Merlin Entertainments, a global leader in location-based entertainment, has created an A-Z of activities and entertainment for families in lockdown this Easter with a range of videos, educational packs and live Facebook streaming all taking place.
With many of their attractions and resorts temporarily closed, Merlin staff who are working from home, caring for animals or looking after critical maintenance have pulled together to help build a range of fun activities and videos to entertain families over the Easter holiday period.
Activities range from a special ‘History Unlocked’ series at 1000-year old Warwick Castle, live LEGO build lessons from the Master Model Builders at LEGOLAND Parks and LEGOLAND Discovery Centres, live feeding and Q&A’s with a range of SEA LIFE Aquarists from around the world, a five-minute masterclass on how to build a theme park and even a live feed from the Beluga care team working in the world’s first Whale Sanctuary in Iceland.
Mark Fisher, Chief Development Officer at Merlin Entertainments said: “Merlin’s DNA is about delivering fun and entertainment to families. Just because, sadly, the physical doors to our attractions are shut this will not stop us from offering families amazing, memorable experiences. Only this Easter, we are finding creative ways to deliver that fun and learning in the comfort of their own front rooms!”
Fisher continues “Our Making Magic with Merlin content has a dedicated YouTube andFacebook page which enables families to see a huge variety of content from across our resorts and attractions around the world. Whilst we are looking forward to when we can reopen and welcome families back to spend quality time together again, hopefully this Easter content will bring some well- needed smiles and fun to families in these exceptionally hard circumstances.”
