Dreamland Margate introduces free admission

Dreamland Margate's Scenic Railway rollercoaster

Dreamland Margate has removed its entry fee, switching to a wristband and pay-per-ride system of charging.

The Kent amusement park previously charged £17.95 to enter, but this has been removed by directors which were brought in to administrate the park last month.

The change takes place from this Saturday, which marks the first anniversary of the re-opened attraction.

The Duff and Phelps firm was called in to run the Dreamland’s operations last month, despite it only reopening to the public last year, following a 10-year hiatus.

Operator Sands Heritage has overseen the park acquire debts of around £3 million.
