Lightwater Valley will reopen with a reduction in ticket prices the first two weekends

A family theme park less than an hour and a half drive from Newcastle will reopen this weekend. Lightwater Valley, near Ripon, North Yorkshire, returns for the Spring/Summer season on Saturday March 26.

Admission now includes access to the treetop trails, as well as the theme park itself.

“This thrilling net crossing experience gives families the chance to explore the tree canopy above the park and have fun jumping through the giant bungee nets suspended up to 12 meters above the ground,” says Lightwater Valley. on its website.

“Practice your agility and get dizzy as kids big and small build their confidence to bounce along the bungee nets. Entirely surrounded by high net walls, you can play in the trees without needing a harness.

New attractions will open in 2022, including a virtual reality (VR) experience, dodgems and the Twist and Turn ride.

However, the park’s famous roller coaster, The Ultimate, will not reopen in 2022, and it is unlikely to return at all, reports Gazzette Live, as Lightwater Valley shifts its focus to young children.

Is ‘The Ultimate’ open or closed? What happened?



The Ultimate has been closed since 2019 and will not return in 2022

It was the longest roller coaster in Europe, but The Ultimate won’t reopen in 2022.

The Ultimate did not operate in either the 2020 or 2021 seasons and will remain closed in 2022.

The ride is not included in the list of Lightwater Valley attractions for 2022. Neither Raptor Attack nor Apollo.

As Gazette Live reports, Lightwater Valley has turned more to the under-12 market and made the decision not to reopen the Ultimate.

“As a result of this recalibration, we have retired a few of our much older rides and know this will disappoint some thrill-seeking visitors,” park manager Colin Bowes previously said.
