Thanks will do that now
Might be worth updating the title to say half term only. Can’t get these prices after June 3rd

daysoutguide have 2 for 1
Cadburys (119g bags of buttons) chocolate have a free ticket If you buy one you get one free. Also Kelloggs cereal always have a free entry if you buy another ticket. (the offer that is on mine says buy an adult or child and get a free adult.
Bit of a long shot but anyone know any alternative to a travel card to get 2 for 1 at London Zoo?
Paid 30 for the dungeon on the day was great didn't have enough time for other attractions
I thought £55 was regular discounted price for 5 attractions... (shock) , looks like its a deal :p
The information should be on the BlueLightCard website after you login to your account and search for Drayton Manor. :)
I have one of these, how do you get free and/or discounted entry?
Not cheap at all in my opinion
Not forgetting BlueLightCard holders can usually get in for free, and their guests for a heavily discounted price. ;)
Wow - £7 meal!! no deal
Why would anyone spend 14 days at a themepark?
Save yourself £30 the park is rubbish compared to the UK. We went in October and complained how rubbish it was and they refunded us our tickets!
I think you have to look at this as being a one visit ticket, the 14 day pass is a bit of a red herring/marketing con as you are not going to visit more than once, 2 topps on a 14 day holiday. However for the price quoted I’m pretty sure this is a lot less than a single day on the door price so good deal OP
33p cheaper at https://www.orlandoattractions.com/tickets/legoland-14-day-ticket
It's a very cheap deal... We went there last Easter and thought it was pretty crap. We paid a lot for a one day ticket for 5 of us. Drove all the way down there and were only there half a day. Windsor is much better despite the English climate. My son was 8 at the time and is a huge Lego fan and even he was disappointed. Newest rides were closed and like others have said its aimed at younger kids I would say under 5's
if i wanted to go and do 2 parks over 2 days, is it cheaper to buy 1park/1day for my fist day and the same again and just go to the other park the next day????
Hello who was this with please.
January is usually the quietest time to go, except for weekends but it can be very cold and wet. I have just got back from there last night and recommend a hotel called Hipark. I would say 4 days would be enough to see everything and I would take as many snacks with you as you can carry because food and drinks are expensive
For a general idea of how busy the parks are during the year this link is a pretty good Indicator Clicky. It is in French but the key is in order. We have just returned from a 2 day visit in the Black ‘avoid’ days, stupidly busy on 27th but still magical. We are going to return at a quieter time this year. The app is great and gives you real time queuing times for all the rides while in the park.
1. Not nearly as busy as school holidays. 2. You could rush round everything in a day, but we would recommend a minimum of 2 days. 3. New York is very close, as is the Newport Bay(really nice hotel with a swimming pool), only a 5minute walk to the eateries, and 10minute to the parks. As an aside the Star Wars night show is superb!
Just Thomas Land for Magical Christmas, the Carousel, Accelerator & Jolly Buccaneer too.
Can't see any availability on tickets to see santa it says unavailable call this number. Would love to take my kids but is there much point in going if they can't see santa
So are the big rides open?
It's the same getting out of any other place with thousands of cars, you won't ever go anywhere if you feel like that. Besides, the car parks are changing soon and the traffic situation will be very much improved for next year so give it another go.
Bargain. Heat added
Isn't it cheaper with picniq tickets as they dont charge a fee for payment method?
How much were the sale prices for the Eurostar?
I think the difference between these two types of ticket is, with a 2 day/2 park ticket, you can go around both parks in both days whereas the other ticket only gives you admissions to either park in a single day. Having read someone saying 3 days is ideal for both parks, i'm undecided now. (annoyed)
Just back from 2 days in Disney last week. I got a 1-Day/1-Park ticket for our first day knowing full well it would take a full day to get around Disneyland Park. For second day, I bought a 1-Day/2-Park ticket assuming we would wrap up in the Walt Disney Studios around 3/4pm, in fact we were there right until 6pm and just went into Disneyland Park after to make value of the ticket. If there's anything to take from my experience, 3 days in the parks is ideal but if you can only do two days, dedicating one day to each park should allow you to see around 90% of what's on offer. That said, I was there last Monday and Tuesday and it was quite busy but nothing compared to what it would be like this week. You should be able to see everything in two days but their fast past system is a joke and leads to a lot of queuing, a big wake up call for those used to how sophisticated the Orlando FP system is.
This has expired. The offer is now £27 per person to include food (which you need to choose in advance) OR £27 Adults / £22 kids to include VertiGO, no package for all.
Do they make a fuss if you can't print out your tickets we are booked for tomorrow and havent been able to print the email anywhere
This is a brilliant offer, have brought and printed e ticket instantly. Cheaper than the sites general admission ticket plus you get a meal and entry to Vertigo (albeit costs £2 on the day). Cheers OP (y)
No problem using tickets at Drayton Manor, all the water rides are closed though if that's what your going for
We went to Drayton Manor a few weeks ago. Most of the best rides are shut, we had 3 experiences of waiting in hour long queues only to be told the rides had a 'technical fault'. It was woefully understaffed. Wouldn't go back there if you paid me.
DOUBT IT, the BUY ONE GET ONE FREE offers are usually only with full price tickets.
Can you use these with free entrance tickets ie, Buy one get one in free?
For those who are wondering Drayton Manor have confirmed that the site is legit - "365 tickets are one of our 3rd party tickets suppliers, you are able to purchase these tickets to visit Drayton Manor Park. DMP"
Is this site trustworthy? as it has been marked as an un-secure site by my Norton? Thanks.
Thomasland is fantastic. I think this is the best theme park in the UK for smaller children. We went for the first time last October and been back several times since. From Suffolk.
We are also visiting Disneyland and have booked the same hotel through Trivago :)
That's a great deal, the French are paying more than this on their websites
Would also recommend that hotel, have just returned from our 2nd stay there.
Just checked what we paid for the Dream tickets, it was £129 for adults from Supertrips using a discount code that they had on Facebook, and £99 for Children's tickets from DTS. This ticket gets you 20% off merchandise and 10% off food. We needed this ticket as the cheaper Fantasy pass had some black out dates in the October half term when we went.
Agree, we got annual passes for similar money in Sept. You get free parking which is now €20 per day as well as the early (2 extra hours) entry into the park and discount on meals and the shops. The Fantasy pass doesn't do weekends though, so we got the slightly more expensive (at the time) Dream pass. There are a few UK based sellers like Supertrips and Discount Ticket Store.

