Gulliver’s Theme Park; What Works?

i. Few Queues; the great advantage at Gulliver’s is the lack of queues.  Even on busy days, you tend not to wait longer than 30 minutes for the top thrill rides and substantially less for the younger family rides.

iii. All Weather Attraction; each park has a good range of attractions located undercover so plenty to keep you occupied whatever the weather.

iv. Bolt On Attractionas; plenty of additional attractions now available at each site including Splash Zones, Nerf Zones & Dinosaur/Farm Park & SFEAR.  These work well as a stand alone option or as a bolt-on attraction to extend your day, (look out for discounted combination tickets).

v. No Parking Fees; good news that parking at Gulliver’s remains FREE of charge at all 4 locations.

vi. Cheap Tickets; plenty of promo codes & promotions running throughout the season.
