Yorkshire plan to open £37 million theme park


Gulliver’s Theme Park and Resorts is launching its most striving project - Gulliver’s Valley which is situated on 250 acres swathe of land at next to Rother Valley Country Park in Rotherham, South Yorkshire. 

Yorkshire will soon be home to Gulliver’s Theme Park and Resorts new venture- Gulliver’s Valley. The £37 million development has been labelled the company’s “most ambitious project to date”. It is set to open summer of 2020, it will have all the same attraction as Gulliver’s three existing theme park resorts in Warrington, Milton Keynes and Matlock Bath plus some extra additions. The new theme park is set to open in Rother Valley in south Yorkshire, about half an hour’s drive from Sheffield.

The theme park will have over 70 rides and attractions as well as various indoor activities including unique climbing centre, water play zone and Blast Arena. Guests can also expect nature trails, walks and an outdoor gym as well as ‘forest classrooms’ where children can enjoy woodland crafts. There will also be a family-friendly accommodation ranging form glamping to themed rooms such as ‘pirate’ and ‘princess’.

Julie Dalton, the managing director at Gulliver’s Valley explained “We are proud that Gulliver’s remains a family-owned, family-run and family-focussed business. “It’s incredibly important to us to ensure the local community around Gulliver’s Valley will benefit from the new development”.

“We are investing in the local economy through recruitment as close to the theme park resort as we can; so far we have used local businesses where possible and also invited local school children to share their ideas with us about what they want from the new resort on their doorstep”.

“One of our aims is to give families and children quality time and memories, through fresh air and fun activities”.

“I am very pleased to say Gulliver’s Valley Theme Park and Resort will have forest classrooms available in education and ecology centres. “We have also strived to retain and enhance existing woodland, whilst making them accessible to the general public – meaning nature trails, walks, outdoor gyms and the forest will be available to the local community to use, free of charge”.
