24th August 2012 Dear Mr Sadler, As you are aware, here at Gulliver’s we continually strive to make every part of our visitors day out as fun filled and safe as reasonably practicable. Visitor feedback is an integral part of this quest. A family visit is something we take extremely seriously and I can only apologise if you feel on this occasion we have not fully met with your expectations. We have never or indeed would ever deliberately try to cause embarrassment or... (read more)

Visited Easter Sunday with my husband and our 2 year old, what an awful place, over tired, the floor of the food hall was sticky as you walked over it and hygiene looked questionable, so we didn't eat there. No one was enforcing the smoke free zones, so we didn't go on a lot of rides because there were big families standing by the entrances chain smoking. No reference to it being Easter either, might have been fun to have a bunny bouncing around?!? I wouldn't go there again if someone paid me! (read more)

Saw a leaflet advertising Christmas event at Gullivers Mk and was sucked in. As in the area on a weekend break thought we would take our 18mth old son for a fun introduction to Christmas for him. On arrival we thought the park looked very dated and drab (very much unlike the leaflet/photos/website advertising it- dont be fooled by this if you plan to go). It was good that our son could go on some of the rides due to his size and he seemed to enjoy them, though as the adults we could see how... (read more)

I appreciate most people only review a place if they were unhappy or had a bad experience but I want to give an honest opinion of our day. We were sold on Gullivers by the website and televsion ads but I should have read the review websites. As a family with two small children we visit many places and because of the lower admission charge we didnt expect Thorpe Park or Alton Tower style attractions. Saying that, a lot of the rides were so poor. You feel as if its an old park with old... (read more)

Visited Gulliver's on 15th May 2011. Weather quite grey and overcast with spots of rain.
We were recommended to Gullivers because it catered for younger children. Looking at it from my daughters perspective she had a great day and really pushed herself to try new things. There was plenty to do to fill the day and the staff I found were good, helpful and encouraging in the most part. Some of the features were a bit dated but I think that added to the experience. Certainly, my daughter didn't... (read more)

After a previous day at Thorpe Park, I decided to take my 2 year old daughter somewhere a little bit more towards her age range. Although she is under 90cm, it looked like there would be a lot more stuff she could do there than at thorpe park. Gulliver's Land being only just down the road from me , it wasn't too much of a hassle to get there , even though it was a bank holiday monday there didn't seem to be too much of a problem queuing.
First half of the day was OK - plenty of things for DD... (read more)

I tock my family for a day out at Gullivers Milton Keynes, when we returned to our car we were presented with a plastic bin bag and told that are car had been broken into. Our car was 1 of 7 cars that were broken in to that afternoon. My biggest issue was that the staff at Gulliver Milton Keynes notified the police at 3pm, and we did not did not find out until 5.30 when the parked closed, we were told that they did not know who owned the cars.

Gullivers Land Milton Keynes
Having read through many negative reviews about Gullivers Land in Milton Keynes, we decided to take our 4 year old son today (mothers day) partly because they were running a "mothers go free" promotion and partly because it's not too far away; they park also seemed better suited to young children than many of the bigger well known ones.
Well I must say we had a fantastic day, we arrived at 11am and found there was no queue to get in as such. The one thing I was... (read more)

Very poor start to holiday week - went there and was told that a couple of the rides were closed hence price reduction. On entry all the large rides were closed, when we complained management were arrogant that they had a good service. Poor day - kids upset but management did not care. Really concerned that only duty manager on at weekend with no way to escalate or deal with our compliant. Ask for a call today but no call received.
I would avoid it is a run down park with no real customer... (read more)

The worst childrens attraction I have ever been to. Would not recommend at all. From the moment we arrived, litterally at the main entrance we had problems gaining entry, no apologise were made for making us wait with children in the cold for 20minutes whilst they sorted themselve out. None of the staff knew where special christmas attractions we're taking place sening us in the wrong direction.

Although we had been put off by the bad reviews, on our second visit to Milton Keynes we decided we should give Gullivers a go. I'm so glad we did it was a great day out, the kids loved the rides, the food was good and reasonably priced and I didnt notice if the place was dirty or not because we were having too much fun. Please do not be put off by the bad reviews. (read more)

Such a disappointment. Do the owners of this place think that people will keep going back when they can't be bothered to address the standard things like: no litter, happy staff, clean toilets, good food, general maintenance,etc. Although some of the rides were ok, generally the overall experience was poor. A theme park is supposed to be fun and you should walk away with a smile on your face. Hopefully the owners do care and will start to put things right. (read more)

I read all the reviews and was put off going to Gullivers Milton Keynes for about a year because of all the negative ones. I then spoke to a couple of mums who said it was really nice for the younger children. And as long as my DD enjoyed it, I would be more than happy. In the end, I thought I would go and see it for MYSELF. I picked the first weekend in October when the weather was predicted as a mini heatwave and I would not have the bustle of the school holidays. It was a pleasant day... (read more)

This place had so much potential but appears to be struggling and I will be surprised if this is open for much longer.
We visited during term time in June. We are a three hour drive from the site so booked a travel lodge. We then found out it wasn't open on Mondays and Tuesdays in June but they were so late advertising opening times on their website that we didn't know.
The place looked so beautiful and our morning was fantastic. Only annoyance in the morning was the ferris wheel which... (read more)

Despite reading some frankly shocking comments on here, I decided to give Gullivers Land a try. Our party included 4 adults and 4 children (aged 2.5, 4, 4, and 7 - the youngest of which is under the 90cm height restriction and therefore enjoys free entry). Everyone had a fantastic day - the park is not about to fall down, there are so many rides that we didn't even manage to try them all!This is the only slightly negative point, and the reason for my rating not being 5 stars, the rides are...

