Thorpe Park – a thrilling island like no other

Located on its own island, Thorpe Park is one of the biggest and best theme parks in Britain with a collection of rollercoasters, water rides and attractions that will keep the whole family entertained.

From The Swarm – the UK’s first winged rollercoaster – to the super soaking Inferno and fast-spinning Vortex, there are wild experiences perfect for thrill-seekers, while those after a slightly calmer day out will love the Rocky Express Train and Mr Monkey’s Banana Ride.

Newer attractions include Derren Brown’s Ghost Train, created by the magician and mentalist himself, the Angry Birds 4D Experience and the I’m A Celebrity… Maze, where you can try your hand at Jungle Trials.

Much more than just rollercoasters…

As you’d expect from a first-class theme park, there are plenty of options to keep the family fed between the excitement. From fish and chips to Mexican, pizza and pasta, there’s something to suit all tastes whether you want to grab something on the go in-between rides or sit down for a well-earned break.

Thorpe Park is also home to a number of regular much-loved events. The famous Fright Nights celebrate Halloween throughout October with the park staying open after dark. Actors roam around dressed as monsters and there are various other spooky attractions. Book a visit if you dare…
