I was at legoland yesterday they wanted to see tickets for discount off price, annual premium family price was £129, I got the £15.99 club card tickets so didn't get it, don't want to pay anymore than £85 so hoping that a deal comes up!
When I got mine they just needed to see the tickets. I had two Sun tickets which clearly hadn't been paid for, and one Clubcard ticket that again had Clubcard all over it. Maybe different sites do it differently?
The discount was definitely dependant on the price paid as he queried which tickets we had, I said online ones and he said as you paid this amount you would get this amount off

Well done Sim. Glad it work out for you the same as it did for me!
I've been to Alton Towers twice this week and both times were extremely quiet. I walked straight onto Rita at 2 in the afternoon.

Is there a pass for just the London attractions like Eye, Aquarium, Dungeons etc?
Thanks.
The sale is over, so passes are now full price again.

You can get a pass with Tesco vouchers (dont forget that you can get topcashback to convert some of your cashback into tesco vouchers - I think it is £50 per year)

The sale is usually every year in January, so perhaps wait till then.

They MAY do one in the summer (they did last year, but usually it is January only)

Just to also say, if you live locally to a Merlin attraction and looking for a job, then there are some great employee perks to be had from just 6 months of employment i.e. free premium annual pass, x-amount of annual passes at highly-discounted rates, x-amount of free day passes and more. I'm not an employee very much in-the-know so it's worth looking at :D
Just had a few days at AT. Very quiet, no queues, very obvious and thorough checks on the rides. As a former HSE inspector,with Fairground responsibility I was quite happy to renew my passes. Always worth adding one premium pass to access the free parking. £6 a time otherwise.
Would love one of these!

This seems like a great deal.
Rollercoasters break down all the time, but very few people are injured on them compared to the amount of people that ride them. Don't see why people have to blow it out of proportion.

Oh god here we go again bring on the haters and people complaining about it being cheaper in the past, more or less everything was cheaper in the past but since no one has invented time travel and this will be the cheapest price of 2015 so take it or leave it but please don't hold on to the price of the past.
It is also the highest price that it has been this year.
Erm the only price they have been this year? Not really a convincing argument though.
Not exactly a hot deal then is it? Still for those who still want one, go via quidco sealife site for 10% cash back.

Thanks for that tip, I'll do that when i buy mine, less pass holders means shorter queues to get on the rides!

We went to Chessington a couple of times last year and concluded that if you visiting during a school holiday you either have to buy fast passes at extra cost or be prepared to queue for about an hour for each ride.

The staff are really, really laid back and are in absolutely no rush to get people on quickly/efficiently.

Wish they'd put a deal on via Clubcard again. That's going to be the only way these things are affordable as an 'every year' thing from now on.
As it is, we keep it to every other year as the kids get too much 'theme park fatigue' to make them worthwhile every year.
they are doing this onehttp://www.tesco.com/clubcard/deals/product.aspx?R=393
That's the standard price though.

Two years ago the then-standard price of (IIRC) £42 in vouchers was reduced to £35, making them a real bargain. Ever since then however the price rocketed to £48/50 and had never to my knowledge been discounted on Clubcard again.

I'm going next week to Alton towers and getting tickets included in the price of splash landings hotel,do you think I could use these against buying annual pass ?


Edited By: jopsey on Nov 01, 2014 22:38: spelling
We bought passes yesterday.. Had initially used Tesco vouchers to buy two adult day tickets to alton towers, when we visited we paid £15 each for an anytime return ticket. When we visited yesterday passes were reduced to £119 or £159 for a premium pass. We chose the £119 tickets, they take off the cost of a full adult ticket regardless of what you have paid. Resulting in paying £71 each for an annual pass! Bargain...
if you use a 2 for 1 voucher to get in, they deduct the full price off the MAP hence will save more if you purchase at an attraction
Personally I'm holding out for the January sale but there's obviously a risk it doesn't run or that the discount isn't as good as in previous years.
If anyone is planning a trip to a couple of Merlin attractions in October and can start using their passes before some places close, then this deal is worth having.
I paid £79 in march. Every year for the last 4 yrs price has dropped after January. may as well wait as most attractions closed of limited shortly.

