Theme parks to visit

Here at, we’ve taken a look at some of the lesser-known theme parks around the UK for you to visit this summer.  Maybe there’s one near where you live or will be holidaying?  If so, why not give it a try?

1. M&D’s, Lanarkshire 

If you’re in Scotland, then why not pay a visit to M&D’s?  With over 20 rides and attractions for kids only, there’s also indoor bowling, soft play area, Game Zone as well as bars and restaurants.  Scotland’s only indoor tropical rainforest, Amazonia, is also here – packed with exotic animals, birds and creepy crawlies.   Well worth a visit with your little ones.

2. Blackpool Pleasure Beach 

Blackpool has lots to offer its visitors and the Pleasure Beach has something for everyone to enjoy!  Lots of rides for all the family – visit Nickelodeon Land and join SpongeBob Square Pants, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as well as Chase & Marshall from PAW Patrol!  And if you want to make the most of your visit, why not combine it with a visit to the Blackpool Illuminations which will be switched on on 31st August?  You really can’t afford to miss the fun!

3. Oakwood Theme Park, South Wales 

Oakwood is Wales’ biggest theme park, filled with thrills and excitement for children and adults alike!  Whether you’re looking for an adrenaline-fuelled experience or a magical adventure, Oakwood has plenty of rides – big and small – as well as many different attractions to cater for all ages.

4. Wicksteed Park, Northamptonshire

Combine outdoor fun with Wicky’s indoor play factory for lots of fun for the little ones.    Along with 30 exciting rides and activities, including one of Europe’s longest zip wires, there’s 147 acres of beautiful rolling parkland – just perfect for a game of Frisbee or a big family picnic.  The brand new Treetop Walk is now open as well so there’s plenty to keep everyone busy all day. Plus there’s a campsite too if you fancy staying the night! 

5. Gullivers Land 

With theme parks located in Warrington, Milton Keynes and Matlock Bath, you’re never too far away from all the fun and thrills!  Designed especially for families with younger children, there’s a huge selection of rides and attractions at each theme park dedicated for kids between 2 and 13 years old.  And if you don’t think you’re going to manage it all in one day, there are always short overnight breaks available too!  What are you waiting for?
