Yes, everything went south for Lightwater Valley when they removed Toad Hole, one of the most amazing, if potentially dangerous, attractions in the UK.

As the first Angry Birds Activity Park in the North of England, the site will cover over 30,000 square feet and represents a total investment of over £1 million. It will combine the digital world of the game with the physical world, through activity-based play, encouraging visitors to move and be active.

The Angry Birds Activity Park will be complemented by an Angry Birds retail store selling a wide range of Angry Birds official merchandise from pencils to back-packs to plush toys. It has been designed and manufactured by Lappset UK. A leading provider of play equipment, the Kettering based company launched the Angry Birds concept last year which creates a new healthy way for the whole family to experience the Angry Birds theme.

The attraction is aimed at the whole family, allowing toddlers, children and adults to play together.

Angry Birds Activity Park at Lightwater Valley

Mark Bainbridge, General Manager, at Lightwater Valley, comments:
We are delighted that the global phenomenon that is Angry Birds has landed at Lightwater. We feel that the new activity park is a really good fit for us as a leading family attraction – and what we really like is it will get children and adults alike active whilst having fun together. Its opening will mark the start of an exciting programme of developments, which will improve and diversify the theme park’s offer and reinforce our commitment to providing quality leisure experiences for the whole family.

Lightwater Valley is committed to working in partnership with local businesses and organisations to support the growth and value of Yorkshire’s visitor economy.

Angry Birds has been downloaded over 1 billion times across the world, and last year it was the most popular paid-for app on Apple’s App Store. The game, now also available across different platforms, played by millions of people every day.

Further detail on the Angry Birds Activity Park will be released after Easter.

So an other day of unusual news. My heart goes out to the deer's family.
In all seriousness, I never been to Lightwater Valley but even I can see Ultimate isn't one of the best.

The Ultimate is interesting to say the least. The first half lures you into a false sense of security and then the second half (2 hours later) knocks you insane and back!
