Gulliver's Land Review - May 2018 - Kids Stay Too

Gulliver’s Land Review – May 2018

Gulliver's Land - Milton Keynes

Posted by on 10th May 2018

Over the May Day Bank Holiday weekend we visited Gulliver’s Land which is situated in Milton Keynes. This was our first visit and were contemplating on whether to stay overnight to have 2 full days at the park. We decided to see what’s its like and then make a night of it next time.

The theme park is easily accessible by car. It is located very close to junction 14 off the M1 motorway and also not far off the A5. Milton Keynes centre is only a few minutes drive from the theme park for shopping and restaurants. There is free parking outside the main entrance plus additional parking across the road, less than 5 minutes walk away.

The park’s layout is easy to follow. From the main entrance there’s ‘Main Street’ which has a carousel ride and surrounded by shops and information area. You may even bump into some of the park’s mascots, including ‘Gully, the mouse. As you continue into the park towards the centre there is the beautiful ‘Lilliput Castle‘.  From here paths lead to each of the different sections of the park. Inside the castle there are various eating areas serving anything from jacket potatoes, fish and chips to ice-creams and sandwiches. Prices are quite reasonable compared to similar theme park attractions.

There is a train ride that goes around the whole park. Kids will enjoy some of the outdoor play areas which gives parents a chance to sit down for a quick rest. There’s a maze, JCB play zone plus a big indoor area (Gully Town) with many toys, climbing frames, dressing up and pretend shops.

The queues to each ride were quite short, roughly around 5-15 minutes. We encountered a couple of problems with the ‘Twist and Joust’ and the ‘Log Flume’ rides. We waited a while, and then the rides became temporarily out of action, so unfortunately we didn’t get a chance to try them on this occasion. Throughout the day there are mini-shows including a chance to see the mascots and staff do a goodbye show at the end of the day.

The park also features further attractions at an additional cost, that may also be pre-booked. These include a Splash Zone, Nerf Zone and the Dinosaur & Farm Park. Sadly we didn’t have enough time to visit these, so it would definitely be worth having an overnight stay to experience them all.

Spend the night at Gulliver’s

All 3 Theme Parks in the Gulliver’s group offer accommodation for families.

The Theme Parks offer deals on day visits as well as short breaks so always worth occasionally having a look at their websites for their latest updates.
