Mayhem at Wicksteed continues to grow massively year on year, which is why this year for the first time we're going to have to use parking marshals to keep everything in check.

We'll have these available on the day, but to make everything much smoother please do prepare by printing out the below image to put on your dashboard when parked.

Parking fees of 6 a day still do apply when you're parked lakeside, the park has ANPR cameras and they do issue tickets if you don't pay. Unfortunately this is something we have zero control over.

It is incredibly easy to pay for parking via the Ring Go app, or you can visit the kiosk at the top of the hill by the main car park
