Re: February Half Term 2013

Yes there will be lots. It began to appear in the shop at Scarefest last year. There was no merchandise for 'The Smiler' on sale. I'm afraid that's incorrect. There were mugs and other items displaying the logo. They may not have had The Smiler name, but obviously that is what they represent.

Their argument is that the drink should not be shared, it is for an individual's use. It's no different to the All Day Dining scheme.

Re: The Swarm Confirmed Modifications

I think this will be very popular among the average guest, but unpopular among people that know the back seats of rides are usually the best!

Re: The Merlin Annual Pass

No, they don't post passes to you, you need to collect in person. Make a phone call if you are after a gift voucher to serve as a present.

And yes, I meant standard can't be used in August and don't include parking.
