New £37 million theme park plan for Rotherham

AN AMBITIOUS £37 million theme park and holiday resort will be built next to Rother Valley Country Park, under new plans

Gulliver’s will bring up to 255 jobs at the Pithouse West site, which will include an adventure centre, ecology and education centre, glamping, woodland lodges and a hotel.

The firm already runs three parks in Matlock Bath, Warrington and Milton Keynes aimed at families with children aged two to 13.

Managing director Julie Dalton said: “We’re really excited at the prospect of realising our dreams at Gulliver’s Valley and reproducing all the best elements of our existing three UK parks together on one site.

“We want to create a ‘whole park feel’, with nature trails, walks, outdoor gyms and woodland runs which can be used by our guests and the local community alike.

“Plus, of course, the family theme park hub, which will be developed and operated in line with our core value of providing great value family days out that are big on fun.”

The 333-acre site was previously proposed for the failed YES! Project and Visions of China ventures.
