UK theme park annual passes return – with unlimited visits to Alton Towers, Thorpe Park and Legoland

ROLLERCOASTER fans can now enjoy theme parks every day as Merlin restarts their annual passes for the UK theme parks.

Starting from £89, the passes let guests visit all year round, with some of the passes including every single date of the 2021/2022 season.

The Annual Passes, launched by Merlin Entertainment, gives you access to theme parks and attractions all across the UK, including the big tourist attractions in London.

This includes:

  • Thorpe Park
  • Alton Towers
  • Chessington World of Adventures
  • Legoland
  • London Eye
  • Madame Tussauds
  • Warwick Castle
  • Shrek's Adventure! London
  • Blackpool Tower

The most affordable pass is the Discovery Pass which costs £89 for the year, although this doesn't include all dates, with all of August not included.

The Gold Pass, costing £219, or £14.99 a month with a £49.99 joining fee, has more dates available including August, as well as extra perks such as free parking, Fastrack vouchers, 50 per cent off vouchers for friends and family and 20 per cent off the shops and food stalls.

The Platinum Pass lets guests visit all of the parks for 364 days a year, although will set you back £299 for the year, or £19.99 a month with the £59.99 joining fee.

Many of the theme parks, which were forced to close during the pandemic, have all announced exciting new rides for guests this year.

Chessington have their new Croc Drop ride, while Legoland launched their whole new land, MYTHICA: World of Mythical Creatures with the flying theatre ride, Flight of the Sky Lion.

The World of David Walliams has opened at Alton Towers this year too, including the new Gangsta Granny ride.

Jordan Middleton, Senior Marketing Manager for Merlin Annual Pass, said: “We’re very excited to announce that the Merlin Annual Pass is back once again.

"After the turbulent 18 months the country has had there’s never been a better time to reconnect with each other and explore the range of attractions, theme parks and experiences we have on offer.”
