Thorpe Park located in Chertsey, Surrey is 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. In 2012 the park received 1.8m visitors.
The park currently contains the world’s first 10 looping rollercoaster. Fearless thrill seekers are challenged to hit full throttle on the Park’s iconic rollercoasters – THE SWARM, SAW – The Ride (the world most terrifying rollercoaster), Stealth, Colossus and legendary Nemesis Inferno. Riders who brave it backwards on THE SWARM, the UK’s first winged rollercoaster, won’t know what’s coming as they are spun 180° and plunged 127ft into a series of near-misses, before facing the 100ft ‘beyond vertical’ drop of SAW – The Ride. Younger theme park fans can earn their adrenaline apprenticeship on some of the Park’s other thrilling rides. Ride on a wave of light and sound on X, an indoor junior coaster, before enjoying the gravity defying Zodiac and manic carpet ride of Quantum. There are also five water rides to excite the whole family, including the super-soaking Tidal Wave, the ultimate sky-high spinning water ride, Storm Surge, and the classic log flume with a double drop twist, Logger’s Leap.
