Theme Parks

Posted on: Thursday 31st of May 2018

Scream if you wanna go faster!

Who doesn’t like going to a theme park? They’re great fun for all the family, and with fast rides and fast food, it’s easy to see why they are one of the most popular days out during the summer.

But with so much fun being had the day can seem to fly-by, leaving you wanting more, particularly during busy periods when you can spend a lot of your time queuing. So why not stay longer?

Many theme parks now offer two-day passes, and sometimes it can work out cheaper to get an annual park pass. This allows you to explore the park at your own leisure, without feeling rushed, giving you plenty of time to hop on your favourite ride for the 5th time.

We’ve found some great campsites just a stones throw from some of the biggest theme parks in the country, giving you somewhere quiet to relax and recover after a busy days screaming!
