“Needs a lot of DIY”

Written on: 29/09/2013

I've been going since I was a kid, and to be honest it has gone completely down hill since then. Every time you board one of the few rides they have there, it doesn't feel safe at all. The eating area/fun house smells, and is very unclean and the mechanics are terrible. On the plus side it is still a fun day out for small children, but I would not recommend the park at all. It is a waste of money… Read Full Review

“Needs improvement”

Written on: 08/09/2013

The place is tired, needs a lot of work. Wasps were everywhere, we were informed by staff that there were several nests there. The 2d dinosaur experience was poor, as we were not give any glasses. Food was very poor and flies everywhere in the eating area. Staff looked fed up. Adults and children both pay £20 which is far too expensive. Meal tickets only included one type of ice cream which we could not eat, it was orange and tasted awful. My 4 year old who loves ice cream chucked his… Read Full Review

“FUN FILLED FAMILY DAY!”

Written on: 01/06/2013 by annlynch2013 (1 review written)

We went on June 1st for our little boys 7th birthday, our group was 2 adults and 2 children (4 and 7 yrs old) and we all had an amazing day. Both children were betwen 90-120cm in height so had to be accompanied on most rides which was great as it meant we did lots more together rather than just watching from the sides. Ride ques werent long and we got on lots of things, everything i think and the log flume twice (daddy got wet so we liked that one). We took a picnic but didnt bother eating… Read Full Review

“A FANTASTIC FESTIVE DAY OUT, LOVELY STAFF, DON'T MISS IT”

Written on: 28/11/2011

We had a fantastic family day out. All the staff we met were exceptionally kind, friendly and helpful - they chatted to the children and offered to help in any way they could. I can honestly say I could not fault the staff so don't be put off by the bad reviews on here. There was plenty to do both inside and outdoors for our children(age 1,5 and 6). We loved it and would definitely go back again. We paid for the deal that included lucnh which was better value than buying food inside the park… Read Full Review

“Pleasantly surprised”

Written on: 25/09/2011

We planned to take our kids (girls aged 6 and 9) for a day out as a treat for recent fantastic behaviour during difficult circumstances. We decided to try Gullivers Kingdom Matlock Bath as it is not too far from home (Sheffield) and we hadn't been as a family before. I have to say, we were a little worried on reading some of the reviews here, but we decided that we couldn't face a long journey elsewhere to try another theme park, and that the negative issues raised in some of the reviews… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2011

We took a group of kids to gulivers kingdom in matlock and it was terrible. i myself have been to many theme parks but not to one as bad as this. to get to the car park you have to drive up a steep hill, oncing in side the rides looks okay and queqing is little what was good, the rides attenders where very rude and dirty faced. after every ride i went on i said thank you and showed my respect to be given a dirty look and rudeness, to be honest only one man said thank you and that was the boat… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/08/2011 by will2011 (1 review written)

DO NOT GOP to Gullivers Kingdom if you value your money, time & childrens happiness The park is grubby, run down and badly run and whats worth the staff are so rude, lazy & incompetent I have taken a group of 12 to many theme parks and have never ever been treated so badly by anyone as the staff including the Manager Brandon Neal. The staff refuse to accept any complaint, refuse to give the company head office details, refuse to do anything The staff is SO UNDERSTAFFED that ride times take… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/07/2010

Took our 2 grandkids to Gullivers Kingdom at Matlock Bath. Grandson is 4 and Grand-daughter 1. Had a fantastic time. The reviews are right it is very hilly with some very steep parts but it was well worth it. The views are spectacular from the chair-lifts, the rides are all great for the kids - don't bother if your kids are over 12 as they will feel the rides are too tame. The staff were very helpful and the queues were non existent. The longest wait we had was around 2 minutes. Overall… Read Full Review

Went to gullivers last friday and had a great day out,value for money as it only cost £49.00 for 2 adults and 2 children.It did rain on and off all day but all the rides were still working,all i will say is wear flat shoes as the park is quite spaced out with plenty of slopes to walk up and down.The park is set in a beautiful area and the views are amazing especially when you go on the chair lifts,as for the staff they couldnt of been more helpful or enthusiastic and made such a fuss of my 2… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/07/2010

We visited Gullivers at Matlock Bath with some trepidation,having read the reviews. It turned out to be a wonderful day out, the perfect place to take the grandchildren. Our party included myself (grandad), grandma,father,mother,three children 3years,5years and 7years.It was a beautiful sunny day not too crowded and the staff were very helpful and friendly. It is a bit hilly but that wasn't a problem even though I'm getting on a bit
would recommend it as value for money… Read Full Review

We took our daughter for her 9th birthday with our other 4 kids aged from 2 to 14 & our daughters friend, The weather was lovely which helped but we had a fantastic day out, surrounded by beautiful countryside, yes it is very hilly & not for the elderly or anyone with walking problems but there was a variety of rides which we hardly had to que for at all & plenty of choice for lunch & clean facilities, we took a picnic & were given beakers for our drinks as we had forgotten ours at no cost… Read Full Review

“Went to the park on a bank holiday Monday with 4 and 8...”

Written on: 01/06/2010

Went to the park on a bank holiday Monday with 4 and 8 year olds . Though the park was busy we never really had to wait very long for any of the rides. Park is very hilly and a bit shabby in places, a cople of the rides could do with replacing (they were rubbish) but there was a good general mix for children under 10.

Staff were fine certainly no worse than any at other theme parks we've been to it all depends on your expectations!… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/04/2010 by ianj123 (1 review written)

I dont understand the negative posts on here. There was 10 of us, 6 children aged between 4 and 11 and we all had a great time. Yes it hasnt got the biggest or best rides but we didnt Q for for than 5 mins for anything So we went on every single ride there was and some the kinds went on over 7 times. This park is for children and yes its on a hill but all the kids coped and loved it. Overall a great day out (and for £8.50 each as we used vouchers)you cant go wrong… Read Full Review
