Tidal Wave at Thorpe Park

The whole family can experience an adrenaline rush this May Half Term at the nation’s Thrill Capital, Thorpe Park. Younger adrenaline fans* will be able to ‘cut their coaster teeth’ on the Park’s redesigned X rollercoaster while older thrill seekers** can ‘brave it backwards’ on THE SWARM, the UK’s first winged rollercoaster. PLUS there’s some of the best theme park rides this side of Florida, five water rides and the Park’s new onsite accommodation, The Crash Pad.

Thrill seekers of all ages can ride on a wave of light and sound on X, an evolution of Thorpe Park’s popular X: No Way Out indoor rollercoaster. With a new lower height restriction of just 1m the junior coaster offers a thrilling, illuminated ride through dynamic coloured lighting and dance music.

Junior thrill seekers can enjoy rides like the gravity defying Zodiac and manic carpet ride of Quantum, plus with the weather warming up, five super-soaking water rides, including Tidal Wave, Storm Surge and the classic Logger’s Leap, will thrill the whole family. And those who have reached the hallowed height of 1.4m can brave the Park’s iconic coasters - THE SWARM, SAW – The Ride, Colossus, Stealth and Nemesis Inferno.

Those wanting to make a mini break out of it, and go from ‘dream to scream’ can stay at Thorpe Park’s new onsite accommodation – The Crash Pad – which opened recently. The cosy rooms, which sleep up to four, are perfect for families and exceptionally good value for money priced from £64 per person including two days at the Park and breakfast.
