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, Thorpe Park, Sea Life centres and sanctuaries and Madame Tussauds, until 30 Jun 2016. It also includes the London Eye, but only until 3 Apr 2015. 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. So if you’re planning a trip, check online first.
We couldn’t find any current offers when we looked, but a standard adult off-peak Thorpe Park ticket is £49.99 on the gate but costs £24.99 in advance online – so using the voucher will cost the same as booking online for two adults.
On the other hand, an adult gate ticket at Alton Towers is £50.40 but £37.80 seven days in advance online, so the voucher saves £25.20 for two adults.
Also make sure there are no other deals on, as attractions have offers all year round. The Sun currently has an offer to collect codes in its newspaper to get a pair of 'free' Alton Towers tickets. Although this is the cheapest way to get them, it’s quite a bit of hassle and the valid dates aren't as flexible as this 2for1 deal. All info on our Alton Towers page.
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.
