the full allotted spaces to annual pass holders on the first two days of opening as priority booking. This will be for Monday 6th July and Tuesday 7th July. All annual pass holders will have the opportunity to book a place for these days up until Friday 3rd July at 10am, before the remaining allocation for these days will then be released to day entry guests. Please be assured that we have reserved ample space on all of our open days for our annual pass holders, we will continue to monitor this once the tickets have been released to ensure you are able to book.

The first phase of tickets to be released will be from Monday 6th July until Friday 24th July.

This is to allow us to make alterations and improvements to the booking system should any further Government guidance be released. Further dates will be released in due course and will be announced via our website and social media.

Please see www.woodlandspark.com/your-visit/faqs/ for our FAQ’s relating to re-opening.

In response to the current situation developing regarding Covid-19 and the most recent advice from the UK Government and Public Health England we are extremely sorry to announce that Woodlands Family Theme Park and Woodlands Caravan and Camping Park will be closed until further notice.

This is not a decision that has been made easily having already implemented many additional measures to protect both our guests, staff and suppliers. However, at this point in time we feel this is the only and correct course of action available to us in order to limit social interaction in line with the recommendations laid out by the Government.

We know this will be disappointing news, particularly to those who have planned a visit soon with us, but as a family run business the health and well-being of our guests and staff is, and always has been, our top priority and we hope you understand and support our decision to close.

Our campsite opens from Friday 27th March for the season. We recognise that the situation is constantly changing, and we would like to reassure you that we are closely monitoring the developing situation and following Government guidance.

We have hand sanitiser stations situated throughout the park for our guests to use as well as plenty of hand washing areas and providing information to all guests with advice on basic personal hygiene to help avoid the spread of germs. Industrial antibacterial sprays are in place for cleaning and staff are instructed to deep clean surfaces, door handles and areas of high use along with their normal cleaning procedures. With these measures we want to welcome our guests for a great day out.

We would advise you, to protect yourself and others:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
  • Bin the tissues, and to kill the germs wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Wash your hands regularly, although hand sanitisers can be used it’s more effective to wash hands with soap and water (especially after visiting our farm and animal areas).
  • Always wash hands before eating.
  • Where possible we encourage all guests to use a contactless payment method.
  • Keep appropriate distancing between guests in areas where people normally congregrate (for example queue lines and restaurants).

Any changes to our current plans will be updated through our website and social channels.

We are open every weekend in March & daily from 27th March.
