Recently took advantage of this. Booked in December time for last weekend gone, stayed on the Sunday.

Key points
- Entry, Fast Track and Hotel stay. (Free second day, although on Monday it was closed so we only got one day)
- We could enter early through the annual pass queue by using the generic scanner (maybe we broke the rules, I didn't care, I wasn't standing in a 500+ person queue before opening)
- Hotel rooms are small, showers are good, food is adequate at best.
- We were able to use fasttrack from 10am Sunday until the end of day, 5pm (most rides were still operating past this but queues are closed at park close time)
- Parking was free, and we just flashed our bands on exit.
- the 'unlimited' Fast track is seens as 'important' and generally on rides where they only allow 4 from F/T at a time will allow you through with the unlimited band compared to the folk who purchased single fast track vouchers during the day.
- We were able to do all of the big rides and most of the thrill rides before midday (2 hours of park time) with F/T.
- Queues for F/T would range from none to 15-30 minutes. The most we waited was for the Derren Brown experience which was a 15-30m 'ride' and normal queues were easily 1-2hr+, F/T got us in fairly quickly.
- Some staff seem to be bias to normal queue customers and often act more assertive towards F/T users and Disabled users (I don't blame them, it was somewhat clear that the amount of 'carers' these disability users had were more than required (freebie fast track tho right? THey have to have their slip signed everytime they use the fast track, which usually adds significant delays between runs)

Full disclosure; i'm not sure that because the park was closed MOnday, that our fast track worked all day on day one or not. But our bands were RED and said MONDAY across them with the SHARK hotel logo.

I would say it's a fairly good deal, we didn't stay overnight because we lived 20 minutes away and the rooms were tiny, we just used it for a quick shower at the end of the day (mainly because our water pressure is horrible in London and I appreciate a good shower). We easily got our moneys worth, I wouldn't spend £90 on that fasttrack pass on my own, ever. Certainly not worth that.

My advice would be to go on a weekday off-peak. I hear that Peak times often have Fast Track queues as long as the normal queues in some instances. - We didn't experience this.

On that note, I'm going to look at rebooking this since some of the rides broke after lunch and some were not open during the entire day. (Annoyingly, unlike other parks, no discount / free tickets were given as a gesture of goodwill, it's almost as if they expect things to break and you should be aware of that too.) I didn't quite realise how much I'd wrote, but I hope it's useful to somebody looking to book.

Unlimited Fastrack is valid only between park opening — 11am on the second day park entry

So one hour on one of the days.

Also assumes all the rides open on time.
I'd pay a little extra for the Doubletree in Woking and it comes with breakfast (Travelodge doesn't)

I wouldn't say your experience was the average, more likely will be as says on website, fastrack till 11am
Great deal, booked. Thanks!
Unlimited Fastrack offer valid on stays at the THORPE SHARK Hotel only when booked as part of a ticket and hotel package. Ultimate Fastrack valid until 11am on all days apart from the day of arrival. Unlimited Fastrack ticket allows you a reduced queuing time on all Fastrack rides.
1 hour fast track whats the point

Bit of a stinking attitude you have not caring if you broke the rules or not as you think you are better than everyone else and are not going to queue up like everyone else has to.

I suspect you are one of these drivers who also don’t care when there is a traffic jam on the motorway so you use the hard shoulder.

anyone mentioned it's a ship container? Might be because we went the first week, place to put head down and that's it. Don't expect to be able to put a pram inside.
Whats thrope park like in relation to portaventura?
They generally open the park earlier that 10 to people staying in their shipping containers so it's more like 1.5 - 2 hours of fast track. When we went we managed to do all the main rides and a couple repeats in that time. Enjoyed those 2 hours more than the rest of the time there as I hate queues (but love adrenaline). Top tip: remember to turn the ac on at night or everything inside will be wet with moisture in the morning...
Why would anyone want to stay in a shipping container?
I booked for end of may 30/31 and it was £59 for two so just under £30 each

Well I certainly appreciate how much you wrote and I read it right to the very end. So thank you! I think I will have to stay in one of the very tiny rooms though as we are 3 hours drive from Thorpe Park. It sounds like a good deal and like you had a great time.
I've just booked this deal to stay in their Shark hotel. (shipping container or not, I don't care) I don't sleep with my eyes open, do you? Anyhow, we don't have to drive the car anywhere else at night or back again in the morning, no parking to worry about on either side, (as there is only the one side), free breakfast, free park entry x2 days and the deal I managed to get IN THE MAY HALF TERM for 1 adult plus 2 children, WITH free cancellation (£9.xx extra) came to £100.34. It was coming out more if I said it was 1 adult, 2 children (an extra £20) but as soon as I changed it to 2 adults and 1 child (all went through as ADULTS anyway) it came down to just over £90. I double checked the tickets by the gate, and adults and any children aged 3 and above were charged adult rate and so the rooms accept no more than 4 heartbeats, regardless of size. So I do find it very strange that they charge more for an extra child and less adults. Very bizarre as even the breakfast is included and a child eats less of that too.
Oh well, I'm happy. Thanks for posting.
