Merlin High Court Trespass Injunction
Tuesday 26th June 2018
Merlin Entertainments the group behind Thorpe Park, Alton Towers etc has obtained a high court injunction in order to deter unauthorized access to any of its attractions. This comes after in the past few years some Youtuber’s and Urban Explores have broken into the park after hours and in some cases climbed up rollercoasters, putting themselves in danger and risking damaging private property.
The High Court injunction currently names 3 individuals and unidentified associates, however from the Merlin Entertainments website its hoped that this injunction will deter any future trespassing.
Signs warning about this injunction have been added to the front of Thorpe Park and Legoland Windsor, we suspect more will be added to other parks over the next few days.
More information and High Court injunction can be found on the Merlin Entertainments website:
