Take on a day out packed with thrills, chills and adventure in Lightwater Valley Theme Park, choose to run wild on the UK’s largest Angry Birds Activity Park or head to the Lightwater Falconry Centre to see over 35 amazing birds and watch spectacular daily flying shows. With over 40 rides and attractions for thrill seekers of all ages, Lightwater Valley Theme Park is bursting with mini, mega and ultimate adventures for the whole family.

For our mega adventurers, shoot the raging water of the Wild River Rapids, brave the terrifying Falls of Terror or climb aboard The Flying Cutlass for some tummy tickling pirate fun.

For their ultimate adventurers, be thrown in the air in the grip of their Eagle’s Claw and hurtle through some of our deepest, darkest forest aboard Europe’s longest roller coaster – The Ultimate or take a spinning ride above the treetops on Apollo, our new ride for 2016!

Join Lightwater Valley for their crime fighting Superheroes Live! Event in June, or, come along and meet Andy Day, as seen on CBeebies, for dinosaur fun, facts and music at Andy’s Dinosaur Weekend in August or tackle a 160 foot bungee jump in June!
