PARENTS can bag a child’s ticket to Legoland, Chessington or Sealife for just £1 – and tuck into some tasty chocolate at the same time.
Cadbury has teamed up with Merlin Entertainment to offer cheap entry for little ones when you buy the confectionery maker’s treats.
Merlin Entertainment is the firm behind some of the UK’s biggest tourist attractions, including Madam Tussauds, The Dungeons, Alton Towers and Thorpe Park.
Certain packs of Cadbury chocolates come with a voucher for free entry for a child to a Merlin attraction, which must be claimed alongside a paid for adult ticket.
Of course, the ticket isn’t completely free as you’ll need to purchase the chocolates first.
Multi-packs of Dairy Milk Buttons, Chomps, Curly Wurly, Freddo, Fudge and Dairy Milk Little Bars that feature the Merlin branding come with the coupon.
Normally, you can expect to pay around £1.25 for the treats but they’re currently on offer at Sainsbury’s and Tesco for £1.
Of course, it’s not the only way to save cash when visiting some of these attractions.
Sun readers can get two free tickets to Alton Towers, Legoland or Thorpe Park through Sun Superdays by collecting nine unique codes printed in the newspaper.
Train travellers can also get two for one entry to 20 sites including some Merlin attractions through the National Rail’s Days Out Guide when they show a train ticket at the gate.
To redeem the Cadbury voucher, you’ll need to first visit the Cadbury website and click on the attraction you want to book a ticket for.

You’ll then be taken to the booking stage of the attraction’s website. Visitors won’t be able to claim the free ticket if they book directly with the attraction without going to the Cadbury site first.
Customers should then enter the code CADBURY20 when prompted to.
You’ll also need to keep hold of the physical voucher as you’ll need to show it at the ticket office when picking up your tickets when you get there.
Visitors who haven’t pre-booked won’t be allowed in due to the coronavirus safety rules, which ensure parks don’t become overcrowded.
It’s worth noting though that the vouchers can only be claimed when you buy an adult ticket at the same time.
It means you won’t be able to claim two vouchers for two children if there’s only one accompanying adult.
Adult ticket prices vary depending on the attraction, but you can expect to pay between £29 and £53 to visit Legoland, depending on when you book.
Day tickets for Chessington cost between £34 and £48, while Sealife tickets cost around £18 depending on the location.
Only one voucher can be used per person and per transaction, and you can’t use them on top of any other promotion or concession rate tickers.
The vouchers expire on September 30 2021 so you’ve still got time to book your tickets if you’re not likely to be able to use them straightaway.
The coupons can’t be claimed on some specific days of the year either, such as Halloween or Bonfire night at some locations. You can see the full list of excluded dates here.
