Really enjoyed this place last time i visited. £129 on some weekdays otherwise £229 at weekend. Not worth that
Bring your own step ladders to dismount
The place is a dump.
Not the best park. Discount all the same for those that like the place
yes sorry you beat me to it..save moneys or safety
This is not a freebie
Thye've run the same promo for at least the last 5 years :)
Grandparents weekend? Is this even a thing?
What an awful experience. I would hope they were just ignorant people. In any case, your son obviously has had more love given to him than they have received. All the best.
We forgot my son's charitable ticket. They all came with a serial number on, so I rang my husband and asked for the number. He sent me a photo of the ticket, but they told me they couldn't accept the serial number or photo as proof, as we could have forged it or kept it for the next charitable event to gain free access. I showed them communications between the charity and myself. They basically said no ticket no entry. So my husband drove 40 minutes to bring the ticket to us. While we were waiting they were sniggering at my autistic son. I would have left except my then 14 year old son with the mental age of a 3 year old, would have been devastated, as he had been looking forward to it so much. It was my fault in the first place, but they we're so nasty to us. We had to wait at the turnstile for an hour while they ridiculed my son. I rang head office while waiting, by the time the correct person got back to me, we had already gone inside as my husband had come with the tickets. Head office said all we needed to do was provide the serial number and we could have gone in. They apologised and said they would have a word with the staff. However the damage was already done and I would never go back. 😥
The Jeremy Kyle log flume is my favourite ride
They did a similar event for special needs a few years ago. We were treated so appallingly that I wouldn't go back if you paid me!
Been to matlock bath gullivers for 2 years on the trot, very small queues if any, on both occasions we went on all the rides,YES ALL THE RIDES and some rides twice, staff friendly, it does need a lick of paint but kids wont notice and as an adult i prefer not to stand in a queue for 30 mins for a 5 min ride, plus its a lot cheaper than drayton manor, legoland, etc
Not sure what you expect for £10 a head? we definitely have our money's worth every time we go, beats paying at least double that & queueing all day. Been to 2 of their parks now & stayed in one of their 'hotels' & for the little uns I can't fault them really other than a little bit of paint work needed here & there
My kids love the Dinosaur Park in Milton Keynes. I wouldn't rush back to Gulivers Land for the reasons mentioned above.
It's a theme park and the theme is poverty.
40 years since they repaired anything, or gave any of the rides a lick of paint. Wouldn’t go back if they paid me £40
You could always buy a personalized card that I make. :D :D https://folksy.com/shops/Handmade4Ewe
What a lovely post op.
This is what I’ll be buying. Far better value.
Also banham zoo in Norfolk and Africa alive in Suffolk are free for dads (y)
That's cos she doesn't know who the bloke next to her is.
How do you get this deal
yup still valid
They have extended the deadline to midnight Tuesday 1st May
One thing to remember about reviews is they are written by adults and not the kids. Yes it's dated and the staff aren't great, but my 6 year old had a great time! Definitely worth it for a day out
Every theme park in the UK has lots of negative reviews on the various review sites whether they're complaining about the price of food, attitude of staff, the weather, excessive queues, rides breaking down or wasps. Maybe a combo of those. I've learned that people that have something to complain about tend to post reviews, a good many less post the reviews when they have a good time. I saw the negative reviews on there. Decided to ignore them and take the kids. Went last year, we had fun. Would probably visit again. Rather than rely upon the views of random supposed visitors on the internet, it's surely best to visit yourself with an open mind and obtain your own experience and opinion. At least once, anyway. Who knows, you may be surprised.. :D
Not really worth any more than £11 - I went last year for £9 and still felt ripped off! The food (and the hygiene) is vile, the rides are either closed or should be closed (the wooden ones give you splinters, they're filthy etc) and the staff try their best but ugh the place is a total dump and it's sad to see. I will never go back.
