Thanks for the update guys. What a shambles. No way on earth am I paying £40 to go PB. Hahahaha.
Am I the only person who doesn’t think £40 for a day out at BPB is too expensive? I’ve always got on more rides at BPB in 6 hours than I have at Alton. £40 is under 4 and a half hours work now days at NMW. Maybe living in a major tourist destination in Cornwall has skewed my outlook on pricing, but I can’t even have a night out for £40 anymore! Heck a round for 4 cost me over £25 at my local the other day!
Merlin have massively cut the circulation of offers and bargain bin passes. The online price is also fair for the Merlin parks now.
8 rides at £38 works out at £4.xx per ride. Probably reasonable vs. a funfair. I think most families would be fairly happy with 8-10 rides per day in all honesty. Us geeks wouldn't but most folk I think yes.I managed to get the half price offer 2 days before I went, and the park was very busy.
I actually tried a few days earlier and couldn't book but checked again 2 days before and it let me book it. (I could have even booked the day before)
At that price it makes it decent value but I don't think the general online price is good value for a busy day. I managed 10 rides in over 8 and a half hours . And apart from a 30 minute stop for pizza I was trying my best to get as many rides in as possible. So I was probably stood in queues for close to 7 hours in total.

I don't think the price per ride is the issue. I would have gladly paid £40 to visit towers with 10 ride tokens that I could use when I felt like it if there were no long queues. I could have taken my time, enjoyed the gardens (and ruins if they were open), had a beer or two and just gone on a ride when I felt like it.8 rides at £38 works out at £4.xx per ride. Probably reasonable vs. a funfair. I think most families would be fairly happy with 8-10 rides per day in all honesty. Us geeks wouldn't but most folk I think yes.

Or remove all fasttrack options so everyone is in the same boat again and it’s just one steadily moving queue.This is a problem with all POP parks unless you can visit on off peak days or you have deep pockets to pay for queue jumping.
The only solution I can envisage apart from pay per ride is to have a virtual queuing system as standard for all guests.
Do they know it's been closed all year and all of last year?
I love Valhalla, but it hasn't deserved this award for at least the last 5 years. On a more exciting note though, I do really like this promo image. PB now need to get it plastered over the park!
