Found 25th May 2017
The Merlin Pass summer sale starts on the 1st of June. We bought our passes during the sale last year and will probably renew this year.

The BIG SUMMER SALE will start on the 1st June at 10am and will end at midnight 3rd July online, and at the relevant closing times on the 3rd July via the phone lines and in the attractions.

Both new and renewing Standard and Premium Merlin Annual Passes can be purchased during the BIG SUMMER SALE.

When we bought ours at Alton Towers we got the standard ticket cost knocked off each pass even though we were using Sun and Clubcard tickets so there is a further saving to there if you have tickets already.

Sale now live!
Standard individual - £179 reduced to £139
Standard family - £139 reduced to £119
Premium individual - £219 reduced to £169

Thanks for the heads up, was thinking of getting these passes for the family. Heat added.
so you got about £50 off each ticket further? thats fab
Does anyone know if Legoland will do an annual pass sale this year? Do they usually have them at the same time?
Perfect was hoping to get this didn't know about the sale. My family is two adults, three children 8, 5 and 1 year old so if I get the family £179 will this cover us all I can't see anywhere

The price Is per person
Wish Tesco would do that amazing Clubcard deal from about 5 years ago again. I think it was something like £35 in Clubcard vouchers for an annual pass...

Thanks so I buy 4 passes then and 1 year old gets in anyway over the year
Remember to go through either TopCashBack or Quidco as you can get roughtly £10 per pass back.

Better to pick up the passes rather than upload a picture as the 12 months will start from when you pick them up rather than pretty straight away when you upload a photo.

Yes that's correct, funny enough your childrens ages are exactly the same as mine and we have 4 passes.

Good tips thank you just wanted to make sure I am doing everything properly because it is a lot of money but the saving will be massive.
been renewing these for over a decade, this was our final year, the parks are in dire states right now, perks dialed right back, customer satisfaction and the "magic" you're meant to feel in these listed attractions are few and far between now.

Agreed. We got ours this year after a year out and I'm shocked at how poor the service is now. No longer feel like even a customer. Just a hindrance in their parks. Shrek is terrible. Sherlock Holmes at MT's is lame to the extent where the performers seem embarrassed. Air. Or whatever it's called now at AT hasn't worked for ages. When you say no magic I get exactly what you mean...
Oh doesn't sound good. We are looking at doing all this stuff and longleat others etc instead of spending loads of money all inclusive abroad for one week. If this gets us all into the park whenever we want all is good just need to check tc's to see when they exclude
Likewise, I've been getting these annual passes for the last 3 years but no more. Obviously Merlin is a business and out to make money but that seems to be all they are about these days. They charge extortionate entry prices and then try to sell you fast passes for even more money just to avoid their artificially long queue lines created in order to sell more fast passes. A lot ot the attractions are either closed or don't work as they should and they don't seem interested in investing any of their profits back into the businesses.
Are the Summer sales better than the Winter ones? As it's an annual thing I'm guessing if you get it during a sale then you can renew during the next sale 12 months later, so which part of the year is best for getting your first one?

This includes Legoland, no? Or are you solely wanting that?

Don't forget they had to pay millions in claims..Something got to suffer
To be honest, I wouldn't let me kids go to these places now after recent events. Not worth the risk IMHO.

What do you want to know? Premium passes will be around £129 and have no restrictions on dates but standard passes at around £109 have restriction in London for August and bank holidays. (Family prices per person quotes)

​Exactly that Premium is the way to go then. I just want to say let's go to Lego land next weekend and off we go not worry about checking. It does say you can bring friends along is there anything hidden or dodgy about that my wifes mum has kids similar age to ours so would be ideal to use our 4 passes to get them in. just need a good deal on Longleat now
I got excited, the OP reads like it's £129 for a family pass, but that's per person... Pffffft lol

Does anyone know if this can be stacked with a corporate code?

Does anyone know if this can be stacked with a corporate code?



No the corporate codes only discount from the full price although during sales they normally increase the discount slightly to keep that route slightly cheaper. As an example in the last sale standard passes were £109, with Corporate Discount they were £97 (£139 - 30%) close to the family pass price.

It does say Passholders are able to renew their passes at any time throughout their Annual Pass period and so it is possible to renew your passes to benefit from the sale prices.
Can anyone tell me, if I buy the pass while I'm in legoland i know they'll take off the entry price of that but will I get the sale price of the merlin passes or the standard price doing it that way? Or is the sale price only if I buy them online? thanks

They should take the entry price off the sale price.

we always renew in the sales and pick sea life as a pick up point.

we normally wait a few months before picking up the passes. you have 6 months from the date of purchase to pick up the passes and the 12 months starry from when you pick them up.​

Sorry I've only just seen this....with premium passes, each pass gets 3x share the fun vouchers. You can bring a non pass holder for £15 either 3 times per pass or you can use them all at once and bring up to 3 at any one time. Once they have been used , you can use friends and family perks via the merlin web site and get around 50% off
