£25 family day return to the Isle of Wight by hovercraft if you book by 30th July. Valid for Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 7th - 23rd August. Great sandy beach and plenty of attractions at Ryde meaning you don't need a car on the other side. Alternatively the Isle of Wight train goes from Ryde all the way through to Shanklin on the south of the island for more amazing sandy beaches and lovely walks.
Thanks for all the places to avoid chavs
A parking secret for you. If anyone is driving into London on a weekend, there is free parking in Belgrave Square after 1.30PM on Saturdays and all day Sunday. There are loads of spaces too and Belgrave Square is just South of Hyde Park Corner so near Tubes and within reasonable walking distance of loads of things eg Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, Harrods etc.

Got something very similar to this a 3 car experience as a Christmas present. This was for 3 Sisters Wigan. I've since found out it cost £95 and then when I tried to book in April they had gone bust. Even more annoying was the fact that my sister paid by credit card but it's just £5 under the £100 needed for section 75 protection. Grrrrrrrr
Was this bought direct through the track? My experience was through buyagift and when the company went bust they reactivated my voucher and then gave me a refund when I didn't want to book an experience 100 miles away.

Yeah my sister went direct to Three sisters race course to save a few quid (I just wish it was £5 more expensive then I could have claimed!). This was on the bottom of their email:

I've done this in the past, and I won't recommend anyone. They put a smart ass next to your seat, constantly talking slow down, gear, brake .. they won't let you drive it or by any means enjoy it. I hated the experience and because of the smart ass, I don't even remember the cars. The only thing worth extra was I had a passenger seat drive on a Ariel Atom with a semi-pro driver, which was great.
So you got miffed about someone telling you how to drive properly?

Yeah, right funny guy, go ahead and book it then.

So, you're not going to answer the question then?
Here's a tip: don't pontificate from a position of ignorance.
People will call **** on you and when they do, hurling insults at them only makes you look worse.
Oh the irony, remind me, who's the one throwing the insults flower? There was nothing in my post to illicit your (pretty pathetic) response, perhaps you just need to learn to read? :)
How many of these days have you been on?

I've been on 6 of these days, driving somewhere between 11 and 21 different cars. All of them had a "kill switch". I've also driven a Lamborghini Veneno Roadster which was a courtesy car whilst my McLaren P1 LM was in for a service, it was quite slow.

To be honest, I have asked myself why I pay to drive cars inferior to my own, but a very knowledgeable (if not a little bit hypocritical) young lad on a well known money site has said that I talk out of my ass so perhaps I'm just a fantasist?

Does that answer your question? Can we move on now? :)

Nope.
1 entry is £38, each voucher permits a second entry for free, per paying customer.
For 6 to enter, you'd need 3 separate printed vouchers and it would cost a total of £114.

Do you need a passport for these day trips?
No, no passport needed for a UK to Jersey or Guernsey trip.

Isn't it irrelevant what I might be 'blowing' if I couldn't handle the 3 hour trip!
I was being mildly sarcastic of course, but if you suffer from sea sickness, why go on a 'pleasure cruise', apart from because it's cheap?
If I had a peanut allergy, I wouldn't eat a big bag of them just because they were 50p on here...


I can sympathise tho, I'd love to go to Jersey but over 3 hours and I'd be sick as a dog and flight prices were ridiculous when I last looked.
I suppose the solution is valium..

Only that I suffer from sea sickness and the above ferry probably wouldn't give as smooth a ride as that advertised . . .

If you suffer from sea sickness I'd assume you'll be blowing chunks. The only irrelevant bit is by and large it all looks the same on the way out.

i would definitely recommend both these parks. Our kids still love them. Even our 18 year old still loves to join us!

The gorillas they have and the rehabitating programme they have in place is fantastic. I can sit and watch them for hours!

