Members FAQs:

How do I Join the Family?

Buy your membership online now or by purchasing in person at the Admissions Desk or calling us on 01229 466086.

Can I upgrade my day entrance to a membership during my visit? 

Of course – we are always looking to expand our family!  Just visit our admissions team as you leave the park with your admission receipt and you will just need to pay the difference between what you paid us and the membership price.  If you want to upgrade once you have left us, you have 14 days to do so if you retain your admissions receipt as proof of entry.  The upgrade will need to be processed in advance not in person at your next visit as receipts will need to be shared with us via email. Drop us an email at for the attention of our membership team if you would like to upgrade under these circumstances. Memberships upgraded during or following a visit will commence on the day of your original visit.

When will my membership start from and when will it run out? 

You can choose a start date, which many prefer if purchasing as a gift.  Alternatively, memberships will start on the day of purchase if another date is not chosen.  Memberships are valid for one year from the start date, we will contact you in advance of your membership expiry date with a renewal reminder.

Can I purchase a membership as a gift?

Of course,  just make sure to tell us at the time of purchase that you are buying as a gift and we will sort the rest out for you.

Do I need to buy a Membership for my Son or Daughter? 

Entry for children under the age of 3 is free of charge.  For children aged 3 to 15, a Junior membership should be purchased or entry will need to be paid for each visit.