Merlin entertainments have given me terrible customer service. Rude staff and still waiting for a refund they agreed to at the start of April.

Thanks for taking the time to open this thread and post your thoughts. Much appreciated. I can only think it's your own behaviour causing the rudeness as in the countless times I've been with my family over the past few years, I can't think of 1 occasion to grumble about the customer service at any Merlin group attraction.

Are you an employee of theirs by any chance? You sound very much like the people I have had to battle with to finally get my refund, which they agreed after a polite and well written feedback e-mail. The rude staff were more in the offices I had to phone rather than the attraction so my behaviour was not responsible for requiring a refund. I had been promised one, then left in the dark. Promised tickets as an apology then left in the dark again.

Just because YOU have never received bad service does not mean other people have not and judgement should not be passed until the circumstances are fully known!

No, only a customer. I was just offering my experience that I've never had bad customer service despite their being things to grumble about. Every retailer will have annoyed someone but can you imagine if in every deal posted, people posted their bad experiences of the company?

I went to Legoland with my son. Used my Tesco Clubcard coupon for my entry and paid £41.40 for my sons entry fee.
Then went to Annual pass shop inside Legoland and upgraded to an Annual pass for my son & I.
I added on my nephew as I thought this would be nice for him, but it was also cheaper per person to do so.
They took a picture of his photo and his address.
I paid 44.25pp to upgrade.
My outlay that day for 3 annual passes was £174.15 + £4 for parking cool huh!

Went in with my pass which is due to expire on the 7th June.

Went to the annual pass shop by customer services and said I'd seen the offer but didnt have my ticket for the refund.

"No problem, I've got spares here" after which she deducted £48 from the cost of the already discounted pass.

One individual pass for £71. Bargain!

Incidentally... gate price for 2 adults plus 4 kids is £250 for ONE day at Legoland. (Advance online price = £190).
Versus £500 for an annual pass...
There is always 2-4-1 at these places so £250 for 6 is never going to happen unless they stop 2-4-1 or you buy without the voucher. Never heard anyone going in pair paying the full price.

No, I agree. Although some people still pay gate price, I assure you... But, even at £125 for a day out, this means only 5 days out across the whole year for a saving.
I'm biased since I live so close to lots of the included attractions. We use our passes every month, so great value for my little family. AND you get fast-tracked on the London Eye which is AWESOME (the fast-track part, that is). No queuing, no tickets, just straight up to the front and walk onto a pod. With 2 small kids that's a major bonus :D
We use the pass almost every alternate week. I agree it is fun when you dont have to Q. :).

Hi help needed looking at getting merlin passes for my boys main xmas pressies do i get them before or after xmas as looking for the best deal i can get as having to buy 6 of them.

In recent years the Xmas sale has been marginally better (circa £10 per head) but that doesnt mean that there will be a sale this year or if it will be any better. Aslo you have to queue and get them after boxing day rather than upload you photo and buy online which you can do now.

If you have them delivered (FOC) they will activate now, whereas if you colect them on your next visit they will activate on that day. ie you could buy today online and pick up at alton towers in March and they would be valid until next march...

Get them on Boxing Day - should be 38% off
but don't you have to queue at a venue to get them. if you get them now you can have them posted to you. I don't need mine till feb so I will buy them and choose to pick them up in feb in blackpool. that way they will be valid until feb 2015

Here's what the tesco deal says:

Gift Pack includes: 1x Gift Voucher for a Standard Individual Merlin Annual Pass in a special presentation wallet 1x Lanyard to display your Pass 1x Gift Voucher to collect a re-fillable drinks capsule at any of the theme parks which gives unlimited soft drinks all year 1 x Merlin Annual Pass car sticker

We are a family of 4 and have a load of tesco vouchers. I was thinking of buying the £50 deal on the tesco clubcard site as you get an annual parking pass and free ulimited drink, then buy 3 x pass at family rate for £222. This seems to be better than spending another £46-£50 on tesco vouchers and then 2 passes for £200...

