Merlin logo1-yr Merlin pass for theme parks £119Price rises to £169 in Feb. Unlimited entry to Alton Towers etc

4 days left

Until 11.59pm on Mon 15 Feb, you can get an annual 'standard' Merlin pass at the discounted price of £119 per person. After that, it will rise to the normal 2016 price of £169 per person. The pass gets you unlimited visits to 32 attractions including Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Legoland, Madame Tussauds, London Dungeon, London Eye and the Blackpool Tower. 

Given you could also go to many attractions using a 2for1 voucher (see our Theme Parks guide), you need to make about six theme park visits during the year to make it worth buying an annual pass. Alton Towers for two people costs £50ish with 2for1 tickets. However, if theme parks aren't your thing, you'd need to visit cheaper attractions such as Sea Life Centres (tickets £20-£25ish) more regularly to make it work out cheaper than buying tickets separately. See 'more info' below as a few exclusions apply, so check before buying.

If you’re buying passes for between three and five people (max three over-12s), you can get them at the reduced 'family' rate of £99, going up to £129 on Mon 15 Feb. You don't technically need to be family, or even visit together, so adults can team up to get the cheaper rate.

How do I get one?

Buy online at Merlin or call 0844 4774 444 (13p/min from landlines, so better to buy online if you can). Passes can either be posted out or collected from the box office at one of the attractions within six months of purchase. They’ll be valid for exactly one year from the date of issue.

Alternatively, if you've got Tesco points, you can buy an annual pass for £50 in Clubcard Boost vouchers. See our Tesco Clubcard Boost page for more info.

More info

To get the group discount select the 'family' rate, which is for groups of three to five purchasing together. A maximum of three adults (which Merlin defines as anyone aged 12+) can get passes at the discounted rate. Children aged 3+ (or measuring above 90cm tall) will need their own Merlin annual pass to gain entry. There's no difference in price for children's and adults' annual passes.

The following restrictions apply to the 'standard' Merlin annual pass, but not to the 'premium' pass, which currently costs £149 (rising to £209):

  • Madame Tussauds London, London Eye, Sea Life London aquarium, DreamWorks Tours Shrek’s Adventure London and London Dungeon: no entry during the whole of August
  • Madame Tussauds London, London Eye, Sea Life London aquarium, DreamWorks Tours Shrek’s Adventure London and London Dungeon: no entry on UK bank holidays 1 Jan, 25 Mar, 2 May, 30 May, 29 Aug, 26 Dec, 27 Dec
  • London Eye: no entry 14 Feb
  • London Dungeon: no entry 28-29 Oct
  • Warwick Castle: secondary attractions including the castle dungeon will be subject to additional charges
  • Thorpe Park: secondary attractions including Fright Nights will be subject to additional charges
  • Parking not included

Kids Pass logoFREE one-month Kids Pass (norm £7.50)*Gets access to 3,700 offers, eg, kids eat free & cheap cinema

49 days left

Kids Pass members get access to about 3,700 offers, including kids eat free and up to 40% off cinema tickets. You can't see specific deals before you sign up and we haven't featured it before, so we've blagged a free month trial (usually £7.50) that won't auto-enrol you afterwards - meaning you can try it for free, with no strings attached.

Simply go via this MSE Blagged Kids Pass* link by 11.59pm on Thu 31 Mar to get a free month's membership (you'll then need to download the app for Apple or Android only, see below). Let us know what you think of it in the forum, on Twitter or Facebook.

What it gets you

Offers run across England, Wales and Scotland (plus a few offers in Northern Ireland) and you only need one Kids Pass per household. Kids Pass told us there's no limit on the number of adults or children, but there may be 'certain restrictions', so you'll need to check each offer individually.

