With its high-speed rollercoasters, gravity-defying rides and hair-raising free-falls, Thorpe Park has long been a favorite for adrenaline junkies and at just 20 miles from London, it’s the go-to amusement park for thrill-seeking Londoners. With some of England’s highest and
fastest rollercoasters and a high scare-factor, Thorpe Park is a big hit with teenagers and adults, but there are also some rides suitable for younger members of the family.
Highlights include the eye-wateringly fast Stealth rollercoaster, the horror-movie inspired Saw rollercoaster and the Tidal Wave water ride, while family favorites include Angry Birds themed bumper cars and the beach and paddling pool. Also proving popular are the latest additions to
the park – the family-friendly jungle maze inspired by TV show ‘I’m a Celebrity Get me Out of Here!’ and Derren Brown’s Ghost Train, a 13-minute-long mind-bending experience that’s the first of its kind in the world.
Thorpe Park is located in Surrey, around 20 miles (32km) southwest of London. The park is open from March to October, daily from 9.30am to 6pm, although opening hours may vary.
