The award-winning family of Seasider buses will be springing back into action and on the roads in Skegness from Monday 26th March 2018.
Rocky, Rolly, Milly, Salty, Pierre, Sandy, Shelly and Candy have been resting through the winter season and are now ready to help make more special holiday memories this year. This season each of the Seasiders will have a regular driver and they will work together as a team to look after you everytime you travel.
Passengers can collect a badge on each of the Seasiders and once all eight are collected they will be entered into an end of season draw.
Marking the return of the loveable holiday vehicles, Stagecoach East Midlands will be holding a day of family fun at the Tower Esplanade on Thursday 12th April from 11am – 3pm. All are welcome to come along, join in the fun and be the first to hear an exciting new announcement on the day.
There will be magic shows, live music and games with the chance to spin the wheel of fortune. There will be prizes and booklets packed with timetable information and money off vouchers to local attractions including 20% off admission to Hardy’s Animal Farm.
New for this season, customers will be able to enjoy a 20% discount on ‘ride all day wristbands’, at the hugely popular attraction Fantasy Island - simply present a valid Stagecoach bus ticket on entry.Michelle Hargreaves, Stagecoach East Midlands Managing Director, said: “We are excited about the return of the Seasiders and their appearance is a sure sign that summer is just around the corner”.
“We know from customer feedback that our Seasiders help make happy holiday memories for our visitors especially the children.”
“We continue to support tourism along the East Coast and have some very exciting news to announce, so come on down to the Tower Esplanade on 12th April to find out more!”
