Thorpe is easily my favorite UK park.
It has some great rides, complemented by some good themeing, my favorite being the KFC next to Tidal Wave which has a boat crashed through the roof into the restaurant!

creative advertising. Which park had the resort hotel split up into loud and quiet sections because of too-loud sex complaints? I believe that was in the U.K., too.

I heard about that with the hotel forget the location. THis is realy good alton towers is another park that just loves to get into the news with them handing diapers out ot gusts as they went on one of there coasters because gusts were having accidents on the ride. Now it is these types of stories that make me want to visit a park like this

See my February 8th discussion thread if you want to read the Press report on the "paranormal" activity at Thorpe Park.

This sounds like what's going on at Kentucky Kingdom, formerly Six Flags Kentucky Kingdom, where the park will not be able to reopen until 2013 due to "The Phantom" who has apparently been haunting the park and creating animatronic wereapes to do his bidding. The rock band KISS has been called in to investigate.
That, and a Sasquatch has apparently moved into old Chang operating house.
