It's worth keeping an eye out for half-price annual pass deals which Merlin have offered before in January - my boyfriend and I both purchased standard annual passes last year (2012) for about £80 in the sale, and they were more than worth it, especially as we both lived close to London so could take full advantage of attractions such as the eye and the dungeons, which we almost certainly wouldn't have paid to go to under normal circumstances. We also made an extra effort to get as many days in theme parks as possible - I think we racked up about 11 or 12 days during the year - and now am using this year to visit other parks (e.g. Oakwood, Blackpool etc)as we're well and truly 'Merlined-out'!
