Wicksteed Park is a fun-filled family theme park and country park located in beautiful Northamptonshire natural surroundings on the outskirts of Kettering.
The Fairground area features many rides which are great fun for kids and will keep them occupied all day long. Here you’ll find Clarence the Coaster, a clown-shaped cart that.
Twists, turns and dropps at a decent pace, familiarizing kids with the thrills of riding roller coasters.
There are lots of other classic fairground rides, including cups & saucers, a pirate ship, and of course dodgems, giving you room to escape to the other Wicksteed Park: an English Heritage Grade II Listed Park and Garden.
Follow the nature trail that was shaped there and spot ducks, geese and peafowls, and mink, foxes and squirrels.
Or if that’s too placid for your tastes, why not go to The Arena and enjoy the roller coaster that thrills adults too?
Or get on the log flume ride or race with the kids in twin-seater racing cars! Or just sit back as the kids wear themselves out in the playground, which features slides, swings, see-saws and climbing frames from the famous Wicksteed company!
