You must be 1.3m+ to ride unaccompanied (1m+on a horse or 0.7m in a chariot if accompanied by someone min. 16 years old and 1.3m+)
A popular Victorian ride for everyone from children to adults, Choose to ride on one of our many horses… there might even be one with your name.
Without a doubt, the most iconic fairground ride of all time, the Carousel (or Merry-go-round as it is often called) is a true family favourite enjoyed and remembered by young and old. Always an eye-catching attraction, the Carousel has entertained crowds at fairgrounds since the reign of Queen Victoria, and the history of this wonderful ride goes back even further when person power or mules turned the rides as the public enjoyed their fun.
Children under the minimum height of 1.3m can ride but must be accompanied by 1 adult per child (min height 1m) on the same horse or 1 adult per 3 children in a chariot (min 0.7m)
Due to the new theme park guidelines from the British Standards Institute (BS EN13814-1) regarding ride accessibility, Lightwater Valley have reviewed its operating procedures and as a result some ride height restrictions have been amended accordingly.
