The Kent based seaside amusement park will begin to let guests into the attraction for free starting next week.

Since re-opening in June last year, Dreamland has required guests to pay an entry fee in order to gain access to the park, with guests then entitled to unlimited rides.

Starting on Saturday 18 June however, the current admission policy is set to be abolished as Dreamland prepares to celebrate it’s first birthday since the re-imagined park launched.

Guests under 1.25 meters will be able to purchase their own wristband to ensure the highest value for money, with the new wristbands starting from £8 online.


Eddie Kemsley, CEO of Dreamland Margate, commented: “To celebrate our first birthday, we’re delighted to announce that Dreamland will become free to enter from 18th June 2016.

“Dreamland’s management team made this decision after all pricing models were trialed during 2015. We received lots of customer feedback on pricing and we listened. We believe this new pricing model is the best option and will please as many of our guests as possible.

“It’s been an exceptional year since Dreamland’s magical opening evening party on the 19th June 2015. Dreamland has helped Margate to make headlines over and over again and the town is buzzing with new energy and visitors.

“Many Margate businesses have told us that they have flourished within the past year and the best is yet to come, as with our new pricing policy, Dreamland will be accessible to all. We firmly believe Margate and Dreamland is all set to have its most phenomenal year yet.”

Dreamland’s birthday celebrations will take place next Saturday and Sunday, with the park hosting a ‘Soundclash’ to mark the occasion.
