The theme park in Melton Mowbray shut the parks play following an end of year trip that left “at least 30 kids suffering throughout the night.”

Schoolkids from Springbank Primary School, visited the Twinlakes Family Themepark on Wednesday for an end of year treat. 

But things took a turn overnight as children developed symptoms of nausea and diarrhoea with parents sharing their worries on Facebook.

Simon Taylor who accompanied his two sons on the trip told The Nottingham Post: “My youngest was sick first, an then my eldest was also ill and it went on through the night. 

“I heard all the other parents were saying their children were sick, all with exactly the same symptoms”

“We’ve not had much sleep. It was a hot day and they were all running around, so I assumed it was too much heat exposure. 

“But then I heard all the other parents were saying their children were sick, all with exactly the same symptoms. I think there are around 30 now.” 

Amy Braithwaite’s children Chelsea, 11, Kobi, 9, and Keira, 4, also suffered from stomach ache, headaches and vomiting. 

She said: “My oldest is feeling bad. I’m just quite shocked because she doesn’t get ill often. It doesn’t seem right. 

Public Health England East Midlands said in a statement: “PHE is currently investigating reports that a number of visitors to Twinlakes Family Theme Park, in Melton Mowbray, are experiencing diarrhoea and vomiting. 

“PHE East Midlands health and safety executive and Melton Borough Council are working with the theme park to investigate the reports and ensure that any necessary public health actions are taken. 

“As a precautionary measure, the water play area will be closed until further notice.”
