Fun Passes, Activity Bundles and day passes

Fun Passes
Fun Passes are also known as your ‘Entertainment pass’ and allow access to our FunWorks entertainment complex. With these you can use the pools, leisure and entertainment facilities, which includes bars, restaurants, ShowBars and some sports and water activities. Some activities are subject to an extra charge.
Fun Passes are included in the total cost of your holiday when booked directly on our website, through a travel agent or via our Contact Centre. You will be given a pass for each guest listed on your booking. If you have booked your holiday privately with an owner, you will need to purchase our Fun passes to access all the facilities. You can do this by calling the park direct on 01723 515 155.
Activity Bundles
If you enjoy doing lots of activities and planning your holiday before you arrive (and saving money), then our Activity Bundle is just the thing for you.
When you buy an Activity Bundle, you get a bundle of either 12 or 24 passes that you can redeem online before you get here against a whole range of activities - which not only means that you get here first to secure your place on the activity, but you also get to do the activities you want to do at a discounted price. You can book a maximum of 48 passes prior to arrival or book activities as you go on park. However, these are subject to availability, so we recommend booking in advance.

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 12 or 24 bundle depending on your preference. And with our online booking system open up until midnight the day before you arrive, even if you book at the very last minute, you can still make the most of these great savings.
After you have made your booking and purchased your Activity Bundle, simply visit www.myhavenholiday.com where you can see all of the activities and times available to book. Some activities may require more than one pass; you can see a full list here Activities do vary by park.

Don't worry if you don't buy your Activity Bundle before you get on holiday - you can still buy your activities on park at our normal price, subject to availability
