Supply free water at Merlin Entertainments theme parks

This petition had 22 supporters

Theme parks annually attract thousands of visitors, particularly in the summer and hot weather. These visitors have to wait in long queues, which are often in direct sunlight, to go on the rides. Drinks at theme parks are overpriced, and there is a focus on unhealthy soft drinks over water. 

The lack of access to affordable drinking water at Merlin Entertainments' parks is appalling. Lack of hydration in hot weather can lead to visitors suffering from heat stroke. Earlier today I visited Thorpe Park, one of Merlin Entertainments' most successful theme parks, and a woman waiting for a ride collapsed of heat stroke.

Merlin Entertainments is putting profit before the health and safety of their guests. I believe it is Merlin Entertainments' responsibility to supply water to its guests, and suggest they install drinking fountains in their parks and sell water at a more reasonable price.

Visitors should be able to fully enjoy their experience at a theme park, and I believe the implication of these measures will allow visitors to have fun while staying safe.
