PREVIEW: ROLL UP TO THE NATIONAL FESTIVAL CIRCUS AT LIGHTWATER VALLEY
Posted on August 6th 2018 by Whats on Northeast
Visitors to Lightwater Valley will have the chance to run away to the circus – at least for a few hours – as part of the National Festival Circus from the 8th – 12th August.
The National Festival Circus is a magical mix of laughter and excitement. Slapstick clowns, balancing equilibrilists, fast tempo juggling, baffling magic, high flying diabolos, mesmerising spinning hoops and bucketfuls of fabulous fun.
The show is presented authentically within a traditional Big Top and this year is particularly special as it’s the 250th anniversary of the circus.
There will be three daily shows taking place at 11.30an, 1pm and 2.30pm and lasting approximately 30 minutes.
There will be limited spaces and slots need to be booked online in advance when purchasing tickets.
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 with animals as well as play areas indoors and out!
Meet the new mascots, Jasmine and Jester and have your selfie taken with the duo at the park.
Lightwater Bird of Prey Centre features more than 50 amazing raptors, mammals and reptiles so check out the flying displays, which take place daily during the school holidays.
