Event Report: Wicksteed Park

The 30th of July was a great day for the trip! The weather was dry but cloudy, and therefore not too baking hot. The coach trip was only around 40 minutes and very convenient and comfortable.

57 people went on the coach, organised wonderfully by Hayley and Sandy. My 18-month-old was given an absolutely lovely little snack-filled goody bag which entertained her for much of the journey. The older kids got a goody back full of Wicksteed souvenirs once we got there.

It was our first time ever at the park, and my 102cm-tall 4-year-old was very much looking forward to being tall enough to get on the majority of the rides. Having wristbands was really convenient, and my husband and I took turns queuing for the rides with our older child. The little one wasn’t forgotten as there were plenty of things to do, like playing on the free-access playgrounds and the height-inclusive rides like the roundabout and, her favourite, the Wicksteed cars.


The grounds were lovely for strolling around, and there was plenty of space to relax between rides.

All in all it was a lovely day and all four of us had a great family day out! All our thanks to Hayley and Sandy for organising a cracking trip.
