All visitors will need to pre-book ticked online so the park can manage numbers to ensure social distancing guideline are maintained.
Staff are also introducing a series of additional cleaning and hygiene measures on site and queue markers are in place to help visitors keep a safe distance apart.
While the majority of rides will be reopening on Saturday, July 18, these will be suited to a younger family audience – with rides such as The Ultimate, Raptor Attack and Apollo remaining closed.
Entertainment and activities in the show barn will not take place this summer and indoor play areas will also remain closed.
Queue markings will be put in place for all rides and outlets, as well as some separation on the rides themselves.
“We’re delighted to be able to start welcoming visitors back but we also know how crucial it is that they feel safe,” said General Manager Colin Bowes
“We’ve allowed ourselves a little extra time to ensure everything is fully in place for opening on the 18th and we’re confident we’ve been able to accommodate a range of protective measures without compromising the visitor experience
“For this summer to help us manage visitor numbers and keep everyone safe, we are focusing on running the rides and parts of the Park which are more suited to a younger family audience.”
Visitors will be encouraged to leave plenty of space around their vehicles in the car park and additional cleaning stations have been installed around the park.
A number of catering facilities will be open, as well as the gift shop, and visitors will need to use contactless card payments whenever possible.
Any visitor who has a temperature, or is showing any other signs of coronavirus, will be asked to stay at home and Lightwater Valley will re-schedule their visit for a future date.
