After reading some pretty poor reviews, we were unsure whether to go or not, but we are so glad we did!! Our 3 year old had a wonderful time going on all the rides several times (and so did I), we went on the train that takes you all around the park, go karts, and the rowing boats also. The... More

Great day for the kids although the payment rides can be a bit expensive although there are plenty free structures. The grounds are ideal for exploring with lakes and gardens. Hope for good weather and round off the day with a nice ice cream.

We live locally and buy both the parking for the year and annual passes for wristbands for the kids. Our children are 3 and 5 years old and there is so much for them to do here. It does not need to be expensive - the park are very tolerant of picnickers and the sand pit by the lake and... More

We were a bit uncertain about going to Wicksteed park after reading bad reviews.. Really glad we decided to go!! My husband, myself, little boy and girl aged 4 and 18months had a brilliant day out. We spent all day there and took a picnic to have on their lovely grounds. It's perfect for little ones with the rides.. There... More

We spent today there (Sun 17/08/14) and made the best of a bad job to salvage a reasonable day out. I first visited Wicksteed Park in the late `60`s as a kid and have visited every 7 or 8 years since and can honestly say little has changed bar the odd lick of paint here and there. My last visit...

Decided to take my three year old and 9 month old on their first camping trip. As we live locally we thought this would be ideal. Quite expensive for a pitch with no electric points but I suppose as this includes parking it isn't too bad. Easy to check in. The actual camp site is huge. You can choose where... More

Had a lovely day yesterday with my 2 children age 7 and 12, exchanged £18 worth of Tesco clubcard vouchers for 80 tickets (value £64.00), parking cost only £6.00 all day which I think is good value considering the price to park in some towns and cities all day, took a picnic so zero spend on food, the only other...

We visited on Friday 15th August 2014 & hadn't been to Wicksteed Park for about 35 years I guess & just before we went we read a review on this site from somebody who had been on the 14.08.14....& IF we had relied on that review we wouldn't have gone.....but we went all the same & we had a great...

Once you get your head round the fact that essentially this is a free park (£6 to park all day) and you can pay as little or as much as you like- actually the park represents good value. We picnicked, played on the free swings and slides, played crazy golf, and went on the Astroglide. Yes, parts are tired, yes... More
