Paultons Park in Hampshire is getting ready for a safe reopening on July 4. All the rides and attractions will be open, including Peppa Pig World.

The family theme park will provide a free virtual queuing system via a mobile app. The Paultons Park mobile app is free to download and supports the management of the social distancing measures to be put in place across the park.

Visitors will be notified via the app when it is their turn to board the ride, meaning queues for attractions can be avoided.

The ordering of food from dining facilities at the park will also be made available via the app throughout the course of the summer.

Paultons Park has introduced a series of robust security measures designed to enhance the visitor experience in a safe and secure environment. Measures include new seating plans for attractions, ensuring there are gaps between rows and seats so visitors can socially distance.

James Mancey, operations director at Paultons Park, commented on the plans in place to make the park safe. “We are proud to be one of the first UK theme parks to be offering free virtual queuing in our mobile app. We recognised that this technology would play a crucial role in our reopening strategy and accelerated our plans to bring this feature to fruition as a result of COVID-19.

“Our teams have worked hard to develop a plan for reopening that refuses to compromise on the quality of our guests’ experience, while ensuring safety remains a priority. We are confident that the app will greatly support this ambition,” Mancey added.
