Preparations are almost complete for the new main season at Clacton Pier which gets underway at the weekend.

Rides reopen for the first time this year on February 16 along with the Seaquarium and other attractions.

Winter maintenance and independent checks and inspections have taken place and a special price of £1 for main rides will be in operation.

It will be the first time that the Pier will also have its new development, including Skull Point adventure golf and Discovery Bay soft play, open for a February half term.

Operations Manager Ewelina Majewska said that it promises to be a busy nine days to kick-off the new season.

“The new undercover development has proved very popular throughout the winter – especially at weekends – and now we are looking to have the rides back in operation along with the Seaquarium,” she said.

“Other work is on-going to continue our drive towards a truly 52 week a year business and the project in the central concourse should be complete around Easter.

“It is a really exciting time for us, and the improvements we have undertaken are going down very well with our visitors.”

Around 30 new staff have been recruited and are being put through their inductions and training this week.

Due to the scheme in the central concourse, entry to the Seaquarium will be via Discovery Bay.

A new filtration system has recently been fitted and further improvements to two tanks are currently underway.

“There are some significant changes coming in the Seaquarium and some will be ready for Easter,” added Ewelina. “It is all about continuing to improve our offer and provide great value for money.”
