Frightwater Valley

26-29 October 2017

It’s Halloween time – all the ghastly ghosts and gruesome ghouls are about to come out of the shadows of the theme park. During the day there will be friendly frights for the whole family but BE WARNED...the darker the night the scarier the fright!

Fabulous Fireworks

Enjoy extra excitement at no extra cost! The theme park rides are all open as usual from 10am but once darkness falls, it’s time for the 15 minute "Best of British" firework show. Choreographed to music and set over our picturesque Swan Lake, this is a fabulous firework spectacular you don’t want to miss!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slightly underwhelmed with this dated theme park Thankfully I purchased these tickets online slightly cheaper than the gate price..though we didn't have bad day and tbh the kids loved it but they loved it ten yrs ago and nothing much has changed just slightly rustier.the food as usual with these places is over priced and the queues are immense at peak times for the rides..we won't won't be going again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not that good A bit misleading about hight restrictions my son could not go on most of the rides 1cm to short one let him on and one didn't I don't think we will be going again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed it I decided to book tickets the day before on line. A lot cheaper and glad I paid the extra £3 for the meal deal. Saved a fortune. Security needs to be better to stop people smoking and drinking alcohol. And more staff needs to be put on the more popular rides. Not have 1 staff covering 2 rides.
