Following government guidelines, The York Dungeons are frightfully pleased to confirm they will be reopening, with the permission of their very own BoJo, on May 17th!
It’s been a difficult twelve months for everyone; however, it appears the constant questioning and misunderstanding of the lockdown rules is nearly over with Boris Johnson himself coming out to confirm that the York Dungeon is back open for business.
Family day trips have been few and far between over the past year, so whether it’s to ‘treat’ the tweens for dealing with your home-schooling classes or to get scared by something other than the news, the York Dungeons can’t wait to welcome visitors back to their historic attraction.
The spookily (in)famous UK attraction has been working hard behind the scenes to ensure they can provide visitors with their wonderfully wicked tours in line with government guidelines.
Whilst Dick Turpin, a highwayman who was executed in York in the 18th Century, is still to return to the Dungeon he’s been replaced by a character quite similar in name and in nature to cut the ribbon on opening day– the British PM.
A befuddled Boris will make appearance at 9.45am on Monday 17th May to officially reopen the attraction to let the York Dungeon’s rogues back in, alongside those peasants who dare to visit, whether they come out again is a different matter!
Once opened, our very own eagle-eyed PM will ensure that Covid-19 protocols are being followed extensively by the team, including pre-booking, temperature checks, social distancing, limited group sizes and the wearing of masks by guests and team members.
Andy Turner General Manager of The York Dungeon said: “We cannot wait to welcome faces old and new back to The Dungeons on May 17th.
“We are looking forward to getting back to what we do best, creating scary and exciting experiences for our guests. Our attraction has implemented health and safety measures, to ensure our customers and our characters feel comfortable returning to the depths of the dungeon.
“It has been a tough year for everyone, but with the end finally in sight, we are so excited to welcome people back smiling and squealing to our infamously family-fun attraction – don’t worry Boris Johnson won’t be sticking around, we have all the lovable rogues we need at the Dungeon already!”
