Bank Holidays are renowned for being popular times to visit vistor attractions, however this one appears to have been a brilliant one for a number of theme parks.
Drayton Manor, Legoland Windsor and chessington World of Adventures (at time of writing) have all reached their full capacity points, meaning no further guests – including those pre-booked – will be allowed in. An exception has been made at Legoland, where hotel guests will still be accepted into the park.
The Windsor attraction orginially announced there were no facilities left for car parking, before posting on Facebook the park was operating to its fullest;
NEW ALERT: We are sorry to confirm that the resort is now full and we are unable to accept any more guests with the exception of pre-booked LEGOLAND Hotel guests. We apologise for any disappointment caused and have liaised with the relevant authorities to communicate this via road network signage as soon as it looked likely that our car parks would approach capacity.
Also operated by Merlin Entertainments, nearby Chessington World of Adventures was also proving popular with families this Bank Holiday resulting in a second ‘no new admissions’ policy being enforced.
Independently operated Drayton Manor in Staffordshire was also experiencing similar issues, with the park also reaching maximum capacity as designated for both guest experience and health & safety reasons. The park left a simple statement on their Facebook social media outlet;
We are having an exceptionally busy bank holiday, the sun is shining and as a result, we are now at capacity so we cannot allow any further visitors….
