Merlin Annual Pass £75.00 from London Eye / Aquarium

Found this option hidden on the London Aquarium website. Regular price is £150 per person. Online price is £120 - 20% off at all the other websites .g. Thorpe Park, Alton Towers, Legoland, Merlin Annual Pass.com

HOWEVER, click through the London Aquarium website. You'll be put through to Maximweb. Click on a date to pick up, then scroll to the bottom for "Merlin Annual Pass Individual - Half Price! @ £75"

The website seems to fail with Firefox but worked with Chrome and IE for me. Picked up my passes today (the missus & me) - but you have to pick it up from the London Eye ticket office next door.

Also lets you skip the queues - which is awesome!

It lasts a whole year. Visit London Eye, Aquarium, Madame Toussards, Warwick Castle etc when the theme parks are closed. No matter when you buy it you will only ever get one season at the theme parks.:whistling:

Makes sense!:whistling:

We did this just over a year ago when it was half price at the Yarmouth seal sactuary (or somewhere similar). Was lucky enough to get them to sell it over the phone but they soon stopped that. This is a cracking deal if you can get into London.
#7
I'd say its better to buy mid season.
You'll have the end half of one season at the theme parks and the beginning of the next years...

To buy or not to buy :oops:

This is an amazing deal. I have got mine with Clubcard points the last two years but it is well worth the money. A few trips to Legoland and it pays for itself!
#15
good offer, bought it on 50% if taken for group of 4 @ Legoland last summer....... Hope this will stay till summer again

Definately buy!! We have had some lovely days out and turned some into weekend breaks (using hotel deals found here :thumbsup:) With an annual pass, if the park is packed, you don't feel you have to queue to do everything in one day as you can always come back another day :-D

Are you sure this isnt an annual pass for the London Aquarium? (I know there are different types of Merlin Passes, that can cover all or individual parks.

I bought Merlin Annuals last March. I wont be buying again. Just didnt get used, so for me a bit of a waste of money.


Yes a Merlin pass is the only one for all parks. If you look at the list of tickets on offer there is an annual pass just for the aquarium shown.
#18
Can anyone clarify whether an Merlin Pass is required for a child under 4? According to AltonTowers.com they allow under 4's in free, but Legoland sell child tickets for ages 3-12 years... I'd be very grateful if someone could clarify this for me please...:?
#19
Great deal
#20
Great deal, looks like they do this every year at this time according to my Mrs ; she has been looking out for this deal for ages. Normal discounted family pass is reasonable value usually when you have 2 kids under 12; for anyone else including us with one child over 12, this is fab. Cheers
#21
Well spotted heat added
#22
Works for me, heat and rep.
#23
PLEASE BEWARE.....
They have changed the terms and conditions so that during peak times and all of aug you cannot get entry to the theme parks until after 5pm (or something like that).
It puts alot of people off because of not being able to use in the 6 weeks hols.

With regard to ages I rung them as I have 3 children ages 5 4 and 7 months.. They said I would need a family pass for 4 .... but i'm not sure what happens when my son reaches 1.

Are you sure about that? I just checked the Merlin website and this is all it said.

Entry is subject to attraction operating calendars. Standard pass exclusions include: No entry during the month of August at London Eye, Madame Tussauds London, London Dungeon and SEA LIFE London Aquarium. No entry during Fright Nights at THORPE PARK. No entry on 14th February at the London Eye. No entry on 30th and 31st October at the London Eye and The London Dungeon.
#25
FANTASTIC DEAL - THIS IS WHAT IVE PAID FOR A RENEWAL OF THE FAMILY PASSES WE HAVE. GET INTO LONDON AQUARIUM, LONDON EYE, CHESSINGTON, THORPE PARK AND LONDON TUSSAUDS/DUNGEONS - WELL WORTH £75 FOR A WHOLE YEAR. :thumbsup:
#26
Thats what it said in the summer when I was going to purchase so I didn't.
Hope they have changed the terms then.
#27
so its not really a 12 month pass - its 11 months if they are excluding august
#28
I have never EVER seen them discounted to this amount, it would be AMAZING if this is confirmed
#29
From the T+C's :whistling: Merlin Annual Passes can not be used during the following periods at the London Eye, Madame Tussauds London, the London Aquarium and the London Dungeon: before 3pm during the whole month of August, Valentine’s Day, from 26 to 31 December, 31 October at the London Dungeon only.

