    Agree with Fantasy Island, that should be in the top 10, great park for all the family, and just seems to get better each year.

    May look at getting a job there when it opens, considering that it's not too far from me. :)

    There's a photo on their Facebook page:

    Didn't realise it's right next to Rother Valley Country Park. Good to see a bit of disused land around Sheffield (of which there is a lot) being turned into something a bit nicer.

    So this source had all the permissions to fly over private land and in that area?

    Looking at the source article, this has been taken by 'The Flying Photographer', a professional drone footage company. As the Gulliver's logo is used in the video, it would appear this is marketing commissioned by the company themselves.

    Is it me, or does this look more like an abandoned park, than one under construction?

    Don't forget it's still just under a year until opening, so still a lot of time to get finished! Makes sense to get the hardware in while they've got the space then add greenery etc afterwards. You're never going to see masses of theming, but with landscaping it'll probably all settle in nicely by opening.

    Well, it is in the early stages. ;)
    I'm thinking of applying for a ride op job when applications open as I'll finally have a theme park close to me. :)

    I think it's the total lack of any sign of construction equipment that does it.

    Does look a tad quiet :p. I'm guessing they took this over the bank holiday with no one on site, hence the lack of people around. Video from Facebook is in better quality for anyone interested:
