Accounts for Weavers Close filed at Companies House also showed pre-tax profit was up to £556,045, compared with £474,779 the year before.
In their report accompanying the accounts, the directors stated: “Theme park turnover increased due to improved weather conditions during the holiday periods. However, Splashzone takings were down as a result of closures during the year for refurbishments.” Ray Phillips opened Gulliver’s Kingdom in Derbyshire in 1978, with sister sites in Warrington and Milton Keynes opening in 1989 and 1999 respectively. The business has also begun work on a site in Rotherham that is set to open in 2020.
