Lightwater Valley Theme Park

Escape to Lightwater Valley!

Escape to Lightwater Valley and discover the excitement of five unique attractions set amidst 175 acres of glorious North Yorkshire countryside, along with thrilling seasonal events that are guaranteed to keep the whole family coming back for more.

Take on a day out packed with thrills, chills and adventure in Lightwater Valley Theme Park, choose to run wild on the UK's largest Angry Birds Activity Park or head to the Lightwater Falconry Centre to see over 50 amazing birds, mammals and reptiles and watch spectacular daily flying shows. With over 40 rides and attractions for thrill seekers of all ages, Lightwater Valley Theme Park is bursting with mini, mega and ultimate adventures for the whole family.

For our mini adventurers, jump aboard one of our Eagle's Creek Farm tractors for a fun and entertaining journey around our farm, or enjoy sliding and hanging around in our new soft play centre & Café.

For our mega adventurers, shoot the raging water of the Wild River Rapids, brave the terrifying Falls of Terror or climb aboard The Flying Cutlass for some tummy tickling pirate fun. 

Ultimate adventures are for anyone with the nerves to face up to the challenge! Suitable for guests from nine years old upwards and over 1.2 metres in height. Start your ultimate adventure by taking to the skies on the Skyrider.

Climb aboard, if you dare, The Black Pearl and feel the momentum build as she gets ready to rotate you 360 degrees through the air. Feel the tight grip of The Eagle’s Claw as it provides an insanely extreme experience before ascending to the tree tops on The Twister.

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.

Finally venture below ground into the world of Raptor Attack’s abandoned mineshaft which offers a completely immersive, underground experience, widely regarded as one of the best dark rides in the United Kingdom.

Lightwater Valley is a full day adventure for the whole family; we offer great value for money and you'll even find FREE parking!
