Ok if you like this type of thing!

The park facilities are ok, but the car park is expensive and the staff in general are rude. Food is not their forte

There were no really good rides but the whole place was just a bit of fun. The amount of activities and rides were fun and the sweet shop was pretty good.

Stayed here in July 2015 for my first camping trip with my son. We had a brilliant time and will definitely visit again. Camping - we got there after 5:30 so could pick any available pitch that we wanted. The pitch was really spacious with freshly mowed grass and it was perfectly level. There were bins for rubbish and hot... More

This is great place for a day out or just a scenic walk. Lots of free activities for the children, loads to see and do. Food is basic and limited with length question and slow service, I suggest you take a picnic for maximum enjoyment

Wicksteed park is great there is so much to there and you can have a great time without spending a fortune. A walk round the lake is really nice waving to the train passengers as they go past. A play in the sand pit or in the park stop and have a picnic these are just a few ways to... More

I used to come here as a child, and took my two children there one 3 and other 10 years old. My eldest son couldn't go on some rides as I couldn't accompany him due to my youngest son not being able to go on. After paying for their wrist bands they ended spending more time In the park area... More

Visited this park with my daughter and grad daughter aged 6 and found it suited us perfectly. Ample car parking very close to entrance which you pay for on the way out. Our little one was kept entertained all day with plenty of rides including roller coaster, parachutes, dodgems, go karts, play area's, crazy golf, carousel, bird aviary, slides, 2... More

This park isn't really worth the money that you pay to get in. The only good thing really about Wickstead is the fireworks, they was really good when I went to see them.

The food was of reasonable quality but very expensive . The most expensive item was the wristbands for the rides as two of us were sharing our time... More

I've been to Wickstead Park for many years, but this weekend was the first time we've taken our toddler and planned to buy tickets for her, but we didn't realise under 90cm are FREE and there's around 6 rides for under 90cm! What we love the most about Wicksteed Park is the pricing, you can have a free day (well... More
