As though there weren’t adrenaline-inducing white-knuckle thrills enough at Lightwater Valley, the theme park has now partnered with UK Bungee to provide thrill-seekers with a 160ft UK bungee jump, opening on Saturday 8 September.
Located right in the heart of the theme park in the midst of the action, those braving the bungee jump will be able to look out across the beautiful countryside that surrounds Lightwater Valley from the platform before taking the plunge.
The cost of taking a leap with UK Bungee is £60, which includes free entrance to the theme park, where they can keep the adrenaline flowing with the wide range of thrills on offer within Lightwater Valley such as The Ultimate – Europe’s longest rollercoaster – and the Black Pearl. Furthermore, over the bank holiday weekend, UK Bungee jumpers can get anyone accompanying them half price entry to the theme park.
Jon Snape, Managing Director of UK Bungee, said: “We’re very excited about this new venue: it’s fantastic that we’re able to offer our customers the chance to extend their thrills at no extra cost to the jump price.”
“The atmosphere on the day will be amazing. There’ll be the high level of excitement you’d usually expect at a bungee jump event, but this time it’ll be enhanced by the screams and laughter emanating from all the adrenaline junkies at Lightwater Valley – the atmosphere is going to be electric!”
The minimum age for anyone wanting to bungee jump is 14, while those aged 50 or over will be required to produce a doctor’s note. Jumpers must also be under the maximum weight of 120kg.
Jumps have to be pre-booked through the UK Bungee Club at www.ukbungee.co.uk or over the telephone on 07000 286 433, and should be booked early to avoid disappointment.
Lightwater Valley Theme Park in Ripon, North Yorkshire is home to over 40 rides and attractions. After developing from a self-picking strawberry farm, rides were introduced in 1987, transforming it into a modern day theme park. Some of the key attractions include ‘The Ultimate’ – which is the longest rollercoaster in Europe – and Skeleton Cove, the recently introduced pirate-themed section that includes Skull Rock, Pirate Swings, Powder Kegs, Flying Cutlass and Black Pearl rides.
