Wicksteed Park – the home of children’s play – has announced a host of new attractions for 2015, marking the completion of a £3million lake restoration project.
They include the Wicky's Play Factory indoor interactive play area, a thrilling new drop slide, a walk-through aviary, a sand and water play area and new lakeside features made out of natural materials to encourage children to climb and explore.
The park has also just launched one of the UK’s tallest and longest zip wires – RUSH.
RUSH has a top speed of 40mph, is as high as a six-storey building and 310 metres long and comprises three zip wires to allow families and friends to take the plunge together.
Wicksteed Park, near Kettering, combines 147 acres of beautiful parkland with attractions such as rollercoasters and rides to ensure a great day out or leisure break for the whole family, no matter what their budget.
Founded by Charles Wicksteed, the inventor of modern day play equipment such as the slide and the swing, the park was part of his vision to inspire and encourage play as part of families' health and well-being.
We are giving away four sets of family day passes, including car parking.
The entrance to Wicksteed Park is off Barton Road, Kettering, Northamptonshire, NN15 6NJ – minutes away from the A14, with easy access to the M1 and A1.
