Ticketing

 

All guests to the attraction require a valid ticket.  Entry without a valid ticket will be prohibited, and any losses incurred by the guest will not be entitled to any form of redress.  This attraction offers a range of different ticketing options, including E-ticketing via the attraction website or third party partner, tickets purchased directly at the attraction, or discounted tickets via available promotion.

 

Whilst all tickets are subject to these Terms & Conditions, guests must ensure that they are adhering to any specific limitations or requirements which may affect the validity of their ticket.  This may include, but is not limited to; restrictions on date or method of redemption, limitations on the number of guests entitled to redemption and any requirements for tickets which must be purchased alongside a promotion.  Any limitations or requirements in addition to these Terms & Conditions are detailed on the ticket or voucher.  We reserve the right to add or amend these limitations or requirements at any time and without notice.

 

When paying for an order, your bank will send us an authorisation code to confirm there are funds in the account. Your bank will then proceed to ‘shadow’ the value of your order (this means they reserve the funds so that they cannot be spent elsewhere). The bank does this in anticipation of receiving a successful status against the transaction. When the bank is advised the transaction has been successful and that the funds are to be processed, this will ensure the funds are allocated correctly. However, if the transaction is not successfully completed (e.g. if the payment is declined or a discrepancy in the information entered) then the funds will go back into your account. Occasionally the ‘shadow’ may remain on your account for between 3-6 days depending on your bank.

 

Online Saver dated tickets are non-refundable once purchased. All ticket types for this attraction are non-refundable once redeemed.

 

All E-tickets and promotional discounts must be clearly legible at the time of redemption at the attraction.  It is the responsibility of the guest to ensure that they have the correct ticket types and quantities for their party.  Amendments, variations to quantities or replacement tickets completed at the attraction will be charged at gate price.

 

A concession rate for guests aged 60+ and students is available upon proof of eligibility.  Guests with health conditions or impairments may also be entitled to the concession rate.  A free of charge carer’s ticket is available for 1 carer per concession ticket upon proof of eligibility.  Accepted forms of eligibility include; Disability Living Allowance or Attendee Allowance aware letter (dated within the last 6 months), Personal Independent Payment letter (dated within the last 6 months), current and valid Blue Badge, letter from GP or Consultant (dated within the last 6 months) confirming the need for a full time carer.

 

This attraction offers a Ride Access Pass scheme for guests who struggle to stand for long periods of time either because of physical or learning/emotional impairment, or requiring a ‘step free’ means of access to some of our ride and attractions.  Please note that admission via a concession rate will not automatically entitle use of the Ride Access Pass scheme.  Accepted forms of eligibility include; Disability Living Allowance or Attendee Allowance aware letter (dated within the last 6 months) showing that you receive the higher rate mobility component, Personal Independent Payment letter (dated within the last 6 months) showing that you receive the enhanced mobility component, current and valid Blue Badge.  Further information regarding the Ride Access Pass scheme can be found at www.OakwoodThemePark.co.uk/RideInformation
