The Megaband is for anyone over 0.8m, and allows unlimited riding on all the attractions (except for Go Karts and Congo Adventure Golf) as long as the customer is over the required minimum height (and below the maximum height, if applicable). It is valid for one person for one day, and is not transferable.
At Brean Theme Park, we operate on height, not age. The Sooty Tot band allows our smaller customers to unlimited rides on the Sooty Tot rides only (although the child may be tall enough to ride other attractions) and must be at least 0.8m, to approx. 1m. The bands are not suitable for people over 1.4m, except for the Caterpillar Coaster, Farm Train, Looney Tunes and Pony Express, due to the nature of the rides. It is valid for one person for one day, and is not transferable.
Dependent on which wristband you have chosen, this entitles you to ride as many times as you wish on any ride which is included in your wristband and subject to height restriction.
Brean Theme Park is a free admission Park, therefore you only pay if you ride. There are two options; you may either purchase one of our two types of wristbands (dependant on height) which will entitle you to ride as many of the rides included in your chosen wristband as many times as you wish. Or if you would like to ride on a select few of the rides, tokens are also available to be spent on a Pay As You Go basis.
Want to meet Richard and Sooty, in the fur! They’ll be on the park during school holidays on the following Wednesdays — April 19th, May 31st, August 9th and Friday October 27th, at 4pm (in place of the Mascot Meet & Greet)
It’s totally free, there’s no need to book – just turn up early, as it’s operated on a queuing system.
As it’s outdoors, don’t forget to wrap up warm if the weather’s a little chilly!
Why not visit the Sooty museum as well, and take a look at some of the iconic props used in the filming of The Sooty Show, including Sooty’s camper van!
If you’re staying at Holiday Resort Unity or Brean Leisure Park, you’re entitled to great discounts off the price of your wristbands!
Simply take your white Privilege Passes to Reception at either Unity or Brean Leisure Park (by the entrance to the Tavern), and ask for your wristband vouchers — you’ll get £5 off a Megaband, or £2.50 off a Sooty Tot band. Then take your vouchers and privilege passes to any token booth to get your discounted bands!
If you only want tokens you can get 12 tokens for the price of 10! Again, just ask for your voucher at either Reception and take it to the Park with your pass.
Please note that Unity discounts cannot be used with any other offer – eg for Fireworks half price nights, the 2 Day wristbands, or with any money off coupons.
If it rains whilst we’re open, a few of the rides may have to close, as they may become too wet to operate safely. For example, the Bumpy Slide may become too slippery, and the Go Karts, which operate on dry weather tyres (slicks) also start sliding around too much. If we experience thunder and lightning, then we close all the rides temporarily until the storm has passed, in order to guard against the possibility of lightning strikes.
If the weather is forecast to be heavy rain all day, then the decision may be taken by the Management to either delay the Park’s opening time, or not to open at all. In either case we will immediately post the information on both our Facebook page and our Twitter page, and also on the scrolling banner on the homepage.
No, we don’t provide accommodation here, but there is plenty of choice around us! There are Brean Leisure Park and Holiday Resort Unity next door (www.brean.com), and also Pontins Brean Sands (www.pontins.com/holiday-parks/brean-sands-holiday-park/) a short walk away, as well as numerous other B&B’s and caravan parks in Brean.
The minimum height is 0.8m because we believe that most children above this height are able to sit up unaided, grip the available bars/handholds and are able to brace themselves against any forces produced by the ride.
Height restrictions are in place for each of our rides in order to maintain customer safety. The Manufacturer recommends a minimum, and in some cases, a maximum height for the customer, based on the shape and design of the seats, lap bars, and locking mechanisms in conjunction with the gravitational forces produced whilst the ride is moving. We then, in conjunction with the Health & Safety Executive, set the minimum height for each ride.
