GULLIVER’S boss Julie Dalton is staying positive despite coronavirus halting construction work on the firm’s Rotherham theme park.
New footage has been released, giving a sneak peek of Gulliver’s Valley, which will be home to more than 50 rides and attractions.
And managing director Julie is looking forward to providing some much-needed family fun once the virus drama has passed.
She said: “Dealing with the impact of Covid-19 has obviously made it an incredibly difficult time for everyone across the country.
“To ensure the health and safety of our staff, it has meant that we’ve had to stop construction on site for the time being.
“But we’re remaining positive as, while we could never have predicted the current situation, we do have ample flexibility built into our schedule for unknown delays or disruption so this existing downtime is currently not impacting on when we’ll be opening the doors.
“We’re also working really hard to create even better experiences, birthday party products, sleepovers and some really exciting special events yet to be revealed.”
She added: “We know how excited people across the region are about Gulliver’s Valley and we understand what an important part of the local community we are so we’ve released some amazing footage which really shows how far the project has come on and how fantastic it is all going to look.
“We’ve got many of our rides already in place and I hope our customers can get a feel for what our park is set to offer. Family fun is most certainly the name of the game.”
The new multi-million pound park, between Aston and Wales, will boast an indoor climbing centre and play area, dinosaur section Lost World and water ride Apache Falls (below).
Julie said: “We’re really looking forward to opening the gates to provide much needed family fun for all but in the meantime, we would just like to wish all our customers, old and new, the very best during this time. Please stay safe.”
