We recently visited Gullivers Land and Dinosaur Park in Mitlon Keynes. It is really well signed from the M1 junction 14 and it has lots of its own free parking.
Gullivers is split into two main sites. The main theme park and a separate park which encompasses a dinosaur and farm park, Nerf battle zone and a splash park zone.
We started our visit at the dinosaur and farm park as it opens slightly earlier than the main park. You enter through a dinosaur themed shop and are immediately greeted by large animatronic dinosaurs including a moving model of what looks like the Indominus Rex from Jurrasic World complete with sound effects.
In this area there is a dig site where you can hunt for fossils and bones and a small learning room which has various fossils you can look at and study and different types of rocks and materials too.
There are so many moving dinosaurs as you go around the park and there are also lots of static models. Les and the boys went up the observation tower near the entrance of the park to get their bearings.
There are walkways past some of the models and play areas dotted throughout including climbing walls and nature areas (complete with moving T-rex) and ride on toys for younger visitors.
The reptile house had various lizards, snakes, turtles etc in it to view with lots of information about them too and there is a Jungle Cruise boat ride that takes you past some more models and the guide for it was really funny so we would highly recommend it.
As you go through the dinosaur park it leads you to the farm park which had various enclosures with your typical farm animals in such as goats, turkeys, cows, sheep, rabbits etc. It also had some small play areas as you walked round and a tractor themed ride at the end of the area. There was an indoor soft play area here too for younger children.
After we had finished at the dinosaur park we headed to the main Gullivers Land site which is just next door.
Gullivers is a theme park as such but is no where near the scale or budget of places like Legoland or Alton Towers. It claims its age range is roughly 3 - 11 years old and I would say that is about right. There are rides for very young toddlers up to roller coasters etc for older children.
There was easily enough to keep you busy all day long and a good variety of activities to do. It was also good that if you were to visit on a very busy day there are lots of play areas dotted around between the popular rides.
We also found a fab indoor role play area for toddlers, that although it was far too young for my boys looked really good for younger children and had some really hands on fun things to do in it.
Gullivers has lots of refreshment kiosks, shops and a restaurant dotted throughout the park and loads of toilets which was really handy as you didn't have to walk far to find the nearest one.
If you have children younger than teenagers Gullivers is a good full day out and we'd recommend it.
