“Not worth what you pay for, rude crowd”

Written on: 18/04/2016 by Mehtaji (1 review written)

Thorpe Park does not return what you pay for. Secondly it is a complete mess so far as health and safety is concerned, risk information for rides is not displayed prominently, Inadequte sign posting, the crowds who visit are too rude, walking in the park to reach your vehicle is a risk too as youths drive too fast in the car park when they leave, there are no speed bumps to tackle this problem. Finally the rides are too fast and can get one dizzy especially people who are 45 plus. I will not… Read Full Review

“fright night”

Written on: 01/11/2014 by edcliv (1 review written)

What a rip off. 45.00 for a ticket. arrived at park by 17.00. Only to find the owners had set no limit on number of tickets sold, with profit only in mind they had no interest in the public. We stayed until late and only managed to get on two rides. With queuing times of 120 mins on some rides we just didn't bother. The stewards seem to just give up due too to many numbers.LEAVING WAS A NIGHTMARE. No traffic control. Would not recommend this place to my worst enemy… Read Full Review

“Pleasantly Surprised ”

Written on: 13/09/2014 by AVeryPrivateGentleman1 (1 review written)

This Article May Contain Spoilers: I read a lot of reviews about this venue and the results are mixed especially in the last two and a half years. I must say to kick off, I was very pleasantly surprised. I am extremely very difficult to please and it does take a lot to impress me, especially on a first occasion. I must comment to the OnLine staff, truly superlative, highly courteous, relatively quick to reply. This method of contact was extremely impressive however the lack of a 01 or 02 or… Read Full Review

“Recent visit”

Written on: 21/08/2014 by EliannaDavies (1 review written)

My wife, myself and our son recently visited Thorpe Park. We did a two day package and thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were always smiling, courteous and helpful, it seemed nothing was too much trouble which made the experience much better for us. I am finding it difficult to find fault, however, the only criticism I can think of is that during busy times, when the queues were long, some of the rides were going round with enpty seats, so I think a single riderline would alleviate some of the… Read Full Review

“Overcrowded Thorpe park”

Written on: 21/08/2014 by O'Leary53 (1 review written)

I went to Thorpe park 18/08/14 My gripe is the amount of major rides breaking down throughout the day namely Nemesis Samurai all day out of action. The ride Saw had scheduled maintenance, down till 4.00PM in the afternoon, Slammer kept breaking down. In 9 hours there I only managed to go on 7 rides, Here is the rides and queuing times: Detonator 1.0 HRS Queue Swarm 1.5 HRS Queue Colossus 2.0 HRS Queue Slammer 0.45 HRS Queue Vortex 0.20 HRS Queue Rush 0.45 HRS… Read Full Review

I visited Thorpe park today,was good day out,although i bought my tickets online and the signage for online tickets at the entrance is poor,no staff were around to help you go to the right queue.only one baby changing room! which made it difficult and the queuing times stated for each ride was not updated quick enough,and differed quite alot to the actual queuing time, overall a good day out,staff on rides friendly.would go again!… Read Full Review

“Been in love for years! ”

Written on: 22/05/2014

We me and my family brought our first Merlin Passes as a treat for ourselves after we finally came into some money after a very hard time financially about 5 years ago. At the time myself and my sisters were young teenagers and frankly the idea of Thorpe Park terrified us! We left it until the last day of the summer that year before we finally went and that was honestly the biggest mistake we could've made! As I'm the oldest I was going through a "nothing scares me I can go on anything!"… Read Full Review

“What a rip-off! ”

Written on: 12/05/2014 by bgHolland31 (1 review written)

I wasted £20 worth of Clubcard vouchers on this. I had hoped you could walk around and look at some nice gardens and sit down for a coffee with a nice view, but this place is all about rides and nothing else. Sorry, wrong - it's all about fleecing people. First mistake was to e-mail the park with some practical questions - what made me think they'd bother to answer? Silly me. They have a contact page but apparently don't bother to check it. My friend and I arranged to meet there, not knowing… Read Full Review

“Very poorly maintained”

