Lightwater Valley opens its doors again this weekend with the announcement of four exciting new attractions along with the visit of children’s TV star Mister Maker this summer.
Set within 175 acres of beautiful North Yorkshire countryside, the family theme park opens on April 1 offering the chance to experience many brand new thrills and adventures.
New attraction Jumpin’ Jacks! is a huge bouncy pillow for all the family to enjoy as they clamber, leap and bounce upon this giant inflatable,measuring 46ft long by 33ft wide.
Then, Flying Nellies is an exciting new ride for younger visitors taking them into the air on a magical elephant, while the Mini Sand-Diggers offer kids all the fun of playing with sand without getting their hands dirty.
And after that, parents can tire out the little ones by letting them run wild on Lightwater Valley’s new interactive adventure playground.
