Theme Parks and Attractions

There are some fantastic visitor attractions across the UK, perfect for days out with the family. However, lots of Changing Places users are denied the opportunity to join in on the fun due to a lack of fully accessible toilet facilities.

Changing Places provide a safe and dignified space for families to use, allowing them to experience theme parks and attractions in the same way as everyone else.

Special Considerations / Legislation:

It is important that your Changing Places toilet is easy to access within your attraction, including clear signage to direct visitors to the facility. Our design team can advise you when it comes to access requirements as well as offer tips and guidance on signage.

It is important that regular checks are made to CP facilities at theme parks and attractions. This is to ensure that all equipment is in working order and ready for the next use. Large volumes of people may be using the toilet, so hygiene and working equipment are paramount.

The Business Case:

The total inclusive tourism market is worth over £12bn1. Research shows businesses can potentially benefit from longer stays and more spend from the group where a member of the party has a disability. Providing Changing Places not only allow Changing Places users to enjoy the services available but also offer a new or enhanced stream of revenue to Theme Parks and Attractions.
