CHOCOLATE lovers have something to get excited about now that bosses at Cadbury World have confirmed when the attraction will reopen.

A raft of new safety measures have been put in place at the family tourist attraction, which is set to reopen on Saturday, July 18.

Visitors will be able to pre-book tickets online from midday on Tuesday 7th July, which is World Chocolate Day.

Ahead of the doors opening, several changes have been implemented by the Cadbury World team to help keep visitors and employees safe.

Measures include reducing the numbers of guests admitted each day, social distancing stickers laid out on the floor to guide people around the attraction, plus hand sanitising stations throughout.

On arrival, everybody will also have their temperature checked before entering.

Guests will still be able to catch the chocolatiers in action in the Chocolate Making zone, practice their piping skills in the Have A Go zone and experience the sensation of riding on the Crunchie Rollercoaster in the 4D Chocolate Adventure zone.

The famous Cadbury characters, such as Freddo and the Caramel Bunny will also return on weekends and throughout school holidays, offering socially distanced selfies and meet and greets for visitors.

Cadbury World has also extended its opening hours on weekends and during the school holidays to help spread visitors out throughout each day.

Gerrard Baldwin, general manager at Cadbury World, said: “The health and safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority and the whole team has been working incredibly hard over the past three months to introduce our new hygiene and safety measures.

“We’re delighted to announce that we will be reopening our doors on Saturday 18th July, and we ask that all visitors pre-book tickets to the attraction before setting off. Tickets go on sale from midday on World Chocolate Day, Tuesday 7th July.

“We’re looking forward to reopening and welcoming back our visitors for a day choc-full of fun.”
