    I'll post here next time I'm going and hopefully some of us enthusiasts can share:)

    We spent £25 there and £30 return but split that four ways and it isn't too expensive considering the time savings

    £70 is the cheaper I could find, a few firms wanted to charge £110+

    Now I know I can go via uttoxeter and it's £5ish for the train(16-25 railcard ftw) and £34 return taxi.

    It's always more fun to go together!

    I want to go back already but I'm going on exchange next year so it'll be a while! Haha

    Wow that's good value - I'm guessing you booked that taxi in advance? Something to bear in mind.

    Looking at train prices. It's most expensive to go to uttoxeter and stoke but cheapest to go to Derby

    It might be but you should also consider getting to the resort from your end station but

    Well that chopped off.
    What I was saying is it might be cheaper to get to derby but if you go on a weekend or want full park hours you will have to get a taxi and it might work out more expensive from derby then uttoxeter.

    Oh I see lol. Yes I guess so. Tbh knowing that most of the rides were open at 11am and shutting at five it seemed okay.

    Does anyone know if the x52 will be running in September or will I need to factor in taxis?

    Only up to the 3rd of September. https://www.nottsderby.co.uk/app/download/30268478/X52+2018.pdf

    Feel free to post on here when you plan to go, I'm sure someone will be willing to split the taxi fare ;)

    I would also aim to get to the park before the gates open and leave after the park closes if possible to max your day
