To celebrate International Wheelchair Day on March 1st, Merlin Entertainments is offering free entry across all of their Australian and New Zealand attractions to mobility device users and their carers.

With free entry on Monday February 28, wheelchair/mobility device users and their carers can enjoy a range of experiences from meeting celebrities at Madame Tussauds Sydney to getting face-to-fin with grey nurse sharks and penguins at SEA LIFE aquariums in Sydney, Melbourne, Sunshine Coast and Auckland.

Or why not meet koalas, crocodiles and kangaroos at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, check out Australia’s only LEGOLAND Discovery Centre® in Melbourne or experience the stunning treetop walks or ziplines at Illawarra Fly and Otway Fly!

“Over recent years we have been working hard to make all of Merlin Entertainments’ attractions as accessible as possible as we believe everyone, including people with diverse needs, should be able to enjoy magical moments. Some of the ways we strive to achieve this is by ensuring our staff have the right training, by continuing to look at how we provide the most accessible environments and making information available to guests ahead of their visit to help with planning,” said Ian Wood, Regional Director of Merlin Entertainments Australia and New Zealand.

Ian continued, “To recognise International Wheelchair Day we are delighted to offer free entry to mobility device users and their carers to the ten wonderful attractions we have around Australia and New Zealand”.

International Wheelchair Day takes place on March 1st annually and is an important day for wheelchair users to celebrate the positive impact a wheelchair has on their lives. It is also a chance to celebrate the great work of the many millions of people who provide wheelchairs or support and care for wheelchair users, all of whom make the world a better and more accessible place for people with mobility issues.

As all of Merlin Entertainments ANZ attractions will be closed on March 1st, the attractions will be celebrating with free entry on February 28th.

To claim free entry on February 28th guests simply need to enter the code “IntWheelchairDay22” in the ‘promotional code’ section when checking out of purchasing tickets online.
