Anyone else thinking about going to this? My husband fancies taking our children (7 and 4) but I'm not sure. The video on the Lollibop website looks great but I'm worried that it will be packed and lots of activities that we need to pay extra for.
Did anyone go last year?

I haven't been but it does look great. It seems as though it's all free once you've bought your ticket.

See: What is Lollibop where it says "Plus once you have paid your ticket price everything is FREE (apart from food, drinks and gifts from our markets)".

We're up in Yorkshire, otherwise I'd be going myself.

Any one wanting to buy Lollibop tickets should go to wish4ticket to buy their tickets its the cheapest ticket selling site ive found

JinxyCat · 13/07/2012 20:23

I went last year and it was really good, you really didn't have to pay for anything apart from food and drink - although there were still queues.

I'd really recommend it, in fact am buying my tickets now - thanks for the tip on wish4ticket, joey0182

we went last year took our 2 kids one was under 1 at the time and all had a brilliant time. my DS was totally awe at meeting Bob the builder and watching Zing Zillas on stage and there was ample baby change and feeding areas and even though it tipped it down with rain for a fair amount of the day we still had a great time. I particularly liked all the bouncing kangeroo men on stilts and the huge moving sculptures there was a giant lobster I remember. All in all although expensive it was worth it and we are going back again this year. We took a packed lunch to reduce the cost.

Thanks so much for your reports, looks like we'll be going!

I have heard that wish4ticket are doing 50% off for 72 hours over next weekend! I am holding out till then.

check out some reviews i've found was thinking of taking my 2 yr old, the reviews warn of long queues for everything which is a bit of a turn off and the fact that you can't really get that close to any of the characters... I'm still undecided, I think that my LO would have fun but I don't fancy all the queues...

I've just heard on the grapevine that wish4tickets are offering an even better deal than the one ticketmaster is offering but it starts next weekend

milkymocha · 09/08/2012 10:49

Its a absolutely brilliant day out!
Couldnt recommend it enough!

SarahJ01 · 10/08/2012 11:11

Do you know if the wish4tickets offer is live yet? I've logged on to their website and can see a space for a promo code, but don't know what it is. Does anyone know? I can't quite bring myself to spend the full amount on the tickets, but really want to take my son!

twittertotter · 13/08/2012 12:56

Bump... Anyone have the MN password for this?

milkymocha · 13/08/2012 13:08

I uses the wish4ticket code a few weeka ago, tried to do it again (by pressing the same link on the email sent to me) and it no longer deducted 50% so i assume it is no longer working :(
If i see any more codes i will post them here for you all!

twittertotter · 13/08/2012 13:30

Thanks milky. Appreciate you trying!

KatieBrennan · 13/08/2012 19:26

I have just been in and typed in LOLLIBOPMUMS and got the promotional price

twittertotter · 13/08/2012 20:04

Thanks Katie, that worked. Grin

Just need the great British summer to arrive now !

CCMOO1 · 14/08/2012 11:18

Hi Ive just tried to purchase tickets via ticketmaster and its telling me none available and to check the mums net password - can anyone help on this??

mumtomoley · 14/08/2012 13:11

CCMOO1 I had the same problem... Don't really want to pay £50 for just me and DS!

mumtomoley · 14/08/2012 13:12

milkymocha - it probably didn't work because you had already used it? Do you mind sharing the promo code you got?

milkymocha · 14/08/2012 14:04

Hi! I got a link from telling me about it, i clicked the link and booked the tickets. I didnt enter any code. It deducted itself?
Iam happy to forward to email but, not sure it will work?

milkymocha · 14/08/2012 14:04

I mean I got an email from wish4ticket!

KatMumsnet · 15/08/2012 12:29

Hi there,

Our 50% off Mumsnet offer which featured in our Money Saver newsletter was valid until the 2nd of August. We can see that the offer is still active on Ticketmaster and our Sales team are currently in contact with LolliBop to see what's happening - we'll get back to you shortly.

Clairerogers123 · 15/08/2012 14:03