It's a closed group so we can’t share the specifics of most deals - but, we've seen a preview, and decent savings include:

  • Free child meals at 1,300 restaurants, eg, Giraffe, Loch Fyne and Handmade Burger Co (with a paying adult)
  • Up to 40% off cinema tickets, including adult and child tickets at 420 cinemas
  • Up to 50%ish off theme parks, including adult and child entry
  • 2for1 bowling at 32 MFA bowling centres

How to use Kids Pass

Once you've signed up for the free trial via the link above, you'll need to download the Kids Pass app (for Apple or Android only) and sign in using your login details. Search for offers by category, and click 'claim offer' to get any you want to use.

Every offer you claim will be stored as a document, including instructions on how to use it, in the 'my offers' tab. Redemption methods we found include showing your Kids Pass membership (via the app, under the 'membership card' tab) for kids eat free, quoting a code via telephone to book theme park tickets, and following a link to book cinema tickets online.

Extend your membership after free trial for £1 for two months

If you want to extend your membership, it's £1 for two months after your free month’s trial, then £29.99 for a year (usually £75). Important: If you don't want to be automatically enrolled for a year's membership, you'll need to cancel in the second month, before the £29.99 direct debit comes out. You can cancel by emailing membership@kidspass.co.uk or by calling 01612448225.

Alton Towers logoAlton Towers £38ish early bird tix (norm up to £50ish)Save 25% when you book online a week in advance

Ongoing

If you're going to Alton Towers then you can make significant savings by booking in advance online.

For example, an adult gate ticket (12+ years) is £50.40 if bought on the day or the day before visiting. It’s normally 10% cheaper (£45.36) when booked online two to six days in advance, and 25% less expensive (£37.80) when purchased a week or more in advance.

The same discounts apply to tickets for children (£45.60 on the gate, £34.20 bought seven days in advance), seniors and families, while larger discounts are available for groups of seven or more. Alton Towers entry is free for kids under the age of four.

It costs a standard £7.50 to upgrade a one-day ticket to a two-day one, but unless you live locally you’ll need to factor in accommodation or travel costs.

Discounted advance tickets purchased online can’t be used in conjunction with any other promotional offer.

Alternatively, if you’ve got Tesco points, you can buy a one-day Alton Towers ticket for £13 in Clubcard vouchers, or an annual Merlin attractions pass for £50 in Clubcard vouchers. See our Tesco Clubcard Boost page for more info. Also see our Theme Parks guide for other handy MoneySaving tips.

National Rail logo2for1 attractions with National RailBuy train ticket & print vch to save up to £50

Save up to £50

If you register and print a voucher from Days Out Guide then buy a National Rail ticket from a train station you can get 2for1 entry to over 150 top UK attractions, including SeaLife Centres, Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventures, Alton Towers and Legoland Windsor when you present both at the attraction. See the full theme park list or the zoo and wildlife list

You need to print a voucher for the relevant attraction (follow the link above and search for it) AND have a valid rail ticket bought from National Rail on the same day for a single or day return ticket, or within the days of travel for a return ticket. 

What if I live near the attraction/am travelling by other means?

It's worth doing this even if you are not travelling by train as a cheap single ticket can be available for a couple of quid, far cheaper than the entry ticket price (Thorpe Park is the most expensive at £50 on the gate). 

Just stop by the nearest station on your way and pick one up, then present both to get your 2for1. Crucially, your rail ticket must show that you have travelled to one of the stations nearest the attraction. So for Thorpe Park, you need to have a ticket with an end destination of Staines or Chertsey. 

The offer's ongoing, but check the voucher for each individual attraction's restrictions, as these vary. See the full T&Cs including which tickets are valid.

MSE Rhiannon says:

Electronic ticket barriers can sometimes retain your ticket (especially if it's a single), so to make sure you don't lose your proof of travel, ask a member of the station staff at a manned gate to help you through.

More info
Excludes family, advance and web tickets as well as Oyster cards, and tickets and travelcards bought from London Underground. Can't be used with other offers or promotions. Excludes Thorpe Park from Mon 26 Oct 2015 until Sun 1 Nov 2015.

