Summer holiday fun at UK's top theme parks

22nd August 2014 Print

Travel experts Bakers Dolphin have reported that their most popular day trips during the school summer holidays are those to theme and adventure parks, as families enjoy the convenience of all-inclusive travel and ticket packages.

The coach operators, based in Weston-super-Mare, transport people from the South West to all the biggest theme parks in the UK including Alton Towers, Chessington World of Adventures, Thorpe Park and LEGOLAND and run various departure dates throughout the year.

With new rides launching every year, the attractions prove popular with couples, families and groups from the South West looking for a fun day out.

Bakers Dolphin Sales and Marketing Director Amanda Harrington said: “In the last year we have seen an increasing trend for people taking several one-day trips throughout the year rather than going on an extended holiday.

“This is especially true during the school summer holidays when parents are constantly looking for things to do to entertain the children.

“One of our most popular offerings is the packages we put together for the UK’s best theme parks, which includes travel to and from the Westcountry as well as entry.

“The attractions offer a great full day out for the whole family and we find that larger families and groups in particular enjoy using our services as it means they can all travel together instead of having to take multiple cars.

“The travelling time is all part of the experience and excitement of the day and with pick-ups across the South West, it couldn’t be easier.

“Day trips to theme parks like LEGOLAND, Drayton Manor and Cbeebies Land is a great way to break up the long summer for the children. It is also a great opportunity to get away with a group of friends for the day.

“The parks are constantly renewing and launching new rides for people to try so even if you’ve been before there will always be something new to see or do.

“Cbeebies Land opened this year and caters for younger children, featuring a tree top adventure, a science lab and an In The Night Garden magical boat ride.

“Thorpe Park and Chessington have also upgraded this year with Thorpe Park opening an Angry Birds Land and Chessington launching the new Scorpion Express ride. Chessington also offers great value for money with a zoo, sea life centre and other activities all included in the ticket price.”
