ProAn exciting, if rather tacky experience

ConsThe potential financial ruin you're risking

Allow me to sketch a rather selective portrait of myself: a colour-by-numbers where the artist has only got the red paint to hand. I am a gent in my thirties. Some might say 'his late thirties'. I am a middle-bordering-on-senior manager who wears a shirt, tie and (sometimes) cufflinks to work. I...

ProSome great rollercoasters and rides

Consrides breaking down and overpriced

When I was younger (god even writing that makes me feel old!) I loved roller coasters, the bigger and faster the better, while everyone else went green I was laughing and screaming! Then I grew up and had to be more sensible especially after having my boys, over the years we have been to all the...

ConsLong Queues, No Shade, Expensive

I have been to Thorpe Park on a number of occasions over the last few years. The university I went to was about a 15 minute drive away from the park, so it was one of the places we went to at least once a year. I’ve always had a good overall time there, though when I visited last weekend there...

Conssome rides have long queues, not all rides working

Living in Surrey I have visited Thorpe park and Chessington World of Adventures many times. When I was a kid Thorpe park was always quite tame and had only a few roller coasters and scary rides suitable for older people, Chessington World of Adventures was the adults theme park and had rides such...

I have been to Thorpe Park at least twice a year for the last two years and it still remains one of my favourite theme parks. It is also only a 90 minute drive from where I live making it easily accessible. Location Thorpe Park is situated in Churtsey in Surrey. It is easily accessible and is...

Consexpensive, queues

For the first time in a few years, today I went on a trip to Thorpe Park. My Nan gave me and my cousins some free tickets that she had managed to get out of the newspaper, so we all went together, along with my partner. Thorpe Park is a theme park set in the town of Chertsey, in Surrey. It is...

ProSome good rides, BOGOF offer

ConsHigh prices, long queues, claustrophic park

Earlier this year we were invited to our nephew's wedding in Dorset and since we live in North Wales we decided to make the journey worthwhile by staying 'down south' for a week. For my Christmas present last year Dave had bought me an 'experience' of feeding tigers by hand at Paradise Park (I...

ProGreat price for so many thrills.

ConsNot big enough, although good for it's size.

Initial I was booked to go with some friends to Thorpe Park for the first time last year, having previously gone elsewhere. I heard that it was much smaller than Alton Towers, but as it was so much closer, I thought it was a comprimise I would be willing to take. I checked out the website, and...

ConsLong queues, rides sometimes break down

GETTING THERE In 2006 I visited Thorpe Park a grand total of 3 times. I live in Dover, Kent and it took us 90minutes to get there. Thorpe Park is well sign posted from the M25 onwards so finding the park is relatively easy. Thorpe Park is situated between junctions 11 and 13 of the M25 but access...

ConsLack of variety, needs some TLC

The last time I visited Thorpe Park I was in my mid teens and was accompanied by Lizkempo, her brother plus friend and driven there by very nicely by her long suffering mother. I can remember very little about the whole experience, aside from the log flume, banana boat ride and stalking some poor...
