Lightwater Valley are extremely proud to be home to the longest roller coaster in Europe and one of the UK’s most loved attractions, The Ultimate. This year marks an impressive 25 years since The Ultimate first opened. Since then, millions of daredevils have visited Lightwater Valley for great days out in Yorkshire, braving The Ultimate’s stomach-flipping drops and zigzagging adventures through the woods surrounding our beautiful Yorkshire theme park. Still to this day, it’s one of the most popular attractions in the region.

If you’re looking for a family day out Yorkshire with a twist this summer, Lightwater Valley’s Ultimate celebrations could be the perfect event for your group. We have plans to get the wildest of adventurers onto The Ultimate… whilst holding a bucket filled with 2.5l of slime, all battling to be the rider with the most still left in their bucket at the end of the journey. Great days out in Yorkshire don’t get much crazier than this! Dare you take on the Ultimate challenge?

Thrill-seekers coming along to ride The Ultimate on this one-off family day out Yorkshire can expect a day of fantastic fun and ear-piercing screams as they hurtle around the track for a speedy 1.5 mile cocktail of tight corners, steep drops and serious airtime. Reaching heights of 107ft and taking almost six minutes to complete, The Ultimate is certainly not for the faint-hearted. Our Yorkshire theme park has been known for this signature attraction for years and we couldn’t be happier to be opening our gates to you on such a special day for the park.

For health and safety reasons, passengers riding The Ultimate must be over 1.3m – but don’t worry, we have plenty of attractions for the little ones as well to make Lightwater Valley one of the best days out Yorkshire you’ll have all year. Not only do we have water rides, mini coasters and train trips to keep those younger members of the family occupied, but Lightwater Valley is home to the UK’s largest Angry Birds Activity Park, bringing hours of interactive fun and games to so that your family day out Yorkshire is amazing for all the family.

Great days out in Yorkshire don’t come much more exciting than a good old action-packed day at a theme park, and coming on one of our special events days will make your summer days out Yorkshire even more memorable. Along with The Ultimate’s wacky 25th birthday event, this season we are hosting a Teddy Bear’s Picnic, Andy’s Dinosaur Weekend featuring CBBC’s Andy Day and for those serious daredevils: The Ultimate Plunge bungee event. Our theme park Yorkshire is pulling out all the stops this summer and it really does have something for everyone.
