Bring back childhood memories of holidays to Scarborough and ride the Historic Water chute. Listed as one of the top 10 Vintage Seaside Attractions by The Guardian the historic chute is now operated by the North Bay Railway Company and we have re-vitalised it for operation, for many years to come. It is one of only three left in the country, the others being the original one in Wicksteed Park, Kettering and Hull’s East Park.

Our pedal boats are also available for hire May – September.

Our other attractions include Miniature Railway, Sky Trail Adventure, Water Walking Ball, Boating Lake, Boatman’s Tavern, Glass House Café/Bar and Scampi Shack.
