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 01758 612112.
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?
Yes - Please call the park direct on the morning you would like to visit to ensure we are accepting visitors on that day to avoid any disappointment. (Subject to availability).

How to get here

By car

From the North & North West At Chester, pick up the A55 and A5. Join A487 to Caernarfon, then A499 to Pwllheli. Then A497 to Pothmadog. The park is on the right, approximately 3 miles out of Pwllheli.

From the Midlands & the South M54 to Telford, A5 past Oswestry and Llangollen. Take A494 to Bala. In Bala turn right for Porthmadog. Turn left at the roundabout in Porthmadog, signposted Criccieth and Pwllheli. The park is on the left, 3 miles out of Criccieth.

If programming your SAT NAV device, please use postcode: LL53 6HJ. This will guide you directly to Hafan y Môr where you will be able to follow the signs for directions to the park. You can also use Google naps for a door to door route planner.

We recommend you use a road map or route planner in conjunction with your Sat Nav, as not all systems recognise our postcode.

By train

The nearest train and bus station is located in Pwllheli, which is about 4 miles from the park. To plan your train journey to and from Hafan y Mor, please search using the official National Rail Enquiries online planner and timetable. Alternatively, call National Rail Enquiries helpline on 0845 748 4950.

There is also Pen-y-chain train station outside the park, however this is a request stop only and is a 15-20 minute walk to the park down a lane with no vehicle access for taxis, therefore we recommend travelling into Pwllheli.
