FunWorks passes

What are FunWorks passes?

FunWorks passes are also known as your ‘entertainment pass’ and allow access to our FunWorks entertainment complex. With these you can use the pools, participate in the kids’ clubs, together with the use of the leisure and entertainment facilities, which includes bars, restaurants, ShowBars and some sports and water activities. Some activities are subject to an extra charge.

How much do FunWorks passes cost?

FunWorks passes are included in the total cost of your holiday when booked directly on our website or through a travel agent. You will be given a pass for each guest listed on your booking.

I have booked privately and need FunWorks passes for my holiday
If you have booked your holiday privately with an owner, you will need to purchase our FunWorks passes to access all the facilities. You can do this by calling the park direct on 01253 767544.
What’s the difference between a FunWorks pass and Activity Bundle?

Activity Bundles can be purchased in addition to your booking. Bundle 1 has 12 passes and Bundle 2 comes with 24. These passes can be used to book onto the activities which require an extra cost such as AquaJets, Water Walkerz, Archery coaching and many more sports and water activities. If purchased before arrival, you will be able to pre-book your activities on My Haven Holiday up until midnight the day before your arrival, subject to availability. Some activities may require more than one pass, per person, per activity.

Do you sell day passes?

No, our park facilities are intended for the use of our holiday guests only.