Written on: 17/10/2013 by maryrobsonhrh (2 reviews written)

My family and I went to the park for a day out and were very unimpressed with the level of maintenance. We bought fast track tickets because we know that the waits are long. there is not much the operators can do about that and the fast track was good. One thing that the operators do have control over however is the level of litter collection and the general level of paintwork and presentation of the park. It just said saving money to me and I was upset because we definitely did not save money… Read Full Review

“AVOID STAY AT HOME”

Written on: 05/09/2013 by davidjayo (21 reviews written)

What a complete waste of money, costs about £10 a ride per person, 60-120 mins waiting times!!! toilets always getting blocked, then NO TOILETS at all, food outlets dirty, grumpy staff, why go somewhere for this treatment, and customer service was awful dealing with my complaint, I was not satisfied with the outcome, I would never return, not only this my girl is 1.2m high so she cannot go on any decent rides she has to be 1.4m, we now go to a lovely place on Southend sea front, rides not as… Read Full Review

“Terrible day!!!”

Written on: 30/08/2013 by likegoodthemeparks (1 review written)

For our annual summer holidays theme park trip me, my kids and my friend and her nephew thought we would try Thorpe park as a change from the more usual choices of Drayton Manor an Alton towers. What a costly mistake!!! During summer hols we fully expect some queing time but 3 rides in 8 hours?????? multiple problems with rides breaking down or not being open in the first place. A truly awful experience !!! Whilst the rides we did manage to get on were good, it just didnt make up for the… Read Full Review

“disabled visitors beware”

Written on: 05/06/2013 by johnsond (1 review written)

Our day at Thorpe Park started badly and went down hill from there. When we first arrived (Two Disabled adults one with M.S and the other cerable palsy, both in wheelchairs, and carers), we had to go and register. The girl on the desk wanted proof of our disabilities, fair enough, so we showed our Kent county council registration card. Not good enough she said. What about our blue mobility car badges with pics on to prove who we are. Not good enough she said. How about the letter saying we are… Read Full Review

“Good but needs a little work”

Written on: 07/02/2013 by Jason10808 (1 review written)

Thorpe Park is an excellent theme park with alot of thrill rides, it is great for teenagers and has some of the best roller coasters in the country, the new ride the Swarm has very good themeing and is a very exciting roller coaster seeing as your sat on the side of the track, but it is a little tacky and organised, i visited in April of 2012, all of the rides were open and as far as i was aware none of them closed, i do not really mind if they close a ride, because after all it is all health… Read Full Review

“Thorpe Park is the best!!!!!”

Written on: 27/01/2013 by kidcustard14 (1 review written)

As it says in my review title, thorpe park is simply the best. Every thrill ride is great and scary at the same time. The swarm which was new for 2012 was awesome, although I was absolutely petrified, especially when we got to the top and saw that we were going to go upside down before we thought! I liked Saw the ride the best as it is one of the scariest there along with stealth. Stealth was probably the highest ride i'd ever been on in my life let alone the highest in the park. I didn't like… Read Full Review

“Great Day Out”

Written on: 14/01/2013 by paulabeth4 (2 reviews written)

This is a great park for small kids. i took my 7 year old and 9 year old and they had a great day and smiled all the way home. Great rides both fast and not so fast!! Great stalls and shops sellinf merchandise. The only con is the price of the day out. Be prepared to spend a good bit of money. Tickets are nearly £100 for a family. Overall though worth taking the kids and better than Chessington or Lego land but not as good as Disney Paris or Alton Towers… Read Full Review

“Spoilt at the end of the day”

Written on: 05/10/2012 by Sarahlouise21 (1 review written)

My best friend and I visited the park for the first time today. We were so excited! The rides we went on were amazing. The food we ate was ok too. The only 2 things that really let the day down were, the ride, Colosuss was closed and we had to wait an hour for a bus back to the closest railway station of Staines. There were over 400 people standing in the cold, some couldn't fit under the canopy and were out in the rain! The park closed at 5pm so naturally the bus stop quickly filled up… Read Full Review
