Lightwater Valley has confirmed that it will open a new themed area, Eagle's Creek Farm, for the 2013 season.
Headlined by a tractor ride acquired from the shuttered Loudoun Castle theme park in 2010, the new area will be themed around a farmyard. A petting farm will be included alongside the ride, hosting chickens, pigs, pygmy goats, donkeys and a cow.
Meanwhile, fansite Valley Mania reports that the park's theatre will be host a new live magic show in 2013, while the park has also commissioned a new soundtrack to be played over its PA system.
The park suffered a dip in attendance during 2012, but has recently received planning permission to install 106 timber lodges on-site by 2014. The self-catering lodges will be designed to encourage longer visits to the theme park, and are expected to provide a boost for the struggling business.
