Who fancies a thrill ride on flying swings? What about meeting modern-day dinosaurs, or simply enjoying a lazy day aboard the Eagle's Creek Farm tractor? Do the lot and loads more at Lightwater Valley.

One of the main reasons families pay a visit to the Valley is for the rides, from the splashtastic Wild River Rapids to the swashbuckling Skull Rock. With over 35 to choose from, we think our favourite might have to be The Ultimate. Super speed and tight corners make it a must for daredevils in training.

What if you’ve come with small kids? There’s more than enough to keep them busy, like the Lightwater Express train, a tractor ride, as well as indoor AND outdoor play areas. If they’re animal lovers though be sure to take them to one of the flying displays or to meet an adorable family of prairie dogs. In fact, with 50 raptors, mammals and reptiles, you’ll need a full day to see every single one!

  • Over 35 raucous rides
  • Play areas and a tractor for littluns
  • Meet all of the animal kingdom, including prairie dogs!
