I’ve heard people talk about Merlin Passes – what are they?
Merlin Passes are annual passes which admit adults and children into Merlin Attractions including Chessington World of Adventures, Madame Tussauds, Alton Towers and more. Details can be found by clicking here
If a disabled Merlin Annual Passholder requires assistance on their visits to a Merlin attractions, you can apply for a free carer pass. They issue one free carer pass per disabled Passholder which is transferable between carers. The disabled guest’s and carer’s Passes will have the name, date of birth and a photo of the disabled guest.
To obtain a complimentary carer pass, simply purchase a Merlin Annual Pass for the disabled guest in the usual way. The complimentary carer Pass will be issued on your first visit to the attractions.
You'll need to provide proof of disability when getting your Passes issued, this can be any of the following:
- Disabled Living Allowance letter (DLA)
- Blue Badge (photo ID required)
- Signed letter from GP (photo ID required)
Remember you will not need to pay for the carer pass. Therefore, if your group consists of four people, including the carer, you will need to pay for three people and collect the free carer pass on your first visit. When renewing, you will need to present these documents again as they recognise that disabled status and assistance required may change from year-to-year. If you collect Tesco Clubcard points, you can use these to buy a Merlin Pass