  • Get an annual pass. If you’re planning multiple visits, you can buy an annual Merlin pass for 12 months' unlimited entry into a range of attractions including Alton Towers. It normally costs £169, or less per person if you're buying for a family, but look out for promotional discounts.

Kellogg's logo2for1 Alton Towers, Sea Life & more with £3ish cereal'Adults go free' voucher on selected Kellogg's cereals and snacks

Expired

Look for promotional packs of Kellogg's cereal and snacks, including Rice Krispies, Frosties, Crunchy Nut and Squares (£2ish-£3ish at most supermarkets until 30 Jun 2015), to get a "Grown-Ups Go Free" voucher for 28 UK Merlin theme parks and attractions.

Effectively this is a 2for1, as you must buy a full-price child or adult ticket to get the free adult entry. It's 'grrreat!' as you can get it now and go any time over the summer.

This could actually work out better than a 2for1 ticket if you’re an adult going with a child as generally, children’s tickets tend to be cheaper than adult tickets.

The vouchers can be exchanged for entry on the day at 28 Merlin attractions, such as Alton Towers, Legoland, Chessington, Sea Life centres and sanctuaries and Madame Tussauds, until 30 Jun 2016. Some dates are excluded at attractions, see 'more info' below.

Check online prices first

As this 2for1 is for on-the-gate tickets (usually up to £50 a ticket), it's always worth checking online before you use the voucher as these can be much cheaper than the gate and there are sometimes online offers.

We found at some attractions this voucher isn't worth it compared to normal online advance prices. For example, a standard adult off-peak Thorpe Park ticket is £49.99 on the gate and £24.99 in advance online – so using the voucher will cost the same as booking online for two adults. If you then factor in the price of the cereal, you're actually making a £3ish loss with the voucher.

However, there are other attractions where you can save a great deal. For example, an adult gate ticket at Alton Towers is £50.40 but £37.80 seven days in advance online normally, so the voucher saves £22.20ish factoring in the cereal cost.  

Also make sure there are no other deals on, as attractions have offers all year round. 

Important: Make sure the expiry on the voucher matches 30 Jun 2016. This deal runs annually so there is a chance you could get a cereal with a voucher from last year’s promotion. 

More info

Voucher and details are on packs available in most supermarkets till 30 Jun 2015 - subject to availability. Here's a list of Kellogg's products with the voucher. Ensure you take the voucher with you on the day. It can only be used against the gate price, not the discounted online price.

The age classification for an adult ticket varies between attractions so make sure you check before you go. Valid for standard entry tickets only and one voucher per person, per transaction. 

Also check the venue's individual opening dates as some are closed at certain times of the year. 

Excludes the upcoming Shrek's Adventure attraction and any secondary attractions including the Castle Dungeon at Warwick Castle. There are also some extra excluded dates listed below:

  • 9 Oct –1 Nov 2015 at The Blackpool Tower Attractions (The Blackpool Tower Eye is subject to weather conditions)
  • 23–31 Oct 2015 at Thorpe Park
  • 1-31 Aug 2015 & 29–31 Oct 2015 at The London Dungeon

2016 exclusion dates will be available from the end of 2015 on the Kellogg's website. 

Offer can't be used with: 

  • Any other offer or concession
  • Reward or loyalty scheme
  • Pre-purchased/advance tickets
  • Online or call centre ticket bookings (except the London Dungeon which you can pre-book online via this Kellogg's London Dungeon link, but you must still bring your voucher with you on the day along with your pre-booked ticket)
  • Combination tickets, 2 Day Pass, Annual Pass, Q-bot, Fastrack or priority entrance, Early Ride Time, or rail inclusive tickets
  • Event or concert tickets
  • Group bookings

Factoring in the regular 2for1 vouchers available (see our Theme Parks guide), you need to make about six theme park visits during the year to make it worth paying so much upfront.

