Celebrate May Half Term At Lightwater Valley
Lightwater Valley in Ripon will be open daily this May Half Term giving families the chance to enjoy a well-deserved fun day out from Saturday 29th May – Sunday 6th June 2021.
In line with government guidelines Lightwater Valley’s indoor play areas including Jester’s Jungle Fun will reopen alongside the other 30 rides and attractions ideally suited for families with children under 12 years of age.
“We are really looking forward to being able to safely reopen our indoor soft play areas and seeing smiling faces come rain or shine!
We will also be able to welcome visitors back indoors to eat lunch in our onsite cafes” said manager Colin Bowes.
Among the new attractions for the 2021 season is Go Safari.
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. Other new additions to the park include the Hot Air Balloons.
Also new this year is the Treetop Trails, formerly treetops nets. This much-loved attraction provides a net walk through the tree canopy high above the park and will now be included as part of the admission price.
As well as new rides, there’s all of the park’s young family favourites including Little Dipper, Carousel, Skyrider, the Lady Bird rollercoaster, Splash Falls and many more.
Take a peaceful glide around the lake on board a Swan Boat and see the park from a whole other angle on the Lightwater Valley Express train.
Get behind the wheel and practice your steering on the Vintage Car ride and flap your arms as you fly through the sky on Pirate Swinger.
In order to manage numbers, and ensure social distancing guidelines are maintained, the North Yorkshire theme park will initially be operating with reduced capacity and all visitors will need to pre-book tickets online.
Staff will also be continuing to carry out a series of additional cleaning and hygiene measures on site and queue markers will be in place to help visitors keep a safe distance apart.
A full list of safety measures and guidelines are available to view on the Lightwater Valley website, along with a summary of which rides will be open.
