Twister • Reverchon Spinning Coaster • Lightwater ValleyLightwater Valley, near the small English town of Ripon in Yorkshire, is a medium-sized amusement park with a large number of family-friendly rides, including Europe’s longest roller coaster: The Ultimate! The park was founded in 1976 by fruit farmer Robert Staveley and is currently operated by Livingstone Leisure Ltd.

Fun Fact #1: The park was immortalized in the first Roller Coaster Tycoon from 1999 in the scenario Katie’s Dreamland.

Fun Fact #2: Since there is no technical monitoring system on the track of the roller coaster The Ultimate, the second train does not leave the station until the first one has returned.
