Theme park prepares to scare as it transforms into Frightwater Valley
2:09pm Thursday 31st October 2013 in News
A TEAM of young actors are preparing to give theme park-goers a fright to remember on a haunted walk at Lightwater Valley.
The park, near Ripon, North Yorkshire, is celebrating Halloween by transforming into Frightwater Valley until Saturday, November 2, and has enlisted 12 performers from Harrogate Youth Theatre, as well as professionals from Pink Ink Entertainment, Jack in the Boxx and T Park, to give visitors a good scare.
Simon Edward, guest experience manager at Lightwater Valley, said: “I used to be a member of HYT and it holds many happy memories for me, so when I was looking for an organisation I could trust to animate our Haunted Walk they were top of my wish-list.
“It’s going to be an amazing event and I can’t wait to see HYT in action scaring our visitors.”
HYT member Sophie Clement added: “I'm taking part because I love the atmosphere we help to create and how much everyone enjoys seeing it and taking part.
“I'm really looking forward to seeing people's reactions to being scared – especially the people who think that they can't be scared and end up terrified.”
This year Frightwater Valley features Project Ultimus - a new live action horror maze - as well as Raptor Attack Live, and the opportunity to experience a selection of the park’s rides in the dark, including Whirlwind, Twister and Eagle’s Claw.
For younger visitors there are spooky puppet shows as well as Eagles’ Creep Farm - a scary version of the park’s farmyard ride, Eagles Creek Farm.
Frightwater at Lightwater Valley is open from 10am to 6.30pm each day.
Tickets are £19.50 if pre-booked online at www.lightwatervalley.co.uk.
