Yes. We ask that anyone under 16 obtain permission from their parents prior to attending. Please contact us for further details. We strongly advise that anyone under 16 is accompanied by a responsible adult.

Taken from the FAQ page on the Events site.

Hey guys, me and friend plan on buying an event ticket and coming but the 11th of October doesn't show up as a bookable date on the Eventbrite page.. We are both VIP passholders.

Does anyone have any ideas? I've already emailed one of the Merlin team reps, am just awaiting a reply. :)

After having a quick look myself it would seem that this is true and would seem to identify this as a sold out day for VIP/Premiuim pass holder tickets. You will now have to wait for merlin to get back to you, about what to do.

I believe that they have removed the need for VIP Passholders to book in advance, but would still be grateful if you let them know that you're planning on being there.

Not according to the website Lewis it still states that VIP and Premium must pre-book the Free entry and when I spoke to someone on the phone today she mentioned, remember if you're planning on visiting during Fright nights Premium and VIP guest must prebook there entry online.

From what I understand as there's been confusion previously, VIPs AP's can book in via the VIP website too. This is taken from a Merlin communication. You've got to keep in mind that the VIP Pass is restrictionless - so they most likely have to honour Fright Nights entrance.

The Premium annual pass is also restrictionless so I assume they'd have to honour this too

I spoke with the Merlin VIP guys earlier today via phone, I was told that it wasn't a problem and that we need to book via the VIP form if the date is not showing on the eventbrite link.

It would be silly, if they said we couldn't attend to be fair.

Thanks for your help though everyone. :)

Just a quick question. Will it be the same as Summer Sizzler with regards to VIP wristbands, or do we have to let Thorpe know ourselves?

I'll be on park, but I won't be able to spend the whole day with you guys unfortunately (taking some first-time Fright Night attendees with me :3). I'll be sure to say hi if I see you though! :D

Less than a week to go. It is time to turn up the terror and start the countdown! :D

Looking forward to meeting everyone again. Does anyone have any plans for the Sunday yet? Are we dressing up :?
