Thorpe Park Trip Report
Last year he went to Thorpe Park and had the worst day of his life.
i always go to thorpe park. last year i went to thorpe park and i had the worst day of my life.
we started at the entrance. the prices were apauling but we didon't let that spoil hour day
i love the lost city part of the park. i've been on it all. sum of the rides (eclipse and x no way out) don't really cata for the blind. also x was closed quit a lot due to tekinal problams with the ride apart from that the lost city is grate
this part of the park is much smaller. it's rides are fungle safary the banana ride and the carasel
i only went on the banana boat. the safary was closed(some one had fallen out a car) and the carasel i didon't fancy. i think that ranger county needs investment.
well what can i say. it's a dome and you have got to walk threw it to reach the park.
this land only has one ride tidal wave. it's a grate ride with news reports playing in the exit.
once on the boat be prepared to get soaked
it's a grate ride and i hope to ride it this year
this area is grate. it's got the flying fish rapids pirates 4d (now the haunted lighthouse) teacups inferno model world and sunken garden.
it's a good mix how ever there are 3 problems i came across
1. most of the time the features on pirates 4d are broken
2 there are to many steps on the rapids (i'm blind)
3 teacup twisters (now storm in a teacup) sum times anoy people with stupid anouncements
apart from that it's grate
p.s sleepy joes rib shack is not there in 2004. there building a pizza hut
this is a grate area. it's got logers leap and rocky exspress.
logers is grate. board at the station while you hear country music (it doseon't stop by that i mean the ride) leave climb the hill get wet simple
rocky exspress is a kidy's ride really but i still went on it
i didon't go the other area's becaus i'm 17 and there bee nothing for me in those areas
all i have left to say injoy thorpe park

I hate for this to be my first post but I just couldnt help but point out the horrible grammar and spelling contained within this report.
let's just say as long as it's there i don't care
I think the fact the writer is blind can account for the grammer.
I also think a further meantion of the sounds and smells would have been a cool way for the reader to (un)enjoy the critic's review. Tho, why he chose Haunted Lighthouse in 4-D when he could only enjoy two of the four 'D's is a little beyond me. But, I guess it would have been the same crappy movie had I kept my eyes closed.

I dont think I've ever seen such an ignorant and unnecessary post as John Wallace's. Daniel took the time to write a trip report, and all you can comment on is the spelling and grammar. Its irrelevant whether he is blind or not, you've never even submitted a comment, let alone a whole thread, and you feel it is your right, no, duty
to complain about something as stupid as the words he has used. A diverse set opinions is what makes TPI, but a disgraceful lack of courtesy is what would destroy it.
Oh, and how about you learn how to use an apostrophe before you go bitching about other people?
Daniel, I'm pleased to see that you went on Rocky Express. Personally, I love it.
How helpful were staff? I've heard only good things about Tussauds' disability program, but it would be good to hear the thoughts first hand.
Welcome to the site. We're not all as ignorant and unhelpful as John!
John, on some braille keyboards, there is no option for a capital letter, as I have been with a blind person who's keyboard had no captial letters option. That explains the bad grammar.
well i hope you all are not as ignorant as john.
he really upset me when i read that post.
by the way the staff at the park are very helpfull
you know what if john goes on about gramar i won't post any more
What was your favourite ride? PS don't stop posting because of one person.
How dare you insult this man John. It must have taken him ages to type up his opinions you self-centered slimy a** h***.
my faverote ride had to be vortex
Great report Daniel. Keep on riding and keep on reporting. The next time I'm in the UK I have to check the park out. Does management restrict you from any of the rides, or can you go on eveything?
yes you can go on what ever how ever you need a special ticket for colosus
There is no point going to Thorpe Park this season, maybe when they finish building that Rocket Coaster in 2006 or 07. Try your luck at Chessington (I know) or maybe just buy yourself a Ryanair/Easyjet ticket to Madrid for Warner Bros. Movieworld or Strasbourg for Europa Park. Otherwise, really guys, don't visit a park, where there new attraction is 'the old one from Chessington, re-named and re-themed', talk about Tussauds cost-cutting. Don't reward a park with money, when they just re-theme/or re-name an old ride.

Samurai hasn't even been renamed or rethemed. An extra splodge of paint on the main arms is all that's changed. Dragon's Fury might be ccol, though.
Where is that Mondial Top Scan from Chessington going to go? I know it's going to Thorpe Park, but where are they putting it?
they have put it in lost city
john wallace is a self centred so and so a great report my favoroite ride is tidle wave happy posting
I'm planning go in may on a off peak day in the middle of the week,as hopefully ques will be down,providing this is the case and hopefully it might be sunny,is it really worth goin its goin to be just me and four mates?
yes i guess so.
it's just for kids and teens really but i think you're enjoy it
Speeking of John Wallace, is he still on this site after receiving overwhelming criticism?
We hope not.
becaus i seem to have problems posting new articles i've decided to revew ride by ride
atlantis:this is a dome.
it is now called port atlantis but it is still nice
tidal wave:this is a grate ride in the entrence you can hear news reports and old tunes.
once you've voarded the boat though be prepared to get wet.
we went on a nice day this year so it was okay
flying fish:this ride is nothing special voard a train and zoom round a fast longish track.
inferno:grate ride. i love it
haunted light house:this is a far better show than pirates 4d how ever it still has more problems that pirates
detinator:this atraction is a nmust for thrill seekers. there's this really cheesy count down and you are plunged a long wqay down
loggers leap:this ride is old but still good
board at the station go round the track get wet get back to the station jump out the boat befor you're whisked away and buy your photo
rocky exspress:this is a ride that travels threw the rocky mountains. when i went this year i rode 4 times
vortex:cool ride not for the faint hearted
zodiac:grate ride too
x:this was closed but i'm sure it's good
colosus:this must be the fastest coaster in the park.
eclipse:a nice slow ride around the park
quantum:grate magic carpet ride
ranger county was good
can't revew it i'm afraid
Sounds cool. I love Thorpe Park.
Did you go on Nemesis Inferno?
That's a really cool coaster.
yep...went on that!
you're rite about cool coasters!
Hi, yer this park is getting better and wont b long till its as good as alton towers but they still need to work on thier theming when the park grows and what the hell is going on in lost city, its a good land with lots of good rides but its got way too big now with 8 rides! they should split it up into 2 seperate lands and knock down X no way out cos thats just sh*t to make room for a new coaster or something.
thorpe park are closing X in 2008!
until then we'll just have to put out with it!

Hi Guys, don't know if you can help. Just wanted your views on the suitability of the park for my 14 yr old daughter and her friend to visit on their own.
