  • Look for promotional packs of Kellogg's cereal and snacks including Corn Flakes, Coco Pops, Crunchy Nut and Rice Krispie Squares (£2ish-£3ish at most supermarkets), to get a 'Free Adult Ticket' voucher for 27 UK Merlin theme parks and attractions. To get the free ticket, you'll need to purchase a full-price 'on-the-gate' child or adult ticket (norm up to £50ish).

    The vouchers can be exchanged for entry at Alton Towers, Legoland, Chessington, Sea Life centres, Madame Tussauds and more – see the full list of Merlin attractions. This is the first big 2for1 theme parks deal that most people can get that we've seen since the pandemic. Promotional packs were around earlier in the summer but you may still be able to find them in store.

    This deal can be particularly strong if going with a child, and is valid till June 2022

    If going with another adult, then effectively this is a 2for1, as you'll need to buy an adult ticket to get the free adult entry. However, this can actually work out better than a 2for1 if you’re going with a child as in this case, the paid-for ticket is a child ticket, and these are cheaper than an adult one at many attractions such as Sea Life, Chessington and Madame Tussauds.

    What also makes this deal particularly 'grrreat!' is the voucher's valid until 30 June 2022, so get it now and you've plenty of time to use it. There are some date exclusions per attraction though.

    Of course, if you aren’t going in a pair, it’s worth checking to see what other deals are available. See our round-up of current theme park deals to check which is best for you.


    Book online to guarantee entry

    Attractions are currently having to restrict visitor numbers and we don't know yet how long that will last. To guarantee entry, it's best to book your tickets online in advance at this special Merlin site. Note you'll still need to pay the on-the-gate price for the paid-for ticket. You can do this using the unique 10-digit code printed inside the cereal box.

    If there's no code (eg, on snack packs such as Rice Krispie Squares) you'll need to select the 'snack pack or cut out voucher' option when booking, and importantly, you must show your original on-pack voucher when you visit. When we checked, The Blackpool Tower Dungeon won't let you book online without a unique code.

    Vouchers from the 2020 promo have been extended till September 2021

    If you still have an unused voucher from when Kellogg's ran this promotion in early 2020, it'll have an end date of 30 June 2021 – but Merlin has confirmed it's extended these vouchers to 30 September 2021. This means if you're looking to visit one of the attractions in the next few months, you won't need a voucher from one of this year's promotional packs.

    • The 'Free Adult Ticket' offer can be found on promotional packs of Kellogg’s cereal including: Crunchy Nut, Corn Flakes, Coco Pops, Crunchy Nut Clusters, Rice Krispies, Krave, White Chocolate Coco Pops, WK Kids, Rice Krispies Multi Grain cereal packs.

      It can also be found on snack pack products including: Fruit Winders Multi Packs, Rice Krispie Squares Multi Packs, Coco Pops Bars, Frosties Bars and Rice Krispies Bars Multipacks, and Nutrigrain Multipacks.

      The 27 participating Merlin attractions

      The offer can be used at: Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures, Thorpe Park, Legoland Windsor, Warwick Castle, The Bear Grylls Adventure (valid for High Ropes, Indoor Climb and iFly indoor sky diving activities only), Shrek’s Adventure London, Madame Tussauds (London or Blackpool), The Dungeons (London, York, Edinburgh or Blackpool Tower), The Blackpool Tower Eye, The London Eye, Legoland Discovery Centres (Manchester or Birmingham), and Sea Life (Birmingham, Great Yarmouth, Loch Lomond, Blackpool, London, Brighton, Manchester, Scarborough, Hunstanton and Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park).

      The deal can only be used for standard single day entrance tickets, not for two-day or short break tickets. The age classification for an adult ticket varies between attractions (eg, at Alton Towers an adult is 12 and over, at Legoland Discovery Centres an adult is 18 and over) so make sure you check before you book online or visit.

      Exclusions

      The below 2021 dates are excluded from the offer (excluded dates for 2022 will be available from 1 Jan 2022). Also check attractions' individual opening dates as some are closed at certain times of the year.

      All Merlin attractions 30 Jul and 31 Jul 2021; every Fri, Sat & Sun in Aug 2021; 25 Dec 2021

  • Every £5 of Tesco points is worth £15 at Sea Life Centres and Sanctuaries.

    To get the offer, register or log in with Tesco*, then visit the Sea Life Centres and Sanctuaries rewards page* and enter the number of points you want to convert. At the checkout you will need to enter the codes on your Clubcard vouchers.

  • Look for promotional multipacks of Cadbury chocolates, including Dairy Milk Freddo and Buttons (norm £1ish), to get a voucher for 2for1 entry at more than 20 Merlin attractions.

    If you have a voucher from 2020, Cadbury has told us these are valid until 30 Sep 2021 and any vouchers you've picked up this year are valid for use until 31 Jul 2022. The promotional packs will be readily available in stores until October, after which they'll be harder to find. 

    Attractions include Thorpe Park, Legoland, Alton Towers, Chessington, Sea Life centres, the Dungeons, Madame Tussauds and more. Some dates are excluded at selected attractions, including some in August – see 'more info' below.

    Just present the voucher at your chosen attraction when buying one full-price on-the-gate adult ticket (usually up to £53) and another person will gain free entry.

    Promotional packs (like the ones above) are expected to be in stores until October 2021, but they're subject to availability, so could be snapped up sooner.

    How much can I save?

    As on-the-gate tickets cost up to £53 at Legoland, this deal could save you £52 if you buy one of the cheapest promotional packs of chocolate and want two tickets. Even compared with buying tickets online in advance, where they’re generally cheaper (but still as much as £44 each at Legoland), you'd save a significant amount with this deal.

    There’s also the added benefit of not having to commit to your plans seven or more days ahead – allowing you to wait and see what the weather’s like, and simply rock up at the gate with your voucher.

    Before using the voucher, you should compare this offer against others to see if there's a better one for you (see all theme park deals).

    • The participating attractions are Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures, Thorpe Park, Legoland Windsor, Warwick Castle, Shrek’s Adventure! London, Madame Tussauds London or Blackpool, The London, York, or Edinburgh Dungeons, The Blackpool Tower Eye or The Blackpool Tower Circus, Legoland Discovery Centre Manchester, Sea Life Bray, Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park and Jurassic Skyline, Sea Life centres and sanctuaries in the UK (Birmingham, Great Yarmouth, Loch Lomond, Blackpool, London, Brighton, Manchester, Scarborough and Hunstanton).

      The age classification for an adult ticket varies between attractions so make sure you check before you go. Also check the venue's individual opening dates as some are closed at certain times of the year. For example, Chessington and Legoland Windsor are closed in November. There are also some extra excluded dates listed below:
