Southport Pleasureland has revealed it is reopening this December with lots for families to enjoy.
Winter At Southport Pleasurerland will see the park reopen on Saturday 12 December and Sunday 13 December, and then every day from Saturday 19 December until Sunday 3 January (with the exception of Christmas Day and Boxing Day).
The reopening of one of the North West’s most popular attractions has been made possible by Southport and the rest of the Liverpool City Region being placed in the less restrictive Tier 2 Coronavirus restrictions once the current national lockdown ends next Tuesday (2 December).
The new rules will also see ‘non-essential’ shops, restaurants, gyms, hairdressers and other businesses in Southport able to reopen, while Southport FC will now be able to allow a limited number of spectators to watch home games.
To bring some much-needed festive cheer Southport Pleasureland will be creating a magical experience for visitors to enjoy.
It’s not the North Pole… but little elves are hard at work making plans to turn the park into a fabulous, festive, fun-filled family day out for you.
All of the rides will be shimmering too with gates open at 11am, with all the rides and fun starting from midday.
Father Christmas will be in his Covid-safe grotto residence. The elves have also been hard at work building a brand-new indoor ride around Santa’s workshop to give you an experience to remember, before you go on to pay a visit to Santa himself, and receive a lovely gift to take away. You’ll have the opportunity to add this extra special treat to your booking during checkout.
In the park there will also be festive food and drink, and with a few other surprises and treats planned it promises to be a lovely way to help you and your family get into the festive spirit.
All tickets and Santa’s workshop experience must be booked online in advance to enable Southport Pleasurerland to manage restricted capacity in the park.
In line with government regulations, each booking is capped at a maximum of six people who must all be in your household or support bubble.
Southport Pleasureland has introduced a huge array of Covid safe measures at the park in addition to extensive staff training to ensure that customers remain safe when the gates open.
The attraction has traditionally opened each Spring with a busy Summer and Autumn season, closing in recent years with a spectacular fireworks finale each October.
This is the first year the venue has welcomed families during this part of the year.
Park CEO Norman Wallis says: “We have been considering and planning a Winter event for some time.
“We have been open with full Coronavirus safety measures in place for many months. We know what we’re doing, what works and how to make sure people understand the part they have to play in keeping everyone safe.
“Those who have visited the park will know that we take great care over the grounds and landscaping.
“We’ve planted many Christmas trees and they, along with our existing established trees will be decorated with beautiful Christmas lights.
“All of the rides and buildings will be shimmering as the park pulls on its Winter Wow from its first weekend, starting Saturday 12 December and Sunday 13 December.
“Father Christmas – and the park is hoping to coax his reindeer to join him – will be in his Covid-safe grotto residence, and a new indoor ride around Santa’s workshop is under construction – so there will be plenty to see and do.”
