Best theme parks in the UK
Some parks are better for littluns, whilst others specialise in adrenaline
Friday 25 July 2014
There’s no denying that theme parks can cost a bomb. But provided you plan ahead, for example by booking early and online and bringing a picnic, you can keep costs down for a day that is fun-filled and a firm favourite among children of all ages.
Good news is that growing competition means the UK’s theme parks are forced to provide regular offers such as two-for-one tickets, as well as offering lower prices for family tickets, and if you plan to visit regularly, annual passes can save you a fortune.
Do your homework though. Some of the parks are better for littluns, whilst others specialise in the white knuckle rides more suitable for teenagers upwards. Then there are those that cater for all ages, even grandparents.
Too far to travel? A growing number of theme parks have their own hotels, while others have teamed up with local hotels to offer deals.
