Closed for 2020
For this summer, we have decided to close a number of thrill rides. As we have to reduce visitor numbers to enable us to manage the social distancing and capacity within the Park, we have opted to offer rides and experiences more suited to a younger family only. We have reduced the admission ticket price in light of this. Click here to find out more.
The Ultimate is Lightwater Valley’s signature ride and provides a thrilling 1.5 mile cocktail of speed, cornering and airtime. Unique amongst modern day attractions, The Ultimate remains the longest roller coaster in Europe with a ride time approaching six minutes.
The Ultimate has 2 lift hills of 102ft and 107ft respectively, which both offer awesome views of the park and epic amounts of both anticipation and airtime. The first half of the ride is widely regarded as the smoothest section, with the second half of the ride (between second lift and the station) providing a truly insane ride experience as the carriage hurtles through some of our deepest and darkest forest en route back to the station.
Due to the forces exerted on this ride, it is not suitable for anyone with back, heart or neck problems, expectant mothers or those having had recent surgery or injury.
Ultimate tip: For the most intense ride experience, we recommend sitting in the rear seats. Please note that this is a rough ride and passengers are advised to hold on tight!
