Following the government announcement about the opening of leisure and tourist attractions, West Midland Safari Park has confirmed it will be reopening fully to the public on July 4.

The park has been partially open to the public since June 15, enabling visitors to drive through the four-mile safari. On July 4, the site will reopen its walk-through attractions, as well as its rides, restaurants, and shops.

Comprehensive safety measures are in place at the safari park, including the regular disinfecting of public areas, additional hand sanitiser stations, a limited number of people entering the restaurants and shops, and the installation of signage to ensure social distancing rules are adhered to.

West Midland Safari Park has also implemented a product known as ‘Zoono’ to help protect visitors and staff. Zoono is an antibacterial spray, which, when applied, lasts for 30 days. The spray is designed to significantly reduce the spread of harmful bacteria and virus, including Covid-19.

Chris Kelly, managing director of West Midland Safari Park, commented: “We welcome the news that we can now open the rest of the Park, including the Adventure Theme Park. Our teams have been working incredibly hard to prepare all areas of the Park, ensuring our guests have a safe and enjoyable visit.

“Some of the new safety measures include leaving empty seats and rows on the rides, social distancing measures for the queues, kiosks and restaurants and limiting our daily admission numbers. We will be encouraging guests to continue to book online, so we can adhere to government guidance and safely manage how many people we admit to our Park. We look forward to welcoming more guests back soon and hope they have a great day with us.”