This is the 1st time I've ever left a theme park before closing time. Visited with my 8 year old daughter and even she wanted to leave. The Python roller coaster was ok as was the ride where you drop vertically several times and you get a soaking on the log flume. Other than that the rides were very tame and some of them were absolutely atrocious. The pirate ship wasn't working and a couple of other attractions broke down while we were queueing for them. The flight simulator was atrocious,... (read more)

I feel that Gullivers Land has been harshly reviewed by a number of people. This was my first visit there with my nephews aged 10 and 7. Yes this Theme Park is aimed for families with children under 12yrs. Ok some areas are looking a bit tired but like all parks maitanance is ongoing. £13.80 for a day out. I added it up and it worked out at less than 40p a ride!!! No long queues. Longest we waited was 5 mins. The kids had a fantastic day and loved the log flume and coasters.

Too much money for what you get,some of the rides were good but the play areas( inside & out) were rubbish.
We took a picnic so dont know what food was like.
My boys are 8 & 6 the rides were ok for them, but everything else was too young.
The park is alot smaller than it looks on the map.
It cost us 53 pounds for a family ticket. (rip off)..
The staff were very nice and they all spoke and asked if we were having a good day..
Would never go again and would not recommend it to anyone, unless... (read more)

In our opinion the Gullivers Land queue system at the entrance was disorganised and no information about prices was displayed or explained at the ticket booth. We ended up paying for something we did not use. The park overall was rundown and on the day of our visit toilet paper missing in the toilets that we used. Some of the staff were disinterested. A few of the rides were ok but the monorail did not feel safe. If we had known how disapointing the day was going to be we would have gone... (read more)

Although overall Gullivers Land, Milton Keynes was "Good", there were just a few niggles.

We had a brilliant day at Gullivers Land, Milton Keynes. We had been advised to take a picnic as prices were pretty steep for burgers etc so we didn't really look at the prices, but the teas, ice creams etc were very reasonable. Also, the gift shop was not too expensive. There are plenty of picnic areas around the site. The rides are ideally catered for between 3 and 8 year olds and our 4 year old went on virtually every one there. We preferred this Gullivers to the one in Matlock which was... (read more)

Very very disappointed Grandparents. Vist Gullivers every year in July or August, but this year found the whole place dirty, in need of a lick of paint and repair with at least five of the rides out of use. So not value for money at all. A couple of the rides looked a little dangerous with start buttons missing where little fingers started to poke around....Health and Safety would have had a field day.

Gullivers Land is not a cheap day out but you could stay all day long and go on the rides as many times as you like. The food was very bad and would strongly advise taking a picnic. There are seats outside where you could eat it. Rides are good for toddlers and kids up to about 8, but older than this would probably get bored.
The downside is the park is very dirty and smelly in places. Felt like I needed a good wash when I got home! Although the website says its ok for bad weather as many... (read more)

Gullivers land has to be the worst attraction I have ever been to. It cost just under £50 to get into which is terrible for what's on offer, poor rides that even my 4 year old boy found rubbish, the only one's that were any good were too big for him. The staff are so unpleasant and rude, most of them can't even answer your questions. The food was a disgrace!

When you first walk in to Gullivers Land it looks really good, we went on the train first - that takes you all the way around the park - this was a big mistake as you just see the back of all the rides and lots of bushes and rubbish! It is very untidy and needs a lot of TLC. The rides are okay but don't last long at all, and most of them are not really worth queuing up for.

The toilets were nice and clean which is always my big thing when I am taking my little man out. He is only 3 and small for his age but there were only 2 rides he could not go on so he was totally in his element, which makes the day out so much more enjoyable for both of you.

I went to Gullivers park in the summer holidays.(2007)
It was the weekend and it didn't take long to get in the park itself. The first thing me and my family did is we went on this train. The people that drive it were a bit grumpy and it does take a couple of minutes until you get on. The train went round the whole park and each carriage could hold four people so my whole family fitted in. We were still a bit squished because the carriage is only about 1m wide!

Gullivers Land is a firm favorite of ours. We came across this place by accident and have recommended to all our friends with young'uns. The park is designed for 1-6 year olds, with enough rides to tire the kids out for the journey home. You pay by height - over 90cm you pay, under you don't, which can make this park a cheap option compared to the other places Taking a picnic is not a problem, so I cannot say about the food Overall we've been there 4 times and enjoyed every visit (read more)
