Lightwater Valley Theme Park

Escape to Lightwater Valley in the heart of North Yorkshire, UK and discover an exciting day out for the whole family.

With over 35 rides and attractions for thrill seekers of all ages, Lightwater Valley Theme Park is bursting with adventures for the whole family.

The Ultimate is Lightwater Valley’s signature ride and provides a thrilling 1.5 mile cocktail of speed, cornering and airtime. Unique amongst modern day attractions, The Ultimate remains the longest roller coaster in Europe with a ride time approaching six minutes.

There is also fantastic family fun rides and attractions; including the Lightwater Express train ride around the park, Eagle’s Creek Farm tractor ride, a selection of fairground and water rides, plus the Adventure Playground and Mini Sand Diggers. Plus don’t forget to visit the indoor Soft Play & Cafe perfect for under 8s to run off some energy while the grownups can take a seat and enjoy a relaxing drink and snack.

Enjoy the wet ‘n’ wild fun on the Wild River Rapids, and swashbuckling adventures aboard speedy Skull Rock and the tummy-tickling Flying Cutlass. Plus jump around on the huge Jumpin’ Jacks bouncy pillow.

If you are looking for the ultimate adventure then take to the skies in the grip of the Eagle’s Claw, venture into the underground world of Raptor Attack, see the park from a whole different viewpoint aboard Black Pearl and then hop on Apollo and take a spinning ride above the tree tops.

Alice in Winterland

Discover a fantastical family-friendly festive trail at Lightwater Valley this Christmas with the enchanting Alice in Winterland (selected dates from Friday 22nd November – Monday 30th December). Embark on a magical journey to meet the Mad Hatter, the Queen of Hearts and, of course, Alice herself on their amazing adventure. Hundreds of giant illuminated sculptures will illustrate stories from Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass.

Discover a giant chess board, watch the Mad Hatter prepare for his crazy tea party, marvel at the four-metre tall Alice lantern and come face to face with the infamous Queen herself. Visitors of all ages can follow the luminous trail and immerse themselves in a glowing garden with massive mushrooms, illuminated tulips and even a flamingo or two as the evening becomes curiouser and curiouser…

Families can also enjoy some traditional fairground fun including a spin on the carousel and take to the night sky on the Skyrider. For little ones the Indoor Play Area and Young Fun Rides will be open, to entertain guests of all ages.
