  • I was looking for somewhere local 'ish' to take my grandchildren during the Easter break. They are 13 and 11 years old and the last time they went to Wicksteed they were much much younger. I opted to ...  more »
  • I walked to Wicksteed with my young nieces and nephews and it was a nice morning although we didn't go on any of the rides or anything. We visit here quite often and the kids always want to go on thin...  more »
  • Went there today and several of the rides are closed down, buildings burnt down, very disappointing. Only the good old train is still running without failure. Thought they could have got everything up...  more »
  • We went in Autumn half term. There was a cheapish deal but some of the attractions were not working. The kids loved it but from an Adult point of view there was not a huge number of attractions and I could imagine the queues would be horrendous in peak season. The well advertised zip wire was not working and we were shocked to find it cost an extra £6 ish on top of a wristband. This is not mentioned on their website as far as I can see. Ending on a positive. It was nice to be able to park right by the rides so we could eat a packed lunch easily. Also the grounds look great.
  • Don't let the out of date rides and poor service by school kids put you off, this place is actually loads of fun! When you go on a ride like nemesis at Thorpe Park you kind of know your not in any real danger so as thrilling as it is you kind if feel safe. With this place though there were several rides where I thought I might actually die, it was exhilarating! Been a couple of times now, would recommend
  • Been coming here since I was a child. Great place. Lovely park, train ride a must. Slightly tired in parts but doesn't detract from the charm
  • I've loved Wicksteed Park since I was young and my kids now love it too. It's always a great day out and it's not outrageously priced too. These days there's a great variety of attractions as well as some of my favourites from when I was growing up. And the playground has been expanded recently with new climbing equipment and more seating space. There's a good selection os resonably-priced food. To be honest, we've never had a bad day at Wicksteed and it's perfect for families with young children.
  • Amazing park! It has many rides for younger children and for older children. I think The Rides are amazing particularly the log flume and the Big rollercoaster. It contains lots of animals including Mia cats, goats, sheep , cows and even more! The management is very good , all the rides are fun and very safe. This is great for a family day out!
