Lightwater Valley theme park near Ripon is to welcome an award-winning new family attraction this summer.

The development, created by Lake District-based Treetop Nets, will feature giant trampolines, walkways, slides and tunnels, all made from netting and suspended between trees up to 40 ft above the ground.

Mark Bainbridge, general manager of Lightwater Valley theme park, said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing only the second course of its kind in the UK to Lightwater Valley.

“It’s a fantastic addition to the successful attractions which are already here. The theme park and the Jurassic Adventure Golf course both enjoyed increased visitor numbers year on year.

“We know Treetop Nets will drive more people from across the region to North Yorkshire and make Lightwater Valley a must-visit destination for all the family.”

Treetop Nets was launched in June 2014, winning the Best Tourism Experience at last year’s VisitEngland Awards for Excellence.

Building is due to start at the theme park this month, and the attraction is scheduled to open in the summer, creating four new jobs.
