See inside £37m Gulliver's Valley theme park set to open next month a short drive away

A whole new theme park is set to open just a short drive away from northern Lincolnshire this summer. An eye-catching photo has been released of the GBP37m Gulliver's Valley showing the incredible transformation that has taken place over the past two years to get the park ready. When it opens, the resort at Rother Valley Country Park, between Doncaster and Sheffield, is being built in five phases and will have more than 70 rides and attractions including an area honouring South Yorkshire legends the Chuckle Brothers.

While no date has been confirmed for the grand opening, it is hoped it will welcome its first visitors before the end of July.

Highlights will include 'Blast Arena', an indoor play area, and an indoor climbing centre. There will also be a Lost Jurassic World which will be home to all kinds of dinosaurs. It will also feature rides including three-slide water attraction T-Rex Tower, as well as Pterosaur Turmoil and Lost World River Tour.

Meanwhile, Toyland will have diggers children can control along with a ferris wheel, fire-truck ride and a wing ride called Rocking Tug. Those looking for an American experience can head to Wild Western World, where they'll find Apache Falls and a selection of themed shops. There are also a number of indoor attractions including climbing walls, a giant bouncy castle, a mini driving school and a vintage carousel.

Two of Rotherham's most famous sons will be honoured too with a special tribute to the Chuckle Brothers.

Guests will be able to walk through Chuckle Street and explore the legacy of the TV and panto icons. Accommodation will be available when the park opens, ranging from glamping to pirate and princess-themed rooms.    Originally, it was hoped the new Gulliver's Valley attraction would open in the spring but the coronavirus pandemic had a significant impact on those plans.

Back in May, managing director Julie Dalton said: "We're now working hard to create different ways of delivering great experiences that fully adhere to social distancing guidelines, as well as building on the measures we have already developed, so we can continue to provide safe and enjoyable family days out.

"Once these are in place, and we have further advice from the Government around the reopening of theme parks like ours, we will be in a better position to set a new date."

With the go-ahead now given for theme parks to open with social-distancing measures from July 4, the stage is now set for Gulliver's Valley to welcome families this summer.

It will be biggest of Gulliver's resorts, joining Gulliver's Land in Milton Keynes, Gulliver's Kingdom in Matlock Bath, and Gulliver's World in Cheshire.
