AT TROPICAL WORLD
A cheeky colony of adorable meerkats will welcome back visitors to Tropical World when the attraction reopens to the public next week.
The famously curious creatures will once again get to meet their fans when the site is now open with the public also getting the chance to safely enjoy the site’s spectacular collection of animals, insects and plants from across the globe.
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic, the Leeds-based zoo has been closed since 18 March and has since been putting in a range of additional safety measures including:
- Hand sanitising stations throughout the attraction
- Allocated time slots for arrival for online bookings
- A reduction in capacity, allowing for social distancing between groups
- Additional floor markings and signage, including a one-way system and capacity limits for each zone
- A mandatory requirement to wear a face covering at all times, unless exempt due to age, disability or health reasons
- Heightened cleaning schedules throughout the day
Visitors will be able to explore all parts of the zoo including the desert house, butterfly house and aquarium where they will be able to see meerkats, crocodiles, monkeys, exotic birds, insects and much more.
With a reduced capacity limit being introduced to help with social distancing, visitors are encouraged to pre-book their tickets online at https://tickets.tygit.com/tickets/buy-now/attractionId/180/l/1 to guarantee a place and select a timeslot for arrival.
