Look for promotional packs of Cadbury chocolates, including Chocolate Orange Minis, Dairy Milk Giant Buttons and Crunchie Rocks (available for £1-£2.99 at most supermarkets until early Sep 2017), to get a voucher for 2for1 entry at more than 20 Merlin attractions.
The voucher’s valid until 31 Jul 2018 at attractions including Legoland, Thorpe Park, Chessington, Alton Towers, Sea Life centres and sanctuaries, the Dungeons and Madame Tussauds. 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 £60) and another person will gain free entry.
How much can I save?
As on-the-gate tickets cost up to £60 at Legoland, this deal could save you £59 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 (they’re up to £45 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.
