Summer of Fun at Lightwater Valley

Make the most of your summer at Lightwater Valley’s summer of fun. ​​​​​​With over 40 rides and attractions for the whole family to enjoy, you’ll find mega adventures around every corner at Lightwater Valley Family Adventure Park. We offer fun for all the family, with new rides and attractions making their debut this summer, including our brand-new interactive arcade with state-of-the-art virtual reality, and our entrancing Hall of Mirrors, a wacky room of distortions that will have the whole family giggling all day.

Enjoy some classic fun with the timeless appeal of the Dodgems or a nostalgic spin on our Waltzer, Thunderdome.

Visit our Skeleton Cove and sail away on the high seas on the Flying Cutlass and Pirate Swinger.

If you dream of visiting Africa, explore our Go Safari area. Step aboard the Savanna Express on a sightseeing journey through the African wilderness. Leap for joy on Kangaroo Jump before flying high on Elephant Flight and the Monkey Drop rides.

As well as new rides, there’s all the park’s young family favourites including Little Dipper, Carousel, Skyrider, the Lady Bird rollercoaster, Splash Falls and many more.

For a relaxing afternoon, take a stroll through our Discovery Woods, spotting all manner of forest friends and creepy crawlies, chill out and enjoy a coffee on one of our cloud-gazing sky chairs, before heading to our marvellous mud kitchen to cook up some ‘wholesome’ recipes.

Throughout the summer we will even have daily park entertainment featuring our fabulous entertainment team and our new, friendly, resident dragon Ebor! Enjoy Character meet and greets with your favourite dinosaurs Jester and Jasmine, UV disco-dancing, face-painting, and circus skills workshops.

All the fun of the park is bound to build an appetite and with new food offerings across the entire park, as well as our brand-new Big Fish Trading Co, serving the best fish and chips in Yorkshire, there’s something to suit all tastes.

With a pay once, ride-all-day ticket and free onsite parking, Lightwater Valley really is a great value family day out!
