Things to do at Lightwater Valley Theme Park review

Lightwater valley is near Ripon in North Yorkshire. It has 35 rides and attractions and is a theme park for all ages. It has a great mix with something to suit all ages.

Make sure you pick up a map so that you can plan your route through the park. Most days there is a cute train running to take you from one area to the other which we loved but it doesn’t take too long to walk around.

There are rides to suit toddlers, younger children right up to teenagers and adults including a big wooden rollercoaster. For an extra £2.50 they have an excellent dinosaur themed 18 hole crazy golf course.

Younger kids will love the carousel, tractor ride, caterpiller coaster, pirate ship and Lightwater express. Plus swan boats, wave rider, pirate swinger and wild river rapids. There’s also a series of toddler rides. Other attractions include an indoor play area plus a big soft play section. There’s an excellent Angry birds themed adventure playground. They even have a small petting farm.

Older kids and adults will love the swings, eagle’s claw, wooden rollercoaster, raptor attack indoor coaster (my then 5 year olds favourite). Plus the black pearl, trauma tower and a spinning waltzer.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places now require you to pre-book online in advance.
