Spend time with your young children at Gulliver's Kingdom, an amusement park located on a steep wooded hill, with many rides nestled amongst the trees. While waiting in line for rides, enjoy the view of Starkholmes and the Heights of Abraham. However, take note of the workout the hilly grounds will require, as it may not be suitable to the mobility-impaired. However, it is possible to catch the chairlift to the top of the hill and work your way down. Plan my Matlock trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
Gulliver's Kingdom Reviews
We've been here a few times and always have a great day out, staff always helpful and friendly. Plenty of places to grab something to eat or drink and rides for everyone. We will return:) more »
I took my 2 Grandchildren aged 8 and 11 and there was plenty for both of them to do Given the time of the year(Nov) not all the restaurants were open which is a shame but understand that business... more »
This theme park is fantastic for families with young children. I have a 7 and 11 year old and they were able to go on all the rides. The prices for food and drinks when compared to other theme parks is actually quite good. The staff were very friendly and helpful. As for the atmosphere, as people here were all families with young children, parents and grandparents (didn't see any teenagers or groups of young adults) it was really nice and pleasant. If you have a young family I can't recommend Gulliver's enough
Lot of parking spaces from top to bottom. Staff were outside to help everyone to park. Opening time was 10:30 and we reached there 10:28 , there were 500+ people already inside the kingdom. There was not a single ride where people were not waiting. Queues were everywhere. There are lot of hills and sharp turn. Parents with kids in push chairs must bring energy drinks with them to walk around. Welfare facilities are everywhere from top to bottom. Which is very good thing. There were some rides which were not in use or no one there to operate them. Overall all of us enjoyed it. Staff was amazing and helpful:)
