If we have to contact you will do using the contact details you provided when you purchase your pass.

These terms are integral to each Escapade Pass and are independent of any other contract and cannot be varied.

Purchase and use of an Escapade Pass is in accordance with the regulations of each individual Attraction, copies of which are available on each or can be obtained online at each Attraction website.

Please ensure that you are willing to be bound by these regulations before purchasing your Escapade Pass.

When you place an order for an Escapade Pass on our website our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to accept it and receive payment in full, at which point a contract will come into existence between you and us. We will assign a number to your order and will tell you what it is when we accept your order. It will help us if you can tell us the order number whenever you contact us about your order.

You can contact us within 14 days of entering into this contract (which happens when you purchase your Escapade Pass as described above) to cancel your contract and receive a refund as follows: contact us during the 14 day period with the completed model cancellation form at the end of these Terms or email us during the same period. The Escapade Pass starts immediately after your purchase as requested by you on the website at the time of purchase (by clicking the relevant box just before payment). If you have used your Escapade Pass during the 14-day cancellation period before contacting us to cancel your Pass, you must pay us the amount proportionate to the value of the services supplied before cancellation. We shall be entitled to set off any such payment you are required to make against the amount to be refunded.

At the time of purchase you must upload a clear photograph which must be a true likeness of the named holder. An Escapade Pass will only be valid when it is used and/or presented by the named holder, it displays a clear photograph which must be a true likeness of the named holder, and it is within the Validity Period (as defined in Term 8). Any use or attempted use of an Escapade Pass in breach of these Terms or the relevant Attraction's regulations will result in the Escapade Pass being revoked without a refund and/or compensation.

For the avoidance of doubt, pass sharing is a breach of these Terms and any attempted use of an Escapade Pass by someone other than the photographed and named holder, regardless of the reason, will result in access being refused and the Escapade Pass being revoked without a refund and/or compensation.

Enhanced Pass

Escapade Pass holders have the opportunity to purchase one Enhanced Pass (EP) to accompany their membership.

For example an Enhanced Pass may be purchased by a Grandparent who would accompany their grandchildren to the Park without the parent present.

Only one Enhanced Pass can be purchased per membership and this needs to be arranged through our Contact Centre on 01372 668942. Should the Enhanced Members and Main Adult members wish to visit together, the EP members will have to pay full admission for the day.

For example if you takeout membership on 28th March you would be charged for 4 days remaining in March, plus April’s full month fee, your direct debit would then commence on 28th April for the duration of your pass.

Escapade will only accept one direct debit mandate per family group.

Your first payment will be a prorated amount payable by credit or debit card.
