How does it work?

Early Ride Time entranceERT is available to all Merlin Annual Passholders and hotel guests. It’s worth taking advantage of as it means you will be able to experience some of the park’s attractions half an hour before the main crowds enter.

To make use of Early Ride Time simply enter the park from 9:30am onwards, showing your ERT-inclusive ticket or Merlin annual pass to an entrance host, and head to the available rides.

Please Note: ERT does not run after October 8th this season.
