PREVIEW: Easter Days Out at Lightwater Valley in Yorkshire
Posted on April 1st 2019 by Whats on Northeast
Lightwater Valley Theme Park in Ripon, North Yorkshire will be open for the Easter Holidays from Saturday 6th – Sunday 28th April.
Younger visitors will be able to enjoy the brand new ‘Outer Space’ themed Magic Lights Puppet Show in the Show Barn, with three shows a day throughout the holidays.
Meet Jester and Jasmine, the park’s all-new cuddly dinosaur mascots as they meet and greet families from 3pm and join in as they entertain the crowds with their choregraphed dance shows including their favourite hit song, Baby Shark.
Riggmoor Farm will be at the park throughout the whole holiday period giving visitors the chance to meet lambs, calves, donkeys, an alpaca, rabbits, chicks and chickens and pygmy goats.
Budding buccaneers will want to have a go at the pirate themed treasure trail egg hunt around the park over the Easter weekend – Friday 19th – Monday 22nd April.
Follow the clues on the treasure map around the park to track down letters then spell out the word correctly to collect a chocolatey prize, but beware of the pesky pirates on the way who will be trying to guard their loot.
There will be pirate-themed face painting over the Easter weekend too!
With over 35 rides and attractions, suitable for all ages, Lightwater Valley offers fantastic adventures for all the family.
Ride The Ultimate rollercoaster, Lightwater Valley’s signature ride that provides a thrilling 1.5 mile cocktail of speed, cornering and airtime.
Take to the skies in the grip of the Eagle’s Claw, venture into the underground world of Raptor Attack, see the Park from a whole different viewpoint aboard Black Pearl and then hop on Apollo and take a spinning ride above the tree tops.
Enjoy wet ‘n’ wild fun on the Wild River Rapids, and swashbuckling adventures aboard speedy Skull Rock and the tummy-tickling Flying Cutlass. Plus jump around on the huge Jumpin’ Jack’s bouncy pillow.
There is something for little ones too including the Lightwater Express train ride around the park, Eagle’s Creek Farm tractor ride as well as Jester’s Jungle Fun indoor play area.
