Took my youngest daughter age 8 here at end of June with her friend. I expected if to be really busy as it was a warm sunny day and a themed weekend " pirates and princesses" however we hardly queued for anything! The park was very clean and we found the staff friendly. I can't comment on eating places as... More

Visited lightwater valley today, with my partner and 4 children aged 12 to 6. It's not cheap to get in to for a family of our size, but the day is what you make of it. We were fortunate with the weather and also that the park was relatively quiet today. The rides appeal to all ages, sadly some of... More

Decided to camp on the site as the Tour de France was passing. I don't think camping is their strong point. We had booked a pitch next to friends but ended up 3 rows away! For a weekend of such memorable opportunities I think the marketing team missed a trick. There was no entertainment arranged, no beer tents or activities... More

We visited with our grandchildren on 30th June and had a great day out. The park was not too busy which meant we did not have to queue for too long. The park was clean and rides were very well supervised. Full marks to the staff who were friendly, courteous and helpful. There was a range of activities to suit... More

We went as a family to Lightwater Valley as we thought it would be nice for the children to experience a different theme park. It hasnt really changed over the years, the park is stuck in abit of a time warp to be honest and it was quite a let down considering the park used to be good fun when... More

Fun day out for the kids. Good choice for different age groups . expensive if you are just accompanying though. Food expensive and very poor. I ordered baked potato with chicken curry. This came with a single small strip of chicken and a small amount of sauce.

A bit expensive however there are deals to be had, we paid in advance at 19 pounds each. Although as some of our group did not go on any rides it is a bit on the high side. lots of good rides for young kids who had a great time. Clean well kept park, lots of open space whilst still... More

This is a lovely family day out with an assortment of rides and attractions. It was very quiet when we went and we were able to take our pick of the rides. The refreshments are reasonably priced and plenty of places to picnic. I really enjoyed the shopping outlet as well.

While the park etc is quite good for kids we are not happy with the shops A few month ago we called to see the table top sale and that was OK but on the way out we bought some kitchen chair pads which turned out to be absolute garbage so I sent a complaint in requesting some sort of... More
