You can buy them at a stand as you go in... last year they were £5 for the day refills, but I have a feeling the price has gone up, not sure what to though.

Shockingly, it's still £5 for a day, or £16 MAP for a year.

How do they know if you had one from the day before? Or is it barcoded?

They write a date on the capsule :)..... That way you can't just keep taking the same one bak as I did all last year :D well until they changed the capsules :/

I'm under the impression they ask for your receipt. Haven't personally seen the marker pen in action.

With the MAP bottles you get your annual pass punched with a bottle shaped hole to link it to your pass only. However I have never been asked to show my pass whenever I've filled it up.

It was the same before when I've bought the daily ones, never been asked to show the receipt. Most places, particularly Mutiny Bay Donuts, just let you fill them up without question.

I bought a refill capsule from Thorpe Park back in May and they didn't write the date of use on it so maybe I could sneak it in to AT when I next go for Scarefest? ;)

It all depends on who serves you, I have had the old last years bottles filled up lots of times and no questions asked, only one member of staff has ever questioned it.

Has anyone else noticed the difference in prices for the day capsules between parks, £5 in some parks £6 in others...

Keep an eye on the prices for those of you who visit the different parks.

Day capsules Alton £5 (last time I was there) Thorpe, Lego and Chessie £6
Rain macs Alton £5, Thorpe £6 Legoland £3.50
Pizza Pasta for 4 (ex MAP discount) Alton £30, Chessington £30, Legoland £38, I mean £12.49 for an Adults Pizza Pasta, are people seriously paying this at Legoland?

Just a tip. Those who want to buy macs get one before you go. They sell them at most £ shops
