Lightwater Valley Making Final Preparations Ahead of Re-Opening

Published on

Lightwater Valley is making the final preparations before welcoming visitors back for the first time this year on Saturday, 17th April. 

During lockdown staff have been hard at work creating a series of new features and attractions.

Among the brand new attractions for the 2021 season is Go Safari.

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.

“It’s wonderful to be able to finally start being able to welcome visitors back again and we have put in place a series of new protocols and guidelines to ensure they can have a great day out in a safe and secure outdoor environment,” said manager Colin Bowes.

 “The emphasis is very much on providing a great day out for young families with lots of great new rides and attractions for the under 12s to enjoy,” he added. 

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.

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.
