Attraction Vaccination Policy

Government guidance stipulates that only fully vaccinated adults may enter indoor entertainment venues whereby our attractions fall under this category. It’s important that we follow these guidelines in order to operate safely, along with a range of other measures we have put in place.

You will be required to provide proof of double vaccination with one of the following documents:

 

  1. A COVID-19 digital certificate via the Service Victoria app, saved to your smart phone or printed (together with valid photo ID)

You can download your COVID-19 digital certificate using:

 

You can add your COVID-19 digital certificate to your smartphone Apple Wallet or Google Pay. Instructions are available on the Services Australia website.

 

  1. Immunisation history statement (printed together with valid photo ID)

Your immunisation history statement shows all vaccinations you have had that are recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register. This includes your COVID-19 vaccinations.

You can get a copy of your immunisation history statement on:

 

Instructions are available on the Services Australia website.

 

  1. If you can’t get proof of your vaccination online or you don’t have a Medicare card
  1. Proof of medical exemption must be provided together with valid photo ID.

This must be a Medical Exemption letter from a specified authorised medical practitioner (see ATAGI guidelines) along with Photo ID.

Children aged 12 years and 2 months and over are required to be double vaccinated unless they have a medical exemption.

Merlin Entertainments requires all staff members on site to be fully vaccinated in line with government guidance. This will not only keep our staff as safe as possible but also the thousands of guests entering our attractions each day.

Only fully vaccinated people, children under 12 years and 2 months & guests with exemptions are permitted to enter our attractions, according to current Government guidance. Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions for those who have received one vaccination; however, our bookings team is happy to work with you to rearrange a date for your visit once you have become fully vaccinated.

SOCIAL DISTANCING MEASURES WITHIN OUR ATTRACTION:

Clear markers or signage has been installed in our building entry, viewing areas, and café to help guests keep a safe distance from one another. Our employees will monitor the queues to ensure that social distancing is being maintained.
  • We have introduced new arrangements for the application of social distancing in our cafe area. Tables and chairs have been reconfigured to ensure enough distance between seated parties. In areas where strangers are seated together, seats will be removed or blocked to ensure there is a suitable gap between guests.
  • Keep an eye out for COVID safety & capacity limit signage throughout the attraction
  • We have introduced new capacity limits and time-slots. These restrictions will help ensure there is plenty of room for social distancing.
  • We have installed new hygiene screens at our service counters to help physically separate guests from employees.
  • We have revised some of our standard operating protocols in order to reduce the proximity of our employees to guests.

 

HYGIENE AND DISINFECTION MEASURES WITHIN OUR ATTRACTION:

  • As with our employees, we politely request that all our guests uphold the highest possible hygiene standards – whether it be when sneezing or coughing, through regular hand washing or the frequent application of hand sanitiser.
  • Our employees now participate in COVID-19 specific training programmes instructing them how to stay safe as well as how to keep our guests safe.

Other things to know:
