The UK’s biggest Treetop adventure!

The Treetop Trials cover over 2,000 square meters of beautiful woodland at Lightwater Valley making it the biggest of its kind in the UK!

This exhilarating net walk-through experience gives families the opportunity to explore the woodland canopy high above the park and have endless fun jumping around the giant springy nets suspended up to 12 metres from the ground!

Your little ones can practice their agility and let off some steam as they run, jump, and crawl around the nets! The high walls mean you can play without the need for a harness. Featuring tunnels, slides, and walkways, your children won’t want to leave this treetop paradise!

The family-friendly rides and attractions!

Family is at the heart of Lightwater Valley, despite having over 40 rides, almost all of them are tailored to under 12’s and younger age groups, making it THE choice in Yorkshire for family fun!

Featuring an outdoor Adventure Park suited for younger visitors, this is the perfect place to let off some steam and take a break from the theme park rides! Perhaps your little ones would prefer a ride on the Animal Carnival, they can climb aboard their favourite animal and take a spin. Maybe they’re feeling a little more daring, in that case, they can climb aboard the Jolly Roger and pretend to be a pirate swinging above the trees on a giant boat!

All of this and so much more… Lightwater Valley caters to younger children perfectly making it one of the best family theme parks!

The young visitor Outdoor Play area

Ideally suited for younger visitors (under 12 years of age). The outdoor play area offers an excellent soft play experience for your little ones.

Packed with a mixture of climbing frames, tunnels, and slides, your children will be able to run off any excess energy whilst you sit back and relax! There are so many options here to choose from so your little ones can experience a different adventure every time!
