Lightwater Valley

Lightwater Valley in North Yorkshire, England, is a family friendly theme park that is widely famed and best known for being home to 'The Ultimate' - the longest rollercoaster in the whole of Europe. Construction of 'The Ultimate' began in 1990, and was finished in 1991, when it was then opened to the public. The rollercoaster now measures over 1.5 miles in length and cost £5.2 million to build!

Lightwater Valley theme park actually began life as a small farm attraction, which was founded by a man named Robert Staveley. It wasn't until 1987, when the 'Rat Ride' attraction (which is now the 'Raptor Attack' Ultimate Adventure) was built on the site, that the park was officially named 'Lightwater Valley'. The park now features a multitude of more than 40 other attractions, including -

  • Twister - A wild and spinning mouse-themed rollercoaster that reaches speeds of 29 mph,
  • The Black Pearl - An inverting ship in Skeleton Cove,
  • Ladybird - A family roller coaster that reaches speeds of 20 mph,
  • Skyrider - A jazz-themed Chair-O-plane ride,
  • Spinning teacups, and

Half a million people visit Lightwater Valley every year, and interestingly, admission prices are based on height rather than age, and range from £5 (under 1m) - £28 (over 1.3m). Family tickets start at £69.
