Lightwater Valley, near Ripon, is readying for its first day of pleasure-seekers on April 17 but those seeking a thrill may be disappointed as its signature attraction rollercoaster, the Ultimate, is not among those reopening immediately.
Colin Bowen, manager at the park, said: “We sold out virtually every day last summer when we reopened.
“We’ve got a new attraction this year called Go Safari, with 40 life-size animals and we’re specifically aiming at the under-12 market now. It’s something we’ve been talking about for many years.
“Because of Covid last year, we targeted just families and now we’ve got rid of some of the bigger rides.
“The park has been refreshed more than it has for many years.”
Yorkshire Wildlife Park is also set to reopen with animal lovers able to meet its newest residents, including an albino baby wallaby.
