Flambards has confirmed its reopening plans.

The popular theme park has announced that it is planning to reopen to visitors on Saturday, July 18.

In order to manage numbers and ensure social distancing guidelines are maintained, the Helston theme park said it would initially be operating with reduced capacity and all visitors will need to pre-book online.

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.

“We’re delighted to be able to start welcoming visitors back, but we also know how crucial it is that they and our team feel safe,” said manager Richard Smith.

“We’ve allowed ourselves a little extra time to ensure everything is fully in place and we’re confident we’ve been able to accommodate a range of protective measures without compromising the visitor experience.

“While the vast majority of the rides and attractions will be open we are having to temporarily close the Space Race and the indoor play area until further clarity on social distancing is made available.

“Hopefully, as guidelines allow these rides will also be able to re-open."

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 Flambards will reschedule their visit for a future date.
