Closed for 2021
Whilst The Ultimate will remain at the Park it will not run for the 2021 season as we limit visitor numbers due to Covid restrictions and continue to offer new attractions for a younger audience as part of a wider development plan.
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!
