Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Family Day We went to Lightwater Valleys day that was geared for the 8 and indeed. It’s was a great day and the kids really enjoyed it, was great value for money, as it was quite quiet they got to go on everything they wanted and warm up inside the Angry Bird play area. Well thought out petting zoo and inflatable room also provided. Great day for the little ones who can often get discounted at big theme parks