Can anyone tell me if there is likely to be any better deals coming up or whether this makes sense. My youngest son is 5 and unlikely to be able to go on a lot of the rides. Does he still have to have a full on pass? Finally will we be able to use these passes on their own (Have a teenage son who is likely to go to things with his mates)


Thanks


unfortuntaly you cannot get a reduced childs pass and it depends on where you are most likely to go as to whether your 5 year old will benefit. We got a family pass for the 1st time last year as we live near alton towers and warwick castle. Both of these are free to under 4's (some places like legoland charge from 2 years I think?) but I have a 6 year old and a just 4 year old who I needed to get passes for. We have had a brilliant time, in the summer we went on a saturday/sunday once a month to Alton towers (me and three boys age 3-6) as my other half works weekends. There was lots for a little one to do - some more babyish things like the farm/story book area but they can do older rides (if you dont mind going on with them) like charlie and the chocolate factory, hex, driving school, runaway mone train etc. We never felt that we had to do the same rides over and over again and if it was too busy because we knew we could come back soon we didnt feel ripped off. Dependant on height you will be surprised how much a 5 year old can do at Alton towers. Our best day was going for the holloween scarefest - lots of shows for little ones and its on for about 3 weeks so we went before halloween to avoid it being too busy. As its open longer at halloween we were able to go on the runaway mine train in the dark which they thought was brilliant!

We bought our passes in april last year and they were about £15 per person more than this offer. Yes you can use the passes on your own or as a group. When friends have been visiting alton towers they have taken my older son without me as he has his own pass - each pass is individual with a photo id.

I also upgraded just one pass (its cost me £35) but then I got free parking which applies to both warwick castle and alton towers - sorry not sure which other attractions it covers.

We also get 20% off in the merlin shops and this does apply to some of the photo offers. You can also get into Alton towers at 9am instead of 10am which is useful in peak season and for warwick castle I have been able to take friends and family for just over £10 each - there is a discounted book in advance price for all the merlin attractions included in the passes. I was also able to buy a reuseable merlin drinks bottle - cost £16 but its refilable all season (jan - jan) for free so it worked out for us - they refilled it at alton towers and warwick castle but again I dont know it applies to all attractions. Just had to grab passes, drinks bottle and a couple of sarnies and we were set for the day.

We have had a brilliant time with the passes but this is due to our location near to 2 attractions. We are hoping to do legoland around easter time.

I have just used this deal to renew my passes (will activate them in april). Was unsure whether to have them for another year but think this may be the last year before the age difference between my eldest and youngest causes issues where they want to be in totally separate parts of the park.


Thank you very much for your detailed answer. Looking at the deals I think it seems we will be best off buying 3 passes as a family pass and then getting one pass from tesco vouchers. The deal at the moment is £50 worth of vouchers = 1 x standard pass plus free parking and 1 free ultd drink. I dont think there is much point in shelling out for 2 tickets from our vouchers becuase they are only £74pp when buying as a family.

The only thing I am finding is that I am unable to get the £74pp online. It always comes up at about £106........ Any ideas?


There's no mention of free parking with the tesco offer, only a car sticker! I'm sure you can pay to upgrade 1 pass to premium though to get the free parking

We are a family of 4 and have a load of tesco vouchers. I was thinking of buying the £50 deal on the tesco clubcard site as you get an annual parking pass and free ulimited drink, then buy 3 x pass at family rate for £222. This seems to be better than spending another £46-£50 on tesco vouchers and then 2 passes for £200...

Can anyone tell me if there is likely to be any better deals coming up or whether this makes sense. My youngest son is 5 and unlikely to be able to go on a lot of the rides.

A great deal for merlin tickets,£93 each for the three of us cheaper than ebay and tesco club vouchers.
If you have a group of five then its around £93 each or 135 for the premium pass!