Seems a good deal but trying to work out what to do with one 14 year classed as an adult and one 10 year old a child?
#30
Guessing you have to pick this up yourself or can somebody pick it up for you?

I just had a look on the actual Merlin site, and it gives you option when buying a family ticket.
Have a look.
You can have 1 adult 3 children, but I'm not sure about 3 adults and a child...
It's cheaper ever so slightly to buy 4 individual tickets. I do not think they are age specific.

Your photo is printed on the card so you need to go in person to collect. I got ours using Tesco vouchers (£35 vouchers per person), so this £75 is a better deal.

well worth the money, you can go to a park for the first couple of hours while it is still quiet.

A couple of weeks ago we went on the Eye (just get straight in to the Q), then to the aquarium for a couple of hours, then back on the eye to see London lights in the dark.

bargin!!!

many thanks, bought for me and girlfriend :)
going to email brother also for him & family will be good for them, as they live close :)
#35
Great if you live in London , can make better use of pass with more regular visits, not as good if you are near central Birmingham, smaller version of sea life centre to use.
#36
almost worth looking at property around chessington to make this worthwhile ;)

The deal for the Merlin Pass is a much better deal.

I bought one of these annual passes a few years ago, when the price was about £80 for a year - bought mine mid season, so got the end of one season, and the start of the next for the theme parks.

Ticket prices for the theme parks are really dodgy - book ahead and pay online through a 3rd party ticket selling site and you can buy your tickets for half price anyway (think it was £16 or £18 each for adults), and yet it was over £30 each for adults on the gate.

A 2 for 1 ticket deal on the day at the gate it fine if you just want to go once to one attraction, but with the number of times you can make use of an annual pass like this, it seems a great idea to snap it up while it is available.

This IMO is how much the pass should cost anyway.

I've been a pass holder for 5 years now and after numerous restrictions being put on pass holders I am considering not to renew this season.
We used to have lots of perks including exclusive early entrance to Alton Towers and one nail in the coffin was being told we would have to pay to reserve a place at Thorpe Parks fight nights events even if we had a pass. We were also not allowed into Alton Towers over christmas when they had a patial park opening, only hotel guests.
They offer you 20% off food purchases but you will need to fill out your details when purchasing, another backwoods step introduced at the parks that causes more hassle than it's worth sometimes.
There are loads of benefits of course including free parking at Alton Towers and Thorpe park (they are planning to introduce paid parking there also) 20% off goods as mentioned, 20% of standard rates at Alton Towers Hotel.
As mentioned before though, it's not so good if you live outside of London especially as you are restricted access at the time your most likely to be visiting the capital, thats the main reason i've chosen not to renew.

Children under 1m tall get in free due to restrictions with rides and heights at the theme parks. As under 1m they wont get as much out of a day as some one above 1m.

What they actually say is "during August your entry in London only attractions (tussauds, dungeons, london eye) is restricted til after 3pm"
which actually isnt that bad as most of the attractions are open late and you arent really going to spend a whole day there like a Theme park.
Ive had my passes for 5+years now and would recommend them!
well worth the money even if you only use them a few times...
You also get discounts in the attractions on food, drinks and gifts plus great discounts and deals at hotels.
Its been the first year that Thorpe Park has restricted pass holders during halloween BUT you can still get into the park you just had to pay £2 per pass holder for the final week of halloween, it wasnt restricted any other time during the attraction. which considering how busy it gets, its best to avoid that week anyway.
You can use the passes all year round - March-nov in the theme parks, chessingtons zoo is open all year, sealife centres and the other attractions are also open all year.
We tend to use the theme parks march-nov and then do the other attractions nov-march. when the weather is not great for being outdoors anyway.
We also get special pass holders only days and managed to get on the Saw ride without having to queue for hours...
