Things to do at Lightwater Valley Theme Park review
Lightwater Valley is near Ripon in North Yorkshire. It has around 35 rides and attractions and is a theme park for younger families (more suited to children age 9 and under). Things have changed around a bit and they are now aiming at younger families.
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.
The theme park will be open for a summer full of fun for young families. With exciting rides and attractions, Lightwater Valley offers families with under 10s an amazing value day out in Yorkshire. Younger family members will love venturing into the brand new Safari Zone and going on a trek through the grasslands on board the Savannah Express, spotting the life-sized animals along the way.
Also, walk through the treetops on our new Treetop Trails adventure. Explore the park from the canopy above and crawl, run or jump along the colourful nets. Head to the Little Dipper and Lady Bird rides for a go on our mini coasters before making a splash on Splash Falls
For an extra £2.50 they have an excellent dinosaur-themed 18 hole crazy golf course.
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 still require you to pre-book online in advance.
