Day Out With The Kids teams with attractions giant

Online family days out specialist Day Out With The Kids has signed a deal to promote Merlin Entertainments’ attractions across the UK.

The partnership will focus on attractions such as Alton Towers Resort, Warwick Castle, Legoland Windsor Resort (pictured) and Thorpe Park Resort, helping them to reach and attract families with younger children.

Merlin has also joined a new Day Out With The Kids membership scheme to offer family-friendly incentives and offers.

Simon Applebaum, Day Out With The Kids managing director, said: “Merlin Entertainments is one of the biggest names in the sector and with a great range of rides and attractions specifically targeted to a young family audience, it’s the ideal fit for our core audience.

“Merlin Entertainments has been a key partner of the wider Attraction World Group for a number of years and we’re proud to have extended that partnership to also include the Day Out With The Kids brand.”

Dominique Sidley, Merlin Entertainments global trade strategy director, added: “Merlin’s amazing portfolio of attractions have been entertaining and delighting families for years and for many their earliest memories of theme parks start with one of our iconic brands.

“This partnership with Day Out with the Kids puts Merlin at the heart of the planning stage for busy parents, hopefully the start of future fantastic family memories.”
