  7. Tickets must be booked at the latest by midnight the day before your planned visit.
  8. We regret that tickets purchased prior to the release of an offer cannot be refunded regardless of the date of visit or time of purchase.
  9. Online tickets are not valid in conjunction with other discount schemes or vouchers such as Tesco ClubCard vouchers, and any free entry ticket. These vouchers can only be used when accompanied by an adult paying the full individual daily gate price. Please read the terms on any voucher carefully before purchasing online tickets.
  10. Online tickets do not guarantee FastTrack entry but are the cheapest rate available. Visitors will still be required to have tickets redeemed and verified at our entry gates.

  20. An additional charge is made for our optional activities - SPARK, Panning for Gold, Vertical Limit (climbing wall),Penguin Plunge (inflatable slide),and Dino Dig. These attractions are open during East Sussex school holidays and most weekends – but several are weather dependent. Facilities are not available from the end of October half term until the middle of January due to our Christmas attraction.
  21. All our email and voucher offers are made in good faith and are targeted marketing initiatives. They are not a general reduction of our prices and in circumstances where an email or voucher is not received, is not seen (for whatever reason),or goes into “junk” we do not reimburse the visitor or member in circumstances where they may have paid the full entry price. Furthermore, the physical production of any email offer or voucher at the entry gate is a condition of the offer.
