WHAT ELSE DO WE DO TO KEEP YOU SAFE?
There are a lot of security measures you can see and of course some you can’t see as well. We monitor our whole attractions 24 hours a day and our dedicated staff are trained to ensure all our guests have a safe, secure and enjoyable time. We are proud to work very closely with the local police service and other members of the security services to ensure our security procedures are up to date and following best practice. We also work with our local and national law enforcement teams to often host plain clothed officers throughout the year which is supports our roaming wider security teams who patrol our attractions both day and night.
As a matter of course, our security team are in regular contact with specialist Government security agencies who provide regular briefings and training to our staff.
HELPING US, TO HELP YOU
As our guests we ask you to remain vigilant in alerting our staff or security teams to anything suspicious and to keep your belongings safe at all times.
