SEA LIFE HUNSTANTON WILL REOPEN TO VISITORS ON 4th JULY
30 June 2020
SITE WILL REOPEN WITH EXTENSIVE MEASURES IN PLACE TO KEEP GUESTS, TEAM MEMBERS AND FISHY FRIENDS ALIKE SAFE
SEA LIFE HUNSTANTON is set to fully reopen to visitors on Saturday 4th July, as national lockdown measures continue to ease.
The site team has worked throughout the lockdown to design and implement reopening measures that ensure that the attraction is safe for visitors and colleagues alike.
The following measures will be in place as a standard at all SEA LIFE sites nationally, which are all set to reopen from the 4th July:
- Online only bookings; guests will now need to pre-book a specific time slot for their visit to ensure visitor numbers remain at a safe level throughout the day
- Social distancing; queues outside and inside the attraction, plus features such as talks from expert team members, will be carefully spaced for everyone’s safety. There may also be phased entrancing in place at certain points around the site to keep groups apart while also making sure everyone gets to meet every creature on display
- PPE; while you won’t need specific PPE in order to gain admission, SEA LIFE staff may be wearing appropriate items and clothing so they can work safely. Fixtures such as clear plastic screens at check-in desks and tills may also be in-place
- Temperature checks; will be in place at all entrances for guests and team members
- Enhanced cleaning; additional cleaning will take place throughout the day and hygiene stations and hand sanitiser will be available
As with any activity post-lockdown, SEA LIFE Hunstanton asks all visitors to closely observe guidelines, maintain a safe distance from those outside their party and to keep up with good hygiene practices. If they or any of their party displays any symptoms of COVID-19, they are asked to postpone their visit and to contact the site to change the date of their booking.
Nigel Croasdale, general manager for Sea Life Hunstanton, said: “We are really looking forward to welcoming guests back and as ever, the health and safety of our visitors and staff remains our number one priority.
“We’re utilising an extensive range of safety measures, designed to ensure a happy, safe and healthy experience for all. I’m sure that after the extended lockdown, many families, particularly with younger children, will be in real need of escapism, entertainment and a way of making happy new memories with those they love.
“I know our team here in Hunstanton – plus our site’s aquatic residents – are all looking forward to offering just that.”
While SEA LIFE has been closed during lockdown, aquarists and other team members have worked tirelessly to care for the creatures SEA LIFE Hunstanton is home to, both practically via cleaning and feeding for example, but also emotionally via activities and stimuli to ensure that fishy friends who are used to a lot of interaction and excitement didn’t become bored.
