Name and shame them.

so you pay to go in and then pay again to go on stuff? that sounds like a rip off.

I can't help thinking there's more to life than artificial theme parks. Get out and do some free stuff with the kids.

Not Wicksteed is it?

Well considering £96 can get you an annual pass to Chessington, thorpe park, lego land, alton towers and lots more with all rides included, that is appalling!

caffevalium - you are aware that just because you go to a theme park it doesn't mean you are banned from ever doing anything else?
It is quite possible to go to a theme park one day and then do something else the next day.

so you get to pay them £80 to have the privilege of giving them your money? how lovely!!!

Blackpool? We are put off going for that very reason. Tia a shame cos DS would love it there, even if it's naff.

I'm sure it is Nancy. I'm questioning the reliance on theme parks where once they used to be a treat. I just happen to think children should grow up aware of the natural beauty that is so abundant in this country and not assume that flashing whirring plastic is all there is.

caffevalium - I don't think one day out of the whole 6 week holiday is going to make any kid think the whole world looks like lego land

Natural beauty is great, but there's nothing wrong with the excitement of a theme park too. My Dad's company used to have a scheme where the kids could go to Wicksteed if they paid in all year. It was a major highlight of the year where we were so excited.

We got took to farms etc. as the norm.

I don't see anyone relying on theme parks or unaware of natural beauty that is abundant...

Is it Blackpool pleasure beach?

We won't go there now they have introduced the entrance fee.

Its not Longleat by chance - not a theme park as such but they've just started ripping off their local customers this year.

yanbu and we didnt realise that 10am is the opening time of the park but not necessarily of the rides.. most open later meaning you have to spend money on amusesments etc while waiting for them to open ...

they must make a fortune

Ridiculous. I have paid £83 each for me and DS for a years entrance to a family theme park, rides, water parks and shows included AND we can take a picnic. grin
