Amazing. If u like a thrill u will definitely love the place. Small advice - i know it will by twice as expensive but buy fast track tickets to skip or make the waiting time for a ride shorter. average waiting time in a normal que might be up to 2h.

thorpe park takes your money and you barely get to go on a single ride as the ques are so damm long, you may think well thats not thier fault but it is they could have more carriges per ride. Also one of there new rides STORM SURGE was awfull it said duration 5 minutes it took 5 minutes getting up the damm hill , we did not even get wet. the only time we got wet on that ride was when the people squirted us with the hose guns. Another thing STEALTH seems to be always closed and if its not then it shuts down during the day after you wait 2 hours to get on. Overall crap theme park with ignorant staff , bad quality food , crap rides i would rather spend the day looking at a blank wall.

Thorpe Park is best in the Summer (though I've heard the fright nights on Halloween are something to be reckoned with!) but if you go when school's are on holiday it's unbearably busy. The longest rides are between 90secs and 2mins long - so queuing for up to three hours on a busy day just isn't worth it! However, Thorpe Park does boast the best collection of thrill rides and adrenaline trips of any theme park in the UK - especially good on the late night openings during summer as riding a rollerocaster at ten at night in the dark is unforgettable!

It is definitely worth your time to go during the week of term time, for less ques as going on a Saturday means pupils will be there. I would even go as far to say avoid Fridays as it is always the most likely day for parent to let their children have off.

But aside from how busy it can get its a great out with great roller coasters and attractions. The saw ride is seriously good but I did once queue for 3 hours to get to it. I think I have been about 10 times now and it is seriously good each time.

I Loved It! Greatest Coasters Ever, Amazing Scenery And Nice Restaurants Too. My Favourite Coaster Was Colossus. The Twists At The End Were So Fun. The Slammer Is Brilliant!!!_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ ___ _ _ _ _ _ _
