What are you doing about the Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

We take the health and safety of our guests and staff very seriously. We already go above and beyond normal measures of cleanliness to ensure the risk of infection is reduced within our immersive experiences, for example we sanitise each Virtual Reality headset after every usage. Since the Coronavirus outbreak we have increased our measures by introducing more hand sanitisers, re-communicated to staff with new Government advice and increased our checks in our unisex bathrooms to ensure tissues are well stocked.
