If you are looking for somewhere to whisk the kids away for the day to keep them entertained this could just be the place that you need.

Gulliver’s Valley Theme Park and Resort in Rotherham opened for the first time in July 2020 after it was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic.

The theme park has been made especially with kids in mind with a wide range of rides for them to try.

The site also has a variety of themed accommodation and caravans for you to book to extend your stay.

And since the site opened last year Gulliver’s Valley has received scores of “excellent” reviews on TripAdvisor from those impressed by their visit.

One even said that it was the “best day out for children”.



Fun times at Gulliver’s Valley

One impressed reviewer said: “The place was amazing for our two children (5 years and 19 months).

“We were there for the firework spectacular and the kids even managed to keep awake until the fireworks. Queues were manageable for rides and our daughter loved the Ferris Wheel – Jake (manning this ride) always had a smile and made an effort to interact with her which was lovely.

“The staff work really hard and make such an effort to make the day fun. The only let down is the quality of the food and speed of service.”

Another happy customer said: “We really enjoyed our stay, children under 12 will love it, there is a lot to do.

“We had children aged 7, 9 and 11 and they all enjoyed it.

“The accommodation was modern, very clean, warm and good. We stayed at the Lost Kingdom, you get a brunch bag for breakfast which was fine or you can buy hot breakfast in the cafe.

“We visited the restaurant at night and the food was fair, alcohol expensive.

“There was entertainment which was good and you could use crazy golf/softplay or watch a movie, then do it all again next day.

“I would suggest doing the rapid ride last as you get very wet ( good job I had a change of clothes/shoes).



Gulliver’s Valley Resort in Rotherham

“If you want big thrill rides and such go to Alton towers and Chessington but for good family kids fun there is so much variety; bouncy castle, rick climbing, roller skating all inside and various outside.”

Another added: “Gullivers truly is one of the best days out for children under 13, we just can’t get enough and always come back, every time we’ve stayed or spent the day we’ve always had a memorable and special experience, the staff are fantastic with the children, always happy and smiling!

“We came to the summer finale last weekend and I wasn’t expecting much in terms of the firework display but it was out of this world, it was so well organised, we stood in Lost World to watch the display and on the way out a lovely worker called Lindsey (she was dressed as Mario) let my children go on the ride she was operating one last time before it closed at 9pm, my kids was ecstatic and it just ended the night so nicely!

“We love Gullivers and are already looking to book our Christmas experience!”

Gulliver’s Valley Theme Park Resort has over 150 excellent reviews on Tripadvisor as well as 50 very good.
