Might sound a bit harsh but it just shows what fear about safety concerns does to people.

After Alton Towers last year, Drayton Manor the other week and now Manc the other night theme parks will be literally opening their gates for free to get people through so you'll be seeing plenty more of these.

me take a likkle trip down de torpe park

Went Thorpe Park last year, stayed in the onsite hotel thing, would go again, only thing was on the second day, because we did everything several times on the first day, we just did everything again and left at around 11:30. To be fair I would rather do everything too many times than be queuing for 2 days and not get on everything once, but it'd be nice if they had a couple shows on throughout the day or something. I'd happily do it again in a year or two when there's new attraction(s), we paid around £50-60 for 2 days and a night on site, but the 200 mile drive means I'll stick to single days at Alton Towers and Blackpool for now.

Is this suitable for a 3 and 6 year old? I've never been


No - stick to Chessington or Legoland if you must.

Very few of those hotels are anywhere near the park at all, many are an hour or more away. Those that are nearby are not particularly good.

How very ageist!

Went last weekend and had a good time but be aware that the park is plagued by rides being constantly suspended due to various glitches with their sensors. The Ghost Train is particularly affected by this, being mostly unavailable for the two days we were there. Food and drinks are fairly pricey and the park needs a bit of TLC in terms of cleaning and painting as it looks a bit dated.

so i get to vote for someone that won't have a chance and go to a **** theme park great

Bit ageist isn't it ?

SmallSpender

Perhaps they are making an informed choice when not voting?


Impossible to know, though, isn't it? If they don't vote, politicians will assume they're never going to, and not bother tailoring policies towards them. If they were to register, turn up, and spoil their ballot papers, then at least the politicians would know it's worth trying to do stuff that these people might approve of.

Don't vote, don't complain that politicians are all useless. Of course they will be (for you) if they don't think you'll ever vote for them.

You're right to some extent but in my opinion, it isn't that bad. Like I said on another thread, if you get there early, you can go on more than 10 rides. Whenever we go, we do that, go back to the car for lunch ( to avoid the wasps), go to the 4D movie theatre and sometimes the mini theatre and pirate show by the bay. Never have I or will I buy the Qbot - pure extortion. My kids are under 10 and only like gentle rides so Alton towers is no good to us. I did think about Thorpe park for a change this year but they have asked to go to Legoland again. It might also have something to do with them loving Lego. Just waiting for the annual pass sale now as I've already booked our hotel stay.

It looked very messy, in need of decoration, rides very outdated, queues were terrible for what the rides were. Had a Merlin Season pass so it wasn't the cost of entry that bothered me but we never went again and i've seen the same feelings echoes many times.

Not really, I don't mind bundling the kids in the car early and getting down for opening time, however I'd be loathed to then do the journey in reverse the same day. Makes for two gentler days, I'm probably 3.5 hours from there. I do get your point, but it takes some of the driving out of it (and not always good driving the day before).

I just paid an average of £33 pounds per person for a proper hotel room ensuite bathroom, loo, free parking, for about two weeks including a full English breakfast just near Osterley.

I went last saturday (the 10th) it was packed the mazes opened at 3 and we managed to get in the queue for cabin in the woods and waited an hour but that was all we did as others were 2 hours but were actually longer as the signs didnt go more than 2 hours. The blair witch wasnt open till 6 and the big top was constantly 2 hours. We lined up for my bloody valentine but it broke down mid queue and everyone started climbing over the barriers. So after this we went home. Saying that the queues in the daytime were not too bad it was a case of catching them at the righg time. But saw the ride we think as it was halloween related was busy allday and we had to obtain fast passes to get on. But word to the wise if your looking to do mazes then be prepared to queue not ride as 12 hours seems alot but isnt when you take into account the queue times and i wouldnt recommend booking on the first weekend of fright nights

how good are these scare houses compared to Alton Towers?