If you have children with Blue Peter badges, they get in free with a full paying adult. We've just used for Port Lympne and found it good value. You can also use Tesco days out vouchers too (not with Blue Peter though)

Our local park is a BIG BIG hit with our children so thanks for pointing that out and 6 bottles of Buck's Fizz for £18 is mind blowing so it's a BIG thanks from me!!!
Will will probably spend half term on the local park with the kids and swig Buck's Fizz from lucozade bottles. Nice one.
Our local park is taken over by off road bikers. May need to take out my shotgun from storage and clear the area so kids can play again...

This deal is misleading.

The £21.95 tickets on the Gullivers Website relate to a special event over May Half term that includes food, however I contacted Little Bird who confirmed that this deal is for general admission only not the special event tickets.

General Admission tickets on the Gullivers Website (Warrington) are only £16.95 each therefore only a £1.95 saving per person.

This isn't where Peter Kay filmed Car Shake.
Knowsley park is where he filmed it

It was actually filmed at Blair Drummond Safari Park in Scotland.
PH21 1NL :( heat for those close to it x
Heat - Thanks OP! Heading to Inverness at the end of May so this works out great
Great find thanks, heading there in June so this is perfect. Went a couple of years back and can only say good things about it. Sure it's not a huge park with all the animals you'd see in a large city zoo but the enclosures they do have are nice and large. Decent variety of animals - deer, monkeys, polar bear and cats. Would fully recommend a visit, if you are lucky you can get in early and go on a free guided tour of the park with a ranger.
I'm really gutted they've stopped allowing dogs in the park. We go to this area camping or to a house and obviously we cant leave our dog in a tent/holiday accommodation. We would walk him before we went then let him out in the dog area at the park. We love driving round the safari area,he doesn't bark. Then when we walked around periodically went back to the car to check on him and let him out.
I understand people will leave their dogs for hours in cars and this is what they're trying to avoid. But again punish the masses.
I think they'll lose a lot of visitors as a lot of holiday accommodation you cant leave your dog (s) while you're out. Since its so touristy I thought I should point this issue out as I think people will buy this deal and be disappointed when they arrive with their dog in the boot of the car!

You're right to some extent but in my opinion, it isn't that bad. Like I said on another thread, if you get there early, you can go on more than 10 rides. Whenever we go, we do that, go back to the car for lunch ( to avoid the wasps), go to the 4D movie theatre and sometimes the mini theatre and pirate show by the bay. Never have I or will I buy the Qbot - pure extortion. My kids are under 10 and only like gentle rides so Alton towers is no good to us. I did think about Thorpe park for a change this year but they have asked to go to Legoland again. It might also have something to do with them loving Lego. Just waiting for the annual pass sale now as I've already booked our hotel stay.

Really? We said we wouldn't go in there if we were given free access. I can't imagine it has got any better. Shocking place 3 years ago.
Out of curiosity, what was so bad?
It looked very messy, in need of decoration, rides very outdated, queues were terrible for what the rides were. Had a Merlin Season pass so it wasn't the cost of entry that bothered me but we never went again and i've seen the same feelings echoes many times.

The point is and remains, they are not "special children", ALL children are special, its just that some have special needs, there is a huge difference!!
And on that note, I had not noticed the part of 'special needs' tbh, I was about to book it when I just realized when I had to create a new account. It seems the Zoo page doesn't even ask for any kind of requirement to confirm a child with special needs is going?
Is this deal then only for childs with special needs or is their day but the zoo is welcoming other children with the same deal?
Thinking the same
it says "We have a designated special welcome and entrance for Special Children's Day ticket holders". "Our staff and volunteers will be ready to greet you at the dedicated Special Children's Day entrance."

Therefore, it would be a little embarrassing if the volunteers greet you at the dedicated entrance and you don't have a child with special needs.

For an average family with 2 kids (mine for example) it costs the best part of NINETY quid to visit London Zoo. I don't expect anything to be free in this life, and wish to support the Zoological Society, but its a little steep for most families.
I remember going several times as a kid and it can't have cost my parents anywhere near this amount.
Remember to ask to pay without the "voluntary donation".

