    New attractions for 2021!

    Enjoy an exciting expedition through the NEW Go Safari area! Step aboard the Savannah Express on a journey through the African wilderness. Leap for joy on Kangaroo Jump before flying high on Elephant Flight and the Monkey Drop rides. Then head over for a flight aboard the Hot Air Balloon ride. 

    Also new this year is Treetop Trails, formerly Treetops Nets. This much-loved attraction takes adventurers on a net walk through the tree canopy high above the park, and will now be included as part of the park’s admission price. 

    As well as new rides, come and enjoy Lightwater Valley’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 aboard 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, fly through the sky on Pirate Swinger,and make your own adventures in the indoor and outdoor play areas. 

    There’s so much to choose from, it’s hard to know which ride to run to first! 

    Please check the website for opening times, prices, school holiday entertainment, and Covid-19 FAQs. In order for Lightwater Valley to control capacity to the Park, please pre-book your tickets online in advance of your visit.
