You may have read my previous post about our “free” trip to chessington with The Sun Superdays. I did the whole process again and this time got “free tickets to Legoland.
I didn’t explain in much detail in the last post what I did but I will in this one. So there are 4 simple steps you do to get your “free” tickets.
The Sun newspaper isn’t free so technically the tickets aren’t free – 50p weekdays, or 70p on Saturdays), and The Sun on Sunday (£1) – but it all works out cheaper. A lot cheaper than going to buy a ticket online which are around £45. All you have to do is put in the effort and going out each day to buy the newspaper.
The only downside is that you cannot pick a specific date. You will have to choose 5 date bands (which you will see on the application form) in order of preference and you will be given your tickets on a specific date within one of these bands. It’s good for those still on maternity leave, part timers or not working at all. You just got to hope you get the date you want that’s why it’s a good idea to send it all off straight away once you’ve collected all 10 tokens.
Ok I think that’s enough of the boring stuff. Now let’s talk Legoland! Fun day out (minus the rain) Forgot to mention that it’s free for under 3s so if The Sun have the same offer next year and your little one is under 3 then being a long a friend like I did.
So what did we do?
We saw a puppet version of Cinderella at the Duplo Valley theatre which myself and the kids throughly enjoyed!
There are a decent amount of toddler/baby friendly rides. With a lot of rides I noticed that you had to be a certain height which is good if you have a slightly tall toddler but unfortunately for us little miss was a little small so we will definitely be visiting again in a few years time.
We went on a submarine ride and got to see some fishes and lego divers.
*download the Legoland app for ride waiting times, map and more details on what rides are suitable for your little ones
*pre order your parking online just so it’s cheaper
*if you don’t want to bring your own buggy you can hire one for the day for a fee
*there are plenty of baby changing facilities around the resort
*There are buggy parks nearby the rides but always remember to bring your valuables with you
*buy a waterproof poncho beforehand. Legoland ones are £3.50 and you can get 2 for £1 in Poundland. They do kids sizes too
*if you’re not into spending loads on food then bring a packed lunch and enough snacks and water to last the day.
*check special packs of Kellogg’s cereal and Cadbury chocolates for 241 vouchers that you can use on the day to get your tickets cheaper.
