Operated by Merlin Entertainments
THORPE PARK is now Open for the 2012 season.

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 Rides
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 world most terrifying rollercoaster SAW: The Ride.

Don't forget the package of flat rides including Detonator, Vortex, Rush, Quantum, Samurai and Slammer!

Atmosphere
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!

Fastrack
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 2012
The SWARM - Thorpe Park has unleashed their latest rollercoaster 'The SWARM'. This ride is a B&M Wingcoaster and will be situated on the newly developed land behind Tidal Wave.
The coaster will dive under aeroplanes, spin through an abandoned church and dive around a shot down helicopter. The layout features a unique inverted start, a zero-g-roll, an inclined loop, a corkscrew and an inline twist. -- Last edited by Chad H on July 20, 2012
