In response to the government's recent announcement to ease lockdown restrictions in the coming months, we are pleased to announce that we are currently planning for the Theme Park to re-open on Monday 12th April. Those who have a short break booked with us before Monday 12th April will be contacted directly by one of our friendly advisors to rearrange or organise a full refund.
Our Covid holiday guarantee
Crealy Theme Park & Resort understands we are living in unprecedented and uncertain times. Our Coronavirus ‘Book with Confidence Guarantee’ means you can book your holiday safe in the knowledge that you are covered if the Coronavirus Pandemic interrupts your plans. We will either move your booking to a later date or reimburse you in full. Please note terms and conditions apply.
What if I already have already purchased a ticket for when your closed?
If you have already purchased a day ticket with us for a date when the Theme Park is now closed, we will honour your ticket on another date once the Theme Park has reopened or we will refund you the price of your ticket. To arrange this, you can email one of our friendly advisors at email@example.com.
What if I already have a holiday booked when your closed?
If you have a holiday booked with us during the time we are closed, we can move your holiday to another suitable date or offer you a full refund. To discuss your options, please call one of our friendly advisors on 01395 233200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What will happen to my Annual Pass?
We will be freezing all direct debit payments for Annual Pass Holders and extending the expiry date for those Annual Pass Holders who have paid in full. However, the payment for November will still be taken as the process of requesting payment had already taken place prior to the announcement. Because of this, we will not be taking the payment for December to substitute this payment. We recommend you don’t cancel your direct debit as this will effect your ‘Price for life’.
Should for any reason the Theme Park remain closed after the 5th December, we will continue to freeze direct debit payment and extend expiry dates for those that have Annual Passes paid in full until the park re-opens.
In addition to these questions, if you have a holiday booked or have purchased theme park tickets outside of these dates, normal terms and conditions apply.
