They said: “We are working within the physical distancing guidelines as outlined by the Scottish Government, as well as introducing additional hand sanitising stations located throughout the park and Amazonia, and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

“There will be some modifications when you come back to visit us and we’d ask that you bear with us during this period of change and adjustment to allow us to give you the fantastic day out you would usually experience at Scotland’s Theme Park.”

The park announced in April that Leonard Curtis had been appointed administrators.

In a statement at the time, bosses said it had been a “challenging few years” and they had “worked really hard to try to diversify and keep the business afloat”.
