    Thorpe Park vs Chessington World of Adventures; which London area Merlin park do you prefer?

    Hi guys. Merlin Entertainments, the owner of the 4 biggest theme parks in the UK, has two Resort Theme Parks in the London area; Thorpe Park and Chessington World of Adventures. In spite of these parks’ identical owner and close proximity to one another, they are very different theme parks...

    Thorpe Park- How crap is it?

    27/03/2022 The day is Mothers Day in the UK, most normal people would celebrate it with their mothers. I left a bottle of pinot in the fridge with a note, with my two favourite idiots, we ventured to Cherstey, to discover Merlin's least favourite asset. So, Thorpe Park. Once hailed as the park...

    How could Merlin make the two Southern Resort Theme Parks (Thorpe & Chessington) coexist in harmony?

    Hi guys. Since Tussauds' purchase of Thorpe Park in 1998, Chessington & Thorpe Park, two of the UK's largest theme parks, have operated under the same corporate umbrella (Tussauds from 1998 through to 2007, Merlin since 2007) within very little distance of each other; both parks serve the London...

    Thorpe Park | Project Exodus | Mack Hyper Coaster? (UK's tallest coaster) | 2023/2024

    Hi guys. Thorpe Park has not received a major investment since Derren Brown’s Ghost Train in 2016, and they have not received a coaster since Swarm in 2012. However, there are rumblings that this may be about to change. What rumblings, I hear you ask? Well, there are signs that Thorpe may be...

    Thorpe Park 7th September 2021

    Hi guys. Today, I went to Thorpe Park for a bit of midweek fun; my uni course doesn’t start until 20th September, so I thought I might as well make the most of it! I say “I” because today’s visit was actually my first ever solo theme park visit; my mum & dad dropped me off at Thorpe and went to...

    Thorpe Park 11th July 2021

    Hi guys. We went to Thorpe Park today, and we had a nice day! We left home at about 7:15, and got to Thorpe itself at around 9:20, meaning we were in good time to get into the park for opening time: One thing I had forgotten before our visit was that Thorpe are currently running an event...

    Is The Walking Dead at Thorpe Park on borrowed time?

    So i have been preparing to go Thorpe this Thursday. During checking the queue times for stuff, i noticed The Walking Dead seems to always be a ghost town queue wise. Rarely exceeding 10 minutes ever, even when other rides have queues of 90 minutes. It usually has a smaller wait than any of the...

    Thorpe Park Fright Nights 20th Anniversary

    For the 20th anniversary, I'd personally love to see the return of Creek Freak Massacre and Containment. In terms of new mazes, I do wanna see the return of a classic. What they could do firstly with returning classics, is give them something uniquely new about it. So if they brought back...

    What is going on with Thorpe park?

    It's almost always been my home park and we used to own annual passes around the opening of Saw. But the state of the park the last few times I've been has been pretty dismal. The past 5 years of investment has devalued the park from a fun day with awesome rides to a tacky, unpleasant day out...

    Thorpe Park 30th July 2020

    Hi guys. After a successful visit to Alton Towers earlier this month, we headed to Thorpe Park today. We left our home in Gloucestershire at just after 7am, so we got there incredibly early; we were in the car park a solid 30-40 minutes before the park opened, and due to this, I was pleasantly...

    Incident at Thorpe Park

    Unfortunately, it would seem as though an incident has occurred at Thorpe Park. If the reports I’m hearing are true, it could be quite a major one. It’s not related to any of the rides, but quite major nonetheless. I’m hearing reports that people have been stabbed at Thorpe Park, and they’re...

    Rank the Thorpe Park coasters

    Hi guys. As I visited Thorpe Park yesterday, I'd be intrigued to know your ranking of their coasters if you've been. I'll get the ball rolling with my personal ranking: The Swarm Nemesis Inferno Stealth The Walking Dead: The Ride (known as X when I last rode in 2014) Flying Fish Saw: The Ride...

    Thorpe Park 2nd August 2019

    Hi guys. Today, my parents and I headed to Thorpe Park; they had given me this trip as a present for my 16th birthday on Wednesday! It was an 8pm close today, so we left quite late and arrived in the park at just before 12pm with the intention of staying until 8pm. However, as you’ll discover...

    Alton Towers and Thorpe Park Rumoured To Get Lego Themed Areas For 2020

    Now I may not have physical links or evidence (cause I am not on this closed FB group where it was spotted) but there was a rumour from a post on a closed Facebook group for Merlin Passholders, that Cloud Cuckoo Land and Angry Birds Land will be transformed into Lego themed areas for the 2020...

    Thorpe Park 2021 Coaster Concept

    I doubt anybody will read this, but for the last month or so I've been working on a little project whenever I had the time. This is my first attempt at custom scenery from Sketchup and Photoshop into Nolimits 2. This coaster isn't what I think will be coming to the park, just what I wish would...
