How to: Link your Access Card / Ride Access Pass Registration Number to Merlin Entertainment

It is now possible to link your Access Card or Ride Access Pass registration number to obtain a Ride Access Pass at Merlin Attractions across the UK. This currently includes Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, Chessington World of Adventure, and Legoland Windsor.

Ride Access passes are only for those that qualify for avoiding queues and as such are limited to cardholders who have the Standing and Queueing and Level Access symbols.

How to…

To link your card or registration number simply visit and enter your card details.

Check what you’re entering

It’s really important to add your details EXACTLY as they appear on your card and to make sure there are no spaces after your name. You also need to make sure that the Access Card number is JUST a number – if you have an older card with letters on it ignore the prefix ie #V1234 is just 1234

For registration number holders please ensure you enter your registration number received in your confirmation email and the first and surname of the registration holder EXACTLY as they appear in your confirmation email.

Once linked you’ll be asked a couple more questions and your RAP will be available to collect when you visit and valid for the duration of your Access Card or RAP registration!

Happy riding!!
