The Ice Cream Farm is reopening on Monday 13th July at 9.30am. It will be open daily, 9.30am-5.30pm. Bookings on the website will be live later this week so please keep checking. (Click here)
Visitors will be required to pre-book online before their visit. A small booking fee of £2 per person will be required to secure a slot, or a discounted £1.80 per person for VIP Play Pass holders (as well as free admission for infants under 12-months old). This will put a cap on visitor numbers to ensure families and The Ice Cream Farm team are kept safe at all times.
Pre-booked visitors on arrival will be guided to the overflow car park opposite the site, which offers easy access to The Ice Cream Farm via a pedestrian crossing. Blue badge holders will still be able to use disabled parking bays on the main on-site car park. All visitors will have a 3-hour allocated time slot, which gives as many guests as possible the opportunity to visit whilst still being able to safely comply with social distancing guidelines.
The Ice Cream Farm has been granted the Visit England 'We're Good to Go Industry Standard' accreditation, which demonstrates that the attraction is adhering to the respective Government and public health guidance, has carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and has checked it has the required processes in place.
Although indoor activities will remain closed, The Ice Cream Farm's much-loved outdoor play areas will be open, including Daisy's Garden, Strawberry Falls, Adventure Golf, Rocky Road, Silvercone racing track, Mini Scoop, Mini Tractors, and Gemstone Cove. VIP Play Pass holders can continue to enjoy discounts on plays and ice cream.
Visitors will be able to recharge their batteries at plenty of food & drink outlets dotted throughout the site, including The World's Largest Ice Cream Parlour, The Pit Stop, Pizza Piazza and Chips & Bits. For those who are more comfortable bringing their own food, The Ice Cream Farm now has a designated picnic area on site.
The newly launched 'Drive-Thru' service will also still be operating as part of the attraction's wider 'post Covid-19' strategy, with hopes that it will become a permanent fixture. Offering 30 flavours of Cheshire Farm Ice Cream, Drive-Thru customers can now order their favourite flavours at a manned kiosk with contactless payment. Ice cream is available to purchase by the scoop, as well as take-home tubs, milkshakes and cold drinks. The Drive-Thru is open 7 days a week, and from 13th July will operate with extended opening hours from 11am-5.30pm.
