COVID-19 – Information for Guests:
1st November marked the final day of the main theme park season here at Thorpe Park Resort and we can honestly say 2020 has certainly been a year like no other. Thank you to everyone who has visited us, it will be a season we will all remember for years to come.
Passholders - In line with the Government’s response to COVID-19 and its most recent announcement yesterday, we must temporarily close Thorpe Park Resort from 5th November and as such this means that the pre-planned Passholder Event on 6th November has now been cancelled. While we had been looking forward to welcoming you, our guests, for a safe, thrilling day out in November, the health and wellbeing of you and our staff is our top priority.
We now enter into our usual annual winter maintenance programme until we re-open the park in Spring 2021. We look forward to welcoming you back next year!

Theme Park Information
We have reopened our Theme Park and Hotel with reduced numbers and a range of hygiene and safety measures to protect you and our employees. You can find out more about these measures here.
Following the Government update on 9th September, we ask guests not to visit in groups of more than six people* to help protect themselves and each other. Our team of dedicated Crowd Marshalls will be reminding guests of this, and the other social distancing measures we have in place.
As a COVID-19 Secure venue we can still host larger numbers in total but groups of up to 6 must not mix or form larger groups.
We also ask that you help us support NHS Test & Trace by downloading the NHS COVID-19 app before you visit and use the QR Codes around the Resort to check in throughout your trip.
Wearing face masks is mandatory in some areas of the Resort, including all indoor spaces, shops, hotel receptions and ride buildings, and on some of our rides and attractions. Where mask wearing is required, any guests over the age of 11 without a valid exemption will not be permitted to ride or enter any enclosed buildings without a mask.
Guests who simply do not wish to wear a mask will now be refused entry to our rides, attractions and buildings. In indoor restaurants and cafes, guests will be allowed to remove their masks to eat and drink once they have sat down.
This is in line with recent updated UK Government advice and regulations across England, which we continue to monitor closely.
We ask all guests planning to visit our Resort to please respect each other, our employees and our guidelines on maintaining good hygiene and a safe distance between households.
Please postpone your visit if you or anyone from your household displays any symptoms of COVID-19 and if you are visiting from an area in a local lockdown we ask you to follow the government guidance to help protect fellow guests and staff.
In addition, if you live in an area which is subject to travel restrictions and you have pre-booked Theme Park tickets your tickets can be revalidated for use in the 2021 season. Please visit this page to move your booking. If you have a Short Break and need to move the dates, please visit the Help Centre who will be able to help you rearrange your booking.