I have been going to Alton Towers for Halloween for the last 5 years and love it, but would just like to know from people how good Thorpe Park is. for Halloween

I went last Sunday. the 'long' queue times are exaggerated to encourage you to buy Fast Track Passes. The longest we waited was half an hour even though we were told it was a 70 minute wait. Fast track passes do get you through quite quickly though.

Cakeboy79

I was there last Friday and the queues for the Halloween stuff, the Saw … I was there last Friday and the queues for the Halloween stuff, the Saw Maze, Big Top etc etc were around 2 hours. It worked well for us as the rest of the park was pretty quiet and we didn't wait for more than about 15 minutes for anything else.That said, if you're going for the scary stuff then expect to wait. Good price for four people though, just remember the £5 parking fee each day as well



Went in 2014 and found the same thing with queues. What we did to minimise the waits was look at the five (that year) houses and strike off the one that was rated lowest for scares (Blair Witch as it was), then get fast passes for the three middle ones at £5pp before joining the queue for the first maze early (took about 20 mins to get in). We then went and queued for Blair Witch as the wait time had gone right down later in the night.

Even the fast pass queues could be 30+ mins!

Parking is usually included in the onsite hotel deals, FWIW.

I wouldn't say it's a bad thing that marlin closed similar rides as at the time they didn't know what caused the incident.If they hadn't of shut them and there was a safely issue with them then everyone would be slagging them off,yet they do the right thing and people still moan,yet it turns out the ride itself was not at fault and the safety features worked perfectly,it was just the human element that was at fault and you can never rule out people making mistakes no matter what field they are working in and how well they are trained.

Did you even bother reading the incident history at Alton Towers?! You must be terrified just to leave the house...

With 3 million visitors a year, Alton Towers has likely served 60 million people since its creation. If each of those visitors went on just 3 rides per visit, then that is 180 million passenger rides. In that time, there has been ONE major incident (Smiler), one big incident (Runaway Train) and a half dozen or so incidents that are barely even worth mentioning.

With those odds, you are definitely at more risk on the way to Alton Towers than you are on any of the rides.

Just get some perspective before making knee jerk reactions. Alternatively, keep on with the knee jerk reaction approach, and spend your whole life fearing things that don't need to be feared.

I thought they stopped the 20% food and drink?

Favourite theme park!

Don't forget life or sickness insurance on top of these prices? cough cough

Stayed here in October last year. Rooms are basically converted shipping containers. They're comfortable and clean, but as mentioned have no windows except for the round one in the door. One double bed and two bunk beds, so a family of 4 max. Stayed just me and my son for Fright Nights. Our air-con was fine, could switch it on and off at will. The TV was another matter, it wouldn't go off unless I switched it off at the wall. The people on reception are very helpful with any problems with the room and sort things out quickly.

The hour of fast track in the morning is useful, but although you can get in the park at 9.45 the rides don't start until gone 10am. Good for getting the busy rides done first though. One thing against Thorpe Park is its queue management is terrible, with the big coasters easily pushing 3 hour waits. Worse still, when the announcement at one ride was saying 2+ hours, the display screens in the park were saying 90 minutes. Expect to either queue for most of your day or shell out for fast track tickets if you want to do more than three coasters in a day.

It says there is no swimming pool..at a shark hotel.

Do the sharks come with frickin laser beams at least?

What do people expect for this money? A 5 star hotel???

Shark Hotel is my favourite

Wow that does look a bloody small room, with 2 kids in there as well... Hardly what I'd call a place to 'chill' lmfao

Was up there yesterday, didn't stay there but walked past the "hotel". … Was up there yesterday, didn't stay there but walked past the "hotel". All I can say is they look like someone has decorated and plumbed a port-a-cabin!!! For all I know it Might be great but from looks alone I'm not sure I'd stay in them.Great price for 2 days and a stay over though.


Not even a porta cabin, they ARE containers. Like the ones transferred from ferries, trains and lorries. An ok price would be £25-£50. It is a bed for the night and that is it.

Haven't even put the name of the place in the title, which is impressive given how long and illegible the title is. Cold.
