“Broken down outdated rides - not worth entrance fee!”

Written on: 30/03/2015

Considering this park charges the going rate for theme parks the rides are broken and out-of-date. 3 out of 9 of the thrill rides were out of order at one time leaving my family very disappointed. Apart from 3 rides on the park they all need a facelift - if not scrapped! It was very difficult knowing where queues started and where ride's exits were. Needs a modern rollercoaster for the price they are charging. Overpriced sweets/goods. Toilet facilities very poor - lacking in number, cleanliness… Read Full Review

“Love this place!”

Written on: 01/04/2013 by Pieto5 (1 review written)

Go here about twice every year great fun in fact going this Thursday (4th April 2013) I love it so much there is something for all the family the little fairground area for the little ones then stuff for the slight dare devils (ladybird, sky rider ect.) then obviously plenty for the older ones or the daring ones. I would recommend it to any family! The food is a bit on the expensive side but the park surroundings and staff completely push that out the way. I was there and I lost my phone a… Read Full Review

“i will never go back there.”

Written on: 23/06/2011 by jonno777 (1 review written)

went to the park on 14/6/11 with my mother and father inlaw, my wife and 3 children. father in law wanted to meet us and spend a family day out for his birthday. he phoned the park on friday 10th june to confirm we would be attending 14/6/11 as the weather forecast for that day was very good. my family travelled from scarborough(about 2 hour drive)and we arrived at 10:30 am. my kids were bouncing with excitement untill we got to the ticket office which was closed? went to reception and was told… Read Full Review

Lightwater Valley is a very small theme park mainly suited for kids/teens with the exception of some of the big scary rides. ive been 7 times but i still prefer flamingo land alton towers. but lightwater is still a very good theme park for little ones and they have a new area with 6 new rides this year which is a bonus… Read Full Review

Written on: 11/10/2010

A huge disappointment. It was grotty, dirty, and not very well maintained. There was a shortage of staff (we went on a sunday - and one employer said not many attend work if they have been out drinking on the sat!). The toilets were absolutely disgusting and unclean. I'm only glad I didn't have a baby that needed changing. I went with my nephew a four year old. We frequently go out for days at flamingo land and have a fun packed day. Light water valley was however the place I favoured as a… Read Full Review

Written on: 27/08/2010

The surroundings can be described as ok, that,s the best bit.

All the staff are miserable and unfriendly one turned my son away from the river rapids he was quite abruct and rude leaving my son in tears,

I queued for thirty minuets to ride the ultimate before reaching the front it broke down, no announcement was made by the staff and people were left wandering what was happening.

It says somthing about a theme park when the best family ride was the swans.

We paid via Tesco club card… Read Full Review

I agree with the raptor attack. We had to ride in a seat with no padding and (real) 'danger tape' all over it. All thats changed is that they added a few dinosaur's.

Written on: 13/04/2010 by will9696 (2 reviews written)

Lightwater Valley is a decent little theme park. There are rides for genrally all ages, although it would be hard to spend more than a couple of hours at the park as the number of rides are slightly limited. To say the park is fairly small and does not have too many attractions, the vairiation of rides is pretty good. Tickets to enter the park are fairly good in price. Food at the park is pretty good especially in the 'conservetory' rather than the 'food court'. The food although good is not… Read Full Review

Written on: 01/11/2009

Thought it was reasonably okayy. Staff i must say were extremely poor, we went on the swans which were very good once you had got in them and as far away from the man as possible. He was, lets just say 'not at all interested'. The other problem is queuing as it takes forever. My advice is to get there early and get on as many rides as possible. Best ride in my opinion is 'The Wave', Get on there if you can!(Queues a bit of a wait though as i have allready metioned). Otherwise a great day out! :)… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/08/2009

We had been to Lightwater Valley before (2 years ago) and had a great time. So this year we went along with other family members, but what a disapointment, we first went on the big wheel, it went round once and we had to get off, then on to the eagles claw, had to wait for 45min, The falls of terror, the ultimate, and the river rapids all broke down after standing in the line for 40 plus mins. There was no information when rides were down. We went to the information to make a complaint. After… Read Full Review

Just returned from beautiful sunny day at Lightwater Valley with my 3 boys. It was so much better than the reviews I have read on various internet sites. It was clean, the staff were lovely, there was a good variety of rides for all ages and it is set in beautiful countryside. Meal deals were reasonable… Read Full Review
