9 am Day and 9 am Group tickets are valid Mon – Fri from 12 am to 6 am and from 9 am until 6 am the following morning, all day on Sat, Sun and public Holidays. With the day tickets 1 adult and up to 3 children aged 6-14 can travel all day on the same day. Up to 5 persons of any age can travel on the 9am group ticket for a favourable flat price. 

Tip: It is often worth buying the 9am day ticket even if you only travel twice that day, the 9am group ticket is often the best bet even if there are only two of you!
