There is an on air competition to this... on the mornings of Saturday 04/07 and Sunday 05/07.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS for “The Sun Superdays Alton Towers Resort On Air Competitions – Magic Weekend Breakfast” (the “Competition”).


These terms and conditions (the “Specific Terms”) for the Competition should be read alongside  our general competition terms and conditions at: (the “General Terms”) which will also apply to this Competition. Where there is any conflict between these Specific Terms and the General Terms, the Specific Terms shall prevail.






1.ENTRY ROUTES AND COSTS      Entries are restricted to 1 per person.


Entry to the Competition is available via the following routes:


(B)         Phone by calling 03 444 777 888 when instructed by the Magic Radio presenter on air on Saturday 4th July 2020 and Sunday 5th July 2020 between 6am and 10am, which is a national rate telephone number. Please note calls may cost more if calling from a mobile.




There will be one on air winner on Saturday 4th July 2020 and there will be one on air winner on Sunday 5th July 2020.


On Saturday two callers will be taken to air and the presenters will play the game with caller 1 first. The presenter will ask caller 1 if the rides that they are saying are real or fake ride names. They will be given 3 names. The presenter will then ask caller 2 if the rides they are saying are real or fake ride names. They will be given 3 names. The caller who gets the most correct answers wins the prize. If there is a tie and they both get the same amount of correct answers, then it will go to a tie-break round. Both callers will be asked the same question before the game on air is played so the presenter will then have their answers, and if it needs to go to a tie-break, the presenter already has their answers the callers gave earlier to ensure no one can cheat. It will be the caller with the closest answer that will be the winner for that day.


On Sunday it will be exactly the same mechanic as the Saturday mechanic.



3. ENTRY PERIOD            

Entries must be submitted during the following entry period:


The presenter will ask for people to call in who wish to play from 6am (the “Start Time”) to 10am (“End Time”) on Saturday 4th July and Sunday 5th July 2020.


Calls received before the Start Time or after the End Time will be invalid.

Please be nice to all MoneySavers. That’s the forum motto. Remember, the prime aim is to help provide info and resources.
