Even though you have to pay for the parking, the playground is free and really great on sunny days, with toilets and snacks available nearby.

I can say it has been the best firework night yet..... Wicksteed really outdone themselves this year and I believe money well spent.. Firstly booking online prior to the event, saved money before the event (Bonus) - As we live in Kettering we walked to the park and met a steady flow of people entering the park.. The music could...

Wicksteed is my local park and it's lovely. There is a lot of space, big fields for ball games and swings and the usual park stuff. In the summer we often enjoy picnics as a family and have a play, go to the car boots and just have a nice time. In the winter it's somewhere to pop for an... More

We decided that all the older young people would visit at night for the ghost train and other attractions so it would be relatively quiet in the daytime so more chance to get on rides quickly.....Our plan worked well, although staff said it is always quiet in Oct and shuts down in Nov, so some rides not working but only...

We visited Tuesday of half term with our grandchildren aged 6 & 4. Unless you just want to use the free play park and walk in the grounds my advice would be not to arrive before 10.30. We arrived at about 10.15 only to find the ticket offices closed and also the cafes. Which meant that when only two opened... More

I grew up in the area so it was nice to see Wicksteed 20 years later, not much has changed! We went to the park on a Sunday afternoon with family in September on a really hot unseasonable day and were all set to go on some rides which closed at 4pm. Perhaps they should have extended the time for... More

OK, so we were lucky with the weather - in t-shirts at the tail end of October - but what a lovely park. We had exchanged Tesco vouchers for 40 ride tokens and they only just lasted our family of 4. Thanks to the gentleman manning one ride (the clown coaster) who stopped it mid ride to let my son... More
