Wicksteed Park, the home of children’s play, has announced a price freeze to mark the opening of all rides and attractions for the 2013 season. Another reason why Wicksteed Park is great place for a family day out the kids.
Founded by Charles Wicksteed, the inventor of the children’s playground, the Kettering park provides a fantastic mix of thrills and excitement in a stunning setting. It has also been given a Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor - the world’s largest travel site - for being one of the UK’s top places to go for a day out based on visitor ratings. So mum’s and dad’s, remember to add Wicksteed Park to your list this summer when planning your family day out the kids.
All rides and attractions opened for the 2013 season on March 28 – and the park has announced that 2013 prices will be held at 2012 rates. The popular visitor attraction combines rollercoasters, rides and attractions with the tranquility and relaxation of an historic grade II country park and a nature reserve run by the Wildlife Trust.
The park’s famous Edwardian Pavilion which has hosted dances, parties and shows for generations of Northamptonshire families, has also been restored to its former glory thanks to a major refurbishment to mark its 90th anniversary.
The park boasts some of the oldest thrill rides in the UK, including the water chute, which first opened in 1926 – and the Wicksteed Park railway, which takes visitors around the park and is the most popular narrow-gauge railway in the country.
There are also top quality camping facilities and the opportunity to stay in a luxury lodge in the heart of 147 acres of stunning parkland.
