Lightwater Valley Gude; Tips & Tricks

i. The Early Bird; generally the park opens about half an hour before the rides so you’ll have time to park up, purchase/collect tickets & find your bearings at the start of the day.  Close to the entrance, you’ll find a select number of rides that open early that gives thrill seekers a chance to undertake Eagles Claw & Skyrider whilst young families can enjoy the Angry Birds Activity Park & a few younger attractions.

ii. Go Go Go! Be ready to access the main park as it opens to the public around 10.30am.  Thrill seekers should make their way straight to the back of the park to tick off a few of the main thrill rides before the queues begin to build.

iii. The Ultimate; did you know you can shave up to a minute off your journey time on The Ultimate if you opt for an afternoon visit for a faster and perhaps choppier ride!

iv. Bird of Prey Displays; look out for the daily flying demonstrations undertaken by Lightwater Valley Falconry for a very close up experience. With a range of birds flying literally centimeters from your head, this is something not to be missed!

v. Angry Birds Activity Park; a great hit with younger children with an extensive array of climbing equipment, musical features, slides and tunnels coupled with fantastic theming throughout the attraction.