Aren't ALL children special? I certainly think that mine are!!! Stupid over-PC nonsense, LET ME STRESS: I have no problem with the principle, its great, but lets call it what it is, is a "Day for children with special needs", what's wrong in just saying that? :)
What's wrong with "special children's day"? Your over sensitivity at people of over sensitivity is a little ironic don't you think?
You have seen that this thread is over a year old right?!? Where do you get that I'm being oversensitive? The point is and remains, they are not "special children", ALL children are special, its just that some have special needs, there is a huge difference!! Why not call these children "fluffy pink elephants" as that's equally as inaccurate?!?! I personally find the term "special children" a bit derogatory, as lets face it, you're singling them out and MAKING an issue of their differences, which is surely all it is, is it not?!
To be honest, you sound like one of the PC type I referred to and we'll never agree so lets just leave it there shall we flower before it all kicks off! ;)
Special - better, greater, or otherwise different from what is usual.
Lol, Pc type, good one. I'm a teacher, I've worked with dozens of special needs kids - I know more about them than you'll ever understand. My point was, and still is, that the only person getting upset here is you. You're literally complaining about something that is A) by dictionary definition accurate and correct, and B) none of your concern or business. Where do I think you're over sensitive? Well you've labelled this harmless act "derogatory" for a start X)
As you seem quite uneducated on the matter, I'll very briefly fill you in. Many special needs children life their lives not knowing of their labels. They know that they're different of course, but many don't receive diagnosis until they're at least 10 years old - and that's only if parents are helpful and understanding of what is best for their kids (many aren't). Using a term like "special children" allows these kids who already have daily struggles adapting to the real world to feel good about themselves without having it thrown in their face that they are different. It's a tiny gesture to allow these children to avoid feeling further isolated and different (it plays on their lack of understanding in a nice way)
If you're truly bitter and synical enough to believe that children who already struggle daily to fit in and adapt at school - children who are often bullied or targeted for their needs - don't deserve a small token gesture to make them feel better than your kids, then fine. There is nothing I can say or do to change your narrow minded perspective on the world and the conversation will end here. But have a real hard think about it before you reply: Does referring to special needs kids as "special children" really harm your children even 1/10000th of the amount that having a special need would?
Utter claptrap and typical of someone who works in one of the most PC sectors as its what you lot get drummed in to you daily. I suppose you also agree with taking unruly toe rags to Alton Towers because they haven't punched a teacher that week? :)
The only one getting stressed is you flower, you're the one that replied a year old thread :p I'm just having a discussion. However, with your narrow view on life and lack of reason, I'm just glad you don't teach my kids ;)
I find it laughable that you say that "using a term like "special children" allows these kids who already have daily struggles adapting to the real world to feel good about themselves without having it thrown in their face that they are different"..... and you do this by making them feel different to other kids?!?! :)
Does it harm my kids? Have I ever said it does? This happens a lot, but with you, I find it extremely disappointing. As a teacher, surely you should be able to read what people say as opposed to reading what you THINK they say? ;)
"Blah blah blah back in my day....blah blah blah immigrants stole my shoes.....blah blah blah bring back the death penalty....blah blah blah.
You're right, I did reply to a year old thread...A year old thread that had been replied to mere hours before and was on the front page lol. As for "flower", I'm a male you tit.
I look forward to your points on bringing back corporal punishment...the slipper perhaps? Im glossing over all your comments as I spend my week imparting knowledge and frankly have better things than schooling you at the weekend.
P.s. Immigrants stole my phone box!

Do you really think it's acceptable to start name calling? You're not in the playground now, besides, who's mentioned anything about immigration etc? You're clearly harbouring a lot of anger, hate and racism, it's worrying that someone with your disgusting attributes is actually teaching our kids? oO

Chill out flower, you're on one of your many holidays either this week or next, you should be happy? X)