Merlin logo2x 'free' Alton Towers tix (RRP £100) with £5ish spendCollect 10 codes from paper - bit of hassle, but BIG saving

Expired

MSE Update 11am, Wed 1 Apr: You can no longer collect codes/tokens, but we've kept this info here to help you if you're applying. You need to submit your codes/tokens by Tue 14 Apr. If you're a Sun+ member you can still apply without tokens up until this date.

Collect 10 unique 'Paper Perks' codes printed on the back of The Sun newspaper (40p weekdays, or 60p on Sat and 80p Sun – excludes Northern Ireland) every day until Tue 31 Mar to get two 'free' adult tickets to Alton Towers. 

How do you get them?

  • You need to enter all your 'Paper Perks' codes online by Tue 14 Apr, but your first code must be entered by Sun 22 Mar. You'll need to sign up to 'Sun Perks' (loyalty club) via the same link if you’re not already a member. 
  • The first code gets you five bonus codes and once you’ve reached 15 in total, click on the offer via your 'Sun Perks' account to book your tickets online. First chance to book is Mon 23 Mar. 

The Sun has 185,000 pairs in total to give away (spread across valid dates from Mar-Nov), but it's first come, first served, so you'll need apply as soon as you get to the 15th code (10 codes + five bonus codes). The Sun say the number of tickets available per date vary so you'll need to get in fast to get what you want. 

It will cost you £1.50 postage for your tickets to be sent out, so a total minimum spend of £5.50. As adult tickets at Alton Towers are £50.40 on the gate, this could save you £95.30, although you can get tickets for much cheaper than the full cost by using a voucher or booking in advance. 

Apply by post with tokens if you can't online

You can get this same deal but by collecting tokens inside the paper and applying by post. However this way you can't choose an exact date for your tickets. You'll have to choose five date bands from a list of nine on your application and you'll be given your one-day tickets on a specific date within one of these bands (subject to availability) -  see 'more info' below for the full details.

Sun+ members can get it without collecting

If you're a paid-up Sun+ website user (costs £7.99 a month), login to your account to claim your tickets online without having to collect tokens by Tue 14 Apr.

If you're on its free one-month trial, you can apply this way but you will not receive your tickets until your trial month ends and you've paid the second month. You will be charged £1.50 postage.

More info

You'll receive your tickets within 28 days - although tickets for band A dates will be sent out as a priority (see below). The offer does not appear in editions published in Northern Ireland.

Watch out, as if you send multiple applications from the same household they’ll all be void! Additional visitors must pay full price and the tokens can't be used with any other offer.

Subject to availability. If your tickets or application get lost in the post, The Sun and Alton Towers are not liable.

Postal application 

To apply this way you need to collect 10 differently-numbered tokens printed in the editorial space of the paper (not the 'Papar Perks' codes).

To get the application form you must buy the paper on Wed 18 Mar or it will be downloadable online for you to print out. The Sun couldn't tell us an exact date this application form link will go live, but it should be the same Wed  - we'll post it here once we have it. The last date you can start collecting the tokens is Sun 22 Mar.

Once your application form is complete, send it in with your tokens and a first class stamped addressed envelope (15cm x 8cm) by Tue 14 April to the address given on the form.

This way is ever so slightly cheaper compared to the online way, as your total spend is £5.24 if you get 40p papers and use two first-class stamps for £1.24. 

You must write five of these nine available date bands in order of preference on the bottom right-hand corner on the front of the envelope you send your application in (not your stamped-addressed envelope) when you apply. The dates bands are:

A

30/03/2015

18/04/2015

B

19/04/2015

15/05/2015

C

H

28/09/2015

23/10/2015

J

24/10/2015

05/11/2015

 

You’ll then be allocated a specific date on which you can use the tickets, and this is unchangeable. If all your choices are unavailable, you’ll be contacted with an alternative. 

Applications without five band choices won't be processed. If you don't put them on the envelope, it'll be processed last.

Until Sun 8 Feb, you can get annual Merlin passes for £119 per person. After that, prices will be going up to £169 per person. The pass gets you unlimited visits to attractions including Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Legoland, Madame Tussauds, London Dungeon, London Eye and the Blackpool Tower. 

