    More like two corporate parks trying desperately to be relatable and trendy, because they've seen some article about how casual tweets builds your audience and don't have anything worthwhile about the park to post.

    If we are lucky and Merlin decided not to abolish ERT for good, I recon that there is a high chance that it will be the usual CBeebies land and one other rollercoaster that will usually be broken down first thing in the mornings :rolleyes:

    Due to budget cuts it's now moving to mobile first like Thorpe.

    Will be crazy if they do not open tree top quest for 2019 given the enchanted sheds guests will be wanting some extra stuff to do near their, erm, sheds

    Where did you hear this, out of interest?

    I'm sure Alton will give us something to justify this increase (there are technically 2 new experiences coming in 2019, after all.), but I must admit that nearly a 10% increase on last year is quite a large increase (correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't entry £55 in 2018?).

    Some affiliate paperwork I came across mentions it.
    It could just be a typo but it's odd either way

    It says something if we don't know if it's incompetence or a marketing ploy.

    This would make sense if it included entry to dungeons. That was apparently supposed to be around £5 so ye

    This is such a Six Flags style pricing structure. Fair enough if it works.

    Season passes are £55 now, doesn’t mean they won’t go up in March to match the higher gate price.

    I remember a few years ago when everyone waited for the Merlin January sale, then they didn't do it and the prices went up instead... Merlin got absolutely slated. I'd like to think they wouldn't do that again but who knows...
