When two of Yorkshire's greatest theme parks reopen - it only means that summer's looming, right?

Yorkshire's Flamingo Land Resort and North Stainley's Lightwater Valley Theme Park have both opened their doors today for this year's season.

Flamingo Land Resort

Flamingo Land is situated between York and the East coast, and is a combined theme park, zoo and holiday resort.

All areas of the park are open daily between 24th March and 4th November, 2018 (with Winter Zoo open daily during November to March).

If you are looking for white knuckle thrills, there is a sensational collection of 8 extreme rides, including the latest roller coaster Hero that puts visitors in a superhero flying position before swooping them around a track.

In addition there is a great choice of junior and family rides. All the attractions in Dino-Stone Park have a dinosaur theme.

Flamingo Land will also host 4 Party in the Park concerts from 6pm across summer, with celebrity chart-topping headline acts.

Lightwater Valley Theme Park

Lightwater Valley is open throughout the Easter holidays (March 24th - April 15th, 2018).

With over 40 rides and attractions for thrill seekers of all ages, the North Yorkshire attraction is bursting with mini, mega and ultimate adventures.

Take to the skies in the grip of the Eagle's Claw, venture into the underground world of Raptor Attack, see the park from a whole different viewpoint aboard Black Pearl and then hop on Apollo and take a spinning ride above the tree tops.
