One of the UK’s leading theme parks for thrill seekers, with over 15 thrill rides and rollercoasters alone, offering speeds, drops and loops as well as a calendar of exciting events, such as Fright Nights and Thrill Chill throughout the season, THORPE PARK is the place to be!
The park currently contains the world's first 10 looping rollercoaster, Europes fastest accelerating launched rollercoaster, the legendary Nemesis Inferno (The sequel to the awe-inspiring Nemesis) and the new eurofighter, SAW: The Ride.
Don't forget the package of flat rides including Detonator, Vortex, Rush, Quantum and Slammer!
THORPE PARK is full of midway games, themed rides and music and manages to create the perfect balance of all three to make the park a fun and buzzing place to be!
On top of your standard ticket price, you can pay extra to jump straight to the front of the queue lines by purchasing a Fastrack ticket. The idea is to save time and get more out of your day. In peak season you can buy online with a standard ticket or on the day at various locations around the park.

New in 2011
Storm Surge - Thorpe Park's planned new attraction for 2011 has been revealed as Storm Surge, a Spinning Rapids water ride, which will be relocated from the closed Cypress Gardens park in Florida.
This ride gives users the experience of their life winding down a huge water flume on a 6 seater ring, sure to be fun for all the family. This ride replaces the former Octopus Gardens area. -- Last edited by Oliver Preece on September 30, 2011
