Date inspiration with Merlin Annual Pass

Whether you need some exciting date inspiration, or fancy some alone time away from the kids, Merlin Annual Pass has you covered. Life can get busy fast and setting aside time to spend with your partner can be hard to squeeze in, but with a Merlin Annual Pass you can make your next date night one to remember.

We’ve put together the best date nights so you can start looking forward to spending quality time with your partner. Why not take your one-on-one time up a notch this Halloween with a trip to one of Thorpe Park’s Fright Nights? Running from September to November, you’ve got plenty of time to test your wits, survive the 8 scare attractions on the Fright Night line-up or watch your partner scream in fright!

If an evening of ghosts and ghouls is too spooky for you, perhaps a day out in London is more your scene? Make a weekend of it with a stroll through London’s famous sights, you can gaze over the city from above on the London Eye, or pop by Madame Tussuads for a selfie with your favourite celebs and put your partners photography skills to the test. End the day with an adults only VIP evening at SEALIFE, where you’ll be welcomed with a glass of prosecco before taking a stroll across the glass walkway, watching the sharks swimming and swirling beneath your feet! You can explore the Atlantic Cove and Pacific wreck, before enjoying a romantic drink at the bar amongst the turtles and stingrays.

Keen to put a twist on date night dinners? Head to the Rollercoaster restaurant at Alton Towers for your next romantic meal, and watch as your food loops around the room on a coaster track before arriving at your plate – there’s no dining experience quite like it. Or how about traveling back in time for a banquet dinner at Warwick Castle? Immerse yourself in the wonder of the castle and enjoy an evening feast, complete with live music and medieval entertainment.

If a more luxurious experience is what you’re after, the Blackpool Tower will keep you mesmerised with its Grand Ballroom, where you can take your partner for a spin on the ballroom floor, and enjoy a delightful afternoon tea in the most opulent of setting - you’ll be itching for a run on Strictly in no time at all. End the evening with the magical sunset view from the Blackpool Eye - it’s not a bad place to pop the big question either!

Whether it’s a fun Friday night out or a romantic weekend away, a Merlin Annual Pass is the perfect couple’s treat to make the most of your quality time together. Plus, Passholders can take advantage of exclusive access to short breaks, so if your date night destination is a bit further away, you can easily make it into an overnight stay.  So treat yourself and your special someone to a year of dates today.
