Cheap Theme Parks

MSE Update, Mon 6 Jul at 9am: Following the Government's advice to avoid furthering the spread of the coronavirus, all theme parks temporarily closed, but as of Sat 4 Jul, many have reopened. Chessington and Thorpe Park and many others can now be booked, but guests are asked to observe stringent new hygiene measures on the day. Be aware that some rides and attractions will remain closed, so check ahead before booking.

 

Some Merlin attractions, such as Legoland Discovery Centres are still closed, with no opening date yet announced. Sea Life London is closed until further notice but you can now book open dated standard tickets and selected combination tickets for later in the year. Ticket holders should get in touch to change dates.

 

Alton TowersChessingtonThorpe ParkWarwick Castle and Legoland Windsor are now open and bookable. Visit the individual site to read about the new hygiene and distancing rules.

 

Merlin contacted anyone who had a short break booked during the closure to make other arrangements, and Merlin pass holders had their passes automatically frozen or extended, depending on the type of pass.

 

Blackpool Pleasure Beach is now open. Guests who had visits booked during the closure were able to transfer to a new date without having to pay the difference. Visit the site to read about the new hygiene and distancing rules.

 

Drayton Park is closed until further notice. It has been contacting ticket and season pass holders to offer alternative dates. 

 

Flamingo Land is closed until further notice. If you've got an annual pass, it will be valid for 12 months from the day the park reopens (though of course, they don't know yet when that will be). Annual pass holders should have been contacted directly already to confirm this. Flamingo Land's website explains that many of its dedicated team of keepers are continuing to work to care for the 1200 animals at this time.

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.
