2017/18 MERLIN ANNUAL PASS PACKAGES

From the 28th November 2017, following a review of our Merlin Annual Pass packages there will be some changes to both new and renewing, Standard and Premium Merlin Annual Passes.

Standard Merlin Annual Passes

Standard Merlin Annual Pass, new or renewed purchased on or after 28th November will no longer include Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in August including September 1st and 2nd at five of our busiest attractions (Chessington World of Adventures Resort, THORPE PARK Resort, Alton Towers Resort, Warwick Castle and LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort). There will be no change in pricing for the Standard Merlin Annual Pass. 

This will not change the existing restrictions which apply to the remaining 27 attractions and does not affect current passes until they renew.

Premium Merlin Annual Passes

The price of Premium new and renewal passes will be increasing by £10 per pass. We have also made some small changes to clarify the usage restrictions for the Share the Fun Vouchers. Our full terms and conditions will be available to view from the 28th November.

This will not affect current passes until they renew.

Are you putting the prices up on the Standard Pass package?

No. We are holding the prices on the Standard Passes.

What are the changes to the Standard Pass package?

We are holding our prices and we are making some restrictions to the usage dates. Standard Passholders will no longer be able to use their pass on Friday’s, Saturday’s and Sunday’s in August (Incl. 1st & 2nd September) at the following attractions: Alton Towers Resort, Chessington World of Adventures Resort, LEGOLAND® Windsor Resort, THORPE PARK Resort and Warwick Castle.  However the Pass can still be used Monday to Thursday throughout August at the attractions listed above.

Should Standard Passholders wish to visit during these dates there will be special rates available, details of which will be announced in 2018.

Why have you put the Premium pass prices up?

To reflect the fantastic range of new rides and attractions that our Passholders will find within the world of Merlin.

What are the changes to the Premium Pass package?

From the 28th November 2017 we will be launching our 2017/18 prices and terms.  The price of Premium new and renewal passes will be increasing by £10 per pass. We have also made some changes to the usage restrictions for the Share the Fun Vouchers. Our full terms and conditions will be available to view from the 28th November.

Will there be any restrictions during August for Premium Passholders?

There will be no restriction dates for Premium Passholders throughout the month of August however there may be an event fee for any special events that happen throughout this time.

Will this change the way my current Pass operates?

No. This change only applies to new and renewed passes after the 28th November 2017.

Should I buy an Annual Pass now or wait until the new packages come in?

The Merlin Annual Pass represents great value at any time however if you wish to purchase at the 2016/17 terms and pricing then you can purchase prior to the 28th November 2017.  Alternatively, our January sale will continue to offer competitive prices.

Why do we change the Merlin Annual Pass pricing?

Merlin Annual Pass packages and pricing are adjusted as we introduce new products (such as rides and attractions), implement changes to improve our guest experiences and respond to market changes. And currently, Merlin Annual Passholders are enjoying visits to our attractions for £13 on average.
