Clacton Pier will endeavour to ensure that as many rides and attractions as possible are available for use by guests at the Attraction. However, Clacton Pier reserves the right, without prior notice, to close and change the programme of rides and attractions and/or the Attraction's operating hours. Clacton Pier in its absolute discretion reserves the right to close the whole or any part of the Attraction at any time or to restrict the number of persons having access to the Attraction. The reason for any closure or restriction provided by this condition may include technical or operational reasons, capacity, inclement weather, special events or to ensure the safety and security of guests or if Clacton Pier reasonably considers the circumstances so require. If the whole Attraction is closed for any of the reasons set out above, Clacton Pier reserves the right to offer substitute tickets for admission to the Attraction on an alternative date in substitution for any other form of redress.
Clacton Pier, acting reasonably at all times, reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to refuse admission to the Attraction, ban from entry to the Attraction, or remove from the Attraction without any right to a refund any person who: acts in an inappropriate and/or undesirable manner whilst travelling to the Attraction whether by bus, coach or other means, where such behaviour has been reported to Clacton Pier by a reliable independent source; has been convicted of a criminal offence relating to Clacton Pier, or civil unrest at Clacton Pier property/attractions, which, in the opinion of Clacton Pier, is likely to affect the safety and/or enjoyment of other guests or staff; uses violent, aggressive, threatening, abusive, discriminatory or insulting words or behaviour or in any way behaves in a manner which may provoke a breach of the peace; climbs or stands upon fences, barriers, walls, safety fences, rock arrangements, ride structures, exhibits or any other buildings at the Attraction.
