Pleasureland Southport opened the UK’s only Chaos ride in 1998. It was later relocated to Lightwater Valley where it operated as Hornet’s Nest.

Bird of Prey shows have been a staple at UK parks for many years. They have featured at Lightwater Valley and Camelot, among others.

The UK now has only two operating roller coasters built by the Schwartzkopf company (Raptor Attack at Lightwater Valley and Cannonball Express at Pleasurewood Hills).

The Ultimate at Lightwater Valley is the longest roller coaster in the UK at 7,442 ft. It’s also the longest in Europe and the second longest in the world.
