We went to Chessington for the weekend & had enough Tesco vouchers to get one Merlin pass for £37.50 . When we got there I was going to get an annual pass for myself & buy 2 disabled child tickets but the guy said that the best way for me to use my voucher was to get a disabled child & free carers pass
So we got 2 annual passes for £37.50 in Tesco vouchers :) Now i just need to save up enough vouchers to get my other son one lol

Thought this might be useful information for anyone with a disability or carers :)

i'm assuming that it works for disabled adults too (not that i'm saying you are) just thought it may be of use to some :thumbsup:
they don't tell you about it on their website so if the guy on the passes desk hadn't have told me i wouldn't have had a clue

It's always been like that. I got mine for £27.50 worth of vouchers last year...! Not sure why they put the price up but don't really care as this year the renewal cost is only £300 for a family of four.

Given the Devere hotel deals I've managed to bag over the last year our annual passes have taken a battering and have been a COMPLETE BARGAIN..! Having the pass makes you put the effort in to get the best value you can out of it, the only place we haven't managed to get to yet is Warrick castle but I have promised the kids we'll get there before the summer..

The annual passes also allowed us to jump the ques at all the London venues this week which was a godsend when you have a four year old in tow....

Merlin Passes are a must have. Great thread.

it's not £37.50. It's£150 worth of deals tokens (which are worth a lot more than £37.50). VOting cold for being misleading.

it is £37.50 worth .... read the tesco site ..... vouchers are worth 4 x the value in deals e.g.

if you have a £10 voucher, its worth £40 when transferred to tesco deals

£37.50 x 4 = £150 :whistling:

The Merlin Annual Pass is incredible value for money. Any deal which makes it cheaper has got to be better and therefore good.

As well as the queue-jumping imiskeen mentioned you also get the shop discount. 10% in the Legoland shop and 20% on food and drink in most of the theme parks. Not to be sniffed at.

Exactly, they are worth £150.

Well yeah it's not £37.50 of cash, it's £37.50 of my very limited supply of tesco clubcard vouchers (I don't have many left right now) which I have a large choice of options to use where they are worth double or quadruple the value. £37.50 cash for an annual pass is great value, but I could spend that many tesco vouchers on £150 of restaurant food, £75 of wine, £75 of phone credit...

Oh yes you were! :w00t::w00t:

Hot from me.... I used my Merlin passes last Saturday for a 2h 45m visit to Thorpe Park. I certainly wouldn't have done that at park entrance prices!

you travelled all that way for a few hours :shock: are you mad? :lol:
we're off to legoland in a few weeks for my son's birthday & have just received our second merlin pass voucher from tesco so 2 adults & 2 kids covered with 2 tesco merlin vouchers :-D

You may appreciate following info, please be aware of the restrictions

exclusions: 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 (£5 entry fee applies). No entry on 14th February at the London Eye. No entry on 31st October at the London Eye and The London Dungeon.

Because I thought these restrictions were OTT I complained to Merlin and now :thumbsup: they have two cards
A standard Merlin pass and A Premium Merlin pass which has no restrictions but they have set the price at £200 :whistling: for the premium.

I recently wrote to the London Eye accessibility email address to enquire about using my clubcard vouchers to get Merlin passes for the family, including one carers pass as our son receives DLA.. Everywhere else we go we get a carers ticket, cinema, National Trust, other attractions etc... I also enquired on how we could reserve a place in the queue (flight I think they call it)..
The reply was rather dissapointing.. Not only were carers passes not allowed with Tesco vouchers (as they are already discounted), but Merlin passes do not entitle you to book a flight.. This exludes us from even going to the London Eye as my son certainly would not be able to queue for more than 10 minutes..

Anyone know if this information is correct and advise how we might be able to arrange a timed visit to the London Eye?

thanks.. P