Such a shame to see the bad reviews, and to hear that the place isn’t being maintained as it should- I took my kids here over summers for a good 10 years. The planting was always lovely and all areas maintained when I was going there. To be fair, as this park caters for children from toddler age, I think the park expects people to bring their own packed lunches. We always did. Hence the lack of catering choices and availability, and the many picnicking areas provided. One of my kids was always little, so we had the pushchair anyway. I’d say that the Antelope is an old fashioned style wooden rollercoaster and getting slung about is what you’d expect, and they are bob on with safety, warnings, checking height etc. We always tried to get there early as they do close promptly. 5pm I think? Oh, and the entrance area will have people getting tall kids out of the pushchair to stand against the measuring point. Not fair if your kids are tall, as they’ll be tall enough that you had to pay, but actually too young to go on many rides, but hey, how else can they manage it? And it’ll be one summer that your little one loses out on a few rides, so who cares? We had such great times there, I do hope they spruce the place up. Good to know that the safety is still good, and like I said, the catering has never been up to much, as most people bring their own.
We went last year and it really is as bad as the Trip Advisor reviews. Yes they are cheaper tickets than usual, but I wouldn’t consider them good value from what I saw last year.
Wish I'd have been aware of this last week, just took my young 'un on Saturday to the Warrington one and thought it was alright myself. Was a lot bigger than I'd expected, didn't get chance to get round the full lot, mind you my son loved some of the rides so much he insisted on going on twice.
It’s Warrington But there are other locations but I don’t know if they are doing to offer too
It's called picking your battles and knowing when to be offended and when you shouldn't. I don't really fancy spending my entire life being shocked and offended by everything that doesn't tally up to my political and social ideals, so i choose to care about the ones which are actually affecting peoples lifes. "as a man i'm massively affected and upset by the fact that a woman on mothers day has been allowed entry to a £20 low grade theme park" - said noone, ever.
Some people believe equality law should be obeyed. It seems you believe in discrimination.
yawn, go get offended somewhere else. how do you get by in life? these sort of offers have been going on for years. why is it only now that a select few people are getting offended by things. I mean, sure, yes there are inequalities which are massively problematic in this world such as the ways we deal with anything sexual in society and law. but kicking up a fuss about a mother, on mothers day, having free entry of about £20 value, for something she is likely not to be actually going on many of the rides anyway, is frankly, stupid.
It is not difficult to decide whether to give free entry to one sex alone is sexist!
The Matlock bath one is on a hill side and it really wears you down getting around it. Kids enjoyed it though.
Cannt get the ACE50 to work, there is no apply code button?
Aww this is lovely (y)
Hi where do you place this code. I have done so in the sports club box as I do not see an alternative for discount codes and it has not taken the discount off. Many thanks.
Nice first post, OP. Thanks. Shame only that the offer didn't extend into half term.
It's worth a try I guess?. Being an incredibly young parent, to then be a grandparent at the ripe old age of only 30!, has to count for something, somewhere ... lol.
I'd wager that, being grandparents and all, they will be... (annoyed)
Some grandparents are only 30 yr old these days, wonder if they will be let in for free
The parks are a bit tired nowadays but my girls (6&8) love it there, been to MK loads (local one) and stayed at Matlock in the new pirate themed rooms with clubcard points earlier in the summer which was excellent. We rarely pay full price, they usually have 3 or 4 offers on over the season & you can sometimes buy cheap return tickets in the park
MK one is great for 6 years plus, a bit restrictive for younger ones and the more adventurous 12 year olds may find it a bit bland. But for the money, even full price, still pretty good value.
Theme parks on weekends is like water and oil, for me.
Was there last week at Matlock, a good day out but the place hasn't been modernised, it's like going back to the 80's. Could do with some serious investment. I paid the £19.95 on the door but £12.50 is about what I'd pay to go again.
Don't forget your inhaler if you go to the one in Matlock.....it can be hard work on those hills.
Is the ticket for the entrance or everything included? Heat added before
Yep working for me make sure your dates fall within range and code in capitals
voucher doesnt apply - any1 got this to work? followed it through just full price
OMG! how did I not see that lol. Sorry. Heat added
ah, it seems they've got different ticket types depending on whether it's weekend or not, good to know. Thanks.
Booked thanks OP!
£10 each, great deal. Thanks
example date above, don't know why its just certain dates
Is it expired as it shows £16.95 each on 23 July?
Do you think you all actually have to do the run?!
Thanks OP, ordered.
