The theme park said the rule change comes after feedback from customers and staff. Face coverings are compulsory on all rides and play attractions, except for children under three. It is one of many safety rules in place to stop the spread of coronavirus.

A post on the Gulliver’s Valley website read: “Further to onward review, we have now introduced a system for those unable to wear face-coverings to indicate as such at the time of pre-booking. This will enable us to continue to understand the number of expected interactions, to further assess risk and to identify advanced safety measures where necessary.

"The system also offers an enhanced level in our ability to assist with contact tracing.”

Gulliver’s Valley finally opened its latest resort near Rother Valley on Saturday 11 July.

The post continued: “This shared responsibility does marginally affect the transmission risk for our staff and other guests, and so we have reviewed and renewed our covid-awareness traffic light system across all four of our theme park resorts.

“To further protect all guests and for your peace of mind, our staff members who are also unable to wear face-coverings will not be operating the rides during this time."

The changes will come into effect from Monday, 20 July. Anyone who has already made a booking should email [email protected] with their booking reference number, visit date and the number of people eligible for exemption.

Anyone over the age of three who is not wearing a face mask will have to prove their exemption.
