Fun Passes, Activity Bundles and day passes

Fun Passes
Fun Passes allow you access to our entertainment complex. With these you can use the pools, participate in the kids' activities, and use the leisure and entertainment facilities - which includes our bars, restaurants, and some sports and leisure activities. Some activities are subject to an additional cost. Fun Passes are included in the total cost of your holiday when you book directly with us, either on our website or through our contact centre, and when you book through a travel agent. But don't forget, if you are one of our promotional customers, you can add your Fun Passes on My Haven Holiday when you amend your optional extras. You will be given a Fun Pass for each guest listed on your booking. If you have booked your holiday privately with an owner, you will need to purchase a Fun Pass to access all of the facilities - you can do this by calling the park direct on 01984 632423.
Activity Bundles
If you enjoy doing lots of activities and planning your holiday before you arrive, then our Activity Bundle is just the thing for you.
When you buy an Activity Bundle, you get a bundle of either 10 or 20 passes that you can redeem online before you get here against a whole range of activities. Remember, should you need them; you can always book and pay for any extra activities when you're on the park.

If you have already booked a holiday and wish to take advantage of this great offer please click My Account. Once you have logged into your account click on 'view current holiday bookings', select your booking and click on 'add optional extras'. If we still have Activity Bundles available, you can select either a 10 or 20 bundle depending on your preference. Activity Bundles must be purchased at least 7 days before your holiday arrival date. And with our online booking system open up until midnight the day before you arrive, you can book your activities last minute, subject to availability.
