The ultimate UK destination for thrill seekers

Thorpe Park Resort

About Thorpe Park Resort

Whether you want to get wild and crazy or prefer to keep your feet planted on the ground, Thorpe Park Resort has something fun for everyone. Located only 30 minutes outside central London, it's home to more than 30 jaw-dropping rides and attractions. This is where you'll find the UK's most fearsome roller coasters.

Thorpe Park Resort is essentially the nation's thrill capital. Not only does it boast inversion coasters (like Colossus and Nemesis Inferno) and the UK's only winged roller coaster (have you heard of The Swarm?), but there are also water rides aplenty. And if you're really brave, hop on Stealth, one of Europe's fastest and tallest roller coasters.

There are even more memories to be made with friends and family at Thorpe Park Resort. Among the not-to-be-missed experiences are the intense action on Derren Brown's Ghost Train: Rise Of The Demon, the 100-foot drop on SAW - The Ride and the frantic journey to the Safe Zone on The Walking Dead: The Ride.

Don't worry, Thorpe Park Resort hasn't forgotten about its youngest guests. Within the grounds are the Flying Fish junior coaster as well as the magic carpet ride Quantum. Kids will also love getting soaked on the Storm Surge, Rumba Rapids and Tidal Wave. What's more, there are firm family favourites such as Angry Birds 4D Experience and dodgems.

Thorpe Park Resort traces its roots back to the 1930s when Thorpe Park Estate was demolished. Its grounds became a gravel pit that were later transformed into a 400-acre water and leisure park. In the '80s, the area was redeveloped into a theme park. Newer and more nerve-racking rides and attractions have been added ever since.

So if you want to escape for a fantastic, fun-filled day of laughter and screaming, Thorpe Park Resort is the place to go.
