Tick every box at Lightwater Valley: home to an explosion of rides, creatures and play!
They have over 40 attractions all set within 167 acres of gorgeous North Yorkshire countryside. That includes rides to thrill like the underground world of Raptor Attack, Black Pearl or Europe’s longest roller coaster: the aptly named, ‘The Ultimate’! During the summer months make a splash on the Wild River Rapids. Dip and dive across the surface of the water, all before making a 40ft climb and dropping back to earth.
Take things down a notch on a tractor ride around Eagle’s Creek Farm, not forgetting to say hello to lovable KuneKune pigs, Pygmy goats and valley stalwart, Poppy the donkey! You can also set your little mites free in the Angry Birds Activity Park with over 3,000 sq ft of interactive fun. Finish up with a live performance of speed and spectacle at the Falconry Centre. See how these stunning birds are trained and handled, as well introductions to owls, eagles and hawks.
