West Midlands Safari Park has shut its doors for the second day in a row today (March 10) as a result of heavy snow hitting the region. The decision comes amid a Met Office yellow weather warning in place until 2pm.
The attraction made the announcement on its social media channels on Thursday afternoon, saying: “We have made the decision to keep our gates closed tomorrow, Friday 10th March, due to the forecasted snowy weather conditions which are expected to continue overnight.
West Midlands Safari Park closed due to poor weather conditions for the first time on Thursday (March 9). Officials had been hoping to be back open on Friday, but have apologised for any inconvenience caused.
A spokesperson said: “We’re sorry for any disappointment caused to guests who were planning on visiting, but hope that you understand that our priority is to ensure that our animals are kept safe and warm while the Park is closed.
“Guests staying in our Safari Lodges on Friday night will also be contacted in due course. We hope to open again on Saturday 11th March, but will continue to assess conditions over the next 24 hours.
It continues: “If you have pre-booked tickets, we’ll be sending an update via email, so you can book online for another occasion. We’ll announce any updates on our social media channels!”.
