Spend a day at the “family sized theme park” with over 40 rides and attractions for fun-lovers and thrill-seekers of all ages. Lightwater Valley Theme Park contains all this in 175 acres of exhilarating and heart racing adventures!

Make it out of the darkly mysterious subterranean world of Raptor Attack, reach jaw dropping heights on Whirlwind and go forth into the world of Skeleton Cove! Brave the Black Pearl and embark on a 360 degree voyage into the skies. In the heart of Skeleton Cove you can do little to avoid the calling of the Black Pearl as it swings fearlessly into the sky, don your eye patch and secure your bandana as you prepare to set sail!

Home to Europe’s longest rollercoaster – The Ultimate and many other innovative and entertaining rides suitable for a range of ages, Lightwater Valley is sure to provide you with a day of non-stop fun and entertainment.

With three main sections to the park: Jaw Droppers, Whipper Snappers, and Nippers aimed at relative age groups, it is easy to find something for everyone. Lightwater Valley also has places to eat, special events and a bird of prey centre. Your day planned for you, all you need to do is turn up and enjoy!
