Existing Problems

Always comparing and competing with Disney, Merlin had been checking out some of Disney’s websites and found one that Clarity had built. They contacted Clarity, wanting us to build them some marketing website as well. They wanted a site where users could buy season passes to multiple venues and save money.

Our Solutions

Clarity ended up designing and building three websites for Merlin Entertainment over the course of two years and are in discussions to build another. Merlindeals.com is just one of the many sites we’ve built for Merlin. It allows users to sign up for newsletters, pre-purchase season and discounted tickets and much more.