Factoring in the regular 2for1 vouchers available (see our Theme Parks guide), you need to make about six theme park visits during the year to make it worth paying so much upfront. Alton Towers for two people costs £50ish with 2for1 tickets. However, if theme parks aren't your thing, you'd need to visit cheaper attractions such as Sea Life Centres (tickets £20-25ish) more regularly to make it work out cheaper than buying tickets separately.

If you’re buying passes for between three and five people (max three over-12s), you can get them at the reduced 'family' rate of £99 each in the sale (norm £129). You don't technically need to be family, or even visit together, so adults can team up to get the cheaper rate. See 'more info' for details - a few exclusions apply, so check before buying.

Alternatively, if you've got Tesco points, you can buy an annual pass for £50 in Clubcard Boost vouchers. See our Tesco Clubcard Boost page for more info.

More info

To get the group discount select the 'family' rate, which is for groups of three to five purchasing together. A maximum of three adults (which Merlin defines as anyone aged 12+) can get passes at the discounted rate. Children aged 3+ (or measuring above 90cm tall) will need their own Merlin annual pass to gain entry. There's no difference in price for children's and adults' annual passes.

The following restrictions apply to the ‘standard’ Merlin annual pass:

  • London Eye, Madame Tussauds (London), London Dungeons and Sea Life London Aquarium: No entry during the month of August, or on bank holidays.

Merlin logo2for1 theme park tix with 40p-70p papersMust buy adult ticket. Incl Alton Towers, Thorpe Park & Chessington

Expired

Buy The Sun, The Sun on Sunday or The Scottish Sun (40p weekdays, 60p Sat, 70p Sun) between Sat 11 and Fri 17 Oct and get a 2for1 voucher every day for 24 Merlin attractions, including Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Sea Life centres and The Dungeons.

Each voucher gets one adult or child free ticket when one full-price gate adult ticket is bought. It's good, as you can get it now and go any time till the end of the year or until the attraction closes for the 2014 season. Some dates are excluded, see 'more info' below.

Check online prices first

Buying tickets online in advance can be much cheaper than the gate price – sometimes just over half the price. So if there’s an odd number of people in your party, buying this way will often beat buying at the gate with the 2for1. So if you’re planning a trip, check online first.  

For example, an adult Thorpe Park ticket is £49.99 on the gate but costs from £25.99 if you book 2+ days in advance online - so the voucher only saves around £1 for two adults.

On the other hand, an adult gate ticket at Alton Towers is £49.20 but £36.90 seven days in advance online, so voucher saves around £24 for two adults. 

See the T&Cs for a full list of attractions

More info

The offer's not available in Northern Ireland. 

Ensure you take the voucher with you on the day. It can only be used against the on-the-day price, not the discounted online price. Valid for standard entry tickets only. Children must always be accompanied by an adult, check the attraction's website for more details. 

The T&Cs say one voucher per person and per transaction, so if you’re a big group, you may have to pay separately.

The voucher's valid till 31 Dec 2014, apart from the following as they close earlier: Thorpe Park, Chessington and Legoland Windsor (till Mon 3 Nov) and Alton Towers (till Fri 7 Nov). Be aware, the opening times of the individual attractions may still vary, so always check.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.

If a link has a * by it, that means it is an affiliated link and therefore it helps MoneySavingExpert stay free to use, as it is tracked to us. If you go through it, it can sometimes result in a payment or benefit to the site.

You shouldn't notice any difference and the link will never negatively impact the product. Plus the editorial line (the things we write) is NEVER impacted by these links. We aim to look at all available products. If it isn't possible to get an affiliate link for the top deal, it is still included in exactly the same way, just with a non-paying link. For more details, read How This Site Is Financed.

For the sake of transparency, so you can check there's no difference, here are duplicate versions of the * links that don't help MoneySavingExpert.com: Kids Pass Tesco Clubcard
