We visited Wicksteed park this week for the Illuminations and they really were beautiful and it felt quite magical.
The price includes unlimited entry onto the Carousel, Astroslide, Tree Top Walk, Cups and Saucers, Aviary and the vintage roundabout for toddlers. It also includes a show as storytellers tell magical tales (We didn't do this bit).
We were there for about 2 hours as our children went on the rides available multiple times and they loved it. However I do feel the ticket price is slightly expensive and they should maybe introduce a family ticket or cheaper entry for children next year. The park was very quiet and I wonder if the ticket price has put some people off. It really is lovely though and we had a great time as a treat for the kids pre Christmas.
For the parents just note the Tree Top Walk is not a leisurely stroll but an obstacle course which my kids loved but was a little tricky for me with my handbag and being 5 foot 7!
