I used to go to Wicksteed Park as a child and we returned this summer as a family with a five and three year old. It was quite pricey to get wristbands but we decided it would be easier and therefore more enjoyable. We arrived...More

A great day out for a family with younger children. I would say its best for 10 years and under due to the size of the rides. The prices for the wristbands were great value and the parking was really easy too. The only reason...More

Thinking it would be ok to spend 3-4 hours, we went bit late. But this place has so much to offer. We were 3 families with four 6yo, but not was it fun. Will visit back soon.
