HERE’S your chance to get your hands on the hottest ticket in town.

The Gazette has teamed up with Merlin Entertainments to offer the Big Ticket – a single pass to get you into each of Merlin’s top attractions.

And it’s a snip, at just £20.

The Big Ticket gives residents the chance to visit seven of the biggest and best attractions in Blackpool for just one price.

Whether you want to marvel at creatures in the Sea Life Centre, rub shoulders with celebrities in Madame Tussauds or dance in the famous Tower Ballroom, the Big Ticket has something for everyone.

The pass will also give visitors entry to the four other popular attractions within The Tower including the Tower Eye, Tower Dungeon, Tower Circus, and Jungle Jims.

Iain Hawkins, head of Merlin Entertainments’ Blackpool Cluster, said: “We are all really excited about the Blackpool Big Ticket launch with The Gazette.

“What better way to launch this very special offer for the people of Blackpool than with Blackpool’s newspaper?

“We hope this partnership proves to be a huge success and residents of Blackpool take up the offer and get to enjoy all the attractions at such a great price.”

To claim your Big Ticket, simply collect three out of the six tokens printed daily in The Gazette this week – the second one is on Page 14 (left) today.

Then take them to any of anyMerlin Entertainments attractions in Blackpool this weekend to claim your £20 pass, saving you up to £99.20 on individual ticket prices and £25 on the regular Big Ticket price.

And as another Gazette exclusive, Merlin is gifting two extra free tickets with every Big Ticket purchased to Blackpool’s funniest attraction, the Blackpool Tower Dungeon.

Gazette editor Jon Rhodes said: “Local residents have for many years been asking for something which gives them discounted entry to places such as The Tower and the Sea Life centre and so I’m delighted Merlin, through The Gazette, has come up with this fantastic offer.”
