POLICY FOR DIABLED
As a disabled person, you must pay the standard admission fee to Fårup Sommerland.
Against presentation of a valid escort card from DSB, a Children's escort card, a DH escort card, a membership card from the Danish Association of the Blind, one escort over the age of 18 may enter for free. This also applies to a foreign, officially issued escort card for disabled people. The card must be shown at the ticket office when entering the park.
Supervisors and employees who, in connection with their work are included as escorts, can also enter for free against presentation of a valid employment contract for the institution or 24-hour care centre as well as a letter from the management of the institution with date stamp and signature.
"SHOW CONSIDERATION CARD"
Instructions for disabled people, an "appointment card" as well as a "Show consideration" card are provided by the Information desk. The "Show consideration" card is only issued for people with a disability which means that they are unable to use the amusements' queuing systems on equal terms as the park's other guests.
To obtain a "Show consideration" card, you must enquire at the Information desk and produce a valid escort card (see above) or other form of documentation for the disabled person, e.g. medical note. The escort for the disabled person will be given a special bracelet, which makes it clear that the relevant person is responsible for the disabled person.
The "Show consideration" card provides access to the amusements for the disabled person as well as three escorts.
THIS IS HOW IT WORKS
All guests who have a "Show consideration" card can enquire at the attractions and make an appointment to try the attraction. The time is noted by the operator on the provided "appointment card". For example, if there is a 20-minute queue, you will be given an appointment 20 minutes after you have enquired. This means that you do not have to stand in the queue and wait, as you will enter through the exit after the 20 minutes have passed. The allocated appointment does not need to be used at the exact time, but from when the allocated appointment commences and one hour onwards. It is only possible to have a new appointment allocated for an amusement when the "current" appointment has been used.
The disabled guest does not need to be present to arrange the appointment. The escort who wears the bracelet provided also has the possibility to enquire at the selected attractions and make an appointment for the disabled person.
The disabled person can take three people along for the attractions of which the one must, of course, be the assistant wearing the bracelet.
It is possible to make an appointment for the following attractions:
- Hvirvelvinden (Whirlwind)
- Falken (The Falcon)
- Flagermusen (The Bat)
- Lynet (The Lightening)
- Mine Express
- Orkanen (The Hurricane)
- Træstammerne (The Logs)
For the other amusements in the park, the ordinary entrance is used under the same terms as for the other guests.
