I wonder how many 3 year old children are 4ft 3 ????

Standard price, and not much of a deal at that.

I've never been to the park and the ride doesn't open until June, so for people who have never visited it's a heads up more than a deal..

Crazy price. £1,530 per hour. Almost £100 for a family of 5, all over in 40 seconds.

A whole day at Thorpe Park can be had for not much more than this.

Those voting hot clearly have a money > sense issue.

When you go to Thorpe park how much is the entrance fee? £40? you might get to go on 6 or 7 big rides that you spend 1hr each in the queue for less than a minute's ride.. isn't that the same?? the price of this ride is £5 but you pay the full price to go around the attraction of whatever is the park (never been so don't know)
it's a sightseeing thing I suppose so if you've never been somewhere that you probably won't be going to again in the near future you might spend more than normal and try it out...

#justsaying

15mph? I can easily run faster than that for 40 seconds. Can't imagine it being a thrill ride.

snowdon to aberystwyth. now there's a ride i'd take.
the shard to gatwick airport. yes please.

What a rip-off. £17 for a makeshift slide.

This is why I as a londoner never bother going to any of the "attractions" in my city, what a complete rip off.

I'd be interested to meet a three year old who is at least 1.3m tall. On second thoughts perhaps I wouldn't, especially if he was with his dad!

There is a joke in there somewhere

£15-17 for 40seconds....

No Morlittalarces allowed then

The tickets will be all over Groupon and the like next summer once the 'got to do it first' crew have paid to ride.

Those passing comment without checking the website, should have made the effort and then wouldn't look dumb because they got their figures very wrong.
Perhaps if they spent more time looking for deals to post and less time criticising they would have posted more than 1 deal a year.
Perhaps they should post more than 1 deal a year before trying to criticize

I thought the comments section was for posting opinions on the deal.

You seem to think it's for posting opinions on other people's opinions on the deal. I'm surprised you have time - shouldn't you be busy looking for deals to post?

I could now post my opinion of your opinion of my opinion of the deal, but then you'd probably just post your opinion of my opinion of your opinion of my opinion on the deal. So let's leave it at that
