Frequently Asked Questions

What is a book of supersaver tickets?

Supersaver ticket books come in sheets of 12, with one ticket book being purchased for £9. Each individual ticket has a park value of £1 and can be used on The Needles rides, which means you can make a saving of up to 25%. Supersaver tickets are available between Easter and the end of October each year.

Where and when can supersaver tickets be used?

Supersaver tickets can be used for any ride within The Needles as well as entrance to the glass making and sweet making demonstrations throughout The Needles’ main season.

Can we use Tesco Vouchers at The Needles?

Yes, Tesco vouchers can be used at The Needles and are redeemable against the sale of our supersaver ticket books. The tickets are available between Easter and the end of October each year. These supersaver ticket books come in books of 12 tickets for £9, so if you have a £10 Tesco Day out voucher you can buy one book and one single ticket. No change will be given.

Are dogs allowed within The Needles?

Dogs are permitted onto all external areas of The Needles and onto the beach. They are not permitted in any internal building with the exception of hearing assistance and guide dogs. Dogs must be kept on a lead at all times.

Are Alum Bay sands dyed?

No they are coloured due to the natural mineral content in the sand.

Will the Chairlift be running?

As long as the weather is not too windy the Chairlift operates between Easter and the end of October each year.