I'm trying too and so far thinking that the hotels that come with park passes are going to be best option?
All tickets come with fastpass
Thanks for this. Am trying to find the cheapest way of getting tickets. Do most tickets come with the Fast pass and what is the party pass? Thanks for the help - first trip to Disneyland and am clueless. Found some cheap hotel options. Thanks
Nice one thanks for the tip
£95.39 for an adult ticket and £86 child tickets. Save some more pounds
Was at PortAventura 2 years ago and it was brilliant! Don't have much to compare it too but it was very clean, well presented and had some brilliant rides including Shambala and Furious Baco. I was considering Legoland windsor for my daughter (5yo) this summer. Is there a better park in the UK with regards to catering for the younger/smaller children?
Can't afford Disney in USA but my wife and I have been to Disney in Paris. We actually did that one without any kids at all so I have no idea if the staff there interact with kids or not? We have been to Gullivers world in Warrington, every year for the last three years, at Christmas time. What a good day out, at a very reasonable cost! You get a panto whilst eating chips and other bits. You also get a trip on the train to see Santa at his grotto, which again, is very good indeed. The staff are great with my grandchildren, although we have noticed that the children's gifts have gradually got a bit worse every year. But, the day out itself is amazing.
Couldn't agree more, in the UK there are some lovely parks like Gullivers Kingdom in Matlock Bath (which is also a beautiful location) that do just that. Sadly, a lot of the bigger parks forget about the little ones in favour of scaring the life out of the 11 years and above age group. On the few occasions we visited Portaventura, our kids may have been too young, and therefore we may have left with a negative opinion. So you're absolutely right. It's horses for courses. Now that our children are both teenagers they obviously want the scary stuff and universal studios and Thorpe Park are their current favs, however for me nothing beats Disney, but I guess that's more for the memories of the magic than anything else. :)
Thanks for that. You know something? As well as having decent rides, for all age ranges ie 4 to 57 :) its the attitude of the staff that make or break a good day out for me. If the staff are prepared to engage with my grandchildren, even with daft stuff like face painting or balloon modelling, or even just chatting to them whilst in a queue for a ride, then that makes all the difference.
You will be better off at Europa-park with kids that young as I seem to remember Heide being more on the extreme side, but probably best to check both park maps ahead of a visit to assure value.:)
Waste of money
Massively, massively overpriced admission for a very over-regarded place. We've been twice, both times we had free tickets and we only went the second time 'cos we were convinced we'd only been bored the first time 'cos we'd missed the good stuff...we hadn't :|
Excellent price but I visited the Eden project earlier this year and I have never been so underwhelmed with a place for years. We walked around with the expectation of an absorbing and informative family day out.But we would have had a more enjoyable day going to our local dobbies staring at the tropical fish and racing the coffin Dodgers to the best cakes in the restaurant. However if you want to be nonplussed and bored for a day you may as well do it as cheaply as possible.
season pass looks like a stonking deal especially if buying at the start of the season
I know it might smart a little but why don't you just go for it and buy season passes? They are £50 for anyone aged over 4 basically and £25 for age 2-3 a couple of visits and you've got your money's worth. They also entitle you to 20% off at The Grill restaurant 5% off retail and 10% off catering.
Isn't it cheaper to buy from the Drayton manor website?
This would have been ideal but i needed tickets for end of June/beginning of July
Heat given. Cheers.
I just take em out of school, oh they all have matching shell suits n flat peaks too..
I think they are trying to point out that it isn't a 'half term' holiday as they come 'half' way through the term. The Easter holidays is an end of term holiday as is Christmas and the summer holidays.
Remember that always is another one:)) every 6-7 weeks. The next one will just around Easter depends on region. In Swindon is 6-21 April.
Sounds like it will be even busier now in the Easter Holidays
You can spread it over more days but one very busy day would do, I guess it depends on who you'd be going with and if all of the attractions/rides appeal to you.
Any cheap hotels nearby for this and is this worth 2 days or 1 day will do?

how do you get the zoo tickets on this page?
my mistake, I though that 0,9 m are months
This is still working, should be un-expired
Worked for me, thanks :)
Use code 5%OFF during checkout and you'll save a further 5% Enter during checkout.
Thought this place was absolutely terrible. Didn't help that 12 school coaches were there when I went, I thought I was going when everyone was at work. Instead, it felt like I was on the disney channel or something with little kiddies singing to the radio.
Noticed this late last night and took the five year old today as the weather was perfect. The lad loved it, so thank you OP. No queues on entrance, walked straight in at ten o'clock. Queues for rides were acceptable for the summer holidays. Including booking fees (50p from 365, £1.50 from drayton manor website) it came to £33.50 as opposed to £36.50 direct.
