All Gulliver's Discounts, Offers and Sale - August 2018
The warrington site is run down, tacky as hell and needs lots of TLC to get it looking great however my kids (6 and 4) loved it. They talk about it more than CBeebies land and DLP. Kids don't notice the aesthetics, they just enjoy the rides and attractions and this place has loads for the young ones to do. I always felt safe on the rides. We took a picnic so I can't comment on the catering.
Not a bad offer, not great mind. Paid £139 last year for the safari tent, a different 'resort i agree' but from what I've seen I'm not sure this is worth £40 more :-/
Thanks for sharing op, good saving. But I would suggest people have a look first on Trip advisor before booking https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attraction_Review-g187055-d659402-Reviews-or10-Gulliver_s_Land-Milton_Keynes_Buckinghamshire_England.html Gulliver world is very run down and not fit for purpose and has lots of bad reviews on trip advisor. This one may be better. Gullivers world Gullivers land appears to be better rated
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
I can’t buy shame it’s says unavailable
I thought I had missed this one. It says extended to Monday due to popular demand.
Does Tickets purchased for a specific date have to be used on that date? Or can you go a different day?
Thanks, sorry it wasn't a pedantic effort at pointing out a mistake, certainly more of a grumble, and yes shame on them! Lol. It's a brilliant park regardless but that Dino park really is awesome. I'll be looking out for the little bird reduced overnight cabin stays again :-)
@FTOdude170 Looking again, I don't think it does, bit naughty of them to have that pic on the link, I've deleted from the OP, thanks for bringing it to my attention
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)
I note that there must be one child in the group of 4 or 6. However, on the basis that we have a child under 90cm (free) and wanted to go with parents and grandparents, would this work for us 5?
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.
Thanks very much for these. How do you find the deals?
Essex Motorshow - Fathers Day Motorfest & Family Fun Day 18th June Barleylands Farm Park - Dads Go Free Sunday 18th Marsh Farm - Fathers Go Free with full paying child 17th / 18th June Lee Valley Farms - Dads Go Free 18th June
Does anyone know if there is any program in Essex taking part in the "dads go free"?
updated with more in 1st post including Knowsley Safari Park
Think most dads would be happier with chips and a pint in Matlock Bath ;)
This deal is misleading. The £21.95 tickets on the Gullivers Website relate to a special event over May Half term that includes food, however I contacted Little Bird who confirmed that this deal is for general admission only not the special event tickets. General Admission tickets on the Gullivers Website (Warrington) are only £16.95 each therefore only a £1.95 saving per person.
Obvious question is matlock bath likely to be busy in the weekdays for half term Anyone who's been any tips Thanks
