The rides and attractions supply endless amounts of fun for all the family, from granny and grandpa watching the mini adventurers squeal with excitement as they run around the Eagle’s Creek Farm to the whole family taking a trip on the Lightwater Express Train! There’s something to give all the family enjoyment.
The Ultimate is a ride that we are extremely proud to have at Lightwater Valley! It is the longest roller coaster in Europe and signature to this Yorkshire theme park. In many amusement parks there are rides that may be over before you’ve even realised you’ve got on the ride, after you’ve waited in line for quite a while. You won’t get that from The Ultimate. This ride stretches out over a thrilling 1.5 miles, reaching hills of 102ft and 107ft, giving you awesome views of the Yorkshire theme park whilst experiencing epic amounts of anticipation and airtime! The first half of the ride is the smoothest, building anticipation as you ride and then BANG - the second half takes your carriage hurtling through the deepest and darkest areas of forest that surround the amusement park.
Lightwater Valley wouldn’t live up to its name if it wasn’t a little wet ‘n’ wild at times too! The Wild River Rapids take you up an elevated 40ft climb before you come pinning and swirling over the water as you enter the last drop, causing a splash that just falls short of getting you wet. The Falls of Terror offers three giant water slides, giving you the choice of which route you’d like to take. Slide one is a steep drop, delivering a solid amount of airtime and lasting five seconds. Slide two is fairly similar to the first, however you will be released down a small drop before flattening straight to then drop again – perfect for those plucking up courage for slide one! Slide three is the longest and wettest of all three, taking you through a dark tunnel with sudden corners and drops before complete airtime at the end.
Along with the amazing rides, we have an endless amount of other attractions on offer at our Yorkshire theme park, including the Jurassic Park adventure golf. With just a club and a small white ball for protection, you’ll suddenly be thrown into a world where dinosaurs and men are together. The T-Rex and other fierce raptors have inhabited this 18-hole golf course and it’s your challenge to navigate your way through it!
