It is but there isn't an option to buy a Fireworks-only ticket. You would have to pay an admission fee to access the park, even if all you want to do is view the Fireworks display.

On Friday there is an after 4pm ticket available for £18. On Saturday and Sunday it doesn't matter what time you arrive, it is full price for entry to the park.

Again, on the subject of fireworks, on the Saturday if you arrive from 2:00-3:00PM will there be parking space? And I assume annual pass holder's don't have to prebook...

Annual Pass holders don't have to pre-book.

If you're arriving at that time I would be surprised if you're not directed to an overflow car park, as the Saturday of Fireworks is one of the busiest days of the season.

Queue times have been very quiet today with most rides showing as being under 15 minutes. You should be able to get plenty of rides in :) Enjoy your day!

Hi all,

Just wondering what the rides are like in general with the rain. Planning to go tomorrow and the forecast isn't great. Can we expect all rides to be running normally or should we expect them to close a lot? And are there any in particular that are more likely to close.

Also, whilst I'm here... do you think the bad weather tomorrow will put many people off or do you think it will be busy as ever with the fireworks?

Thanks in advance!

Usually rides will still run during the rain, although this may be with reduced capacity, however they may close if there is any lightning. I've heard that they're expecting around 28,000 people tomorrow and I doubt too many will be put off by the weather.
