The Ultimate at Lightwater Valley

Lightwater Valley returned to profit in the year ending 31 January 2015, following several years of consecutive losses.

The North Yorkshire theme park recorded a pre-tax profit of £110,000 as a result of the 2014 season, following £168,000 losses in the previous year.

Company accounts show that turnover at the North Yorkshire theme park increased by almost 8%, to £6.28 million.

The years to 31 January 2012 and 2013 saw losses of £55,000 and £500,000 respectively.
