It is the summer school holidays which for a lot of mums and dads with young kids means spinning plates, balancing work and children. Keeping young children entertained is not an easy task on the best of days… but keeping them entertained for 6 weeks… well that just seems impossible.
We decided to book a few days at theme parks to give us something to look forward to during the break. One of the places we booked was Gulliver’s world. We decided to bring you an exclusive Gulliver’s world review to see if it the theme park for you before you part with your hard earned money.
Gulliver’s World Resort – Where is it based?
Gulliver’s world Warrington is located near the big Ikea in Warrington.
There was free parking available.
Is Gulliver’s World theme park suitable for younger children?
All the rides have height restrictions which help you determine if the child needs to be riding with an adult. My son is 5 years old and was just under the 110cm by about 1cm mark which was a little frustrating initially but then we found that there were still lots of rides in the park for him to have fun on.
For small tots under 60cm there are 12 rides available.
For young kids under 90cm there are 21 rides available
For children under 110cm there are 25 rides to enjoy
Food at Gulliver’s World Resort
For families it can be expensive to feed all your children at theme parks, I didn’t think the price was too bad for food. We ate at Gully’s grill and we opted for hot burgers and chips and hot dog and chips for George, both came with a drink and it cost £20.00. I did see people with picnics which could be a good option if you are trying to save some money.
There are lockers that you can hire for the day so if you have a lot of stuff to carry round, it might be an idea to get a locker to store your lunch/items so you don’t have to carry them round all day.
Toilets and baby changing and baby feeding rooms
It was nice to see clean toilets and changing facilities. These looked like they were being checked regulary which was good to see.
As a pregnant mum who hasn’t had the vaccines, I must admit I am a little nervous about venturing out to busy places, i was on the lookout for anti bacterial and although there were stations many i tried were empty and there wasn’t hand gel readily available after each ride.
I did luckily bring my own hand gel and we used the lot between us during the day. I did also noticed that when i purchased an ice cream cone it was served to me in bare hands, I know I am being over cautious but decided to throw the rest cone away just incase.
The Rides at the Theme Park
We chose to go to the park on a Wednesday at the beginning of the summer holidays and it wasn’t busy at all. Apparently it is best to avoid peak times and weekends if you can as it is less busy then.
The friendly staff are not currently giving out maps due to covid but you can find maps around the park, we later found out that you can get maps on your phone via the app which was useful and saves a lot of time.
I was impressed by the size of the park, there was so much to do for kids and this is definitely a great theme park to take toddlers and kids to as there really is so much fun to be had.
The rides George went on in the park were;
Aline Log Flume
Tree Top Swings
Dino Safari Tours
Sky tours obersevation tower
The Incubation Unit
Mad Hatter Tea Party
Fire Brigade Ride
Bikky bob’s bi planes
George’s Favourite Ride
George loved Apache falls the best, it was a really hot day so he really enjoyed the water rides as they cooled him down.
George’s least favourite ride
George really didn’t like the look of the pirate ship and didn’t want to go on it, so much so we had a minor kick off about the Pirate ship but we managed to make friends after about 5 minutes.
The Splash Zone
We did keep seeing signs for the splash zone but this was not open and looks like it is separate to the main theme park.
Our Summary of this theme park
We do think this think park is perfect for parents with little children, there is plenty of rides for all ages, the food was reasonably priced for a theme park. The staff were helpful.
We had a brilliant time with George and we are really to bring you our honest review, we hope it is helpful. You can watch our video to see the full experience below.
