Happy Easter From Thorpe Park

This weekend is Easter Sunday and we know that as soon as you’ve caved and eaten a whole chocolate egg, you’ll be heading down to Thorpe Park!

Theme parks are busy places over the holidays so check out our top tips for making the most of your day over a hopefully sunny Easter Sunday!


The Early Bird Catches the Discount

Book online right now! You’ll earn a whopping discount on your entry price and be able to sail straight through the turnstiles when you arrive!

And while we’re making savings, why not grab your car parking too! You’ll earn another fab discount and be able to make a smooth exit at the end of the day, allowing maximum chocolate eating time when you get home!

We love a lie-in as much as the next thrill seeker but we also understand the primal need to ride roller coasters at 10am on a Sunday morning.

We would suggest arriving as early as possible. Beat the traffic, beat the queues and make a dash to some of our big players at the beginning of the day. Start on the Stealth/Swarm side of the Island and work your way towards Colossus/Saw throughout the day!


Chip and Win

We will be cashless on Easter Sunday so your transactions can be as quick as Stealth! No need to worry about that loose change falling out of your pocket on Colossus.


Mix It Up Your Way

Coke Freestyle has arrived at Thorpe Park! Hundreds of delicious flavour combinations to hold off your thirst, and a smart Freestyle Vessel to keep and re-use during future visits!

You can buy your ‘Freestyle Vessel’ from the following locations: The bridge as you enter, The Dome, The Megastore and the Nemesis Fastrack Shop!

There are three packages available! (Discount for Passholders)

1 vessel £10

2 Vessels £18

3 Vessels £24

Keep hold of your cup and reactivate the chip during your next visit for only £6! (Discount for Passholders). The Freestyle Refresh and Refill stations can be found in: The Dome, at Rush, Amity Kebabs, Tidal Wave and the Nemesis Inferno Shop.

Make sure you grab yours at the beginning of the day to maximise your mixes!


Don’t Get in a Flap, Download the App

Have you downloaded our new and improved app? This thing is amazing and allows guests to hold Thorpe Park in the palm of their hand!

App users can enjoy a fully interactive park map, live queue times, resort information and an in-app shop where you can do everything from booking a cosy stay at the Shark Hotel to ordering your pass for a season of experiences Like No Other!


We hope these tips help you make the most of your day. Have a thrilling Easter!

Latest information regarding Coronavirus

Further to recent updates from the Government on the response to the Covid-19 coronavirus outbreak, we have taken the very difficult decision to close Thorpe Park Resort until further notice.

Have a short break booked when the Resort is closed?
Following the latest Government guidelines (issued on 10th May), and given the continued uncertainty about when we will be able to reopen, we are now asking guests with short breaks booked between 1st June up to and including 3rd July to move your booking free of charge (subject to availability). Please visit the Manage My Booking site to rearrange your booking.

Have a Park ticket pre-booked when the Resort is closed?
If you have booked a ticket to visit Thorpe Park Resort during the closure period your ticket will be valid for use on any date during the 2020 season (excluding FRIGHT NIGHTS and pre-advertised closed dates as outlined on our website). Further information for guests with pre-booked and promotional tickets will be published on our website prior to opening.

We are determined to be here for you, your friends and your family offering otherworldly thrills and helping you create fantastic memories as we have done for decades and will continue to do for many more.

We’ll be sharing our full plans soon. In the meantime, please keep smiling, clapping and supporting each other. See you soon!
