After trialling Funtopia’s new Autism Friendly Sessions last year, they received a positively overwhelming response. The 2023 Tour shall now feature an Autism Friendly Session at the start of EVERY Funtopia! The Autism Friendly Sessions take place 10:30am-11:30am daily. Numbers are limited and tickets can be purchased in advance via Eventbrite (

With the ever-increasing costs of living, Funtopia has decided to keep the 2022 ticket prices for this summer: “Providing families with a very reasonably priced day out has always been one of our top priorities. This year we believe that it is even more important to offer all families the opportunity to enjoy a day out together” - Sarah Green, Funtopia Director. “We know how hard it can be for families to afford a day out. Most of the time the costs don’t end at the entrance either, with rides, prize stalls and food sometimes costing more than the entrance fee! Therefore, this year we have decided not to feature any additional pay-per-go rides or game stalls. Once you have paid to enter Funtopia, all the activities are included in the price. For only £10 per child, visitors can enjoy a full day of fun!”.

“We’re pleased to be offering our popular Autism Friendly Sessions at every Funtopia this year”- Sam Harrison, Event Manager. “These sessions are specifically designed to allow children with autism the opportunity to visit Funtopia in a more relaxed and suitable setting. We’ve found that these children can often be forgotten and don’t always get the opportunity to visit events. We hope that they will be popular with the local community”.

Delicious snacks and meals are on offer throughout the day at the Fun-Food Court, which offers good food at a great price! Visitors are also welcome to bring their own food and picnics if they prefer.

All tickets are purchased on the gate (Autism Friendly Sessions can be booked online), there’s no need to pre-book. Sales open at 10am every event day.
