Merlin logo50% off gate prices at Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, etcOn selected single packs of £1ish Walkers crisps

25 attractions

Look for promotional single packs of Walkers Wotsits, Quavers, Squares, Monster Munch and French Fries (55p-£1), which have a half-price entry voucher on the back. Each voucher gets 50% off one adult or child full-price gate ticket at one of 25 Merlin attractions, including Alton Towers, Legoland, Thorpe Park, Sea Life and Madame Tussauds.

Check online prices first

The 50% saving is based on tickets bought on the gate, which can cost up to £49.99. However online tickets (which you need to book at least a day in advance) are cheaper, so the saving against these tickets is smaller or about the same.

For example, an adult ticket on the gate at Thorpe Park is £49.99 (£25 with voucher) but only £25.99 if you book 2+ days in advance online. On the other hand, an adult gate ticket at Alton Towers is £49.20 (£24.60 with voucher) but £36.90 seven days in advance online. So use it with Thorpe Park and the deals not that strong, but use it at Alton Towers and it's cracking. Always check online prices if you know you’re visiting. 

The voucher’s valid till the end of the year but promotional packs are likely to disappear at the end of August, so grab them now if you think you might make a trip this year. Some attractions close before the end of the year and there are some excluded dates, see more info below. See the T&Cs for a full list of attractions

More info

We got in touch with Walkers and it says the packs will be delivered to retailers until the end of August, although it couldn't give an exact date and it's while stocks last. It's valid on single standard or grab bag packs.  

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 there's more than one of you in your group with a voucher, 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. 

There are some extra excluded dates listed below:

  • 25-30 Oct 2014 at The Blackpool Tower Attractions
  • 11 Oct-2 Nov 2014 at Thorpe Park
  • 30-31 Oct 2014 at York, Edinburgh and Blackpool Dungeons (voucher excludes London Dungeon) 
  • 8-9 Nov 2014 at Alton Towers
  • 25 Dec 2014 at all attractions
  • any special events, hotel events, concerts at all attractions


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
  • combination tickets, 2 Day Pass, Annual Pass, Q-bot, Fastrack, or rail inclusive tickets
  • event or concert tickets
  • group bookings

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

Save up to £50
Buy a National Rail ticket and register 'n' print a voucher from Days Out Guide to get 2for1 entry to some top UK attractions, incl Drayton Manor, Madame Tussauds, Legoland, London Zoo (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. It's worth doing this even if you’re not travelling by train – a cheap single ticket is available for a couple of quid, far cheaper than the entry ticket price (Thorpe Park is the most expensive at £50 on the gate). 

So 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 valid until Thu 31 Oct, but check the voucher for each individual attraction's restrictions, as these vary.
MSE Freddie says:

Electronic ticket barriers can sometimes gobble up your ticket, so to make sure you don't lose your proof of travel, ask a member of the station staff 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.

Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a secret phrase that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. "Section 75" laws means your plastic must protect anything you buy over £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust you can still get your money back.

Although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards there is something else to fall back on if you paid on a Visa debit or electron card, or Visa credit card under £100 (otherwise go for Section 75). Known as Visa Chargeback, this is part of Visa's internal rules and not a legal requirement. Full details of Section 75, chargeback and how to claim in the Section 75 Refunds guide.

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.
