The amusement park will reopen in April and it has dropped entry fees
Dreamland Margate is waiving its £5 entry fee when the main amusement park reopens on 6 April 2019, allowing guests to explore the vintage park again and again over Easter and pay per ride if they wish.
There will be queue jump and discounted wristband options for non-members who book their visit online in advance at www.dreamland.co.uk, while Dreamland Members will have unlimited rides and further perks throughout the spring and summer.
The new visitor incentive, valid until 24 May, has been launched in recognition of a momentous year ahead for Margate, when the Turner Prize will be hosted at Turner Contemporary.
CEO Eddie Kemsley, who rejoined the company in January 2019, said the move was about creating a sense of togetherness for the swell of visitors expected to journey to Margate this year and to prepare for Dreamland’s 100th anniversary in 2020.
Dreamland is one of the oldest surviving amusement parks in the world, and was reimagined and revitalised in 2015. The 12-acre park has 24 vintage theme park rides, including the famous and much-loved Scenic Railway wooden rollercoaster.
The park reopens on 6 April 2019 for weekends, Bank Holidays, and from Wednesdays to Sundays during the school holidays.
