Are you and your kids ready to brave the ten loops of Colossus or the rotating blades of Saw? Or would you prefer the family to get soaked on Tidal Wave’s gigantic drop? Maybe you like taking it easy on the Teacups or the Flying Fish? Whatever level adrenaline rush you seek, Thorpe Park can provide it.
The theme park has over 25 rides and attractions to keep the family thrilled, as well as plenty of affordable places to eat and drink. For older kids, flying through the air on Detonator or Slammer is a sure-fire way to get hairs raised. There are also rides for younger ones: the Chief Ranger’s Carousel is a family favourite, and kids can swing through the trees on Mr Monkey’s Banana Ride.
The Showcase hosts fascinating live shows throughout the year – check which shows are on when you arrive. The park even has its very own Thorpe Shark Hotel, to extend your thrills for even longer!
Half term craziness ruined this for us quite a lot, rides were great but the 90 minute queues took the fun out of it for us, 10/10 for the rides we got to go on – 0/10 for the queues and overcrowding- in future we’ll go on an inset day!!!
