Founded by Charles Wicksteed (the inventor of children's play), Wicksteed Park combines the excitement of rollercoasters, rides, and attractions with the tranquillity of a historic Grade II country park and lake.
With rides ranging from the Dinosaur Valley rollercoaster to the Rocky River Falls log flume, there is plenty to keep the whole family entertained. If you are looking for a more relaxing experience, there is the nature reserve and 147 acres of beautiful parkland.
Wicksteed Park's community, education, and heritage activities promote the precious historic landscape and heritage rides. They also provide new opportunities for communities to engage and participate.
Wicksteed Park also offers a very popular camp site and is host to many private and corporate events, with facilities to hire. Luxurious timber lodges are also available to buy on a peaceful plot.
The Wicksteed Charitable Trust is a registered charity (no. 1142103).
