We do not offer a discounted entry price in these circumstances neither do we provide any form of refund or compensation.
  14. On various occasions in the past there have been unforeseen breakdowns of the Thomas the Tank Engine train and the Hello Kitty rides which are unavoidable. In theses circumstances we will inform visitors before they enter the Park but we do not provide any form of refund or compensation.
