Important Information

We're saddened to announce that Fort Fun is currently closed.

When are you closing and why?

With onset of the pandemic, it was decided to not reopen the venue - as freeholder of the site, agreement has been reached that Eastbourne Borough Council will take the site back and the Council is developing interim plans to operate some of the kiosks on the site over the summer in order to help support the economy of the town as lockdown eases.

Partyman would like to thank all our amazing customers and staff who have supported and visited us over the last 5 years.

How long will we be closed for?

The site closed last year due to the pandemic. Eastbourne Borough Council are looking to open some of the kiosks on the site over the summer

I have a Fort Fun Membership, what will happen?

All Monthly Direct Debit payments have been cancelled.
If you have a Annual Pass we will be calling you this week however please contact us at if you have any questions.

We’re getting ready to re-open our doors!

This is a phased reopening and visitor numbers are greatly reduced.

Please read all of this notice because it contains very important information about our reopening.  

Indoor play areas are currently closed.

You must pre-book your visit

We’ve restricted our visitor numbers to provide even more space for you to enjoy a socially distanced day out at Fort Fun. We’re not running timed slots so you can thoroughly enjoy your time at the fort at your leisure.

The water park will be monitored in 20 minute sessions, but you can re-queue or enjoy the rest of Fort Fun.

Before you visit you’ll need to make sure you’ve pre-booked the date of your arrival.

Pre-booking means we can control visitor numbers, track and trace and reduce crowding.

We have gone cashless

Sorry we will not be accepting coins or bank notes on site. We’ve done this to keep you and our staff as safe as possible.

Apologises for any inconvenience.

Don’t visit with symptoms

Please DO NOT VISIT the fort if you have symptoms of coronavirus including;

  • a high temperature
  • persistent new cough
  • a loss of, or change to, your sense of smell or taste
