On Wednesday (9th November) lucky school children from a number of local primary schools presented their ideas for a new theme park site for Gulliver’s Theme Parks.

The national theme park group has just purchased a 333-acre site in Yorkshire and challenged the children to plan and design a brand new theme park for the development.

As part of the challenge they had to market and promote the new theme park, including a launch event and a grand opening, with the products and services staying in line with existing Gulliver’s locations.

The children were asked to be as creative as they liked and to create a prototype to display at the grand final which took place at Gulliver’s World in Warrington.

Eccleston Lane Ends Primary were crowned the winners for their idea, with Willow Tree Primary School and Wargrave Church of England Primary School coming in second and third.

Longton Lane, St Anne’s Sutton, Sutton Oak, Queen’s Park, St Austin’s, Oakdene, Holy Cross, St James and Carr Mill schools also took place in the challenge.

Natalie Armstrong, Primary Education Co-ordinator at St Helens Chamber, commented: “The Primary Enterprise and Innovation Challenge is designed to teach pupils team working, problems solving and decision making; skills that will benefit them throughout their education and future careers.

“All the schools taking part had a fantastic day and we would like to thank Gulliver’s World for making the day possible.”
