Win a Merlin Annual pass to LEGOLAND Windsor, The Alton Towers Resort and many more

COMPETITION NOW CLOSED: Thanks for all your entries

Have you ever considered buying an annual pass from Merlin?  Do you love visiting LEGOLAND Windsor, Alton Towers Resort and the SEA LIFE Centres? 

Then you probably should.

It's certainly been one of my considerations over the last few years, a couple of years ago I became very close to exchanging the points I'd stored up with a supermarket chain for one.

It reads like I am touting Merlin Annual passes, which I guess I am in part, but I've actually got one to giveaway.


This week I have an excellent prize up for grabs for a family to win a Family Standard Merlin Annual Pass!  The pass will allow access to 30 of the UK’s top attractions for 12 months including Alton Towers Resort, SEA LIFE Birmingham, Warwick Castle, EDF Energy London Eye and more!

Pass holders also have access to a whole host of money and time saving perks in the attractions including up to 20% off in shops and restaurants, early ride time and discounted overnight stays at the Alton Towers Resort.

Lots of Passholder Perks from specially selected partners are also available including kids eat FREE at Hard Rock Cafe, London or Manchester.

The Family Standard Annual Pass is valid for families of 3, 4 or 5 people and further details can be found at

For your chance to win all you need to do is tell me which of Merlin's attractions you'd visit first if you won the pass for your family.  You can do that in the comment section below, or alternatively you can leave your entry via the Single Parent Dad Facebook page.  Leaving your comment in both places will double your chance of winning!

Good luck.
