    The only consolation is when this is all over, people are going to be ready for a blow-out. I think hospitality and leisure industries will see a surge in Q3

    Many firms have already promised staff parties "after the peak".

    The queue for Guest Services has already started forming, is currently 180 minutes long and cattle-penning outside Alton station.

    I wonder if it will reopen this side of the summer holidays? I would say doubtful.

    Looks like the mountain bike will be coming out on Saturday instead then! Only wanted a walk around the gardens and towers but that can wait. Correct decision in the end :)

    Well this is gonna be a very boring crap year and I'm now very triggered by this outbreak. It won't be over til june aswell. The fact I now have to wait that long when I've been looking forward to going since the park closed. It's the right decision but this virus will pay by my godly force and rage

    Go Barry.
    King Inas Rocks and the walk through the valley from the Churnet are really good.
    A good hours walk, coming out right behind the new hotel.
    Half the gardens are still outside the fence.
    Edit...bike ride up the old railway line for a solo picnic as well for afters.

    Could not agree more. Can't believe that Merlin even planned to open in the first place. Why do I bet that the decision was made via Google - only when they saw all the competitors were closing did they follow suit?

    Yeah, I've already done that a couple of times over the years. Will most likely just do a bit of cycling but will look into other options tonight and tomorrow depending on weather :)

    There must be some seriously stupid and deluded decision makers in Merlin for it to have gone this far. Maybe they're also climate change deniers.

    Not at the moment there's not. Nothing will be open apart from the shops in a week or so

    Shops open but empty shelfs, apart from all the vegan stuff, notice that you can get that stuff quite easily
