Special autism day plan at Tayto Park
AS a proud supporter and charity partner of Autism Ireland, Tayto Park is delighted to announce that on Saturday 18th November, €2 from each entry will be donated to Autism Ireland as part of ‘Autism Awareness Day’.
To support and raise awareness for Autism Ireland, the team in Tayto Park will be creating an autism friendly environment in the park with the intention of allowing families of children with autism to enjoy the facilities. Small changes in Tayto Park will include no music being played throughout the park and queues for the attractions being kept to a minimum.
Guests will be greeted by Tayto Park staff dressed in Autism Ireland branded t-shirts and will have collections throughout the day to raise much needed funds for the charity.
In preparation for this special day, Tayto Park staff have been taking part in annual Autism Awareness training with Autism Ireland.
To help parents that are attending on the day, Tayto Park have worked with Autism Ireland to create a social story (a visual guide describing the various social interactions, situations, behaviours and skills that they may encounter on the day) which will detail all attractions open on the day and help children with autism to prepare for the social situation.
Details; Entry on the day will be €14 per person with €2 going directly to Autism Ireland.
Entry includes access to Attractions in Eagle’s Nest, the Zoo & the Tayto Factory Tour.
Attractions open in Eagle’s Nest include: Steam Train Express, Honey Pot Bears, The Grand Carousel, Rocking Tug, Shot Tower, Super Hero Training Wall, The Leap Frog & Ferris Wheel.
Please note: No other attractions will be open on the day.
