You guys are not making this easy. Well I'm 19 years old, so I guess chessington would be off the list? As i've heard alot of people say its mostly for families with young children?

I suspect people will only have been to their nearest park, unless they are a fanatic.
Alton Towers always gets top marks from me!

Chessington is good for kids not really for teens and older, thorpe park has brilliant rides - Saw is amazing! Alton is still the best out the 3, 13 is meant to be cool.

Which theme park has more high thrill to medium thrill rides? I mean thrill rides are fun n all but it's not the only rides I want to try

Noted down for youtube viewing.

I am in East London too - I found AT a killer to do there and back in one day (me being the only driver). Last time we stayed over in a hotel.

I wasn't that amazed at the rides, depends if/when you last went.

The good ones are Rita, Nemesis, Oblivion, Ripsaw - can't remember what Hex and Air are. Also there are the Flume and Runaway Mine Train and now there is 13.

Thorpe Park is MUCH nearer and I am dying to go on the Saw ride and maze. I havent been for about 12 years, though. Maybe someone else can list the 'thrill rides' for Thorpe Park for you to compare? :thumbsup:

HTH

£17 entry to AT if you want it :thumbsup:
